This year for my birthday i wanted to embrace myself. So instead of allowing people to celebrate my birthday in a way that they wanted, which is fine. This time i wanted to know what it felt like to do what I wanted. So the majority of my adult birthdays have been filled with activities people thought i should partake in for MY birthday. Kind as it may, the result was me spending the last 3 years in complete exile on my birthdays because i simply didnt know how to celebrate myself. Also i believe i celebrate myself often, so going all out would just be over kill because i nurture the fuck out of myself.
This year I wanted to create for myself as a gift to myself. I spend most of my days sewing away for others bringing out the confidence in so many throughout the year. I create for myself on occasion but never just to have a wardrobe that reflects my personality, style, and charge.This year, i plan to create 31 looks that speaks to who i am and the journey in which ive been on for my life. For this collection i wanted everyone to see me. And i share myself i feel, but the bit of myself that easily digestible and inviting. With this collection i want everyone to see ME. Sexy, edgy, shameless, fearless, and happy. Genuinely happy with the woman i have become along the many upturns and down sides to my journey.
Most importantly i want to convey the brand in its true light. Not the box in which i created for it to maintain, but the limitless possibility that is my art, my reason, and my expression. This birthday i reflect on self love, and what it means to truly cater to yourself. Not be selfish, egotistical, or self absorbed; but just to cater to you. Making decisions on your own behalf to respect to how you solely feel, engaging and indulging in your desires, embarking on your whims and visions. I intend to step into the realm of never holding back and going for it all because at the end of the day what else were we really here to do anyway. So here's to 31 since someone is counting. But for me, cheers to love, life, and health, Heres to more abundance.
