Looking Back | 2015 Photo Diary

Dear Future, I am ready.

As I look ahead, I welcome a new year filled with new artwork, challenges, loves, accomplishments, ambitions and great expectations. Thank you for your continued support and kind words... it means everything to me! I promise to bring exciting things to the table. 

It's been a strange and wonderful time, packed with a veritable rollercoaster of experiences, joys, hardships, and unexpected expressive journey's. I won't lie, the ride has been jarring. And the devastating impact of the massive flooding in my area currently affecting families, local businesses, homeless animals, and our community as a whole, doesn't exactly help matters. And since I'm kinda trapped here... no celebrations tonight.
There will be repeat episodes of 'You're the Worst'. Also, wine.  

However, on a brighter note...I've accomplished some incredible things this year that I never knew were possible and waded through moments seemingly impossible. There are certain aspects - relationships, people, thoughts - I have silently nurtured that now, for my own happiness, I must set free in order to move ahead and grow as an individual. I'm not even who I am, yet. 

Show me what ya got, 2016, because I'm excited, anxious, and hopeful... I'm ready for new chapters in this thing called life.

Here's to loving ourselves better. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
Love, Bella

One of many reasons I love Blue Onion Marketplace luxury boutique is the tremendous versatility each piece invokes when you least expect it. Sifting through the dynamics of experimentation and innovative design, alongside the webbing art of styling/accessorizing, it's comes down to the blueprint details. So, it's no surprise that when owner, Michele Syre, contacted me, I was thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate and reconstruct the Dulken & Derrick Flower Pins she'd sent over. The only obvious answer was yes, but with vertiginous elation, I assure you. After studying each piece and drawing from personal inspiration, Alex and I spent the afternoon immersed in our little craft vessel. Entranced. Moody. Entertained. Ultimately, the decision to integrate some of the ominously-evocative elements of designer Carol Christian Poell as well as Dior Homme S/S 02 Boys Don't Cry/RED Collection solved all those contemplative expr…
