We took a stroll on a fine Sunday afternoon. Hannah, my muse, and I took a quick pit stop at the East Side Coin laundry, as well as a local dive bar, Y-NOT II. I hand-picked a select few to show just for you. I hope you enjoy.

A Cool Project: Gone Rogue

DSC_0722.jpg

Thrift shopping is a go-to past time of mine. I really enjoy picking out the hidden treasures that may lie hidden beneath piles of all sorts of odds and ends.

I found a Cadet Kelly worthy army jacket (props to those of you who know that Hilary Duff reference, cinematic gold) in a thrift shop the other weekend. This jacket even has the old name written inside and everything, Gulliver. Fitting I think, I don’t know why. I picked it up and decided to shoot it together with a cute ensemble.

Meet my muse, Kelsey Garfoot. She has extensive experience in sweetness and also textile design. She is magic when creating crystal-embroidered items and body jewelry. You may remember her from a shoot I did this past summer with her and some of her friends! Feel free to scroll back a page or two to see that, called A Primitive Project. Enjoy our little collaboration, which I am sure will not be the last.

A Parisienne Project: Beau Fille

I knew Anne a lonngg time ago, from a shoot we were both booked on a few years back, or it may have been a fashion show, yikes, my memory escapes me. None the less, she is an absolute sweetheart and I am so grateful we’ve been able to stay friends for so long. Anne currently works and lives in Madison, W.I., and is employed at ShopBop.

She loves Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago is incredibly sweet, funny, as well as an avid Packer fan, which is always plus in my book. I enjoy her company immensely, and when we collabed for a fun little shoot, magical things happened. She also told me about this awesome company she repped in her first look. I can’t wait share shots with you below.

“All Aspects Apparel is an art and lifestyle brand based out of California. I know Matt, who is part of the design team and he also helps run their Instagram account. We went to school (MATC) together and have been homies ever since. He moved to Cali and has been living his dreams. (Super jealous of him haha! )

I like the All Aspects brand and their overall style. They have some awesome stuff out right now for fall and they have the best dad hats ever!”

Chemical Composition: SiO2

Color(s): Clear, Pink (Rose Quartz), Orange, Purple, Black, Blue, Green, Brown, Purple (Amethyst), Yellow (Citrine), White, Gray and Yellow (Ametrine)

Weekend Getaway: Los Angeles, C.A.

Summer is here and I am so glad I got to see my beautiful cousin Ginny this past weekend. She currently resides in Los Angeles, and is the ultimate true blue Californian beaut, the cousin not the city. Needless to say, she’s pretty badass and I am very proud of what she has accomplished. I hope you all had a great weekend! Enjoy.

Here are some fun excerpts from my quick trip. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to take as many photos as I had liked due to the busy schedule and just wanting to catch up with the cousin. We only ever get to see each other once in a blue moon, so it’s so nice that I got to hang and say my hellos!

First, we woke up and grabbed some much needed coffee, threw on some makeup, tornadoed the ground and tabletops with girl crap, gabbed, got dressed, and off we went to spend our money and our calories.
