guys. aside from getting a facial (aka napping while someone touches
my face) and running a 5k, i have done absolutely nothing today. and
it feels fucking great.
normally my weekends are consumed with brunches (which feel a lot
like work sometimes… gotta get that perfect gram!), shoots (like
what you’re seeing above), and more shoots. so a day off was
and even though i love my me-time, i still want to feature these
incredible photos that my friends kelly, celine & i got for
shopbop’s new spring trends. we repped the “modern americana” trend
and had a blast shooting in handsome dan’s, an east village candy
the original plan was to go buy cotton candy and shoot several looks
outside. well, mother nature said “fuck your plan” and decided to
hand us 30 degree weather, so we had to improvise. after loading all
of our bags into handsome dan’s, we batted our eyelashes and kindly
asked pete (or steve… i can’t remember) if we could casually take
over the place for an hour or so.
and yes, you guessed it, pete fell for our flirtatious (or extremely
aggressive) tactics and granted us access to his candy shop for an
hour an a half. he even let us change in the staff bathroom.
shooting for this campaign was one of the most fun shoots i’ve had.
it was one of those moments where the outcome was way better than
what i could’ve possibly planned ahead of time, and the experience
was ridiculously memorable. the clothes weren’t too bad either 😉
