Personal Style

As much as I love things like draped styles and ankle boots, they just don't flatter my figure. I am more suited for classic looks. Crisp whites, sleek pencil skirts, feminine silhouettes; blues, blacks, grays, all are more flattering than any post modern ensemble I could create. That is where styling comes in. I need to find models and photo shoots so that I may live vicariously. I need to start putting myself out there more. It shouldn't be hard with a friend like Ashley Chanel who is a professional model and muse. I've worked with her before, but have never flat-out styled her. I've brought items for her to choose from when we walked in a small show together, but that was rather passive styling. It's time to start moving!

About the shirt: I keep cutting things off this shirt. The sleeves are long gone, and then a month ago I decide to crop it. I got half way done and liked the tail so much that I left it.

I absolutely feel you on the crisp whites, classic silhouettes, greyblueblack -ness.

And I have to say that this Ochre flavored scarf is just beyond heavenly on you. There's also something so delicate about your photos. Like you are made of liquid. Like a ballerina. But a really good, classically trained ballerina. Not a pink tutu silly willy ballerina.

I love it.
