It's good to be back!
As some of you noticed, or none at all, I took a bit of a break from my blog in order to regroup and build a stable foundation for my pup and I. Since then, I FINALLY have my own apartment in the heart of East Village New York. It's a big step for me, committing to something for a year, or anything in general has always been hard for me. With that caused a never ending uncertainty and unhappiness. I was pretty much lost to be honest, and it wasn't fair to myself or my pup to live this life of sporadic unknowingness. I never really realized how important it is to have a foundation. It affects your relationships, your reliability, your family, your motivation, even your sanity. I've also hurt and lost a lot of friends because of it. As a matter of survival, it turned me into an extremely selfish person, I was confused with my way of thinking and not thinking. Instagram became kind of a smoke and mirror to hide my unknown depression, and I started losing touch with not only myself, but my goals. Not realizing that there is hope, and that you can overcome depression, can really make you feel lonely. I turned to drinking and partying as kind of a way to well not face the reality of who I was becoming. I always joke and say my dog Korra saved my life, but it's true. I don't know where I would be today, without her. She really forced me to grow up.
I'm so grateful for all my friends and followers that stuck by me, despite any unfulfilled promises I may have made or any selfish lies I told without thinking how their affects may have had on my character. So honestly thank you, and I'm sorry.
You live, you learn, but more importantly YOU GROW! And that's why I'm excited to share with you guys this new blog post, because I've never been more motivated and excited for what the future may hold. It's a feeling I haven't had in a long time, and to be constantly surrounded by friends that bring me higher and by people who challenge me with new perspectives, is truly amazing. There's no way to move forward, if you keep looking back. We all have a past, and either you can fall victim to it, or let it motivate you to learn from it. Guess which one I chose? They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. Change is never easy but I can't wait for you guys to see what I have in store, and to be on this journey of growing up together.
Okay now that's off my chest, lets talk fashion! I spent the day shooting with cutie, and newfound friend @theedgyhippie! We shot on my roof spontaneously and the skyline in the background mixed with the graffiti and rustic exterior piping, really allowed us to showcase the clothes perfectly. I'm wearing a S/S 17 Dries Van Noten shirt, All Saints Cigarette jeans, Saint Laurent Jodhpur boots, and gold framed Raybans. This shirt is definitely a statement piece, so it was fun to try to wear it with a more casual aesthetic. Or at least as casual as I could :P I can't wait for Summer, rooftop party anyone?
Thanks for listening, & thanks to my good friend Zack for pushing me to be vulnerable for once.
