I recognize that I have been a bit silent on my channels. Like everyone, I am unsure of what the future holds as we all watch this pandemic unfold together. My heart breaks for so many people that have had their lives affected – the sick, those who have lost someone, the vulnerable, those whose schedules and life events have been turned upside down, those who have lost their jobs, the list goes on and on.
I have been sharing my love of fashion and style on the internet for nearly ten years now, and I hope I’m able to share for many more years to come. Everything I do here at Atlantic-Pacific goes through the lens of fashion and style. I’m proud that I have never had to waver from that strategy, but in this moment, I feel uneasy. I am questioning what place fashion keeps in society as we are facing a global heath crisis of unimaginable magnitude. I feel scared and lost and anxious and confused. I know what I do is nowhere near important right now, but it still remains my greatest passion, and that is very conflicting. While I want to continue to share I am still navigating what makes sense during a time that is a first for all of us.
Thank you to so many of you who have supported Atlantic-Pacific over the past ten years. Thank you for helping to build an amazing community centered around the joy and fun of getting dressed every day. I love hearing from all of you and hope to stay connected. I am doing my best to take everything day by day just like all of you. In the meantime, I hope that you are all staying safe and taking care of each other.
