From formulating fashionable ideas to producing stylish looks, going through the whole process of styling is very fulfilling for me.
How about challenges?
Since a styling requires you to find trendy items at a given budget, this job challenges me to more resourceful.
We know that you're a photographer and you travel a lot. What's the best Instagrammable travel destination for you?
