No. 130 // A SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT

THROWBACK // 

A look back at our in-studio shoot for the upcoming Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen line for Nordstrom!

Question: Do you ever miss working in Merchandising?

Answer: Um, almost every single day! Which is why I am SO excited to announce my newest project. Over the past year I have been working with Nordstrom on a collaboration with Halogen! I hope you will love the collection as much as I do! It launches October 22nd and you can get all the details on site…

No. 129 // THE UNEXPECTED

THROWBACK // 

Come fall, I love nothing more than an unexpected monochromatic look – like this all Tory look from last November!

Question: What to you is the hardest thing about being an influencer/blogging?

Answer: For me it is a completely different type of exhaustion in comparison to the corporate world. As an influencer, the expectations on projects are not always clear, you are working with so many different partners and clients (all with different working styles), and the outcome is solely on you. Oftentimes I can feel very burnt out emotionally. Trying to anticipate the unexpected, and always staying ‘on’ is simply draining at times. To that end, many of the social platforms that are trending, and much of social media in general, is moving to more gritty and real-time sharing. This is the hardest part as, quite frankly, it’s not all that interesting to me. I’ve always wanted to focus on fashion and style! I also tend to be more of a private person in general (despite sharing my personal style with the world wide web), so all of this oversharing has become a bit of a tough spot for me.  I have to be more strategic about drawing boundaries and finding ways to be relatable and show some of my personality without feeling as though my day-to-day privacy is being violated. All of that being said, I absolutely love my job, and am more excited than ever to dive into new  creative projects that play to my strengths. In fact, I have a big one being announced tomorrow!

No. 128 // SORRY FOR THE HIATUS!

THROWBACK // 

So looking forward to crisp and cool weather. The above shot was taken in Vermont around this time of last year. Lots of travel coming up over the next three weeks. I am heading to Montreal, Chicago, and have a trip out to the west coast. Stay tuned for all of the updates!

Question: Are you still doing the Notepad section of the site?

Answer: Yes! I am so, so sorry. Thank you for your patience and understanding. The truth is that I have been wrapped up in completing a larger project that has pulled me in an entirely different direction. Excited to announce it on Wednesday of this week!
