DOVF Interview with Aziza Morgan – One Woman, Many Talents

What I love about social media is the networking factor that it allows you to have at the touch of a finger. There are so many cool people that you can meet on social media that you never would cross paths with organically in regular life. This happened to me recently while scrolling through my “likes” on Instagram. A person with the handle @artlovescompany had liked one of my pics, I was intrigued by the name so I checked out their profile page. What I found was this amazingly talented and beautiful individual. Read on to find out more about the woman behind the profile: Aziza Morgan.
Aziza 2There were images of everything from her personal style, to hair tips, writing samples, to music, to photography and her adorable newborn! I then went through and liked pretty much all of her pics, lol. I had to know more about her and how she juggled all these talents as well as being a new mom. As usual, whenever I find/meet new people that are unique and creative I love to share them with you. So, I setup a time to chat with her and found out there’s even ore to her than what is seen in the visual collage I first was introduced to on Instagram. I was introduced to Aziza Morgan, but I also met Charlie, August, Margot, and Lola. These are the personalities that make up Art Loves Company, the persona and the brand.

The synopsis of the Rainbow Brite cartoon is as follows: “The adventures of the color protector and her friends (sidekick Twink, the color kids, her horse Starlite, and her human friend Brian).” – IMDb.com
Just in case you are not an 80s baby, I thought I would give a brief intro before sharing the images from the new collection by Anya Hindmarch.  Rainbow Brite was one of my favorite cartoon shows growing up and whenever I see rainbows on anything I tend to think of the show to this very day!

The midi is the new skirt length for the summer. This not loo long, not too short, but just right skirt length can be a casual or dressy look. From work, to weddings, to brunch a midi is the new staple skirt to add to your wardrobe!
With so many options and fabrications to chose from it can be overwhelming to figure out how to begin to incorporate this trend into your existing wardrobe. The great thing about this trend is it can be paired with a variety of different tops, from blouses to crop top t-shirts. It is also a trend that is both heels and flat shoe friendly!
For this post I chose focus on three different skirts and pair them based on a look with a crop top.
