I’ve never been what you call a “girly girl”. As a young wild one, if I was in a dress I’d want to take it off & climb trees, pretend I was a Lost Boy in Neverland, wild and free. If you’d had asked me even a few years ago, I would have said “I’m not really a dressy person. But as I’ve been growing & doing a lot of self discovery, I’ve come to realize that what I was really hiding from was:
Wearing all the black and faux- leather, no dresses or skirts, very little color even though I love it....I was hiding from myself. My power. My reflection.
Embracing the feminine part of me has been an experience, not because I feel obligated to but because I didn’t want to hold myself back from the experience of wearing whatever I felt like wearing. That’s why I wanted to do this “Romantic” shoot with Lea. I wanted to step into that power of femininity & do away with the shadows. I’ll always love being a rocker chick, but some days, I’ll also be a Queen, no matter what I wear.
