So with fall finally being here, I find that it is very easy for me to sink into the funk of the same outfit. I generally stay away from certain trends because I usually think they really aren’t for me, but recently I have really been branching out and facing my fashion fears so to speak.
My quiet rebellion against labor day rules is still going strong and I really love this style of dress/romper hybrid. The white strip combo always screamed Beetlejuice to me up like a classy Beetlejuice right?
Hey, honeybees hope you al haveing a lovely weekend while I’m away… while your reading this I am likely to be enjoying some food by the fire. I hope your all having a lovely week and hope your plans for the wonderful Memorial weekend are full of splendor I know I will be having loads fun.
I’m going camping this weekend and I am super excited!!! I know I don’t really read as the type of person to be roughing it in the woods… up until about 4 years ago, I would have laughed in your face if you said you were going to take me for an extended weekend trip into the gosh darn forest. This year I am very much excited about the prospect of disconnecting and being one with nature and finding my “zen” so to speak.
We all have that friend that when you think about them you can’t help but laugh or smile, that one person in your life that when they show up they really just light up a room and make you feel like your day just got better….. yea for me that’s Ashley Turcheck. Not only is she a bad ass Graphic Designer and my style inspo for minimalist chic perfection (not that there is anything minimal about me) she also has a keen eye for design that is honestly lacking in the design world lately. She has this ability to light up the room with her smile and her laugh that you can hear from a million miles away (sorry Ash I had to say it). My go-to person when I need style advice and the soul sister that vibes with me when I am on the quest for a new lipstick. But not to draw out this introduction to long let us just get down to it, shall we?…
What was your first graphic design inspiration?
I have always been obsessed with fashion magazines. I remember begging my mom for a copy of Teen Vogue when I was ten years old. Flipping through the pages, I was fascinated how everything was pulled together: the photography, the colors, the fonts they chose. I didn’t realize then what exactly graphic design was, but I wanted to learn how to do everything they were doing in that publication. Now, I have shelves filled with my old Teen Vogue issues, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar and I always turn to them for inspiration.

Thanks so much for joining us,
Everyone has that friend who is super talented and always has killer style. The friend that when you’re just running for coffee in the morning and you say keep it chill (meaning your gonna roll out of bed in sweats and put your hair up in a bun) shows up looking like a million buck and claims this is their ‘chill’ look. That person in my life is Cale, he is one of the most talented and fashionable people I know, so when I decided to start my Bizzy Knows series feature some of the amazing people in my life he was the first person that came to mind. Cale is an artist based in State College currently but will soon be leaving me for
warm and sunny Ísafjörður, Iceland (insert weeping emoji here lol). His eye for fashion is one of the many things we have in common and is love and use of color always leave me in awe. I asked Cale to style three looks for his feature casual(you’ll see what I meant in the intro in a sec.), trendy, and art inspired. Next, I sat down with him to pick his brain about both the beauty and fashion industry and his take on the art industry read more on his unique take on things below.
