JoJo, My Sidewalk Shoot With…

Sep, 6th, 2015

Hippy Chick Chic
I was speaking with my friend Myriam who confessed she was a hippy at heart. The idea began germinating and a hippy themed shoot was born!
Then panic set in. How could I recreate a look from 40 years ago? I started by making a list of vintage shops. I stopped in Aldo shoes and to my surprise I found the perfect pair of 5″ platform chunky heels.
On the day of the shoot JoJo and I stopped at Club Monaco, Zara and Forever 21. It was amazingly easy to find floppy hats, fringed items and wide legged jeans. It was apparent the 70’s look is in-style for the 2015 fall season.
JoJo’s outfit came from the following stores:
Black & Red Hats: Aldo Shoes
Sunglasses: Claire’s
Black & Red tops: Forever 21
Vest: Forever 21
Jeans: Forever 21
Purse: Zara
Heels: Aldo Shoes

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Sahika

Mar, 8th, 2015

Today I enjoyed the thoughtful “touches” Sahika used to create her outfit. It was the perfect complement to the cherry blossoms in bloom: light and colorful. When we met her coral colored jeans caught my eye. She balanced it with a light tan trench coat and matching platform pumps. Her two toned purse matched both her coat and blouse. Her earrings fluttered with the slightest breeze. Then I realized the blue feathers of her earrings matched her blue fingernail polish. I also appreciated her minimalist approach for selecting one signature piece of jewelry (her ring). Her outfit also included a backpack which was hidden from view. She’s enrolled in an Event Management program. After we finished shooting she dashed off to assist her classmates with a group project.
