“The urge to be creative seems to be innate within me. I don't really have to think about it — actually, I can't even really help it. I create because I don't know how to be any other way. I get such happiness out of making something my own, whether it's a design I painted on the wall, a pair of jeans I cut up to feel just right, or an arrangement of plants that makes me breathe a sigh of happiness."
How do you describe the Cleobella girl and the way you feel when you wear Cleobella?
The Cleobella girl is her own person through and through. Wearing Cleobella, I can feel anything from a badass babe to a romantic goddess — Cleobella is all about how you're feeling in the moment.

“You take chances and make mistakes and you know that every moment you're alive has meaning beyond what any of us can even comprehend, so you've figured out how to piece together all of life's little experiences, bitter and sweet, to pave your own path.. And when you look back 50 years from now, you'll smile, because you'll know that you'll have truly lived.”
How do you describe the Cleobella girl and the way you feel when you wear Cleobella?
The Cleobella girl is independent, free thinking, and always seeking adventure. When I wear my Cleobella, I feel light, comfortable and ready to explore. The maxi dress I chose is soft and enchanting.. I love the subtle touches of embellishment and how the light catches the sheer fabric.

Cleobella girls are free spirits, always flowy and forever dreaming. I feel like a wildflower wearing that Cleobella maxi! Feeling well satisfied in it :)

“A lust for life is a yearning to feel every fiber of your being electrified. To go after a dream, to practice saying yes to opportunities and adventures, exploring new experiences and breaking out of your comfort zone. To not limit yourself. To savor every experience. To live life to fullest because darling its just too damn short.”
How do you describe the Cleobella girl and the way you feel when you wear Cleobella?
I think the Cleobella girl is full of wanderlust. She is a bohemian goddess full of life, love and laughter. She embraces experiences, people and places and sticks true to the important things in life. She cherishes life’s simple little moments just as much as she embraces the high energy crazy ones. When I wear Cleobella I feel like embracing my more bohemian, gypsy, wanderlust side and traveling the world. I feel unique and effortless, and special.

“To me, the goal has always been to create something that makes me happy… To live in the moment and enjoy every minute of life. To learn from everyone and everything around. To practice gratitude and mindfulness every day.”
How do you describe the Cleobella girl and the way you feel when you wear Cleobella?
The Cleobella girl is a little boho, a little rocker and a little glam. She's not afraid to experiment with her style. When wearing Cleobella I feel like myself - the whimsical dresses are great for dancing late into the night while the shaggy sweaters add that extra unexpected layer.

“In life we are called to be something. Whether it's a teacher or an artist or a doctor. We all have our creative side. We just have to stop what we are doing and listen. I lust knowing what I want and I also enjoy life knowing where I need to be.”
How do you describe the Cleobella girl and the way you feel when you wear Cleobella?
When I wore Cleobella, I felt empowered, edgy and free. I will describe her as the cool woman who roams the city of New York and isn't afraid to approach people or love them. It would be a girl who is rocking some Indian accents and rustic 80's vibe. She would totally be my muse. She would be the chick who watches 16 candles or The Breakfast Club and travels the world. She could be anyone or do anything and still feel free.
