It’s Hard to Admit But It’s Time for Change

It’s Hard to Admit But It’s Time for Change

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve shifted my focus recently…

There I said it!

I’ve shifted from exclusively focusing on the blog to channeling my energy into my in-person and online event series and community, Ditch the Clique.

But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean I’m leaving THIS space!

Ditch the Clique ONLINE

Ditch the Clique ONLINE

In my most recent email newsletter I shared how I’m spending my quarantine time. Yes I’ve rearranged my office, caught up on my favorite reality TV shows, and dressed up for NO REASON, but this extra time at home REALLY has me doing A LOT of thinking. Particularly I’ve been thinking about what motivates us as women.  Sure, I’ve thought about this before, but now more than EVER I truly recognize the importance of connection. GIRL I don’t know about YOU, but I know I am much more inspired and empowered to be the best me (AND go after my dreams) when I’m surrounded by other empowered, inspired, and motivated women!

The first of many Ditch the Clique events was hosted in my hometown of Pennsylvania, with the New York City kick off event launching Spring 2020!

NYFW Fall/Winter 2020 Recap

And just like that, New York Fashion Week has come and gone (AGAIN!)

February is fashion month (I know, that happened fast right?) and I’m still on a high from last season! September’s NYFW was the VERY best yet, not only providing me the opportunity to attend a dozen INCREDIBLE shows, but it was a space to network with inspiring and empowering women in the industry, too!

And don’t worry, this season has lived up to the expectation AND MORE!

One of my FAVORITE things about NYFW…

How to attend NYFW with under 5k followers

How to attend NYFW with under 5k followers

Be honest…

Have you ever had a dream (a REALLY BIG dream), but zero idea how to make it a reality?

Yeah girl, I get that. In fact, that was me with NYFW.

As a young fashionista, I grew up dreaming of attending NYFW. Between magazines and media coverage, I would obsess over the designers AND the women attending shows. So naturally, as I got older, I did everything I could to figure out how these women attended NYFW. I googled and researched like CRAZY but still felt clueless.

Eventually my years of obsessively researching and networking in the industry taught me the true purpose of NYFW and exactly who it’s for…

I’ll never forget…

In 8th grade my math teacher asked us to write down our goal for the year. My classmates wrote things like “to get good grades”, “make new friends” and “to excel in sports” but I vividly remember writing “to make a positive difference in the life of one person” …and some goals never change.
