3 Darlings 

I was scrolling through some old photos and stumbled across some real winners. It made me think about how lucky I am to work with so many incredible brands, and small companies… SO I decided to dedicate a post to just that… my favorite shops. 

First of all I’d like to start this post with the most consistent brand featured on my profile… MAC Designs. The kickass female behind Mac is Marci, not only is she a total babe, but she absolutely blows me away by cranking out masterpiece after masterpiece. I’ve been wearing her jewelry pretty much exclusively for the past 2 (ish) years, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. People always ask me how I can stand putting so much jewelry on & taking off it off every day… it’s easy, I literally NEVER take my jewelry off…

Secondly we have Dazey LA. Dazey is run by the beautiful Dani who is an all around lady boss. Not only does she design her tees, but she models, and photographs them as well. An absolute inspiration to say the least. What I love most about Dazey is the empowering message Dani passes through her tees (and patches) to the ladies who choose to wear them. To top it all off, all her tees are affordable, super soft and perfectly versatile.  

Next up we have Solstice. A brand that has slowly but surely won over my heart. The beautiful creator, Nat,  is a hardworking cat (and human) mama, and you can just see the love in every one of her stitches. Every piece is so stunning and the detailing is absolutely incredible. Not only does she make beautiful body suits, but now dresses and bikinis too! The floral dress below is actually my favorite thing in my entire wardrobe at the moment. I wore it for 3 days straight when she first sent it to me… I’m generally terrified of commitment, but when it comes to Solstice, I’m in it for the long haul. 

That’s all for now! Unfortunately because of the size of these photos, my phone is seriously lagging, so I may have to do a follow up post on the near future! Hopefully you guys enjoyed this post, there will be many more to come. As always- please feel free to let me know what you’d like to see next!

    Hi Risa,
    Wonderfully brave thing to do a post about your anxiety and depression. I have been going through the same issues for a good few years now that got worse 5 years ago after a marriage breakdown. Just like you I have good and bad days, I do think the best thing to do is talk with people who understand and have the time to listen. It really does help so much to have them moments when you can have someone just listen without judgment. Also those moments where you can take yourself away from the world and be by yourself are just as important, taking yourself away to breathe and reset, is also a part of dealing with those little everyday battles. I want to thank you for empowering yourself and others by being strong enough to reach out and say that it’s ok to say I have anxiety and depression! That in itself is inspiring and made me want to say how much I appreciate people like yourself who are strong enough to tackle these issues head on.
