When I plan a trip, I tend to think about my outfits first. I love matching a look to the vibe of a city or a location we are going to. What colors should I include in my minimized wardrobe? How can I mix and match the garments to save room for new things I purchase? It is a complicated web that I love to weave… then unweave… and weave again.
Lingerie and I go way back. The first time I tried the decadent lace was at the age of two. Digging through my mom’s burlesque costumes from the 80’s sparked my love of fashion. She kept some of her favorites from her dance wardrobe, and those pieces became my dress-up go-tos.
Now at the age of 20, I am collaborating with a bespoke lingerie brand that is rooted in lingerie’s history, the current zeitgeist, and women’s confidence. I introduce Madalyn Joy Designs.
I hope you all had a safe, joyous, and loving Thanksgiving! One childhood holiday memory that always makes me smile is the family sitting around the table after dinner looking at the paper. We would make our plan of attack for Black Friday. Who would make the run for the televisions? Who would get the lawn furniture? Which refrigerator or washer and dryer would mom get this year? What stores had the latest boot style on sale? It was all so invigorating.
