Style By StormieJ : STYLE DIARIES - Inspired by The Carrie Diaries

"The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel." ~ Piet Mondrian

Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! As many of you know, I have been sick for the past week fighting a nasty cold. I kept a low profile for most of the week. I barely left my bed this past weekend because I felt so bad. No worries, I feel a lot better now. During my "bed quarantine" I binged watched a lot of TV shows including The Carrie Diaries. It is no longer a continued series :( but it was a prequel to Sex and the City.

I love love love both shows! The Carrie Diaries is one of my fave shows on Netflix. One of the many reasons why I love the show is because of Carrie's style! I am in total swoon over the color palettes, the play on prints and textures, the chic accessories - pretty much everything I live for when it comes to style! #FASHIONADDICT lol

After watching both seasons, I felt so inspired to create some looks of my own, in real life and online. (No worries, the looks I created from my wardrobe you will see on the blog :) ) I went to work creating different style sets based on different patterns and colors.

Don't get me wrong when I say this, but creating these looks were the most fun to make out of all of the style sets that I've made thus far. I think the reason why I had the most fun is because there were no restrictions or guide lines. I am usually creating looks for this or that event or occasion. It was liberating just to create for the sake of creating.

I was thinking... what if I created lookbooks based on the different characters from Sex and the City? I think that would be a lot of fun! Leave your thoughts below!

As  always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

3 Pros and Cons Being a Freelancer

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." ~ Jim Morrison ***Stock Image by Wonderlass***
Are you or have you ever thought about being a freelancer? The entire concept for most means freedom to do what you want. Setting your hours. Getting to sleep in. Working when you feel like it. While some of those are true, I think people get a false perception for what it's really like to be a freelancer. I freelance dance and write so I want to share some pro's and con's. These statements are my own opinions so I suggest taking it with a grain of salt.
Pros 1. You are ultimately your own boss. You can dictate what hours you work and how long you work for the most part. Being your own boss means independence and not having to answer to someone else. 
2. You can work as little or as much as you want. Since you are your own boss, you can determine how many projects you take on at a time. Usua…
