I did an Interview with WFAA!!!!

November 6, 2016

Hey guys! I wanted to make another post. I was interviewed on WFAA with Shelly Slater! It was a really cool experience, I linked the video down below so that you can all watch it! I also wanted to take the time to thank the Adaptive Training Foundation, they have truly changed my life. David Vobora is the founder (to the right of me in the first group photo) and is an amazing person! He has changed the lives of so many people and is really a great person to know! They were featured in the interview showing me working out. 
I was becoming very discouraged with my walking before I met David and began attending the Adaptive Training Foundation. I attended a 9 week class to begin becoming more independent and getting more in shape, even afterward I have been working with an amazing personal trainer named Hunter that has continued these lessons even after the class!
I've met so many amazing people through the ATF! They have been so nice and welcoming, and have made a huge difference in how I perceive disability, including my own.
If you are ever in the Dallas area on a Friday, you should stop by and check it out. Fridays are when all of the Alumni come and work out all at once! Its an amazing thing to see!
I'm going to link their website below!

Outlander Inspired Red dress is Finally Done!

November 6, 2016

Hey guys! So I finally finished this dress! I love how it turned out, I know I told you guys that I was going to pick from one of the sketches that I drew before. I will put that sketch below so you can see the idea I had and then how the dress came to life. I decided on a simple look in the front and a elegant look in the back. I wanted to add the bow in the back to include a cute touch to the dress! The fabric is Duchess Satin in Roja Red, I purchased it from Mood Fabrics online.

I mentioned before that I was inspired by the famous red dress from Outlander along with a strapless red dress Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie Sabrina the "Sabrina Dress". The top of this dress is very similar to hers.

I showcased this dress and two others I made before at the 10 year anniversary for the shop I make my dresses at. Dallas Designing Dreams is a great place that has taught a lot of people to make their own creations and has helped people pursue careers in design. The owners; Carla and Arthur are fantastic people and helped me every step of the way. Without them I probably would have never found this passion for design, I will always be grateful to them!

I will be starting another project soon! I will keep you posted! I will also add a link to Dallas Designing Dreams so you can check them out!
