Hello Monday! Back to the work week after an exciting weekend. My sister and I spent all day Saturday working on a photo shoot with Volcom for my sister’s Holiday 2012 design collaboration with them. The photo shoot turned out to be a total success. High fives all around. We shot all around Philly at my favorite places. The whole process from styling and location scouting to the actual angles and moments captured on camera was completely organic, and just felt spot on. I think this look book is going to be even better than the last one I shot! I can’t wait for you all to see the finished result. Sunday was spent chilling around the city and catching up with my girl Kim
, whom I haven’t had an actual hang session with in quite a while. It was like the good old days gain, when I first came to Philly, and it made me happy to get back to that place again. Oh, I was also recovering from a short food poisoning bit (never am I again eating crab!). It kind of sucked having to stay in when really I wanted to be out dancing, but sometimes you just have to stay in bed and deal with it. The weekends just couldn’t be longer. I need another chill day . . . pronto.
These pictures were taken during NYFW, right before running into Lincoln Center for the Diane von Furtsenburg show. It was extremely windy and bone-chilling, but we took it all head on to get a few shots. I’m in love with the bright hue of this romantically delicate skirt. The wind actually really helped in showing off its beauty. And once again, I busted out the sequins. My friend Zoey, the designer of DISCO PONY
, sent me this top from her latest collection. As soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew I had to wear it to fashion week. It really is something special. Pairing it with the skirt was the icing on the cake. A match made in heaven. Two extremes together can sometimes make the perfect combination in actuality. This vintage blazer was the only jacket I brought to NYFW (other than a basic black wool coat), and it worked with nearly every outfit I packed for the few days I was in the city. I like to pack smart, reworking a few key items that will save me room and time. I think this blazer is one of my favorite items in my closet. There really is nothing I can think of that doesn’t work with it.
