"To Live a Creative Life"

Lately I've been finding a lot of inspiration via instagram. Quotes that help keep me going, and photos from established designers and stylists living it all out. I've also found myself struggling with the thought of starting vs. not starting due to "fear" of the unknown or what others may think.

I started this blog to document my journey within the industry of Fashion, but I've fallen a little short of that mission. While I feel that I've been putting up some pretty great interesting posts; I haven't styled a photo shoot in months, nor have I been sketching and attempting to construct my own garments.. a shame really lol. I know what I want to do, and how I want to do it, but the hardest part is STARTING. These photos via instagram really made me think.. I need to kick myself in the butt, get going, and never stop. Happy Monday!

Window Shopping at MulEh

Concluding my  afternoon meeting at Bus Boys and Poets, I decided to take a stroll down 14th ST and visit some boutiques for a bit of inspiration. One of my favorite places to stop while in the Ust neighborhood is MulEh, a High End Contemporary Designer boutique.

 When I tell you EYEGASMS for DAYS! I mean just that lol. If your girl was rolling in dough I'd definitely shop here with no hesitation. From the home decor to the clothing.. It is nothing short of amazing. Their carefully and thoughtfully selected items that fill the boutique is what separates them from everywhere else. Housing well known brands such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Vivian Westwood, to brands I'd never heard of and will be googling lol. The vibe and aesthetic is very modern and crisp, right up my alley. Apparently you are suppose to set up an appointment before you can take photos in the boutique (clearly I had no clue) but they let me slide.. WIN.

For the Boys.. Custo Barcelona FW 13

Oh how excited I was that NYFW was being streamed for the Fall/Winter 2013 Collections. I wish I could have just sat and watched show after show, but a girl must work lol. Today I am featuring my favorite looks for the boys from Custo Barcelona's FW 13 collection. I've been a fan of Custo's pieces since visiting his store/showroom in Soho a few years ago thanks to my friend Shannon. Custo's use of color, prints, band textiles are just amazing, definetly "High Street." If you are a guy who is into cool prints, textures and colors, then Custo's line has those perfect pieces for sure.
