If you would have told me five years ago that today I would board a plane to head to my first New York Fashion Week to represent SmartWater, I would have called and got you serious mental health. The truth is it’s not everyday someone from small town Oklahoma gets an opportunity like this. A coach store opening at your mall 45 minutes away is practically fashion week where I’m from. I am so grateful and see things from a fresh, appreciative perspective because of my background and I’m very thankful for that!
I am filled with so much honor and gratefulness to be heading to NYFW as the NYFW SmartWater spokesperson (More on that later this week). It has been a tremendous labor of love to get to this point. There were many blog posts with only 4 views, many ignored emails and many a night full of tears trying to figure out what the hell HTML was. I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to every single person who has ever visited my blog, for you are truly the reason I get to live my dreams. I started this blog for one reason, it was never to get free clothes, become “Famous”, or become the best writer. It was simply because I saw a much needed niche in the world of blogging that needed to be filled so desperately and I had true passion for this idea and took the leap. I wanted to one day inspire gay youth and prove that if you put your heart into something you care about and work hard, you can make it happen. Regardless of where you came from and what your weaknesses are. Persistence and consistence are key. However you must first believe in yourself. As I embark on this milestone know that I am representing you, I am cheering for you and I know that together we will win. Thank you for this opportunity, as you are the reason I’m getting to live in this pinch myself moment! Now get ready for some sick outfit posts and fashion show recaps! LETS DO IT!!!
