Closet Mouse is My Motivation

My passion has always been writing, notice I use been, indicating past tense. Lately, I have not been writing at all really. When I held a professional writing position the creative juices flowed. However, now that I my career path has ventured off course and I am not writing as I would like to, things have dried up so to speak…playing that metaphor out.

I miss being around creative journalistic ideas and peers. That cannot stop me from what I love to do though, writing. A year ago I was posting blogs daily. It was such a happy time for me. I need to, and WILL, get back to that.

Monday night I had the pleasure of attending a Beverly Hills birthday party with Elana, Managing Editor of Closet Mouse and the creator of Good Girl Gone Shopping. The party was in honor of Michael, the creative genius behind Closet Mouse. We had a fantastic time at the pad overlooking other 90210 homes!

This was my first time meeting the super-friendly Michael, who Elana openly praises for his talents, and being around the two really inspired me to start writing again. I joined Closet Mouse (need to update my profile ASAP!) and I look forward to sharing my stories in this marketplace of fashion. It’s a great outlet to get your stories out there and I am very excited to do so. I encourage all of you to get involved too, as many of you are talented members of the fashion world!

With that being said, I hope that you enjoy my upcoming posts, as I am excited to start writing them again.

Have a wonderful day!

I enjoyed the post at Closet Mouse about a vintage store named Wasteland LOL! I wish I lived nearby to peruse through all the goodies in there.
