THANKFUL

Socks here

Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite holidays… of course for obvious reasons like the yummy food and marking the start of a magical time of year! But it’s also because it’s a day where you get to take full advantage of all things you are f***ing thankful for in life. Today I’m celebrating all the things I’m thankful for; my health, my friends, my family & this year all of you!! I am so excited to spend this day with the people I love and wanted to take this morning to thank you all for being apart of this blogging journey with me! Vanilla Fringe wouldn’t be all that it is without you guys! Thanks everyone, y’all mean the world to me! Happy Thanksgiving and hope you’re spending it with all your loved ones Xxo

Now that I am back in Arizona, I have been trying  all the fun exciting places to eat that opened up while I was away. My friends would talk about some of these places and  The Original Chop Shop was one of their faves and one of the first places I tried… It quickly became one of my favorites places to  eat too. Fortunately, they have a few locations near ASU campus, Old Town Scottsdale and downtown Chandler.  All of the locations have their own special vibe and I love the vibe they all give off. The downtown Chandler location is my favorite because of the bar, a perfect place to grab a drink for happy hour :) If you’re ever in the Phoenix area, make sure to check out one of The Original Chop House’s locations Xx.

So lets chat about this tee. A few things; I’ve been wearing it non stop, I say the sentence [yes, I consider it a sentence] I can’t even at least 5 times a day, and the story behind the t-shirt line is pretty rad. Sorry for the story time, but it’s a good one :)

This summer in Chicago my cousin Shae [original VF] introduced me to one of her good friends and also business partner for Fashion’s Fight Against Cancer Fashion Show [happening tonight if you’re in the Chicago area!] Alexandra. Alexandra owns a shoe store in Buffalo Grove, IL and when we met was wanting to expand her shop to clothing as well! She asked me to create a few graphics for a graphic tee line she had decided to call, Basically, Us. It was a line all inspired by her best friends from college, and well the t-shirt were basically, them!

Honestly, I don’t know what my life would be without my best friends, they make me laugh everyday and push me to be my best— so of course when she explained the line to me I was all in! I loved the idea of a shirt that makes you think of your best friend and I am so happy I have been a part of making the line happen. Check out the other shirts at Basically, Us + all the fabulous shoes at her shop, Stilettos!
