Recently, I had the pleasure to meet Joy Sewing, the Fashion and Beauty editor for the Houston Chronicle. She is one amazing woman and we spent the better part of two hours just discussing our views on fashion, style, and life. We discovered our mutual love of figure skating and my closet of shoes. We swapped fashion blogs that we follow and even discussed our own. Joy has a blog called Dress Like You Are in Love and I really love the message that she sends with it. As she states in her blog, "People dress better when they're in love". She asked me what this message meant to me and I had to think for a second...I don't necessarily think that I have to be in a relationship to be in love and to dress better, but I looked at it as being in love with yourself. Having the confidence to wear what you want and wearing that one piece of clothing, or that pair of shoes that makes you stand a little straighter and walk with a supermodel strut. How does this message resonate with you?

I had an amazing time getting to know Joy and learning about her journey from the midwest, to New York, then finally back to Houston to work at the Chronicle. I hope to have many more talks about our views on the fashion scene in Houston. Enjoy the pictures from our day!

Thanks MBP for the great pictures!
