Something happened this year that instantly made me one of the happiest girls in Manhattan (at least that's how it felt!). Since I started this site a few years ago, I always dreamed of where this little blog of mine would take me. I never would have imagined it would have led me to New York City, let alone to be invited to Diane von Furstenberg's flagship store in Meatpacking. It was definitely one of those pinch me moments that brought out all of the crazy thoughts like, "Me? Okay wait, are you sure you have the right girl?"

I dreamed of a moment like this, but never ever thought it would come about so quickly upon moving here. Diane has been one of my biggest style icons for as long as I can remember. Not to mention, someone that I've admired and looked up to for years! She is the true definition of a 'girl boss' in my book. 

I can't even explain what feelings were going through me while I left the Upper East Side that day in a cab and en route to her studio. My heart was honestly in my throat it seemed like. I met with Chantal, one of DVF's reprensatives and fellow DVF girl, and she walked me through the entire Spring Collection. Playing dress up, and spending time around Diane's  beautiful creations was simply incredible. 

I didn't think it would get any better, until it DID. I was dubbed an official DVF Girl, and will be able to work more closely with the brand this year. This has by far been the biggest highlight of all my years of blogging (and quite possibly my life!). I feel so honored to have been chosen by Diane and her team to represent the brand, and am so thrilled to see this new collaboration blossom. 

Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would find myself with this opportunity. Opening my heart and stepping out on a limb to be in New York has been the biggest blessing and best decision I could have ever made, but (also the scariest!) I am so happy that I took that massive leap of faith to be here. I couldn't picture my life without this city, and being able to work on LM here has been the most amazing blessing.

Always remember, that no matter how big or difficult to reach your dreams may seem, it's important to never ever ever ever give up! (BIG emphasis on EVER) Anything is possible with a little bit of faith and hard work. xx 



A huge thank you to Diane and her team for having me, and to my wonderful photographer and best (Miryam Gabrielle) for capturing every moment of this unforgettable day.
