I’ve always been the kind of gal who has quietly interpretive danced to the beat of her own drum. Between my vivid imagination and dark, dry wit, I’ve always had a flair all my own. I mean, I was the kid who watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (you know, the OG one with Gene Wilder, not the creeptacular Tim Burton remake with Johnny Depp) and found myself relating more to Wonka than actual child and story protagonist, Charlie Bucket. Cool coat, killer sweet tooth, insanely awesome imaginatorium, and a disdain for bratty, loudmouth kids? You basically just described eight year old Emily (see also: present day Emily). It’s true! I’ve always had a different way of looking at things. I once had a college painting instructor stand behind me during an independent study painting class and after observing my progress for a while declared, “You have a strange brain” and then just. walked. away. (side note: WHO DOES THAT?). To this day I’m honestly not sure whether she meant that weird truth bomb as an insult or compliment, but I’ve chosen to accept it and lean in. Let’s face it, that same “strange brain” led me to take mixology to a whole.nutha.level. Sure, you’ve heard of pattern mixing, but have you ever heard of statement mixing? No, of course you haven’t, I just made it up.  Don’t worry though, the formula is pretty simple: take three ridiculously bold items that would be the standout of any other outfit (in this case the brightest flats and funkiest blazer and clutch that you ever did see), put them on your body, and then own that decision. You’d be surprised what you can wear if you just believe that you can.
