I am a perfectionist. I either love or hate something. My husband always makes fun of how strong my taste for things are. When I hate some piece of clothing, fabric, etc. I will express my feelings with such disgust. Have you ever seen the movie Valentino the Last Emperor? My husband and I crack up watching it because I act so much like Valentino. So quick to know how I feel about something.
James actually says he envies this characteristic of me, why? Because it allows me to design and make decisions quickly. He is a web designer and so it takes him longer to design since he doesn’t have such strong opinions. He is very good, just takes him longer. I know what I like and I know what I don’t like. I don’t just take things for what they are but for what they could be. And when I don’t like something I am quick to change it. I want to make everything perfect for Taylor Morgan because after all a girl dreams about this dress since she is about 5 years old. A bride’s expectations are high, so I have raised the bar even higher.
Wondering why I am rambling about all this? It’s because I hate the lining I have chosen for my dresses and so I am changing it immediately. The photo shoot is just 4 1/2 weeks away but that doesn’t stop me from changing it.
Girls, I have put my heart and soul into this for you. At the end of the day I am a huge romantic. I believe in true love, I married mine. This dress isn’t just a piece of clothing, it stands for so much more. It’s what you choose to wear as you really start your life. No detail has gone left unseen. I have overseen everything down to the very last stitch. These dresses are for you, for the girl who still believes in love and wants to be the bride she always dreamed of, next to the man who makes her realize that prayers are heard and answered.
James took this photo, if you know me well you can see me thinking in it. And I know I was thinking about my lining. Excuse the extremely dirty hair, no make-up, little sleep look. Being a fashion designer isn’t as glamorous as you would think! But it is the greatest job ever.
