Since Halloween was ages ago in Internet time and it’s now practically Christmas, I’m taking advantage of this day the week to post a ThrowBackThursday post and show off my kickass Skelotor-esqe Halloweekend makeup from aforementioned holiday.
*If the poorly-structured previous sentence made sense to you, then sweet, that’s probably why we’re still friends…#rambler
Huge thanks to Manja of Shining Faces for getting it and producing exactly what I had in mind. Complete with black glittery eye-sockets.
Dress by RVCA, photos by Rebeka.
And I’m all ready planning next year’s costume…

Love it when work things turn into friend things! Produced this shoot for a school assignment and got a good friend out of it.
Sierra is a big, tall ray of sunshine. Totally sporty but totally girly, too. As her Instagram bio reads: Skier. Model. Yogi. Surfer. Lover.
And a huge thanks to Kalyn for the hair magic and collaborative energy! I love working with you, my talented, gorgeous friend!
I’m loving the whole hair-chalking trend in a major way. Check out Skyler’s super sweet version! She posted a pic on Facebook and I liked it so much she agreed to let me take a few photos for the blog. Thanks, darlin’!
And then I proceeded to accidentally lock us out of the building where we had left all our things, including my phone. If you know me and my phone, then you understand my stress of not having it on my person AT ALL TIMES!!! (‘cuz I might miss something really important or Instagram or whatever. #addict). Anyway, we got rescued eventually, I got my phone back and three weeks later, here are the photos of Skyler and her pretty hair.
you. are. welcome.
hugs + kisses,
What’s up, chicklets! Here’s what I’ve been up to this past week or two (k, me and a crew of super helpful/talented/awesome friends):
The above are all from my mid-term project. The assignment was to coordinate and style a photoshoot (actually, two shoots, but more on that later) based around a plain white tee. Easy enough, right? riiiiiight…..Tons of work but totes worth it ’cause I got an A! Killing it, to the 2nd power!
I decided on the pastel color story since I’m love, love, loving all the Easter-egg pastels for Spring and because it is a major, MAAAAJOR (say it in a Rachel Zoe voice) trend right now AND the Man Repeller says pastels are the tits and pretty much, whatever she says is the final word. ‘Cause, you know, she’s like the fashion ruler of the world (in my book at least). So there ya have it, a cotton-candy colored editorial!
*In addition to the Easter Bunny and Peeps, I’d like to think unicorns had a hand in inspiring this shoot. In fact, they definitely were inspiration—–>Click here to visit Candy Mountain!
**Thanks to Sierra for being a lovely model and to Kalyn for the killer hair+makeup job AND photography (one-woman wonder). Y’all rock! Oh and thank you Becca for the use of your cake plates and kitchen chair! ;)
***K, one more thank you: To Z, for being the most understanding and patient 4 year old and putting up with Momma playing fashion dictator all day. Thanks for expertly stacking the cotton candy and eating most of it and then falling soundly asleep on the floor. <—–used unicorn plushie as pillow. #genuis
