Why "Modern Gypsy" What about this title resonates with you?


The idea of how gypsies were members of a tribe who have this "wanderlust" lifestyle was truly fascinating to me. They traveled and made the whole world their home rather than staying in one permanent place. I feel like this vastly relates to the fashion industry because fashion is also not permanent. Styles come and go. It’s all about adapting.

As a style blogger, how has developing your own sense of style externally helped you discover who you are internally?


Trust, the most satisfying part of fashion to me is when you can successfully style yourself to embody who you are internally. Along my journey, I have come across many incredible pieces, from independent local brands to high-end brands, that I find fitting to who I am as a person. I believe that the internet is a massive power tool. It provided me with endless inspiration that I nitpick to finally come up with my own personal style that is me to the T.

How can we start spread the #committoyou conversation and help other women to start putting themselves first?

I think it is important to ask other women what their goals in life are and then asking them what all of their goals have in common. The common denominator is them. In order to accomplish their goals, they must have a solid foundation to build on. The woman you're becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, and material things. Choose her over everything.rust, the most satisfying part of fashion to me is when you can successfully style yourself to embody who you are internally. 

What is your #1 tip for girls who want to cultivate their own unique style but may be hesitant?

Being different is a gift. Think about this… You can be someone else’s inspiration. Fashion is odd at times, but that’s the beauty of it.
