Sundress Savvy

Why my quarter life crisis, AKA hitting the big 2-5 is not making me swoon in the month of June. (Please save all grunts and moans about my over emphasis on 25.)

1. I no longer have my birthday planned out months prior. I remember a time when I put more preparation in my birthday dress then some brides do in a wedding gown. Sad? I think not, I would rather label myself as being very prepared for any possible outcome. The outcome of course is not having a “fugly” dress at my once a year celebration.
2. My only child syndrome now just looks like I’m being antisocial. There was a point in my life where hanging out with my dog and a box of skinny cow ice cream was just me unwinding and being an only child. I mean since every girl has been quoting Marilyn Monroe since age 12, let’s be real remember when she said, “when I’m alone I restore myself.” Or how about Hepburn saying, “I don’t want to be alone, I want to be left alone.” Pretty sure that describes me to a T.
3. Netflix seems more fun then nightclubs. Is it just me or does the sound of going out make anyone else actually tired sometimes? I would rather binge on Orange is the New Black season two. Sorry not sorry…
4. Getting your nails done is now a chore. Recently brought to my attention by one of my best babes, was the impeccable hearing of those nail artists-they are ALWAYS listening.

So fellow fashionistas and babes in a quarter life crisis hang on tight, but if something happens just blame it on your quarter life chaos. FYI some people who hit a midlife crisis are known to buy cars and go on shopping sprees. I may or may not be considering adding this to my to do list but until then check out this sundress from Aritzia that comes in multiple colors it is AMAZING!

TRIO

Hi I’m Rachel... Born and raised in New Jersey where I received my Master’s Degree in Communications, had my first job experiences, and realized my purpose in life was to help make a difference. In 2013, I moved to New York City where I had dreams of being in the fashion industry. I took a fashion PR workshop and reached out to a speaker I was inspired by for an internship. Elle Communications helped me discover my love for social good brands and fashion with purpose. For a year I was one of Diane von Furstenberg’s assistants which was an experience I will be forever grateful for. Working for a fashion legend I never learned so much in such a short period of time. It helped me grow both professionally and personally immensely. I lost my aunt to lung cancer six years ago and became involved with Free to Breathe a nonprofit organization with a mission to double lung cancer survival by 2022.  They wrote me the most beautiful letter about my involvement since 2011. I am now currently fundraising for this year’s walk and team captain to Deb’s Dreamers.  I have raised over $5000.00 for lung cancer research from 2011-2016. Another organization I feel strongly about is The Pajama Program. A non-profit that offers at-risk children books and pajamas so they can enjoy bedtime. I have been a volunteer reader giving me the opportunity to both read and see the process of when the children receive pajamas and get to take a book home of their choice. The program is amazing and I look forward to participating in the upcoming Pajama Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Continuously trying to find a way I can put my love for social good, fashion, and communications together to make the most impact.
