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.

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.

One of my closest friends Christina looking flawless as per usual in her Third Ward Loft. She was gracious enough to let me raid her closet and basically rearrange her apartment for a day to take some photos! The brunette beauty enjoys hanging out in her living room and cuddling with Snuggles, her fluffy pup, and Joseph, her botany expert beau. Scattered around her cool + chic bungalow are many different blooming plants of various shapes and sizes. “Plants are food for the soul. They breathe life indoors and filter out harmful or negative toxins. They make a house a home and fill it with greenery and joy.” In other words, plants + place = good vibes.

Christina has a wonderful eye for selecting the chicest of the chic when it comes to her wardrobe, or pretty much anything else. Christina’s closet pictured below, is dripping with eye-catching textures, like monochromatic prints, furs, leopard pumps, and lots of leather, must haves for any “it” girl.
