    Don't give up on ditching your boring 9 to 5 in favor of your dream job, just yet. Instead, take a cue from local designer Azeeza Khan, the gorgeous entrepreneurial spirit behind Atelier AZZA. Only 30 short days after making the impulsive decision to start a biz, she launched her label at New York Fashion Week — naysayers be damned. And, her story isn't the only thing that's ultra-impressive. This go-getter has a killer wardrobe that turns heads whether she's buying groceries or out on the town—don't worry, we've got the snaps to prove it.
