I decided my career with my gut, not my mind, nor society’s. From becoming a licensed cosmetologist at the age of 18, attending an Art school instead of the conventional college, getting married and moving from California to Atlanta to pursue my career in Costume full time.

It hasn’t been easy. I had to feed my craft with studying and networking and I am still hustling to be at my dream peak. However, the sacrifice, commitment, and challenge is a fun one, because I love it. So this blog is not only to share my love of fashion but to also highlight people on the same journey as me in the midst of growing in life.

So read and comment on TheePaulaRenee’s Fashion, Features, and freakin’ life.
