My client Foxy Vintage and I have a wonderful real-ationship. She has the prettiest vintage wears. Like no, really vintage, and they’re utterly gorgeous. And I… am lucky enough to have been hired to tell the world about them.
As her Fashion Description Writer, I’ve created many fashionably elevated stories designed to add emphasis to her already perky designs. And O heavens was it fun!
I talk about jumpers, skirts, and cardigans like these:
I had to find a way to blend my love for fashion as I’ve worked as a Visual Merchandiser at Forever21, and in Visual Merchandising for Abercrombie & Fitch as well. Fashion Styling was great, but my love, my ultimate love… is in Web Work and Writing. I gathered a few associates and we teamed up as Editors, and now we take clients that would like SEO rich fashion or product descriptions to enhance their websites. I have found the perfect balance.
In this post I have to give thanks to those few that have worked tirelessly to help me meet deadlines, and juggle personalized web packages—ones that all pass Copyscape. Yes, I’ve been swamped, but happily busy and loving every second of it. When I decline friends and family for lunch and dinner dates I happily quote Karl “People who do a job that claims to be creative have to be alone to recharge their batteries. You can’t live 24 hours a day in the spotlight and remain creative. For people like me, solitude is a victory.” Don’t worry, I still love you all, I’m just focused.
My clients are awesome, especially Foxy, and her items are unique, creative, and of a great quality. I know for a fact—I have some of her purses in my closet right now! If you like her store, find out more or follow along kiddies: @foxyvintage.

So yesssss, this post is “advertising,” but only for the best… you love me, get over it.
Happy Friday. New nonfiction to come.

“It is in his pleasures that a man really lives, it is from his leisure that he constructs the true fabric of self.”
The above title is a quote from Dinty Moore’s Craft book, as said by Charles Lamn and Sir Walter Scott in a contemplative essay by Agnes Repplier.
In the middle of acquiring two new Fashion Product description clients—thanks guys, I’m looking forward, I took a moment to breathe, and look at my pretty frikkin pup:
She’s adorbs. My absolute love.
O, and about the size of my cordless phone (but 2 lbs, 10 ounces) and full-grown.
She keeps thinking she’s a bulldozer when she barks, so I got her the perfect t-shirt today.
And then, if I didn’t jump out of my heartbeat enough looking at her cuteness—
she decided she didn’t wanna be photogenic for her Mom this afternoon.
Often, I think she’s even smarter than I am; just look at this face—studious.
Now if she can just get these edits done for me all will be well.
- Just made the right decision, it feels way wrong
- Bought ishloads of the most exotic fruits I could find
- Wrote fashion product descriptions for a client
- 3 out of 4 of the fruits I attempted were icki; story of my life
- Wondered if I was sane at all, panic… snailshitslowness
- Having high hopes is like putting all your apples in one basket
- Left tea-cup at home by accident, went up to get it, got back down to the car and found that my wallet wasn’t on me either
- Once I pulled off around the corner I realized I’d forgotten my sunglasses and iPod too
- O and I always put all my apples…ah
- Received some horrific edits back; I guess it’s all a learning process but like Erykah said “Keep in mind that I’m an artist, and I’m sensitive about my sh**”
- Excedrin is not interested in helping out this headache
- Listened to Ron Pope’s “Drop in the ocean” … especially when he says, “I don’t wanna waste the weekend, if you don’t love me, pretend”
- Happy holiday to everyone
