Finding Style + Song Inspiration Through Therapeutic Outlets.
"I don’t like to put myself in a box when I’m thrown the 'what do you do' question. I’m an artist that wants to make an impact through a collection of channels. I love, I create, I build, I give, I take, I grow. As the world changes, so do the things I do. Though, regardless, I try to fully immerse myself with the intention of expanding. I tend to gravitate towards therapeutic outlets of expression, and I think that all contributes to who I am."
"Contributing to a community, or something bigger than myself makes such a significant impact on me. I believe that if you’re carrying a secret ingredient, or own a key to a peaceful place, sharing it makes it taste and feel even better. If I can change someone’s mindset for the better, put them in a state of joy, or encourage them to grow, I’ve done my job well. I want to inspire change, encourage people to ask better questions, and come together. The creative community in Atlanta is thriving graciously and I feel very fortunate to be able to contribute."
"My go to look recently is definitely cropped flair denim or just cropped pants in general. Block heel, or slingback sandals are flooding my closet as well."
"Alexis Foreman is my first go to [for style inspiration]. Her take on modern minimalism always has me drooling. Brittany Bathgate and Alyssa Coscarelli are always on the top of my list as well. There are a lot of people doing a lot of really great things in the fashion industry. I follow a good amount of people on social media that inspire me a lot. It’s really cool that a platform exists where you can check out other people’s closets to inspire your own take on things!"
Colors / Textures / Shapes / Sounds / Emotions of Style.
"For me, style inspiration comes from a number of things. It’s everywhere. Colors, textures, shapes, sounds, emotions. Being outside has offered me a lot of inspiration. It’s conveying those sights and feelings into style that becomes really fun. It’s weird, I people watch a lot, and how someone speaks or walks inspires me to translate something into a statement I can carry with me. Like if I see someone riding a bicycle with a big smile on their face I’ll think about how I can incorporate bright colors in an interpretation. Or if I’m listening to a song saturated with melancholy, I’ll curl up in a cozy sweater."
"I’d say my general inspiration hits me in a similar way. It’s everything around me, and how I interact with the environment I’m in. Words, places, sounds, energy. Watching those renderings come out on the other side, as something completely different is really fun and gratifying. Music wise, if there’s a message I want to convey vocally, I’ll write about it. If I’m struck with grief, or bliss, it tends to be the outlet of expression I utilize the most."
"I think it goes back to how emotions hit me, and then come out the other end as content creation. Listening to, or playing music, can put me in a state of mind that might push me to make a statement via style. It’s really cool to see how they coincide and manifest together."
"I’ve been listening to a lot of Little Dragon and Michael Jackson recently. Chastity Brown’s Silhouette Of Sirens record has a permanent spot on my table though. This woman can pluck you out of whatever headspace you’re in and place you down into a field of silk."
"My music is my dearest companion."
"My music is my dearest companion. Whatever I have pent up inside me, dispelling it through melodies and words is the greatest form of healing I could ask for. To take something, whether it be joy, fear, sadness, comfort, worry – and sew it together to make a piece of art I can share and use to bring people together is incredibly satisfying.
"The biggest thing I want to get across to my audience is that everyone is capable of making something beautiful and warm out of something bitter and cold. My listeners rarely realize that some of my most popular songs are from the darkest times in my life. All they hear is the end of the story, churned up and spit out in a nicely folded sweater to curl up in. That’s exactly what I want. To feel warm, safe and inspired."
