Velvet Heart



Stripes, hearts, and bows, oh my – but no, no one hacked this blog. This shirt and these bow-back shoes are not very me at first glance, yet I was inexplicably drawn to them and they were pretty much immediate "add-to-carts" for me. The color of the shirt is more of an orangey-peachy pink than a cotton-candy pink, and I adore the bright velvet heart (god, this shirt has me using words like "adore").



I've long admired the 'Coco' mules from The Row, but knowing that I may very well destroy them with one bad trip across cobblestoned streets, I just can't quite stomach the price. I think that's why I was so drawn to the above pair by Ganni. Totally similar aesthetic but won't put you on an instant-ramen diet for a week.

#TodsAround


I recently photographed a project for Tod's, showcasing some iconic Gommino pieces, in particular, the Gommino loafer and the Gommino Mini bag. I chose a few classic NY spots to shoot in, as I was representing NY among the other worldwide photographers involved in this #TodsAround project. I also tried to keep the styling clean and simple to evoke a sense of that effortless Italian style.

Overcast



I wanted to shoot a personal swimwear edit while out in Montauk this past weekend, but I had a completely different "moodboard" in mind for it that involved harsh light, bright poppy colors, and lots of shadow play. At the mercy of the weather and tight timing, I had to completely rethink the feeling of the shoot and make do with what I was given. I ended up really loving the moody overcast beach and muted colors.
