Thanksgiving is a beautiful holiday. Not only do I get to share my birthday with a day designated for thanks this year, but it's a holiday that gives us the time to sit back, reflect, rethink, realign and recharge as we fill our bellies with wonderful things and count all of our blessings. Then upon cleaning and putting back on our spectacles of gratitude, we enter into the Christmas season free of grumbling and full of love.
Today I specifically wanted to give thanks to each person that reads a piece of my mind each week. Whether it'd be on a styling tip, a new product or brand that I believe in or just some raw from-the-heart kind of material, it's pretty sweet to think we are all connected in some way or another as we give and take from each other's stories. So thank you.
As fashion is the industry I am immersed in daily with design being my profession, building this humble blog has consumed a lot of my time and thought. But as I sit back and take the time to empty my busy mind every so often, I always come to the conclusion that there is nothing more important than taking the time and effort to thank and amplify the good in the people around us. If we could only focus on the good in everyone as if it's all we saw, we would see goodness grow and multiply. And as we build onto the beauty and worth of every human being on this planet, I believe someday we will reach a beautiful collision of love despite all the hate that we see at present in the world. After all, it is always and will always be about people, whatever our vocation, wherever our location. Let us be a people of purpose and always be reminded of the hope that is available to us this holiday season.
Happy Thanksgiving beautiful people! And thank you. For being you.
On another note, here's how to do suede fringe in brown without getting too literal. Give it a modern approach by grounding it in black and throwing in a pop color to pull it together. It's a good way to do fringe without looking too western.
