The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking. Something they don’t teach you in business class. This adage from India came from my partner in crime, and I will continue to keep the words in heart. With the growth of success, comes an onslaught of negativity. And no, I’m not talking about constructive criticism that helps you grow. I’m talking about the truly nasty, nonfactual, and unprofessional based nagging and manipulation of situations with seemingly no purpose or cause. You’ve probably worked with a few such people in your life, and if you continue to grow in a path of success, you can probably expect a lot more. While the spirit’s first reaction may be to reflect the attitude, the best advise I’ve received: The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking. The fact of the matter is, you’ll never be able to train the dogs. Instead, an elephant walks steadily through the streets, seemingly unaffected by the barking around them. Focus on your goals and how to achieve them. The rest around you, is just noise fading away. photography:KUNDAN …

First of all, don’t mind the same J Brand jeans two post in a row… told you they were a staple! (I did laundry I swear) Second of all, these photos were taken on 11/11, the month and day, not the time – however I am considering them to be lucky all the same. Lastly, I know it’s been a hot spell since my last post, travels have kept me away, but I’ll be sure to fill you in on the posts to come. For now let’s just say the past 10 days I have been in NYC, Wisconsin, Florida, and finally back home to Virginia. So the short of it – I’m going to bed immediately after this post is written, even though it’s currently 7:15PM. What it is (in my best gangster voice): The coat is called Ada by Marc New York, so immediately I thought it would be fabulous. The leather detailing on the sleeves sold me in a heartbeat. Sadly, it collects lint like CRAZY. Had this discussion with a couple …

one should recycle

Apparently blue is my hue of the season. So there is a story behind this leather top… It all started one dreary day, when I had nothing to do but stare blankly out of my windows… (Ok sorry I’ll get to the point) I was going through my closet, which is a huge task in and of itself, and is saved for days only when I have ample amounts of time. Often times when I do so, I discover pieces that had been shoved so far back, they were totally forgotten. Many of those – they were back there for a reason. (Goodwill, here we come) But a few pieces, it’s like shopping all over again in boutique Kristina. Well, this was a tuck-back-to-the-depths or donate item. But then, sometimes beautiful things can come from what might otherwise appear to be worthless. I got to looking at it (believe it or not, it was a jacket back then, a very, very ugly jacket). Out came the scissors, and a few snips later – I was …
