Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Mary Jane Russell in Dior Dress, Paris, 1950

“Step into your story. Play the starring role in the epic that you are scripting, because this is your life. The best of everything will be created by the people who can fill the biggest shoes they were meant to fill. The world needs you to give your dreams direction. Tell yourself an amazing story and make it come true.”

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light, which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”
Woodrow Wilson

“We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem—even to you — I don’t care: You have to let that out.”

Hello, lovelies.

Quick break in between the madness of Fashion Week posts and more exciting fashion and beauty content for a quick plug! Recently, “B for Bel” (aka Belinda) interviewed me for her “Never Worked a Day” blog series. In her own words:

Never Worked a Day is a series of interviews about people who are working, or are working towards, their dream jobs. A large bulk of us is still paying our dues towards that ambition, or is still actively searching for it. No matter our circumstances, I’ve always found that listening to inspiring people who have somehow found the courage, perseverance and admirable fervor to weave those dreams into a very tangible reality, acts as a huge propeller for us to discover and live our own passions.

It was a great, fun interview and I encourage anyone interested in the industry to take a look at the series. Click here for the “Lela London” edition!
