“Go with the flow, but in style.”
It’s my motto, in life and in travel, and creating a brand like BagLady Basics has made this seamlessly possible. It’s also the mentality I had when my friend Ayesha invited me to meet up with her in Prague.
She’d extended the invitation at the end of summer, as I was still in Berlin (on my “Little Shepherd Girl” shit), and I figured, why not. I’d been keen on visiting this superbly beautiful city for some time, and it was only a cheap bus ride away!
“Oh my God, I love your hair! It’s so cool, can I touch it?”
How many of you natural haired sistahs have gotten these comments while traveling? Or maybe I should ask if you’ve lost count of how many times you’ve heard this? And I’m guessing that by now, like me, you’re probably used to it, and know that it comes with the territory of world travel!
Since the beginning of time, and I’m referring to BagLady Basics time, my friends and fellow designers have been advising and encouraging me to be the face of my brand. They suggested that I model my own clothes, and share more of my life, and myself in order to form a better connection with my followers and clients.
Since the beginning of time, I’ve ignored most of their advice. Not because I didn’t agree with them or thought that their advice wasn’t valid, but just because I love being the “girl in the background”. I absolutely enjoy working behind the scenes.
