"There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now." -James Baldwin

The Homecoming theme derived from James Baldwin signifies the precedence Howard has always set to overcome challenges, unlock opportunity and build towards a bright future. In truth and service, at Howard the time has always been, and always will be, now.

My Cup Runneth Ova, Honey!
PhotoGrid_1503820944058.png

Thank you! To my custom clients, my brides, apparel shoppers, my accessory girls, my Glowbox members. Every line I've designed, and brand I've created. Every website, logo, and invitation I've deisgned. Every closet, room, and space I've organized and layed out. Every floor I've merchandised, window I've dressed. Every photo shoot, catalog, and show I've styled. Every red carpet, cd cover, and campaign. Every magazine, newspaper I've written for or been featured in. From sales to management, Fifth Avenue to Kings Plaza, LA to DC to NY. It was all a dream come true! It was purposeful and intentional.

I am grateful to be able to use the treasure the Master placed within me. Every triumph and fail has been exercised for what's ahead of me. I have had many clients and have served them in different capacities and stages of my career. Each client, supporter, patron, post sharer, and cheerleader for Love Collins thank you, my cup runneth over, and over, and over.

"The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want" is one of my daily affirmations serving and satisfying a multitude of needs. At times it is praise and worship to God, or an encouraging reminder of who I belong to. As well as a fierce hope and confession of what my God is able to do!

God you are my Shepherd, my source, and my strength. You are the governor of my life, provider and my protector. I have no want, you satisfy and surpass my dreams and desires. I am grateful for all that has passed my way from your hand.

Loving this elephant! I'm drawing inspiration from it for #LGMH's bedroom and creative space. 

It's the perfect synergy of sweet innocence, boldness, and color. With Grey being her middle name (one of her middle names) its a theme that has appeared several times since she was born.

Let the DIY demo begin!

THE SKINNY BEHIND MY SWAY SUMMERSET LOOK
PhotoGrid_1469544339137.jpg

YOU KNOW THAT TALE OF THE HAIR DRESSER WHO NEVER DOES HER HAIR? I WOULD BE THE DESIGNER WHO NEVER WEARS HER OWN CLOTHES. I USUALLY RESERVED MY CUSTOM LOOKS FOR A SPECIAL OCCASSION. THIS NAVY AND GOLD TRIBAL PRINT IN SILK WAS ON RESERVE FOR A BRIDAL SHOWER I WOULD LATER ATTEND. THE THEME FOR THE ATTIRE CALLED FOR FABULOUS AFRICAN AND ETHNIC PRINTS. I THOUGHT, PERFECT!!

THE MORNING OF MY FAMILY'S ANNUAL 4TH OF JULY BBQ/ POOL PARTY. I WOKE UP WITH NOTHING EXCITING TO WEAR. EXCITING MEANING SOMETHING THAT FELT NEW, WEATHER APPROPRIATE AND FESTIVE ENOUGH FOR THE SERIOUS AMOUNT OF DANCING THAT WOULD COMMENCE. OH OUR FAMILY AFFAIRS ARE NO JOKE!

THIS WAS ACTUALLY THE THIRD FABRIC STYLE I TOYED WITH, I WOKE UP AT 6AM THAT SUNDAY KNOWING I NEEDED TO CREATE SOMETHING FLY AND FAB IN A POCKET OFTIME. I FELT FEMININE AND CAREFREE IN THE STRAPLESS ELASTIC BAND TOP. THE CUFF AT THE HEM OF THE SHORTS ADDS A TAILORED FEEL TO THE RELAXED FIT.

I RECEIVED SO MANY COMPLIMENTS THAT DAY, AND A HANDFUL OF ORDERS. I LATER ENDED UP WEARING IT AGAIN TO MY GIRLFRIENDS BRIDAL SHOWER. IT WAS SO WELL RECEIVED I KNEW I NEEDED TO ADD IT TO THE SITE.
