Who Is SimplyStudded?

So I had a mid-life crises… If you can call it that… It was more of an epiphany! After years at a job I absolutely hated I decided to do what I loved… FASHION!!!  I come from a background in Psychology and Social Work yet I have always had a passion for Fashion. I went and applied to F.I.T with no formal background in Fashion besides working at local retail stores. And guess what? I was accepted!! So here I am now… Doing what I love… If the old saying is true “Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life”… Then I am officially retired!

In my retirement I took my friends with me. I hope you all enjoy the ride.

    Your blog is awesome but your “story” is even better. I am a technologist turned small business owner/landscaper and it has made a tremendous difference in my life. I applaud you for doing what you love and wish you oodles of success. You certainly will look fly doing it :).

    I need help keeping up because I SO can’t believe that I missed Missoni @ Target (sniff sniff), so you have a new subscriber.
