A designer’s photo diary, 3 wks in my life-ish.

The above photos do not [I feel] do the past 3 weeks of my life justice.  I always forget how blessed I am in what I do, and who I surround myself with until I reflect via photos and such all that glitters.  The past 3 weeks of my life have been filled with deadlines, design meetings, red carpets, FNO events, album release’s and taco trucks, lots of outfit options, a weekend away in the woods (via cabin of course), a sail boat ride, and lots and lots of laughter(duh).  Next: apt. hunting, fashion week dreaming, and figuring out my next steps.

A designer’s photo diary, 3 weeks in my life.

The past three weeks of my life have been filled with birthday dinners, celebrations, and one Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed party with my dear birthday twin Miss. Grashio.  I also styled a tv commerical shoot, had many “new job” outtings that included champagne and cupcakes, and started said “new job” as denim/bottoms designer for Bebe.  Not to mention special moments caught in photos that are not to be shared, but a few key ones that must be shared.  Life is grand. xo poni*
