It’s time for me to share with you more pictures of my beautiful Dyke Duds collaborator, Ashley Yielding. Ashley, like me, is one for color schemes. Not every style needs a color scheme; in fact a lot of more feminine hippy styles these days thrive on not matching. But if you’re going for a more preppy, street smart, or tomboy look, color schemes can help bring out the swag. Ashley’s into the primary colors and whites which I consider a bold and worthy choice, perhaps because it goes with my personal aesthetics.
Might I also add how exciting it is to collaborate with someone I’ve never met who lives 1,456 miles away? I know what you’re thinking: What is it like working with your fashion idol? Amazing. It’s hard to not get overwhelmed with feelings of elation and grandiosity every time we make an email exchange.
