Gypsy in Love

 I’ve been back in L.A for 2 weeks now! I had an amazing time this summer with friends & family, but it’s time for me to get back on my grind. I'm still working on my own Plus Size collection and online store but at the same time I want to get back into working as a creative director/ designer. Looking for some positions that fit my schedule and try to make everything work, because in the end that’s my dream is to have it all! When I was at FFFWEEK in NY I won the Majestic Feather Caftan from Catherines at the Sonsi Pop up Party. The print and colors on this dress are beautiful!  I made the dress more for me by tying the sides into knots to make the front a bit shorter than the back! With me lately I’ve been in love with the whole Gypsy style. It’s been a style I’ve enjoyed rocking before but in this outfit post I feel the gypsy is alive! (she’s a-live, she’s a-live) I find myself always changing my style and I think that’s what Fashion is all about. Having fun and dressing up into whatever you feel in that moment! My 25th birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks (Sept. 8) and I’m trying to figure out my plans! I really want to hit up Hawaii or Vegas. May just end up doing both!  But I know this dress will be with me at both destination as my ocean/poolside dress!

  6. I work for Catherine's and I haven't seen anyone so much as try on this caftan yet so I'm so happy to see that you made it fashionable and adapted it to your style. I'm a firm believer in having fun with your fashion but not many of the plus size women who come into the store believe they can do that. I will share this post around work and hopefully get some more people excited about all the fun they can have with their looks!
