The Beginning

I grew up in a family who put very little emphasis on clothing or appearance. My parents taught me to be more concerned with character than appearance (which is absolutely right, by the way). There is nothing wrong however, with keeping up with the maintenance that goes along with living in this tent of ours.
Ironically, after college I went into the beauty industry- becoming a hairstylist. Now I am feeling a need to expand my styling skills by making my way into the world of fashion. I love doing hair- (obviously the most important accessory) and I am going to love designing clothing that people will feel fabulous in...and more importantly, that will support a really awesome cause.
I am so excited to combine the passions I have developed with the principles that my parents taught me growing up. So here's to a wonderful journey. I am looking forward to great things, anticipating a lot of learning and expecting lots of surprises. I'm excited to be sharing this journey with you- perhaps it will inspire you a little.

"For The Times They Are A-Changin'"

Some of you loyal readers may have noticed that we have made some changes to the blog and we hope that you love them as much as we do! The image, isn't the only thing that is changing though and we wanted to give you a little update on what we have been pondering the past few months during our blogging silence.
When we started this blog we knew we wanted it to be fun and both saw it as a learning experience and stepping stone to "SOMETHING", we just didn't know what. As we blogged together and had many conversations about where our hearts were and what really drove us as people and we discovered a lot about ourselves. All of this pondering led us to take a break from the blog to regroup and refocus, finding direction together and individually. 

We have decided to redirect this blog to follow a fabulous journey that Stephanie is 
currently on as she follows her passion of designing clothes. Abbey has started a blog of her own that chronicles the stylish life of mommy-hood in the city which you should check out here, and will continue to do guest blogs on topics such as "Growing Out Your Hair", sassy wear for new moms and her favorite WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? pieces. 

Now don't fret, we will still have fabulous posts with our honest opinions on the current trends. And of course welcome your suggestions as to what to review or style. Only there will be more about the clothing industry, fashion projections <can we get a Hurrah! for that one> and an inside peek at what drives a designer. 
We hope you will continue to follow us as we follow our hearts.
