About Michelle:

I’m a 20 year old from a tiny little town in southwestern Missouri. Seriously, my graduating class was 65 people! I’ve been making clothes since I was 14 or 15, gradually becoming more interested in the “fashion world” so-to-speak. I actually went to one semester as a fashion design/fashion merchandising double major, but it was also in a small town and it was rather more…conventional? shall we say, than my tastes. (read: the professors and most of the other students were absolutely not a huge fan of my green-and-purple mohawk!) I moved back and tried my hand at cosmetology school; it wasn’t a perfect fit either. I’ve just accepted that fashion and style are my true loves! My husband and I just moved to Buda (about 5-10 minutes south of Austin) in June and I am so excited about the opportunities living near a bigger city will offer us! Aside from writing/fashion, I love sewing, reading (mostly fantasy-type things, I love just about everything by Neil Gaiman), and my cats!
