First Time Is A Charm: Natalia Borecka Introducing Kelsey Harding

You know that feeling when you meet someone and instantly you can tell they're going to be famous? Kelsey Harding of SMG is one of those people. Believe it or not, this was her first official photo shoot. Prior to this shoot she had no experience in theater or modeling. She was a natural! The photographer and I were in awe at how good she was at taking direction, coming up with poses, and pretty much nailing every single shot. Let's just say this little starlett is going to be known for her adorable button nose and gap! Word on the streets this fresh young face has already landed a huge modeling contract in The Big Apple!

The Greatest: Version 2.0

It's not that I don't have material to blog about, I've just been too engaged in one of two things...work and play. Everything in between just doesn't seem relevant. Anyway, to update you all on what's been going on in my life. I was in limbo for awhile whether or not I should stay in Seattle or move back to Los Angeles...shit maybe even New York. I even considered Philadelphia, Atlanta, and a few other random cities. But I've been blessed with so many amazing opportunities here at "home" that it would be foolish if I left when things started to pick up.

In the past couple of months I've moved into a new apartment (my first time ever living alone, no roomie, no significant other, no siblings), I started a new job, picked up more freelance styling gigs, started partying more, and finally felt the effects of being "busy".

I moved into a new apartment in the epicenter of Seattle. Just a couple of blocks from Pike Place Market. Ever since I settled into my new place I've been discovering new things about this city. At my current job I am in charge of the online fashion marketing/ branding. I'm in the process of launching a clothing line, and though it's far from glamorous I've been given complete creative freedom to direct the brand. Aside from my day job I work closely with an agency that's been so great about referring me to freelance styling work. Overall I'm keeping busy in the fashion side of things.

But my days and nights aren't all fashion motivated. I'm reconnecting with old friends, making new friends. Setting up creative projects, partying, and all of that. I guess this is what many might refer to as "the good life". Laughter is inevitable these days and fun is a prerequisite in anything I do.

I guess that pretty much sums up the past couple of months. I know I've been so inconsistent with updating this blog, but I do hope my readers/ followers are still tuning in.

A to Z: Holiday Look book Preview

I have been so busy these past couple of months that I haven't had the time to update! While I am still styling here and there I've been putting more time and energy into production/ creative direction. I'm currently in the process of rebranding a wholesale line called A to Z tees. First thing is first...Holiday 2010 look book. Next step...new e-commerce website!
