New Discoveries

You never know what you can find unless you open your eyes. On my lunch break on Friday, I decided to go for a walk to get some air. Being from Jersey, I know very little about the Philadelphia area and what it really has to offer. On my journey I see this amazing, modern community with apartments, boutiques, restaurants, pet shops and so much more. There is a bowling alley and lots of parks with great art. Northern Liberties is what it's called. I had no clue about this part of town. What community do you know that has a jumbotron in the town square? All the ESPN you could imagine. Any sports lover's dream.

MJ Inspires

Woke up on the right side of the bed this morning. Waking up a1 5a.m. is not an easy task. But thanks to Michael Jackson, he helped me start the day off just right. Butterflies, one of my favorite songs. Well back to work!

Sammy Davis Vintage

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Lancaster, Pa.? Fashion, bright lights, taxi’s cabs? Probably not. This didn't stop Sammy Davis from dreaming big, nor did it stop her unique sense of fashion.

“What do you do when there’s nothing to do? It’s not a lot of events and it was around the time when I got my license. For me, it was like; let’s go to the Salvation Army and thrift shop,” says Davis. Davis became involved in planning her outfits for school. Like most fashionistas, Davis wished she had Cher's [from Clueless], clothing program. “I would write down all of my outfits and keep track of it. I wouldn’t wear the same accessories within two weeks of each other.” She was voted most unique dresser in high school. “It was an art form,” says Davis.

Davis also had a passion for writing. “I am going to be the future editor for The New York Times,” said Davis. At 16, she became involved in journalism through her high school and local news paper. This inspired her to major in journalism at Temple University. “I went into magazine writing with the thought of becoming a fashion editor for a magazine”

Davis landed her first job with Hearst Digital Media. “It was an amazing start in New York City,” said Davis. For Davis, the passion was not there. She realized she was not driving the passion she had for fashion.

She now has a fashion blog, web show, an online shop, and so much more. Davis has a TV show on, an Aol website. She is starting to do more on air appearances. “I want to be an expert in fashion and have web series on fashion,” said Davis.

Davis is focusing more of her attention on her newest project. Road Hug, a web series, that brings light to emerging artist, designers, and food in cities that have been a well kept secret, until now. “I say emerging only because they’re emerging to the television audience.” Davis, along with business partners Darla and Julia, will be visiting different cities such as Athens, Ga., Salt Lake City, Boise, Idaho, and Denver Colo. to name a few. “Fashion, food, and music represent the three pillars of any country or society,” said Davis. In September, they will release three 22 minute pilot episodes. The ultimate goal is to pitch the show to different television networks, said Davis. “We will pitch the show to networks such as Oxygen, Bravo, We, Travel Channel, and Food Network. We are giving America the hug it deserves.”

She is not a fashion designer, but she does understand what works on women. “I want to be that positive influence in fashion. I dream of having an eco fashion friendly store. ” She wants to help women understand that they can have alternatives like vintage and organic cotton.

Buying vintage is another way of going green. “You’re helping the environment by purchasing these pieces,” says Davis. She is going traveling the east coast looking for vintage pieces. Davis's showroom will be stocked with the best vintage fashion has to offer.

“When you recognize what’s making you happy and what’s not making you happy, then you can continue on the most fulfilling path so that you can achieve your dreams,” says Davis. You must continue to connect with people who share the similar passion. The key is being yourself and being authentic, says Davis. Although, you may think a plan is already set out for you, “set your own path.”

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

I saw this vest in Oma Vintage in Philadelphia, and absolutely fell in love with it. I walked by the store everyday after work debating whether or not to make the purchase. What can I say, times are rough these days. two Fortunately for me, the entire store was 50% off!! AMAZING!!! So the once $40 vest, is now $20 and in my closet! Can't wait to wear it.

This little satchel caught my eye on the way out. I couldn't beat the $7 price tag.

If you are in the Philadelphia area, I would definitely recommend this vintage boutique. Look at my previous post to see the location.
