The Stone File: 08/25/14


pastel persuasion

Well, the day has finally come when I create the first of many blog posts! I am overwhelmed with the love and support I have received already as I begin this new, exciting and long overdue venture. The Stone File holds a very special place in my heart -- in many ways, it is my heart -- and will continue to evolve and grow with me with the assistance of an incredibly talented photographer and dear friend, Tara Ashton. You can expect weekly posts documenting carefully crafted looks by yours truly filled with my personal style which, over the years, has culminated to an eclectic mix of southern charm, european elegance and modern simplicity.

I find myself consistently inspired by innovation and reinvention, the idea that one person can encompass a myriad of looks, changing each day to suit a mood or a feeling. For me, fashion isn't about precise adherence to the latest trends, rather, it's about embracing an inner excitement about a cultivated aesthetic, intertwining that with the latest and greatest to dream up something uniquely your own.

Welcome to my little world, I hope you find it beautiful, entertaining and, most importantly, inspiring! 

So much love,
