Here's a short interview I had the chance to do with Brandy! - Zong
When did you know you wanted to do photography? I'm afraid I don't have an exciting answer; it seems to be the generic story of most photographers (or creative's in general). It took me a while before I embraced my love for photography. I've enjoyed creating art my entire life and dabbled in photography during High School and College, but it wasn't until I stopped trying to be someone I knew I wasn't and embraced my true gifts, that I turn to photography as a career choice.
How did you decide on the type of photography? Like all decisions in my life, I struggled when decided what field of photography I wanted to go into. During the last year of my BFA I went back and forth between two areas of focus: Music Industry and Product. I loved the chaos that the Music Industry provided me; it kept me on my toes and I knew I'd never get board. On the other hand, I could get lost in a studio for hours photographing on a set, striving for perfection. Long story short, I decided not to decide. I graduated with a double portfolio, one Music Industry and on Product. So, here I am, photographing concerts, other events, and promotional shoots for bands as well as editorial and straight product shots. For me, it's the perfect mix.
If you weren't taking photos, what would you be doing? Honestly, I've always found this question to be disheartening. Photography is what I love and I can't imagine myself doing anything else, but if I had to choose, I would want it to involve travel or I suppose I could fall back on my childhood dream of working as an animator for Disney.

Hi Girls! Joanne here, fashion blogger at Comma Chic. The Urban Girls Garage Sale is less than 2 weeks away. Previewing the vendors on the blog, I'm already making a shopping list. On the list are fun finds like Chelsea Mae's cute Cowboy boots, Dear Uncle Stu's pretty stationary, and Jessie Bean's handmade accessories. And that's just a list from what I've seen on the blog. What other cute little treasures will I find? I'm so excited to shop with all of you 300+ girls (with 40+ vendors) at this unique pop-up shop! Although it's the first Urban Girls Garage Sale, I've been to a few garage sales and flea markets, and have learned a few important tips. Get ready to shop! Here are 6 tips for shopping the Urban Girls Garage Sale.
1. Arrive Early
Come early to shop the best selection, but be ready for lines (psstt..let's be classy and polite). Doors open to the general public from 11am-2pm, but VIP's get to shop 2-hours earlier at 9am. VIP tickets are $20 a shopper, limited to 100 people, and includes swag and goodies, so purchase those tickets online!
3. Bring Cash
There will be over 40 vendors to shop from including independent retailers and your girl-next-door. Bring cash (especially small bills) to purchase goodies quickly because not everybody accepts credit cards.
4. Bring Bags
Make sure to bring a few shopping bags with you to carry home your fab finds. Stash a couple of canvas totes and recycled-paper bags (also good for wrapping delicate items) in your purse.
5. Bring a Measuring Tape
A measuring tape will be handy when shopping for home goods. You can easily measure an item to see if it'll fit in your home. (Take some home measurements and bring those with you, as well!)
6. Bring a Friend
Invite all your friends and share this awesome shopping experience. You can always trust a friend's second opinion and it's way funner shopping with friends!
Get ready to shop the Urban Girls Garage Sale, Sunday, March 17th. With over 300 RSVP's and 40+ vendors, this is going to be one big shopping event. Make the best of the experience by arriving early; dressing comfy; and bringing cash, some bags, a measuring tape, and good friends. What are some tips you would give? Share in the comments below!

Stop by Shalika and Chelsea Mae's table at the Urban Girls Garage Sale!
Shalika and Chelsea Mae pretty much had a "love at first sight" moment. They connected at the Sugar/Art Fashion Show in Seattle where Shalika was showcasing her unique one-of-a-kind accessories. Not only was Chelsea Mae intrigued by Shalika's merchandise, she was amazed by the affordable prices too! Chelsea Mae and Shalika appreciate when fashion is paired with uniqueness and affordability. They both are passionate about fashion and expressing themselves through fashion and encourage others to embrace their individuality. Shalika and Chelsea Mae have built a strong friendship over the past year and have continued their networking growth in the Seattle Community by attending local fashion shows, music events, trade shows, and yard sales. They find every opportunity they can to shop and discuss fashion!
Shalika currently owns and operates a small boutique in Issaquah, called SOUL Boutique where you can always find the latest fashion trends in new and vintage accessories. Shalika also sells her thrift finds on Etsy and other online new and used clothing outlets such as Copious. Chelsea Mae has worked for an apparel merchandising company for over 3 years and is currently looking for new opportunities and challenges.
