Fashion Is For Every Body: We Did It

Fashion Is For Every Body: We Did It

If you're reading this you probably know that I spend a lot of my time swimming upstream and contradicting stereotypes. I've been called fiesty, firey, bitchy, stubborn, ballsy, badass, leader and queen (among other things). Last week I got to add co-founder, co-producer and runway model for Nashville's first inclusive fashion show to the mix.

A Pilgrim's Progress

A Pilgrim's Progress

Not to be confused with the Christian allegory The Pilgrim's Progress. This is my journey, one that I'm thankful to have the opportunity to traverse. Big changes are coming for Spashionista. I value every single one of you that take the time to read and follow on social media. I'm thankful I don't have to go it alone.

Throwback To Paris Vintage Fashion Show

Throwback To Paris Vintage Fashion Show

It's no secret that my wardrobe is pretty much an everyday runway show for Pura Vida Vintage.  So it came as no surprise to find out that owner/curator Krystle Ramos' impeccable fashion sense is sought after by more than just yours truly. Last month  Ramos was contacted to be the featured designer for a show hosted by Tennessee State University. Called "Throwback to Paris", the runways highlighted  a collection of vintage dresses and outerwear inspired by Paris in the 1950's.
