Four years ago I made the decision to begin my own fashion blog on tumbler called Fashion With Jazz; I wanted to write about Denver's rising fashion scene, little did I know that blog would lead me to the city of Los Angles. Back then I was merely a teenager in search of the next great deal and her purpose but blogging lead me to pursue an education and landed me an internship at 303 Magazine. From there I produced fashion shows and wrote on behalf of the magazine, traveled a lot, and got my heart broken a lot. To think of how much we change over the course of four years is astonishing, and while it wasn't all good I can't help but to think that every word I wrote, everything I did lead me to this... Los Angeles. I've left everything I know to move from Denver to LA to chase my dreams. When I was living in Denver no one could quite understood why I wanted to leave; after all I had the job of my dreams, was in an amazing university and a great relationship but what I've learned is that sometimes it's not about the destination, but the journey. When I was blogging it was about growing and changing and moving up, when I began my job it was about proving myself and challenging myself but as any small town girl knows sometimes the town becomes to small and you have to move on. My journey to Los Angeles isn't just a physical move, but spiritual one. It's a move that many in their lives either make or don't make; it's the thing that separates the doers from the dreamers. And while I can't say I know what will come of my big move, or if I will do and be everything I want to, I know it's all about the journey; which is why I've decided to relaunch Fashion with Jazz. It's my way of documenting all the insane changes and places a small town girl goes through when she moves to the big city. There's no telling what I will do, if I will succeed, If I will fail, but for now I'm along for the ride, the coffee, and of course the shopping.
