Summer Skater

Skater dresses has been a must have item for every girl this past year. I've seen so many variations that often too many times they began to look a like. I adore the look, but I wanted something different then what was out there. Of course, you know I had to make my own. 

I decided to use the left over fabric I had from my maxi dress I made, which I posted about early on this season; Summer Leaves (Take a look)

Floral Beauty

As a designer often we get ask what's our inspiration behind our work. Usually it's a long dramatic answer, sometimes it's short and sweet. Can you guess mine?

I'm short an sweet because everything inspires me. Many of times if i don't know what to do, I just talk to my mannequin. I know you guys are about to give me a side eye right now. She talks to mannequins, weirdo but listen, we as individuals put so much pressure on ourselves. This often causes mind roadblocks, especially when it comes to design. It's best to just let it flow.

Simply Elegant

Sometimes simple and bright is the best combination you can wear during the summer season. I love bright colors and two of my favorites are yellow and green. Its something about the two that just screams look at me and when combined seem so effortless and beautiful.

Shine Brighter Than The Sun

Taking pictures has always been something I dread. Mainly because I had to look at myself through a lens, and often I wouldn't feel pretty. I would nit pick at every single thing and would feel horrible about myself after. Self-hatered has been a battle I've been fighting since junior high, due to name calling at school, jokes being played, even negativity in my home.

Must Have Summer Accesories

Everyone has a list of things they must have this season. Honestly speaking every season. However, it's important to have the things that not only complete your style but also go along with more than one outfit in your wardrobe. As women we have the habit of buying all that we love and not having a thing to wear with it. It's great to grab because you can also wear it later. But its best if you grab what's a must-have with a high rate of commitment. Here are my accessory must haves!

These gorgeous Steve Madden nudes from Nastygal. They will take an outfit and give it a dash of edge and class this summer season.

Aurora Dreams

During the summer, it's essential to have on bright colors. It's like a mandatory rule, that you just must always look bright and happy. I honestly apply this rule throughout the year because I love colors. So, much so that a lot of it is reflected in my designs. Including this beautiful maxi skirt.
