I’m a true believer that when women support each other, incredible things happen. Some of you may know that my bestie, Jessika and I started our own mermaid line, Secretly A Mermaid almost a year ago and it has been a fun, nerve wracking, crazy, glitter filled kind of year ever since. There are a couple of times that we’ve wanted to give up as we’ve realized that start ups aren’t easy but there’s many times that we are filled with joy as we are blessed enough to be able to do what we like to do best: which is pretty much everything – from designing, modeling, sewing, bloggging, advertising our own stuff, creating, expressing ourselves and networking.

And it’s times like this when we get to partner with different brands like TWOOBS that we’re even more excited than ever that we get to work with rad brands who slays around the world! They are Australian based super cool, glittery shoes that you can pretty much wear everywhere and ships world wide. They’re super light weight and fun! They even come with these cool glittery bag that you can use as your own clutch. I don’t think I’ve ever been obsessed with any pair of shoes than these!

Also, did you know that around one in four startups is founded by a female? Which is weird when you think about the fact that one in two humans is a female. This is why TWOOBS pass some of their profits to other startups run by female entrepreneurs. Every time you buy a pair of TWOOBS, you are not only scoring a super rad pair of shoes, you’re also helping a female start their own business. So go on their website now and check these babies out! 😉

Sometimes you meet people who want to make art and then you meet people who have to do it because if they dont, they go crazy.

Which one are you? I would like to say that I belong on the latter half. Most of the time when I meet people who ask me what do I do on my free time,

I normally say “creating, shooting, modeling, sewing, designing” and they go “wait, isn’t that your job? what do you do on your free time?”

And literally that’s what I do on my free time. I go to different places with my friends and blog about our adventures and make outfits for them.

I’ve been working as a fashion designer for five years. My job isn’t as glamorous as what people see on TV. Since I’ve worked for companies that

sell to the mass market, a lot of times are designs have to be toned down and sellable; therefore, I needed a creative outlet. Everyday I sit in front of my

computer thinking about all the different outfits I can create, multiple places I can visit that I’ve never been in before. As few weeks ago, StreetMeetLA

announced that they will be hosting their fairy lights meet. Instantly, I was inspired to make a see through outfit made out of plastic with patches on them

on top of Secretly A Mermaid’s newest two piece set because I just imagined how creative it will look with the fairy lights. I was so happy on how it turned out.

On my next few blog posts, I am going to start sharing how I make my outfits step by step —> comment below if you like that idea. I cant wait to make another

outfit and be creative again.

XOXO,

Joy
