two little cards i did when i started writing calligraphy, which was only a couple months ago. things change fast. i’ve been away working on exciting projects and i wish i had more time to talk about it and show you all of the wonderful things going on but first thing’s first and there are things to be made right now. perhaps one day i’ll figure out how to manage this blog as well. for now, i’ll post things as much as i can – randomly, spontaneously and most definitely unchronologically but that’s alright i think.

wardrobe: Back In Style
photog: Valerie Petralia
stylist: Brandy Swope
model: Romina / Elite

We killed this shoot, i don’t care. Romina is drop dead gorgeous, as you can see.. and the location was again – amazing. Thank you to our good friend and fam – Jacob, for hooking us up. Another cool body, Anna, came out to support and assist on this day and we were very grateful to have another helping hand. Thanks Anna!

Back in Style once again supplied our shoot and the last look – the sheer black embroidered jacket…. a;lskdfj. SO gorgeous. The white ensemble was just as breathtaking – so lucky to be working with such badass clothing.

AIN’T NOBODY DOPE AS ME

wardrobe: Back In Style / Madalynne
photog: Valerie Petralia
stylist/MUA: Brandy Swope
models: Becky Hardin / Maddie Flanigan

Maddie and Becky were so sweet to work with.. looking so fresh and clean on this style shoot.. also, the bathroom was to. die. for. and you know the clothes make you want to be a professional housewife. we started early and the natural light was definitely our friend, coming through the windows all perfect..

Becky looked beautiful (and tasteful!) in Back In Style’s yellow knitted robe and Madalynne’s flower-printed bloomers.. the pearls just added loads to the what-a-lady factor. i mean, what a freakin’ lady. i wanna be her. the last look with the denim and the pearls. no puedo. i love it, i can’t [take it].

OH HEY

this is a shot from a while back. and it still brings a smile to my face. my boyfriend is so good looking, i know.. the incredible jacket is from Back In Style. as always, holdin it down.

chris and i are the biggest homebodies you’ll ever meet and predictably, we stayed in this valentine’s.. but! we have plans to celebrate with friends this weekend at a BBQ on a farm (i miss home!) with other valentines and their valentines’.. excited! and yyes, i’m being cheesy saying that christopher is my valentine every day, muah, muah, muah.

hope everyone had a day full of love.. and i hope you don’t forget that the world needs a few more days dedicated to it. all kinds, most importantly.. my mom sent me a big bouquet of purple lilies which are opening up beautifully on my desk as we speak..
