Farah and I shot this on a super snowy day a few Sundays ago; the falling snow added the perfect whimsical touch I was looking for. This cape coat seems very British to me and reminds me of Harry Potter (which I love because I am secretly the biggest HP nerd ever). It might also be because Farah and her husband Nabil convinced me to take a bunch of photos waving a wand around while in this cape LOL…okkkk let’s be honest I didn’t need much convincing.
On another note, as many of you know by now, I have been working hard on adding a shop to houseofwilla.com, which has been such an adventure and learning experience. I hope to have ShopWilla up and running within this next week (hoping to launch this coming Tuesday). It’s been a lot of work/slaving away but so exciting, and has shown me what I am capable of and what it’s like to really love what you do (you know that saying 'when you love your work it’s not really work'?).
I was watching the Ellen show the other day and Terry Crews was on and he said “If you don’t do what you’re supposed to do in your life, the world is gonna miss what you have.” This is a reminder that there is nothing better than being yourself, doing what you love and sharing your gifts with others. Sorry to get all inspirational and emotional on you guys but seriously it’s so true!
