happy friday

The harder you work, the luckier you get!

This week has been amazing for me! I'm sitting here in my hotel room with a view of the Empire State building preparing to attend Jason Wu's fashion show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. <----- Look at that sentence. Six months ago, I would have never imagined that coming out of my mouth. Although I'm always a hopeful & open minded person, I often find myself working so hard that I don't really anticipate the results of said work. My colleagues here at this event are all older, more established designers, some have very popular blogs & thousands of Twitter followers. The labels being carried around vary from Gucci to Prada to Louis Vuitton. I'm not there yet! But what I do know is that I've been writing this little blog for over 4 years now, I've made some amazing accomplishments within my short career in design & it finally hit me today that hard work DOES pay off! Even when you can't see how the pieces are coming together, if you work hard, are genuinely nice & believe in yourself, great things happen!

So whatever you're working on this week or weekend, keep it up!!
