==- The I AM Collection -==

The collection I AM was inspired by the beautiful women in my life. Many who have different facets that make them unique and amazing. The reason for this collection was I wished to celebrate one quality that defined beauty in these women. So I began with Bold.

Bold, for she is confident in what she wants as she stands tall and proud walking in a sturdy stride. She moves her hips in a soft sway not too sexy, nor rigid, but in complete confidence . She knows the men watching her are following her every move, her graceful movement of her hands as she picks up her business papers, and swings her purse over her shoulder. She lifts her bag just so to reveal her tone legs knowing very well whose watching. A seduction so subtle, yet so… bold. She is every bit a woman who knows what she wants and when she wants it, and will stop at nothing to get it. For she is independent as well as strong. With a soft smile on her lips she leaves the business building with a slow glance over her shoulders catching the men quickly looking away. That smile remains, for the bold woman will play this game again tomorrow.  She knows seduction takes time, and she’s patient enough to wait for who she wants and when.
