I’m truly living a childhood dream of being a model, and the dream has come true at age 60. This definitely proves that age is nothing but a number and it also tells me to never give up on a dream even if it takes a lifetime to achieve it.
When I was asked to walk OC Fashion Week, I was so happy and excited. I wasn’t afraid at all. About a week later I went to one of my favorite stores, Grayse. I discovered Grayse at a charity event for the American Heart Association. I joined “Circle of Red” that day!
About a year later, I was shopping at the Grayse store in San Clemente and Sylvette, the very kind store manager mentioned to me about modeling for Grayse in their fashion show. I told Sylvette it was a life long dream. Well, she assured it would be fine, and it was! It was so much fun! I loved meeting all the other models and making new friends. After the fashion show we were able to go to the store and change clothes and walk the store with new designs and mingle with the beautiful clients of Grayse, again I met some amazing lovely ladies!!
So, if you haven’t been to Grayse, you are missing out and should totally check them out. Grayse is a unique boutique! The clothes are designed with great care and classic style in mind, but with a glamorous twist! Grayse is an absolute perfect place to shop if you are looking for classic pieces but with just a touch of edgy style! I love the feeling of wearing something different but classy. I believe that the way you dress, how you feel in the clothes you choose to wear define you. I believe clothing you choose help you feel a certain way in them them which can set the tone for the day or evening. Clothing can help you give a sense of confidence, pride and individuality.
Remember you are never too old! Never stop looking for a new adventure. Try something new every day, scare yourself, just a bit – trust me, it’s fun! Keep an “I did it journal” at the end of the year, go through it, I promise it will bring a smile to your face☺️
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“You will enrich your life immeasurably if you approach it with a sense of wonder and discovery, and always challenge yourself to try new things.” –Nate Berkus
This could not be more true! Even the tiniest things are full of wonderment!
“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?” –Vincent Van Gogh
And courage can come to you at any moment, be ready!
“The way I see it, every year can be a brand new journey. Think about it: You get one chance to be 25, 38, 44, 61 and every age before and between. Why wouldn’t you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?” – Oprah Winfrey
If we could all think like Oprah, in our own way!
