Mrs. Emily – Ins’t She Gorgeous

This is Emily, she is not only gorgeous inside & out she is insaley talneted, kind hearted, genuine & oh so smart! I absolutely adore her & everything she creates, says & does!

Emily & I met on Instagram. She has been a light in my world ๐ŸŒŽ ever since. Whether she is commenting on my posts, or sending me a message filled with posstive feedback & kind words; she is always making me feel good! Not a lot of people in this word give a shit about others or really anything.

That’s not Emily, she actually cares about the people around her in person & online. That’s what make Emily gorgeous in my eyes. Obviously, she is a beautiful woman anyone can see that; I mean just look at her legs for days too that girl!! 

What makes her so beautiful to me is the way she carries herself. The kindness that exudes from her. Her sense of humor & her loving & caring personality. Emily is open & honest that made it so easy to connect with her on many levels. 
Emily, is a designer. She creates the cutest caps ever! They are sassy & fun please check out her Work  you’ll love it too! Here a few of my favorites ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Emily recently shared with me that not only does she create those fun & sassy caps, she also sews clothes too! 

She shared with me a look into her past. She once was in NYC working for Amsale sewing collections tailored to fit each customer & was interviewed for Project Runway…she is officially one of the coolest people I know!! 

Pictured below is a few of her original designs she made by her, for her! 

After spending several years in the New York City fashion industry, Emily discovered that her true passion was to make fashion fun and accessible. She relocated to Champaign, Illinois and has been creating fun caps since. 

Here is an excerpt from her blog take a look ๐Ÿ‘€ I could read Mrs. Emily all day ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโค๏ธ

“I was unemployed for 9 months. First I cooked and took long walks and sketched and sewed. Then I applied, and waited, and applied some more. Then I got desperate, and hopeless and frustrated – my disappointment became overwhelming and I began shutting down.
I went to an industry round table (a group of young fashion-professionals wanting to better the industry). The leader of the discussion posed the question: ‘how does fashion improve the world?’ And something way down in me leapt up and started slow-clapping. By the time I left the meeting, that slow clap had turned into an all out standing ovation. In my heart. I was caught up in thoughts of something bigger than just my role in the fashion industry – โšก๏ธI was thinking about bettering people’s lives through fashion and was sure it could be done.โšก๏ธ I had no idea the ‘how’ but that day and the week’s moving forward, I became convinced of the ‘why’ of my mission.

I wanted to better the world through fashion and was convinced that if I set out, the ‘how’ would become clear. And then I got a call from my old employer. They wanted me to come work for them, in a new position, the assistant to the CCO and CEO โ€“ the husband and wife team that had built the company. And it was part time. All of a sudden, I had โ˜๐Ÿปthe financial support โœŒ๐Ÿป๏ธthe time and ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป access to the brains behind a successful fashion company. It was the perfect opportunity [to start]

Underneath the layers of heartache I’ve been rummaging through the past couple of weeks, I’ve found perspective. Who knew I’d have to dig through all my failures and relive all that overwhelming emotion to remember why I ever set out on my own several years ago ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป after setbacks and disappointments trying to find my dream job in the fashion industry, there was an encourager in my life who asked if fashion could improve the world. And I KNEW it could. So I set sail on unknown seas ๐ŸŒŠ thinking if I just got going my little heart would lead me in the right direction.๐Ÿ”› Now that I remember what I was initially trying to do, itโ€™s clear I STILL have no idea how to do it. But now, Iโ€™m even more convinced itโ€™s possible and necessary. Life is hard. Iโ€™ve been chased out of NYC, Iโ€™ve had the wind knocked out of me by mothering, Iโ€™ve screwed up precious relationships with people I care about. My jobs are getting bigger and more important, and I keep ending up in the corner reminding myself to slow-breathe, too intimidated to try. In all this I realize, that fashion can be used to empower. Fashion can be used as any other tool, to make those big jobs easier.

The past 2 years since returning from NYC, I’ve been able to untie my worth to what I’ve done…and connect it to who I am. I’m intrinsically awesome. And not because of WHAT I’ve done, but WHO I am. I felt like a failure for so long because my path didn’t look like ‘it should have’ or like I expected it to. I’m finally able to see that good things are ahead.”

โ˜๐ŸผThat right there my fiends is why Emily is gorgeous, why I adore her, why I think she is brilliant & utterly beautiful ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโœจโค๏ธ

Shine on Mrs. Emily
