your Slightest look shoot

A few weeks past, a talented bunch got together at my work studio in Highland Park for a v-Day inspired photo shoot headed by photographer, Christine Hahn.

The adorable Sara Prado and I co-styled the looks combining soft vintage and hard contemporary that played well with the props. The entire team was amazing and the photos turned out so sweet.

Check out more of Christine's super talented work: Christine Hahn Photo & read her musings @ Magical Molar.

the City

My trip to NYC was great fun, but has resulted in a head cold I can't shake. I'm popping Emergen-C like it's life support.

Each day I had a list of stores to visit, each night I caught up with friends and ate amazing New York food. Most of my shopping time was spent in Greenwich Village, the Lower East Side, Nolita & Soho, which I covered all on foot. My thigh-high vintage nine west boots did a great job, but if I moved to the city my footwear would have to be completely upgraded.

Rag & Bone wool Coat, VTG New Hero cut-out Top, Jeggings!, and VTG Nine West leather Boots

Stops on my lists included:
The selection of vintage wares at Resurrection was tempting, but Frock was out of control with numerous YSL silk pieces in mint condition and a knit Chloe dress that could make you melt.

I also shopped my friend Danielle's closest at her fabulous pre-WWII apartment, I ended up with a some new favorite designer pieces including adorable In God We Trust high-waist shorts and a pale pink Mayle slip dress.

Our final night in the City we had a room booked at the Thompson Hotel LES. The front desk guy totally hooked up the corner space which had wrap around windows and balconies- only one per floor. After a large, late dinner we forced ourselves to check out the club Above Allen on the 7th floor. It was a cool vibe- but one drink later we were ready to head for the room.

On the flight back I had sweet dreams of vintage couture.
