New post, old photos!

These photos are so old! I've had them sitting on my desktop for at least a month now, and I'm just now publishing them! In the past several weeks, I've been spending a lot of time working on my schoolwork and other art-related personal projects, and I haven't spent any time working on my blog. I just finished up an apparel course, as well as a 3D printing course at school-- I plan to post some of my recent work on the blog soon.
In the past few months, as I've been growing out my hair, I've worn this hat so much! When my hair was at a super awkward, in-between length, I would just stuff it all in this hat. Now, my hair has reached a bob length, and I'm pretty happy with the current state of things. If you follow me on Instagram, then you'll know that I recently dyed my hair blonde + yellow! Very exciting!

Abigail Bobo Photography

This past summer, I collaborated with my photographer friend Abigail Bobo on this sparkly photo-shoot. We shot at the Atheneum Rectory in Columbia, Tennessee, which used to be an all-girls school in the 1800s. Most of these photos were taken in a room that was once used as a headmaster's quarters.

All flower headpieces handmade by me; hair, makeup, and styling by me

My moodboard for styling the shoot... I included all kinds of sparkly and iridescent imagery from my inspiration folder on my desktop. Ashish and H0les Eyewear were big inspirations. I don't have the sources of most of the images; most of them are from Tumblr. Please let me know if you know the creators of any of these images, so I can give them credit!

Hello 2015!

Happy New Year, everybody! 2014 was the best year yet, and I'm sure that 2015 will also be the best year yet! In the past year, I collaborated with Print All Over Me, I finished my freshman year at the Rhode Island School of Design, I traveled to Asia for the release of the Candies x Girl with the Flower Spring/Summer collection, I became a textiles major, I wore pink for 15 days, I had some exciting press opportunities, and I made a lot of art!

This year, I resolve to blog more... starting now! I wore this outfit a few days ago to go out to lunch and run some errands. I've been growing out my hair for a while, and I finally have enough hair to wear it up in piggy buns!
