The Little Black Boot

black bootie blog post

 We all get cold feet when trying something new. “Is it really my style?”… “Does it look weird on me?”…“Can I pull it off?” but the right little black boot can beat the cold AND complete an outfit. Sure, your stiletto open toe pumps are sexy, but shivering on a chilly day is the ultimate man repeller. Time to kick winter in the ass…

Buckle up bitches. A little black boot with buckle detailing gives you that trouble maker edge without the trouble of trucking through the cold with frozen toes.

This is not your average “lady in lace” look. Lace-up boots give you that extra pep in your step that will take you from the day office to a night out with the girls.

BFF Behavior: The Ultimate Gift Guide

She’s the friend that will always look on the bright side of things. That drunk text you made, the major work slip-up… no big deal. She will always lift you up whenever you’re feeling down and insecure.  She is a good girl but deserves not just a good, but a great gift.

She’s the friend that can tell when you’re not being yourself. She’s older, wiser, and always knows the right thing to do…whether you like hearing it or not. She deserves something sophisticated with a little sparkle.

Fashion with #nofilter

So, I’m definitely guilty of taking a good 10 minutes editing an Instagram picture before posting… Only to realize the unedited version was probably just fine. Life is better unedited; no filter needed. That’s why our words are meant to be raw, colorful, and even shocking. No black and white “inkwell” or “willow” filter here. Truth is, I would rather someone have #nofilter when they speak, rather than holding something back that would’ve made a difference or created a few laughs.

Models backstage on Make A GifWhen I was backstage at NYFW, I noticed how many of the fresh faced models were just young teenagers.  As they innocently snacked on pizza and ice cream popsicles while waiting to have their makeup done, I cringed at the idea of getting into their personal space before the show.  The last thing I wanted to do was treat them like they were hunted prey.

I tried to put myself in their shoes (which by the way didn’t look too comfy).  I knew if it were me, having my nails done, hair teased, and eyelashes glued on, the last thing I would want to do is give my best pout to a photographer or talk to a reporter.oGO2FV on Make A Gif, Animated Gifs

That’s when I decided to try something different.  Since it was truly laughable how crazy it was backstage, I thought the girls could use a good chuckle to lighten things up. While using the cool new app, PHHHOTO, with the models backstage, I was able to capture their natural smiles and we enjoyed a few laughs. I realized walking in with my iphone 5, that I wasn’t going to capture a better shot than another photographer with a big fancy camera; but, I knew I could give my followers an unique inside peek backstage and an original fun teaser that certainly wouldn’t be found on Vogue.com or WWD.

Remember ladies, never take yourself or fashion too seriously… or you miss all the fun!
