Something Old, Something New

On Set - Editorial Shooting

One week ago today my dreams came true.  I never would have imagined at the start of 2016 that I would move to London, England and actually have the opportunities that I have been given.

The day started with us stylist prepping our clothes (organizing and steaming) just before the models arrived, and then they were into hair and makeup.  Next up was the styling.  Above is a picture of one of my classmates/fellow stylist dressing her model.  Below are a few great shots from the day.

Here are a few shots of the model styled in my look.  My styling choices encapsulated the brief's theme which was Hippie Luxe.

Sourcing in Something Old

Hey guys, I have been shopping almost non-stop as of late for my very first editorial shoot, and although it has been a lot of fun, it is also very tiring...hence my face in some of the pictures.

Believe it or not but, it was incredibly hot in London over the weekend.  However, I still don't trust the weather here, so I wanted to dress nice and cool, but just in case the temps started to drop I wanted to be able to cover myself.  I picked up this maxi dress some time ago at a Goodwill for a few bucks.  Usually, I wear it belted at the waist for a dressy look, but this particular day I just wanted to wear it loose because I felt it looked best with the sneakers.   And this comfy look with the sneakers were a must for running around London, and going in and out of the shops down on Oxford Street.
