Here's To The Oddballs

At my first day back to work last week, we had a meeting sponsored by the brand Band of Outsiders.  I honestly didn't know much about the brand before the meeting but now, it's one of my favorite companies. Scott Sternberg prides himself in being a goofball and started the company with $300 in his pocket. He doesn't follow trends, just does what he loves and designs for people who are a little bit quirky and not traditionally high fashion. He does his photo shoots with polaroids and did a scavenger hunt for fashion week in New York instead of a runway show. He refers to himself and his staff as "outsiders" hence the name "Band of Outsiders".  I was so inspired by that meeting because everything just resonated with me.  I am a big goofball, and I don't always fit in. I work backwards and going the traditional route has never worked for me. I dream big and I honestly believe the impossible can happen. Case in point, I  got in touch with a big celebrity stylist this week and asked if I could send him some dresses for his client and he said yes! I used to feel really insecure about who I was but now I've embraced it. Chris always tells me that the world through my eyes must be pink and cartoon like, where monkeys talk and unicorns really exist. He often jokes that I crash landed on earth from another planet in a small pink spaceship with Gabbana my crazy turtle looking after me.

Steve Jobs said it best....

“Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

We just went to Taylor Swift's concert. Her stylist is one of our clients and he got us tickets to say thank you for everything. Our seats were awesome! I had a blast!  I've never heard this song before and now it's one of my favorites. haha It's fitting for this post I think.
