For years I let fear take over a lot of things in my life. There were times when I let fear hold me back on a few things. For example, I always wanted to try modeling and I did get that chance, but I was too scared. When I think about it now, if I tried it, I wouldn’t be in the most boring job ever.

May 14 / 18 Hello and good afternoon…Monday is here and that means it’s a new week. This week will be plenty busy, plenty busy. First up, designer Zac Posen is this month’s Shadow Spotlight. This name should be familiar. Posen has been around for a decade and continues to work his craft through sheer determination. I remember when he first stepped into the fashion spotlight. From Noami Campbell, Claire Danes, Natalie Portman, and many more, who wore his creations, Posen has created quite a portfolio. You could say that designing clothes was in his DNA.
