Not So Enchanting

Photographer: Alex O
Model: Sarah F. w/ Neil Hammil
Styling: Yvette C. aka me

Clothes pulled from:
Barney's Co-Op in the Galleria
Brown Eyes Blue Boutique in Rice Village
Shoes from Donald J. Pliner

The task was to style a fall shoot in June...
the problem with that is stores don't have fall
merchandise in June. I did my best and was not
happy with the models at all. I don't know what
the deal is but this editorial was suppose to be out
in July then it was pushed to August then September.
The photographer asked me to restyle the shoot with
clothes pulled from Sak's which I declined since he wasn't
going to pay me for it. And I would have to work on my only
day off. It is hard work making sure you don't get charged for
messing up really expensive clothing (make up, careless models).
This seemed more like a test to me then an editorial shoot.
Still not my full potential but definitely happier with the
clothes then previous shoots I've done. Except for rap shoots
which always equal bling, tight clothes, fur and shiny things.
Anyways, send me your thoughts criticism and suggestions.
I'm down for negative or positive but keep it constructive.
I will post more from another set soon.

I am a true addict in that whatever
makes me feel good I want more of,

whether it's good for me or not.

My Dream Gladiator

Balenciaga Spring 2008

Lacey Gladiator Heel

This is a good watered down version of the
Balenciaga gladiator pictured above. I like that
you can see the influence as opposed to it being
an exact copy.

Note To Self: Save $$$ for Balenciaga gear.

On Thursday, Mel and I went to Dallas to see
The Cool Kids/The Party play. I guess I must
have had too much Tanqueray because I forgot
to take more pictures. boo!

These flowers tried to beat me up...

but they lost.
