I was asked by Mika, a new magazine which creates shopable editorials, to style a look featuring some of my fave designers. Behind the scenes previews to follow.
The morning after #AllSayntsDay, I woke up late, or better stated, I clicked the snooze on my iPhone one too many times and had to run out of the house with no time to do my hair. Luckily, most of my fro stayed in tact from the night before, leaving me with some volume to work with and instant sex hair, a look I can normally only accomplish after a marathon bang session.
Okay, too much info and moving on…
Mika, an amazing new company focused on e commerce via beautiful cinomograph-like images and editorials, asked me to style one of their launch looks. I asked my friends at Cynthia Rowley if I could pull a few pieces from her Spring collection for the shoot, a collection which has been slowly finding it’s way into my closet since shopping the designers store with Alicia Lund from Cheetah’s the New Black a few months ago. We are still editing the photos, but above is a behind the scenes look of the campaign.
If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen a few more photos of the actual outfit.
Since my hair was already a mess, I decided to stick to an 80s themed look, wearing a vintage Escada shirt, which has the most fun turtle print. I personally hate turtles, with the exception of the teenaged Ninja variety, but the shirt was bright and colorful and just what I need to pair with my new custom Modern Vice shoes, a brand I’ve been lusting over since I tour their factory a few months back with Jordan Adoni, the founder, and blogger/shoe muse Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty.
It’s a variation of their Jett boot and they’re to die for. The bright yellow and blue remind me of the outfits X-men would wear, which makes me feel a bit like a superhero while wearing them.
Knowing I’d be set most of the day, I wore a pair of stretch James Jeans in an 80′s hue.
Can’t wait to share the final photos with you!
