Mine and Sarah Hick’s relationship is a bit serendipitous.
Let’s start at the beginning. I didn’t know her. She didn’t know me. We both happened to be at the Faction V12 Release Party.
It was fun.
As I stood sipping my Boulevard beer, casually and coolly examining all the fashion folk, a girl caught my eye. I spy with my little eye, the cutest girl at this party! She was tall, she was blonde, she was oh-so cool. And she had on THE. BEST. DRESS. EVA. She looked amazeballs. So, of course I went over and talked to her.
Nope, that’s a lie. I just creepily thought how great she looked all night until I went home and tried to scheme up a way to 1.) find out what that dress was and 2.) find out who this girl was. However, the next morning I had completely forgotten all about the girl and the dress so my search came to a halt. I’m not crazy, guys! Mwahahahaha!
But seriously. Fast forward a week or two and I’m styling a photo shoot with the supremely-talented Chris Mullins. The shoot goes swimmingly, so we all decide to pow-wow at his house. And who is there but Sarah! BUT! I don’t recognize her. It was dark at the Faction event, I’d had a few sips of beer (total lightweight), and it’d been two weeks! Everyone is laughing, and talking, and being allergic to dogs (oh, that was just me), but generally having a great time. So much so, that we all decide… to become Facebook friends.
Just like any other self-respecting lady, I immediately click through all of Sarah’s photos and realize, wait for it, she is the girl in the great dress from the Faction party! OH MAH GAWD. Small world, right? Anyway, I quickly realize that her wardrobe choice the night of the Faction party (and even the night at Chris’s casa) was no mere fluke. This lady is stylish all the time.
So, I decide to ask her that question every girl grows up imagining over and over being asked of her, “Will you be featured on The Chest of Drawers?”*
*[Editor's Note: I'm not that delusional about theCoD yet. I don't really think anyone grew up imagining that.]
