That`s only in these photos babes…cause otherwise I`m basically a girl with the personality of a dude. I`m fun ( I hope ?) and loud and sometimes unmannered. But that`s ok cause I am who I want to be and I`m pretty much happy with myself. ??
So how did I end up shooting this refined, ladylike edit? A few months ago this cool brand called Charles & Keith challenged me to style a few bags and pairs of shoes from their fall collection, for an online feature. Considering that every time I took a look on their website my eyes would pop out of my head, I didn`t think twice before saying a big loud yes.(well…before writing a big loud yes to be more specific ?). Only that they had something very specific in mind when they asked me to do this feature. They wanted to challenge me and push me into creating something a little different, so they`ve sent me some items that would really get me out of my comfort zone.
Of course I found the whole situation a bit scary at first and styling these pieces wasn`t easy, especially being this perfectionist fashion maniac that I am, but in the end it all paid off. Because even though I found this pair of shoes and bag to be the most challenging of all, surprise surprise, out of four editorials this was by far my favorite (hence the need to share it again). And it`s not only that it was my favorite out of all but I really love the end result and the look. That being said I`m so glad I accepted the challenge and proved to myself one more time than challenges can actually be fun.
Have a great weekend lovelies and don`t forget to take as many challenges as you can, cause great things could come out of them.
