I don’t fucking care what you’re eating, or what you’re wearing. Also, you look dumb taking so many selfies. Get a life.
I’m obviously no professional photographer, but I am practicing (when I can actually find the time these days..) and I am really passionate about shooting my look books
They are immense amounts of fun, but a lot of people don’t realize the tremendous amount of work that actually goes into them! Hair, Makeup, Styling, Shooting, Modeling, Editing… but when they all come together and your model is killing it and you see that two second preview of your money shot on your lcd monitor..your heart literally skips a beat and it’s fucking magic.
I’ve been really lucky to work with some fantastic models up to this point, and it really makes all the difference in the world. Not trying to toot my own horn here, but I’d like to think I have a good eye for spotting the true magicians amongst the pretty girls. Some girls just have that X-factor. One of my new favorite gems is Zoe Cross
Here are some other images I love

Those Bo Derek braids and those Minimale Animale suites!

And get this shit: She’s only 15! Girl is going to do big things for sure.
It seems like every new brand I fall head over heels in love with lately comes from Australia – particularly Byron Bay.
Arnhem creates beautiful bohemian pieces in the most beautiful colors and prints. I have never actually touched an Arnhem garment, but I can tell just from the photographs that they’re soft and comfortable.
I love these photos from their Winter collection
Gorgeous model – I love that tiny bruise on her leg. I have been dreaming about that emerald green kimono…trying to not to do too much damage on my credit card…trying..

Annnddddd Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane has dressed the duo
I saw them in .. what year?? 2007??.. in Coney Island. It was sheer insanity. When you get together and talk about that show with other people who went it’s like a bunch of war vets exchanging stories. Our “seats” where originally waaaaay too far away, but after a lady friend sweet-talked a security guard, we got our asses on the field – three rows of sweaty humans away from the glorious pyramid. Probably the single best night of my entire life.
This was the show:
This video was shot by 250 cameras from the audience and put together by Olivier Gondry. I can’t watch any footage from this concert without getting chills. I am way too hyped for 11:13am at the office.
I’ll try to stop geekin out now.
Happy April 15th to all those hard working accountants out there! Cheers! Hopefully now that tax season is finally over I’ll be updating much more! Also went to the NJ gem show yesterday, so there’s new jewelry on the horizon too. But for now, thank goodness work will be winding down.
Russian fashion designer/style icon Ulyana Sergeenko is straight up eye candy for me.
She’s basically a fairy tale princess in my eyes.
I like my couture with a side of whimsy. I enjoy when fashion merges with photography and becomes a story book of a land far away filled with brave and romantic characters that I can get lost in. So when I saw Ulyana’s Spring 2013 couture collection I literally gasped. I don’t know if I’ve ever loved a series of photographs so much.
I love every aspect of these photos so much it hurts my damn heart. If I could paint, I would paint every one.
I will definitely be trying that cat-eye with a pop of light blue under liner. Sheer perfection.
