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.

Jacket Envy

OKAY. This jacket is literally my favorite thing ever. It’s by Natalia Meyer of Lucia’s Sarto on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. I think that it is so unique with the mix of fabrics and the uneven hem. I kept the outfit simple to keep the focus on the jacket and I love to show that you can mix inexpensive pieces with designer ones.

Also I LOVE how these photos turned out. It was lightly raining during this shoot and it added the perfect amount of gloomy creepiness.
