A dream became reality with the launch of E V O L V E. One way to describe this feeling is that it's like climbing my first mountain and doing a soul dance to the rhythm of my own heartbeat. First and foremost, I'm both humbled and truly grateful for all of the love and support you've shown me thus far. As this movement continues to grow, I will use this platform, alongside my thoughts and imagination, to encourage myself and others as we E V O L V E into the people we are destined to become. Have faith in your potential and follow your dreams; despite what others make think, dreams do come true when you believe in yourself. Chase your dreams and the money will chase you
I knew I wanted to launch a fashion blog in high school, and as a fashion major in college, "Jealena's Boutique" was the fictitious title of most of my class projects. During my internship in Los Angeles, I began working toward making my fashion blog and women's apparel boutique an online reality. I purchased the sassy Olori Blue dress featured above from one of the vendors I sought for "Jealena's Boutique" as originally planned. However, with so much passion, and so many new ideas, I knew I had decisions to make, and I meditated regularly on the direction I should take. Ultimately, I realized my first niche would be eyewear and E V O L V E was born.
