Motivational Monday: The Will To Prepare

"The will to succeed is important but what's more important is the will to prepare."
-Bobby Knight


Art: Jose Romussi

Jose Romussi is a Chilean artist with a design style of taking vintage photographs and adding embroidery and threading designs. I find all of his art pieces intriguing. When the subject of the photographs are disguised by embroidery it make you wonder what lies beneath. Check out some of his work below and click the links to view his collections.

2014: NEW Year

It is crazy I was sitting in class my last semester of college September 2009 and I decided to create a fashion blog. When I started my blog I wanted it to be an open diary documenting my opinion and views with the latest fashion. My blog was the only thing I had that kept my sanity when I moved away for a few months for my internship. I really didn't care how many page views I had or if I made Blogger friends. What mattered the most to me was my blog was my baby I didn't know what I was doing with her (my blog) but I knew she could grow into something and she was helping me grow in many ways. In November 2010, I decided to get a little fancy and get a domain and collaborate with graphic design students to create a logo and attempt to brand myself. In that process I found a hobby for photography. Now fast forwarding to 2013 I realized that I wanted to take my blog into a different direction but I didn't know how so I got a little lazy. Now 2014 I battled with myself just letting my blog go but I won't. I had a vision and purpose when I started I just have to remember why I started. In 2014 I seek to find new dreams, new ways, and a new me!

Happy New Year
