My friend, Augusta Gail, is one of my favorite people. She’s endlessly positive, big on adventuring, and really funny (I know, everyone’s friends are REALLY funny! But Augusta really is. Her brain is on fire and she’s constantly coming up with new words to describe things. I’m not even sure she aware she’s done it til it comes out of her mouth! The BEST!). When she told me she was looking for her perfect wedding dress and was having trouble, my brain went straight into DIY mode. While making her dream dress is probably too much for us to take on ourselves, we thought it would help to create a shoot that captured the vibe she was going for. So on a unseasonably warm January morning, she came over and brought all of her lacy, see-through, pink, and white-ish clothing. I did her makeup like a pink-flower dappled fawn (a look I’m OBSESSED with giving all of my friends– hit me up and I’ll stick flowers all over your face!) and we guzzled down coffee. We shot in our friend Jenn‘s bedroom, and then went to my studio. We rounded out the day by running around a cactus garden in […]
Jasmin Rodriguez is rock ‘n’ roll girl through and through–so it was easy to decide that I would draw her for my blogger series. Image: Vintage Vandalizm I don’t remember how I found Jasmin’s blog, but I’m glad I did. She’s a fashion forward New Yorker and all around badass: girlfriend is self-contained dynamite! Jasmin styles a lot of her own looks and does make up. Can you deal with those eyes?! I can’t, which is why I’ve casually told her (but SERIOUSLY) that she needs to hold eyeliner workshops. Other things I like about Jasmin: * She pulls her looks from different decades, and they all work on her because she’s totally detail oriented, down to selecting the right wig. * Um, cutiest accent ever?! Check out her videos for proof. * She’s not afraid to wear two piece sets of anything. I’m not talking bikinis (though she works the hell out of them). I mean, for real two piece going out ‘fits. Sexy without being too. *Jasmin is undeniably involved with her blog and social networking–she answers tweets back directly, and seems to really enjoy her readers. For being such a badass, she sure is sweet.<3
Earlier this summer, I put together a set of different blogger portraits.First up, the irrepressible Apocalypstick. Almie Rose is a great writer (read her entry on Katy Perry–she actually has me halfway convinced that I should give Katy another chance), but her real bread and butter are her videos. I DIE! Witness: her brilliant “How to Get Over a Breakup”: Amie, let’s hug and cry. I’ve got some antioxidants just waiting to make us healthier! xo
Let's be BFF's.
Join the list & you'll be dialed in to sweet deals, rad gals, and generally unbelievable badassery.
