Hey guys IMPORTANT NOTICE as I'm fully confident that I can live comfortably off the sale of this one hat alone until I die, today will be my official last day of trading/working forever. It's been a good run but man it feels good to be free! Thanks for all the support over the last few years if you need me I'll be living in the penthouse suite of the Rialto smoking Port Royal eating crispy bacon and putting my shoes on with a shoe horn for all eternity 📶☑️🏧
#10yearchallenge is especially meaningful to me. It’s been 10 years since I’ve graduated college and made the conscious decision to not choose the traditional path. Instead I chose to “MAKE IT IN FASHION” (my exact words😩). This was the first picture I took as a step towards my “Career”. This photo was meant to go on the front on my business card🤦🏾♀️.
While I laugh at some of my attempts. I can’t help but be proud and grateful for 23 year old me and the gumption I had to follow my dreams. I had no clue the road that was ahead. 10 years of people doubting and asking “why aren’t you using your degree”.
Working in retail for most of those years because it was the closes connection I had with fashion (here in Houston). I was unknowingly fearless and ambitious.
In a few weeks I’ll be celebrating 1 year as a full time entrepreneur.
Here I am in the midst of seeing the fruits of my labor and faith with @shoprandomandchic and @slayforachange
I remained true to who I am. This road has not been easy but it’s been so rewarding. I now can see all that I went through-good and bad. It was apart of the plan! Cheers to 23 year old me..you the real MVP. And it doesn’t hurt that I haven’t really aged🤷🏾♀️
On the 8 track stereo tonight: "Top Hits of '76". It was originally a Connie Francis 8 track that belonged to my grandparents, but my father taped over it 😂 On it is an end-of year radio countdown program from 1976. Love the DIY pen cover art too. This tape is truly a moment in time like no other 🧡⭐
I will report back with what's on it! What are your guesses as to which tracks will feature?? ⚡
