I hope these blog entries on Monday mornings help kick start your week. One of the reasons we started JFashionista was I wanted something fun and motivational to do and look forward to on a Monday morning. I always get motivated when writing these articles and I hope you feel the same way reading them. Your mindset will determine how you view your day, and in most cases, your point of view will determine the outcome.
“You become what you believe,” I always say. We all suffer from some level of self-doubt. Positivity is productive, doubt is destructive. I started blogging so late in the game, but watching Ellen DeGeneres’ message on affirmation one day made me believe I could do it. Just keep swimming.
This morning I’m excited for many reasons: I get to show you two new, stunning designs by Putumayo which I absolutely love, I get to announce Putumayo as a Brand in our 2017 Fashion Show and (so exciting about this one) Sakurako and Hasegawa as Guests playing Alice and The Mad Hatter respectively.
Ah, the joy!
Up and coming model Sakurako will play Alice in our 2017 Fashion Show. It will be her first time in America. She looks forward to the best hamburgers in USA, Whataburger. I say she is coming to the right place
Sakurako is wearing a lace up pleated jumper skirt and I’m in a velvet frill bustier and skirt.
The heart and soul of Putumayo lies in the passion and skill of Brand Manager Katsuta and Chief Designer Shunsuke Hasegawa. They have inspired me for years.
I’m a big fan of Hasegawa’s artwork. I collect them. Although very shy in real life, he is a big fan of Alice in Wonderland. So fitting, he will play The Mad Hatter in the 2017 Fashion Show. I hope to see everyone there on April 7th!
