My 1st Blog Post!

Here it is.  My very first blog post!  I have kept a written journal for several years up until my college days at UCLA, many many moons ago!  Not sure why I stopped writing.  Perhaps it was because my 7+ year relationship ended and I simply did not wish to document that painful chapter in my life.  Or perhaps I stopped writing because I moved from yet another apartment to a new place I would temporarily call my "home". Today, I still can't find the reason why I chose to stop with my personal writing.  I would write down my fears, my regrets, my prayers, my every thought.  I wrote down lyrics to my favorite songs because I believed it brought me closer to the songwriter's heart.  I would be instantly transported to the time when they actually sat down to first write that very song.  I wrote down nearly every song by Sade.   

I have always admired all the beautiful fashion bloggers and all their gorgeous photos in far away places, wearing the most exquisite clothes.  Well, my blog won't necessarily be like that. This blog...my blog, will be, and is an extension of what I hold in my thoughts and close to my heart.  I don't wish to make it simply about fashion or my outfit of the day.  This will be more than that because I am more than the clothes I wear.  The fact is, although I do love fashion and own an online boutique, it is still only a small part of my life.  I want to share what I am feeling, the books I'm reading, the music I listen to, or the wacky documentaries I watch.  I want to introduce you to the people I love and share my life with.  I want to share what inspires me and hopefully inspire you by doing so.  I have many flaws.  I am not tall or thin like a model.  I am insecure.  I cry. I get lonely even when I'm surrounded by tons of people.  With that being said, I hope that you continue to watch this space and find some inspiration here.

My first blog post features the Desert Wanderer Playdress by Spell & the Gypsy Collective. The brand was created by two sisters living in Byron Bay, Australia.  I will be sharing a lot more from this amazing label in my future blog posts!  This playdress is so easy to wear and I especially love Spell's signature hem line that goes up at the hips.  It is a unique touch, which makes for a very flattering fit for someone like me who is on the curvier side!  I have styled it here with the Thunderbird Belt by lovestrength and the Crossbody Fringe Bag by The Boho Bazaar.

Thank you for reading...keep shining!

P.S.  A special thank you to Kimberly Lucero.  Thank you dear friend, for encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and face my own fears and insecurities. You have been a real catalyst for me so that I could make this blog a reality.  Thank you for inspiring me!
