Today in New York the temperature will reach close to 100 degrees and humidity will have some of us cussing under our breathes, yet I’m sharing photos I took of Reiss’s F/W 2012 collection which I got a chance to preview.
I love staying ahead in fashion. It’s something to look forward when we are going through hot days like this one. We know in the coming months, that leather shorts will replace the denim ones some of us have been wearing like they’re uniforms.
Bad hair days due to humidity will no longer have us hiding under the straw brim hats that took some of us forever to find. Instead the fall/winter hats will have us willing skip a hair appointment or two.
Plus the layered outfits will be welcomed back into our lives like the layered slices of cake that will have us covering our stomachs in the first place.
So ladies start looking ahead, it does get shinier at the end of the seasonal tunnel.
My M. I. F.A (Missing In Fashion Action) status these past few days has been very productive and exciting. I’ve been busy putting together a fashion editorial with the coolest team; Lindsay Cullen (makeup artist), Meredith Hurd (model), Sino Chum (videographer) and yours truly as stylist and photographer. Yup I took my Canon out to have some fun on the set this past Sunday, and I have to say with each click and flash, I got better and better.
The four of us had one day to create several mini-fashion stories using fall garments from designers such as Blaque Label, Isabel Lu, JJ Winters, and Muubaa. No outfit was complete without accessories and a good mix from Laruicci, Tuleste Market, and vintage jewelry made the looks into statement makers which gave me countless options to chose from and in return we worked from sunrise to sunset doing what we love!
The first official day of summer is June 20th 2012 and the past few days in New York City with temperatures over 80 degrees there will be no transition time just…. just nothing. I’m decided to start my Will Smith’s “Summertime” dance remix now. I’m doing it with small doses of pastels and neons, avoiding head-to-toe floral prints like it was the plague, overloading on the bangles so they feel like weights, rocking short like the boys, maxi skirts dragging like I’m walking the red carpet, and spikes to keep the bad ones three feet away. Those are just a few of my favorite things. Cue the music!
