Wow, nearly two months since I have posted here! A whole lot has been going on, in my life as well as in my heart and head. I haven't really felt too connected to this space recently, I have been thinking of leaving this blog behind actually and carving a new little space for myself out there. Focusing more on building a portfolio for styling, and not just styling myself, which is what this blog has been for the last three years and nine months. (!)

I have also recently fallen in love, and now he is away on tour for a month with his band, and I am left here to my own devices. Maybe this is the time to really start making a change, when I can really focus on myself again and figure out what it is I truly want to do with my life. Working at Beacon's is great, but I feel like I have been coasting for a while now, and I don't give myself enough credit for the talents I really have. Also, recently working on a short film for Samantha Pleet's Spring/Summer 14 collection, and modeling in her look book has given me a kick in the pants to get going already! I got to work with some really amazing people in both cases, and even made a few connections, I just need to keep the ball rolling is all.

I felt moved to post here again on account of my new Tabernacle dress, courtesy of the lovely Samantha Pleet. I dropped by her studio yesterday to pick it up, I also got a little sneak peek of the video and the look book! Super exciting! And I decided it was high time I make one of these dresses mine. Sam created this style a few years back and it is probably what she is most know for, and unfortunately, most ripped off of as well. Two things I truly admire about Sam's designs are the amazing construction and how well she has a proper fit down. Being that I have now tried on most of it, the knows fit, and that is super important, especially when it comes to a smaller production like her. She has got it down, and I can't wait to see the places she goes!

Such an amazing dress... Samantha Pleet is amazing. Just looking at the twisting detail and thinking about how to do that makes my head hurt a bit.

We were talking about you wanting to diversify what you do and leave the blog behind a couple of weeks back. I think you should definitely move onwards and upwards. You know when a job you loved at the beginning starts to stifle you that it's time to change direction.

(I kind of think you should keep the blog though, at least for a while. It's something you built that does have some influence, and I think it can help you. Just my two cents) :)
