I Love U To The Moon And Back.

Does anyone remember that white Thierry Mugler’s dress that Stacy Dash’s character “Valerie” wore on Single’s Ladies to brunch at Malcolm’s? It was love at 1st sight for me and ever since then, I have been trying to find this beautiful dress. Well, unfortunately it’s vintage and a one of a kind piece so the chances of me finding it is pretty slim to none…In the last few months I have been playing with different fabric textures and trying to figure out how to re-create a sturdy yet flexible décolletage. I didn’t want the beautiful bust area to flop over and I’ve finally figured it out… I also wore this dress to brunch a few weeks ago and received so many requests to sell it that I’ve decided to add it to the shop as a Made to Order piece; and hope that like me, your search for that one of a kind perfect dress has came to an end. :) xx, KTR

Chasin’ Dreams.

To the ones who still believe in dreams,

Chase them.

Chase them until you’re out of breath.

Then, Keep Running.”

9.4.15. || They always say if your dreams doesn’t scare you, then they’re not big enough. Well, I guess my dreams are humongous because right now, I’m kind of terrified.

After 16 years+ years working in the corporate world and the last 8 at an amazing law firm, I’ve decided to take the leap of faith to chase after what I truly love…making clothes and being my own boss. It feels great to write those words, but it’s also terrifying and exhilarating and scary and exciting and surreal and unbelievable and, in so many ways, indescribable.

For the past 3+ years, I have been working nonstop. A full time career from 9-6pm followed by a full time passion from 7-3am. Having to live off caffeine, I barely slept, and when I did, I would crashed for days. My patience was short-er and my mind was on overdrive; trying to make sure I do my (day) job well, which was my priority, and then going home at night to run a small yet busy business. I’m pretty good with juggling multiple things while maintaining a calm attitude, but at some point even superwoman needs time out to rest and recharge. Even though I was living comfortably with a nice salary in a well respected position at a wonderful company and for a great boss, over time, I realized I was not pursuing my passion, nor was I growing as an individual or contributing beyond myself in a meaningful way…for myself.

What is truly important in life anyway? Work and pay bills until we die, or discover what makes us feel alive and go after it?

I think as long as our passion can provide us with a comfortable living, waking up each morning to fall in love with what we do is pretty darn worth the risk. It’s scary as hell, but life begins when we step outside our comfort zone, or so they say…It’s now or never right? I just hope I don’t end up on the couch eating cheetos all day! :)

Thank you for reading and thank you so much for your support over the years!! xx, KTR

Snapped a few photos before heading out for a casual dinner and drinks this weekend. I always started out my photo shoot thinking I am a model lol (trying hard to be serious with my so-called “fierce” look :P), but it’s hard to keep straight face when your hubbytographer is always full of corny jokes. The truth is, “sometimes you don’t have to try too hard, just let your smile speak for itself,” he said. I love it. Thanks for always inspiring me, everyday. I hope you find inspiration everyday! xx
