I'm all moved into my new apartment, but now I am trying to figure out what to do about blog photos! Before I had this awesome roof that I nearly always had to myself that just had stairs leading up to it and a door onto the roof. Now I have roof access again, but this time with a shaky ladder and a hatch to lift open at the top. Not the best Idea to go climbing it with a tripod in hand. Plus it's raining out. Plus its getting cold out. Trial and error I suppose. I do have some nice white walls and great light in my bedroom, so lets see what comes of that.
On a more happier note, Nicole from Gypsy Warrior sent me over this cool printed top as a piece of their new collection of 70s vintage. She thought I would be able to do it justice since she knows me to love most things 70s and rock n roll. I have to say I maybe went a little David Bowie on this one, pairing it with these black and white striped pants. I really cant help but match a pattern with another pattern all the time. It always seems like the proper thing to do.

I am so pleased in so many ways to finally reveal the Mayflower Supply Co. look book! A few months back Liz of Olive My Love and I went on up to western MA to work with the wonderfully talented photographer Courtney Hall. These are her stomping grounds, she took us to all the best spots to make sure we had a beautiful backdrop for MSC's debut. I got to style and model for this wonderful New England collection of vintage clothing curated by Liz with the keenest of eyes. Keep an eye on this shop, it is going to do great things. Starting with vintage now, Liz will later be stocking Mayflower with your favorite heritage brands and other well made clothing, accessories and home goods.

A few months back I came across this designer when my friend Emma told me about a book she had just bought called Tie-Dye. It's written by Shabd Simon-Alexander and gives step by step instructions on some beautiful techniques she developed for her designs. I had no idea at first the beautiful clothing Shabd also made, and was blown away by the spectacular colors and dying methods when I first caught a glimpse. This is the SS12 collection, inspired by her trip to Mexico and really showcases her play on color theory and experimentation with some really beautiful prints! Apparently, the use of digital printing really allowed her to make some amazing creations with dye and reproduce it all over the sleek simple designs. Definitely someone to keep an eye on!

A little late on sharing this, it does not weaken the excitement I had to get a feature on Boots & Pine last month. Shot and written by a new friend of mine (and fellow AHS enthusiast and weekly watching partner) Arden Wray, this website spotlights all sorts of creative women in different fields who stand out to her. I first met Arden the day she came to shoot my friend Samantha Pleet, I learned she had recently moved to Brooklyn from Canada to work on restoring an old Inn upstate that her parents bought. But that's another story for another day. For now, head on over to Boots & Pine to check out my full feature and interview, as well as a whole slew of my lady friends and many many more!

So excited to show off for the first time the Jane Sews SS13 look book! I had the huge pleasure of styling these lovely summer dresses for this South African Designer, with photos shot by Amber Mahoney and modeled by Hannah Metz. It was a perfect September day, we took a drive up to Newburgh NY where we found the most perfect little historical district filled with lovely Victorian homes and we made this magic happen!
