Call me bias, but I think this girl is STUNNING. OK, it is true, she is my daughter. She has been with me in this business from the very beginning. What she didn't realize is by becoming inspiration and a face behind my design business, it gave her confidence she needs in every day life. This child is fearless!
Today, besides being a model, she spends her days flipping and tumbling for Synergy Athletics in Seymour. Off the mats she is die hard studying. It is her dream to become a pediatric surgeon someday and at a young age of 10, she knows what it takes to get there.
Savannah Rose is also a big supporter of mine. She wants to know about every consultation, about every order. She's also one of my biggest critics. When she is running around the studio, I find myself glancing over at her for a thumbs up or thumbs down.
The designer in me has to mention what a fabulous model she really is. She is ready to be serious, and to bring some attitude! During a tea party photo shoot, I had a no call/no show model. Savannah Rose just happened to be tagging along with me on the shoot. Her hair was a mess! Within moments we made a quick decision to use Savannah Rose as a fill-in and it ended up being the best session she had had.
We are just two weeks away from "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports" where thousands of people attend Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky to try their luck on a single horse race. But the Kentucky Derby isn't an all day event just because of a two minute race, the fun is in the festivities, the social atmosphere, and the FASHION!
Do you know the story behind the over-the-top hats, fascinators and outfits that Oaks and Derby-goers wear as a staple for this huge event? "Part southern tradition, part spectacle", here is an article about the history of the hats:
"The event quickly became just as much about the fashion as the racing. Going to a horse racing event became an opportunity to show off the latest in spring fashion and women were known to coordinate their hats, dresses, bags, shoes, and even parasols."
Lucky for you, we have some fascinators in stock in a variety of colors for the big day! In addition, we can custom make one to your specifications! Each one is just $24 and is sure to put a little spring in your step! Click HERE now to purchase your fascinator for this year's Kentucky Derby on May 7

Meet Raven. I met Raven back in 2012. She was a little girl on a U10 Soccer team that I somehow was convinced to coach. She was a fearless girl with definite attitude. She quickly became friends with my son, Memphis who was on the soccer team with her. Through the years, her friendship with Memphis, and my other children grew. Lets just say they have shared in getting into trouble together.
Today, Raven doesn't have the attitude she once had, but she is definitely fearless. She overcomes daily challenges that most teenage girls face with dignity. Raven is turning into a stunning young woman. I am proud to know this girl, and even more proud to have her as one of the faces of Infinite Possibilities.
Inspiration can come from everywhere. Sometimes it is a person in your everyday life, sometimes it is someone famous. Some of us are inspired by scenery whether God made, or man-made.
The question has been asked to me many times. Honestly, I really don't know how to answer. Yes, I am inspired by famous designers. But I don't want to "be them". While the idea of being well-known may appeal to some, I like living in my old world here in the small town of Seymour. However, to DRESS someone famous? Now that would be something fun!! But maybe that is just that pride inside of me dreaming of being recognized.
Now as much as I LOVE the outdoors, I don't think I have ever truly been inspired by nature. On the other hand, some man-made things have inspired me. One thing that I have been dreaming about is designing a collection based on Main Street U.S.A, at Disney World. Not the costumes that walk the streets, but the houses, and shops are gorgeous! There is just something in there that says it could be a great collection. Sounds like I should really start planning that next trip.
Of course its hard not to take inspiration from my children. Mostly their personalities. I have some that are as messy as messy could be. Some that are classy and try to be so sophisticated. Some rockers, some sporty, and even one clown-style crazy. When you are surrounded by someone as much as I am with all ten of my children, it is hard for them not to inspire you.
That all being said, I know that most of my inspiration comes from my grandma. She was the seamstress. She never physically "taught" me how to sew, but she sure did inspire me. I knew she was brilliant at it. Honestly, she was not just brilliant with the sewing machine, but she was just brilliant at life. Her cooking, the way she kept house, even the way she dealt with every day people. I think of her with each creation I make. And yes, there is some crazy in me too, because sometimes I even talk to her while I sew.
Whatever it is that inspires you. Embrace it. Inspiration makes the world a prettier place.
