(First Fashion Show, last spring)

In the fall of 2014 I decided to start my own blog.  I had bugs in my ears (not literally, come on now) about the things I love, that I do, and my passions with how to put them to use to influence those around me.  It’s a struggle to put down your thoughts into words that will relate to readers.  I was certain that for months the only person even reading my blog was my mom.  Until I asked her what she thought of my posts and she asked “what’s your website again?” Oh Lord, shoot me!  Little did I know, I was making an impact somewhere, with someone, in a niche that I was most certain I loved…not perfect in, but passionate about.

Shopping in a local boutique and posting instagram pics of my looks led me to Josephine.  I was asked to be in the Spring Fashion Show.  I was thrilled and nervous.  I’m not a model and I was certain I was the oldest person there.  I put on my highest heels and cat walked for days down my hallway, practicing!  My kids were not impressed but I was not going to let anyone down.  Let me tell you, it’s not about what you are, it’s what you want to be.  When you are excited, confident, and have the drive, you can truly do anything you put your mind to.

After the show led to my first shoot.  I was asked to shoot the “Wifey” tee.  I mean, go figure…I am a wifey after all.  Then I sat down with Josephine and after a wonderful conversation I was thrilled to join her team!  Styling, modeling, and just having an overall input for the well being of the store has been my role and one that I have truly embraced.  I was beyond thrilled to attend a show in Chicago recently with my amazing team, choosing fabulous pieces to bring to the store.  Styling looks, photo shoots, choosing pieces, impacting social media, assisting with the fashion shows- it’s a wonder I am still asked to model with my lip-biting smile and crappy hair (seriously, in 90% of the photos my hair is crappy).  But I know that I am doing something right.

So here we are, the anniversary of my first debut with Sofi Stella.  It’s bittersweet.  I don’t know how I got here, ok I do, but where did the time go?  This is my first anniversary of many years to come.  I treat the store like my own.  My job is to obtain the image and perfect it.  My job is to perfect the message and convey it.  My job is…amazing.  I am so blessed to be where I am at today.  As a wife, mother to 3, and full time sales rep, I have managed my time to be able to dedicate my visions to the store and also in my own personal blog.  Family comes first, then your work, then your hobbies.  If you do it right, you can manage your priorities, enjoy life, and create an image that you can be proud of.  How will people remember you?

Here’s a look at my journey over the last year with SS!

The Wifey Tee…the photo I did being a typical nerd and the one they loved!

The Mother’s Day ad I created- my all time favorite of me and my little sweet!

One of my favorite dresses!  Can’t wait to wear it again this spring!

That time I photo bombed Jo… (and she still lets me shoot!)

“Hey guys, let’s be in the parade!”  How hot was it that day??? image

Workin the show…not really. Walk, smile, change, repeat! ( Don’t trip, Dear Lord, don’t trip!)

That time I was on a billboard.

Yes, I wear extensions when I shoot…my hair didn’t grow 6 inches in two months people!

image

That time we were construction workers to announce the new addition!

image

Even when we don’t shoot for Sofi Stella…we’re wearing, eh hem, Sofi Stella!

This girl, Alexa, and I at VIP night in the new addition.

Ummmmmm, I just like this one.

That time in Chicago when we all bought the same coat!

Having my baby girl on this journey with me, has been such a blessing and she loves it!

When Jo can’t be at my fitting, I text her pics. Weird faces and sock shots, “You like this?”

I am super pumped for the Spring Fashion Show this weekend!  Get ready to run to the store at 10am Saturday morning to shop the new looks or have your computer fired up so you can shop online.
