The Best of 2015

This year was truly amazing. It was kind of like my year of "YES". I did a lot & said yes to a lot of opportunities before fear had the chance to creep in & allow that little voice in my head to talk me out of it.

1. Traveling Solo to Vegas

In February I went to the MAGIC tradeshow that goes on every year in Vegas. I applied for a press pass & was actually granted one for all 3 days. I had no one to go with, but it didn't matter. With a packed schedule I figured I'd be able to keep busy & I did. Besides, when you travel solo, it doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be alone. I met a lot of people & ended up having a good time. 

2. Public Speaking Engagements

Right after I came back from Vegas, I was asked to speak to teenage girls at a high school here in Atlanta about how to dress appropriately. Now I had joined a public speaking group called Toastmasters, but y'all I still was scared to do this! One reason is because I'm an introvert & two was because of the age range. With high school I was just thinking these girls are going to be like "What do you have to tell me". To my surprise, the girls actually listened and they liked it! 

 The following month I was invited to speak at an empowerment tea about dressing for formal events. That went really well too. Listen guys, I just happen to like fashion. I never even considered that I would be able to speak anywhere about it & make an impact. I, also, never thought my love of fashion would lead me to having a business organizing closets, but here I am almost 2 years in. I guess sometimes you have to stretch your vision beyond what you see.  

3. NU ICONS Magazine Feature 

Back in April I had my first ever magazine feature in NU ICONS magazine that is based in Switzerland which was so dope! Shout out to Gray. I was so grateful for the opportunity. 


Over the summer I went to Bermuda for their annual fashion festival. This was another one of those "Don't overthink it, Go" moments. I happened to ask Shiona T. on instagram if her island of Bermuda had a fashion week and she replied yes. I followed through from there and ended up going to check it out. I was going by myself at first too, but my cousin actually decided to join me like 3 days before I left which was crazy! lol Guys this was one of the best places I have ever been! I had the best time and I even stayed on an Air BnB yacht instead of a regular hotel.  

5. NYFW 

I've been to New York Fashion Week before, but this year was my best one yet because I was able to get into a lot more shows this season. I connected with some amazing people as well. 


My last honorable mention is that I finally got to go to Art Basel in Miami for the first time. I didn't cover it on the blog because honestly I was there for my friend's birthday and I didn't feel like it just wanted to chill. We did more partying than seeing art though. Miami was lit as the kids say. lol 

I don't know what 2016 has in store, but I have a feeling its going to top this year.  Whatever happens, I just want to let go and be even more open to new possibilities.
