Free People October Catalog Sneak Peek

September 28, 2010
So, for their October catalog the Free People team decided to go a more realistic route by using fashion bloggers we know and love to model their clothes. These are girls like us that we are inspired by every single day. To them, fashion is not a job but a passion that they cannot help but infuse into nearly every aspect of their lives. It just makes sense they they should be the ones wearing and styling the clothes. The upcoming Free People October catalog is paying tribute to all of us who blog about fashion because we love it. Without fashion bloggers, fashion would never feel or look so real (or so damn good). And with Free People, getting dressed for fall is like taking a peaceful meander through the forest and not getting lost at all.

As promised, I would provide you guys with a little behind the scenes footage from the actual photo shoot my sister Natalie and I did in Philadelphia this past summer. It was extremely hot this day (like tropical weather status), so I looked pretty blah with blisters on my heels and mosquito bites on my legs, but my sister looked fab! I love seeing how the outfits we styled together translate into a pretty picture. I know this upcoming catalog is going to be amazing! Enjoy these behind the scenes pics up above taken in the Free People Creative Director’s awesome pad, a restored warehouse. It was the perfect setting for the brand’s latest collection of knits and earthy patterns. And there is even a sweet video to go with it so you can finally see us in action!

The catalog comes out October 5th, so watch out for it! It also features Rumi from Fashiontoast and Georgia from Dora’s Fur.

Indian Summer

September 27, 2010

Vintage skirt, Theory tank, vintage Bally purse, Kelsi Dagger heels

My biggest fashion obsession right now is the 3/4 length skirt. I love floor skimming maxis too, but there is something romantically refreshing about showing off your ankles without giving it all away like the mini skirt does. I noticed many of the spring/summer shows featuring this length, and this made me so happy and even more determined to continue my hunt for more of these babies. Besides this, they are just too much fun to wear. I found this one last week in Hollywood at a random thrift shop. Its warm and earthy hues pulled me in. It was very hot the day I wore this outfit, but I see it fitting in nicely alongside my leather motorcycle jacket and oxford booties on a chillier day. Even though it is officially fall, we’re having a major Indian summer here in Southern California right now. Autumn please come on back to us as soon as you can! Pretty please. With a cherry on top.

Now I am going to dig into one of the books my mom recently got for me, White Oleander by Janet Fitch. It is amazing and I cannot put it down. Strange that I haven’t read it sooner, especially with the amount of time my nose is found stuck in a good book. I love it when my mom surprises me with random books every now and then. She knows my taste and she knows what a bookworm I am.

Hey yo! I’m 23 ya’ll!!! Brand new age, brand new blog. I’ve worked out a lot of design elements recently on here, and because of it have lost a lot of old pictures, as well as tripped up the HTML on many old posts (reason why they no longer show up). But I’m always ready for a fresh new start. And more ambitious goals in mind for my life and for the life of this blog. Are you guys ready? I have a new camera on hand, so you can be sure to see the photography quality increase, something I am super excited about.

For now, let me show you two collages of images that are inspiring right now. I haven’t created a collage in ages. And since my inspiration folder was bulging at the seams, I thought why not?

black leather / slouchy layers / delicate flowers with messy hair / glitter on our faces / sleek hair against sharp black

a big gap-toothed smile / a clean-faced Carey Mulligan (love her) / ice princess white from head to toe / a closeup pout and see-right-through-you stare / knitted headgearPictures from The Fashion Spot, Knightcat, Studded Hearts

I plan on spending today relaxing and eating with those I love. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend! I know I will, even though another heat wave has settled in again.
