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!

Black + Gray

 Sweatshirt, Gerlan Jeans. Skirt, ASTR. Coat, Topshop. Boots, Dr. Martens. Bag, Kenzo. Bracelet, Anthropologie. Headband, handmade by me.

This could be the least colorful outfit I've ever posted on my blog. A year ago, I wouldn't have been caught dead in black clothing, and now, I can't get enough of it. It's so strange to me how personal tastes can shift so drastically in such a short period of time. Although this outfit is different from looks I've worn in the past, it still feels true to my style.
