A lil glimpse into designer life this evening.... I’ve been editing over 1500 photos from an incredible 10 hour/9 model photoshoot collaboration with @sweetdealclothing that I shot for both our companies two weeks ago. New products just arrived (yep I’ve got a new headband on!), a new website in the making during the day, and a bazillion new photos in editing for content at night is so overwhelming- but SHIT- it is SO rewarding to know I’m living my passion and my dream. So thankful for a lil red wine and amazing friends and family to help me through. I can’t wait to share all these goodies with all y’all! Thanks for your patience with the new site and if I haven’t emailed you back. Things are never as easy as they seem 💜💜💜 #lovesweatandtears#vlstyle#designerlife#photographerlifetoo#andwebdevelopment#jackofalltrades#everythingscomingupviolet#entrepreneurlifestyle

"I love the way textiles so often tell a story. Conveying a history of the maker, or capturing a moment in time that can be treasured forever in the intricate craftsmanship of these timeless, precious pieces."
Dynamic in Dolly Pearl. The is so beyond! More artistic collaborations like this please. I have been craving partnering up with creatives who have something unique to offer—an aesthetic that lines up with my field of vision, and concepts that I find evocative. This means learning to say ‘no’ to projects that don’t mesh with what I’m looking for. Quality over quantity any and everyday. // #designlife#dollypearl#makeart [photography by james blanco, art direction by rose tran]
