i have been SO excited to share my latest creative collaboration shoot with you,
and i’m finally getting a chance to post the photos here on the blog!
i partnered up with amazingly talented photographer, grant heinlein,
and local model, olivia lyons, to create a dark, yet feminine, fashion-focused spread.
i had a very clear vision in my head of what i hoped the shoot would look like,
but rarely does a project ever come this close to what i hoped for from the beginning!
these two were such a pleasure to work with, and i look forward to more shoots together!
on another note: i’m having a fab time in NYC…
thanks to all who’ve emailed/commented/tweeted with recommendations and well-wishes! 
it’s been so fun hanging out with some of my favorite bloggers,
…bonding in real life is surreal when you’ve known someone online for so long!
stay tuned for a NYFW-inspired weekend wishlist tomorrow,
and don’t forget to follow along on twitter for a play-by-play on the adventure!

    I just caught the last few seconds of the segment on NY Eve’s fashion on Good Morning America. I loved the necklace the model was wearing but do not find any information about the necklace, dress or bag here. Can you give me some information where they came from please?

      The shopping info from the segment can be found on the post titled Good Morning America! :)
