Write what you know...

What is it about life that keeps us going?

Its interesting what sacrifices were willing to make. All of those olympic contestants, they competed again, and again, and again, they fail again, and again, and again, and they improve, fix, and achieve. Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, they practice, practice, practice, and continue to improve, fix, and achieve.

Pople who started with nothing...

Oprah Winfrey
Stephen King
J.K. Rowling
Shania Twain
John Paul DeJoria
Leonardo Del Vecchio
Steve Jobs
Jay-Z
Sean Combs

I could go on and on, but the point to this list of names is that if you really want something, then you are capable of achieving it... how badly do you want it?

My New York so far...

Exhausting, exciting, fun, frustrating... GREAT!

It's been an excellent experience, but exhausting. New York is HOT! Walking in the city you can just feel the heat from the streets. It's a different kind of hot compared to Texas all together.

Moving somewhere is hard. This move has felt harder then any other move I've done. This move has made me vulnerable, dependable, skeptical, frustrated, scared, and strong. I'm able to see a deeper side to myself... a different kind of strength. I know it's been about two weeks since I've written, but every time I would attempt... well I just didn't know what to say??? The reason I say this move has been the most difficult is because I didn't know anyone. Yes I had the acquaintances, but it's not the same. When I moved to college, I had family and I met people in class. When I moved back home, I had my mom and dad. When I moved here, I didn't have anyone... except for my heavenly father, and that has been my strength. Now I know that when you move somewhere, everyone goes through this phase. When you first move somewhere it's gonna take some time before your able to make a connection with someone. Right when your in that moment of despair, thats when something wonderful can happen. Life is a beautiful place to be in, you just have to stop and see the beauty in it.

Apart from my emotional experience, the intern position has been exactly what I needed. It's opened my eyes to what I needed to see and has only confirmed my passion for this career. I can't believe it's been two weeks in. People here work to live. It is a fast pace life and I love it. There is also an endless list of things to do. Everyone spends there time outside. I got off the train yesterday at 8 and you would have thought there was a party going on, but no there was no party. I told a friend, I liked it up here cause everyone gathers and socializes outside. Texas doesn't do that, but thats because it wasn't built that way.

My conclusion: one thing I have learned from this, don't tell me I won't or can't do something cause i'll prove you wrong.

Welcome Back lizsewnyc.

Update:

Originally I started this blog to show you what living in New York was like. Five years later I'm living in Florida, and A LOT has changed. How much has changed:

Here's a peek:

-I decided to move back to Texas cause I was homesick, I had accomplished what I set out to do, and I wasn't finding a full time design job.
-I had several different jobs trying to make ends meet.
-I started a pillow business, but quit.
-Put a halt on all things fashion, because I needed a restart.
-Most exciting part, fell madly in love and got married.
-Moved across country, something I said I would never do again.
-I was 27 in 2012 and now I'm 32.

For the past 5 years, I have also been trying to figure out what it is creatively that I like to do... and I'm still trying to figure it out. What I can tell you:

I love...
-Fashion
-Structure
-Drawing
-Design
-Interior design
-Art
-History
-Movies

*LOL I don't think any of that has changed.

In the midst of rediscovering myself I've also been focusin…

Burberry

I love simplicity. 
For me simplicity says less is more. Which is why I enjoy how the English and Italians dress, or the elegant renderings of Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Balenciaga. 
Since I work at Burberry, I feel that it is more then appropriate to make this next chapter about the place that I work at... Burberry. 
Let me give you a background check...
-Thomas Burberry established his business in 1856. -He focused on outerwear in the beginning.  -He invented the weave Gabardine, which is what a majority of our trench coats are made of.
-Gabardine was patented in 1888.
Burberry
There's even a fabulous short film they've created to demonstrate what Burberry has done:

Of course what makes me love Burberry the most, is that ICONIC trench coat. 

When you put on our trench coat, you can feel the difference. 
-You feel like a million bucks. -Everyone looks good in a trench coat.  -You can wear it for any occasion. 
I can't tell you how I know about the Burberry trench coat, it&…

Fashion Fridays: Funny Face

Funny Face & Givenchy


For those of you who are not familiar with the movie Funny Face, it is about: An impromptu fashion shoot at a book store that brings about a new fashion model discovery in the shop clerk. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050419/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Of course my favorite thing about this movie are the clothes. *girl daydreaming. I actually created a Bridal collection based off of the dress pictured above. It was my inspiration. 



These costumes in Funny Face had grace, structure, design, and elegance. What makes these clothes so stunning is that Hubert de Givenchy was the costume designer. 
Now when people think of Givenchy, they just think of the name, not the man behind the name. Myself personally, I think of two types of Givenchy: the original and what they are today; grunge fashion. 
This is how you pronounce Givenchy:  jhee-von-shee
Givenchy started his company in 1952, but prior to his start he was already in contact with major Fashion icons. He was recommended by Chris…
