People often ask me about confidence: how to obtain it, fake it, and why I seem to have an endless reserve. I won’t deny that I’m confident. I won’t deny that I often feel good about myself, that I'm proud of my accomplishments, and that I'm satisfied with the person I am. I do need to mention that it takes work, and doesn’t always come naturally.
MizDragonfly is a line of limited-edition vintage jewelry founded by Karine of Brooklyn. This eclectic collection is the intersection of old Hollywood glam and quirky street style. MizDragonfly has a number of stand out, statement pieces (my favorite kind.) The line caught my eye with their funky knuckle rings that have been red carpet favorites of celebrities such as Lauren Lee Smith, Natalie Brown, Cory Lee and Gabrielle Miller. MizDragonfly jewelry is sold in retailers all over the world and regularly featured in magazines such as FLARE, Dress to Kill, Tatalum, GlassBook, Factice, 1968 and Superior.
Sustainable fashion is such a marvel of the world. You can see it everywhere and not even know it. I think it was the highly revered civil rights activist, Rosa Parks who said, "Each person must live their life as a model for others." What would the world be like if everyone actively felt and thought this way? As American designer Anne Klein reminds us, "Clothes aren't going to change the world, but the women (and men) who wear them, will."
“She was a gypsy, as soon as you unravelled the many layers to her wild spirit she was on her next quest to discover her magic. She was relentless like that, the woman didn't need anybody but an open road, a pen and a couple of sunsets” -Nikki Rowe
