Monday Perusal

Jacket: Uniqlo | Sweater: Gap
   Jeans: Frame | Shoes: Coclico
    Purse | Mansur Gavriel 
     I plan to get back on the posting horse with a few recent outfits and some additional fun conference dressing. Also, here is a link roundup, because it has been a while and a lot has happened. 

For your early-week perusal:
1. There really is no other place to start than the dress. What did you think? I loved the tiara but wished the sleeves had fit better. I was also going to argue she needed more embellishment but then Robin Givhan changed my mind.

For Funs Sake - Part 2

Dress | Self-Portrait
Shoes | Manolo Blahnik
    Today I present Part-the-Second of my photo shoot, featuring partner-in-crime Cait. In addition to being fashionable, she is also an adventurer, and is embarking on an epic bicycle trip soon. She is starting her own blog where you can follow along on the journey and I will follow up with a link when it launches. In the meantime, let's all appreciate her Self-Portrait dress (which just for the record is lined from the top to the mid-thigh) and Manolo Blahnik heels. 

For Funs Sake - Part 1

     I had a birthday recently (woop), and for that birthday I asked a best friend to do a photo shoot with me. Being a creative director for a photo shoot is something I've always wanted to do and that sounds so exciting and creative: planning the outfit, picking the location, thinking about what sort of photo I want to create. It's my way of being an extremely amateur Grace Coddington for a day, while also getting to be an extremely amateur Cindy Crawford, and actually model in the photos as well. This whole experience is probably nothing like the real thing, because in real life I'm sure there are a lot of people vying for a small number of positions in the industry, toiling away and dealing with creative, demanding people for hours in all sorts of climates. This day, as you can imagine, was just fun.
      I knew I'd picked the right woman for the job when, instead of looking at me like I was delusional, she finagled us a fancy camera (thanks JT!), a fancy cameraman (thanks DP!), and suggested we get our makeup done (I mean, if we're doing this, let's do this). We did all of those things, so this post and the next one will feature those photos (one of me and one of her) and, because they came out really nicely and cropping the background just ruined the vibe - they will also feature my face. Fun.
