Yes, my shirt says what you think it says. #sorrynotsorry
As you may or may not have noticed, I've been working a lot lately with the talented photographer Lydia Hudgens. She's done lots of work for very well known bloggers (Blair, Nicolette, Liz, and my close friends Alicia and Grace to name a few), as well as editorials for incredible companies like Intermix, Veronica Beard, and more. I'm in good company. When I asked her to collaborate with me on creating something a little different for my blog, she happily suggested doing a little work in film photography and I was thrilled to oblige.
Today's post (and this coming Friday's!) was a bit of an experiment for us and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I want this virtual space to be about more than what I'm wearing that day; It's my creative outlet, somewhere to come and be inspired, and somewhere to encourage you to do the same. Lydia & I had so much fun exploring Brooklyn to shoot these and playing with this incredible natural light in digital, film, videos, and polaroids.
So, the clothes. I was originally planning on re-wearing the pajama top from this post with the skirt, but when we went to shoot, this tee was so, so much better. It's actually a creation of Lydia's. It was an old tee that she cut up, and she was generous enough to let me borrow it (along with a number of other pieces I've worn in photos! What are friends for?).
Ahh, and that trusty leather jacket. Everyone needs one. I bought this perhaps six years ago and sized up two sizes so that the arms were roomy enough to layer over a sweater, but got the torso taken in so that it was still flattering (I honestly believe that a good tailor can make you look 100x more svelte). If you're looking to spend on one, might I suggest Muubaa's cognac leather version? Or if you want to really splurge, IRO's buttery soft classic moto style?
