Red Valentino Fall ’15

Holy moly, time sure does fly! Sorry to leave you hanging, but things have been quite exciting around here in PJA land! I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say life is good.

OK, back to what you’re really here for: FASHION!

Red Valentino’s presentation for fall ’15 left me in a very nostalgic state. A little grunge meets girly action, tom-boy flannels with a frilly, floral flare! The bias cut silhouettes, flowing fabrics, and grungy edge have my inner 90’s child in a state of pure nirvana.

The bad news: I’m bedridden with something very similar to bronchitis. The good news: it gives me time to write on this little old blog!

This must be one of my favorite shoots to date featuring two terrific finds. I found this gorgeous silk dress and these Faryl Robin shoes for only a buck at Urbanity’s most recent charity event sale. Score, right? Love the way this dress moves. Can’t help but twirl in this beauty!

Remembering

Today is normally a pretty somber day for me. Three years ago, my mother passed. She was my best friend, my confidant, and the most loving person I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. It was a true honor to be her daughter.

Mom 19The Original PJA (Poor Jeannie Anne)

When I was much younger, I feared I was going to be like her. A silly thing, but now I emulate her in my daily life and would consider myself lucky to invoke her essence. Thank you, mom, for all the joy and love you brought to the world. You made my childhood truly enchanted and eased the pain of becoming an adult.

PJA-0540If I continue to chase my dreams, it is because of her. She is still the main source of my inspiration.

I love you, Mom.
