Style Icon

I have to admit I joined the Emerson Fry movement a bit late in the game. And although I did spend quite a few months coveting many pieces in her collection, I only recently allowed myself the first splurge. Well that broke the seal if you will and I now own a small (although expensive) collection of my favorite shoes from her Spring collection. Prior to the recent sneak peak from her upcoming Fall line, I day dreamed a collection that included more, more, more! Im talking about handbags, jewelry, hats, more shoes. Basically anything and everything that I can get my hands on that will allow me to live a life styled by Emerson Fry. Never did I imagine she would also include a perfume as well! Ahhh, Im in heaven! Not only is this pretty lady my style icon for sure, she’s also a role model for pursuing your dreams.

Will leave it at this;

Emerson Fry – via the Bostonista:

“The first thing is to decide on the deepest level that the thing you love doing is worth doing, so much so that it is worthy of obsession. That’s the fire that starts the engine. After that, you must promise yourself to work extremely hard and do good work everyday, and that you will never give up, no matter what. Just say, “I will never give up, I will never give up, I will never give up,” like the little engine that could. When you decide this, everything you want is yours —it’s just a matter of working hard and pushing through the hard parts with a grin on your face. The grin comes from knowing you can do it because you decided you would.”
