Ball-Pit Color-Block

I saw this super tacky, rainbow, color block dress on Nasty Gal and fell in love with how weirdly loud it was so obviously, it was an instant purchase. I knew that this was made for some kind of “out there” shoot and had just the idea.

Channeling my inner McDonald’s play-place loving self, I did a photoshoot in a ball pit. I was inspired by the ugly location challenge and haven’t seen anything like this. I worked with the super talented Jordan Marc and he made my ball pit dreams a reality. Definitely give his work a look, it’s incredible! I am so glad I got to meet and work with such a down to earth creative person.

Hope you enjoy these childish, bright images below. I plan on creating more high quality, editorial-like content very soon.

Midnight Downpour

About to go to sleep listening to the loud thunderstorm outside my window, I receive a notification on my phone with a message saying “is anyone down to shoot in the rain right now?”. Although I was super comfortable, I had never done anything like this before and shot out of bed.

This post is not fashion related by any means but these images are way too good not to share. Photographer Anna Tripolitis came up with the whole concept and direction and turned it into a beautifully edgy shoot.

Red on Red : Como Collabs Meetup 2

Red has recently been my absolute favorite color ever. I have been incorporating a lot of this color into my outfits and hope it never goes out of style.

This jacket is one of the coolest pieces I own. I purchased it at a vintage / antique store in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas, Texas. Vintage pieces add some kind of unique flare to everything and I try really hard to include many vintage or thrifted things into my personal style.

These shots are from the second Columbia Collaboratives meet up shot by Rachel LeighKassidy Jones, and Lexi Churchill in that order. Be sure to follow the official Instagram account and if you live in COMO come to a meet up or use the hashtag #comocollabs to be featured.

Tweed and Leather : Como Collabs Meetup 2

This was such a fun and easy look to put together. I love the chic, European feel of the tweed and fur jacket mixed with the edgy rocker leggings and heeled booties; it’s almost Parisian inspired. I think it makes for something different and unique. Of course I am wearing my favorite black newsboy hat to tie everything together.

These shots are from the second Columbia Collaboratives meet up shot by Anna Tripolitis. Be sure to follow Anna on Instagram and like on Facebook. I also have part two from the meet up coming soon. I shot two outfits and wanted to keep them separated.
