Bing! Pre-commercial Video

Jena and I [center] with our friends Nicole and Erin

In anticipation of next week’s release of the Bing commercial I made with my good friend Jena from ChiCityFashion, we both made mini-videos about our friends. Bing is promoting their new Facebook integration feature, which allows your friends’ Facebook likes to help you make decisions. Jena and I help each other make decisions all the time. 

From fun decisions, like which Proenza Schouler shoes to buy, to more serious decisions about the direction of our blogs, Jena and I help each other decide all the time. I know that you and your friends help each other make decisions constantly too. Bing is harnessing that social capital to help you make better decisions when searching on the internet.

I had a lot of fun making this video although I wish I could have uploaded my own song. Copyright issues aside, Pretty Lights is obviously the soundtrack to my life!

Wicker Park Fest: Izy

Why go for a pair of ruby red slippers when you can go for a pair of fire-engine red Dr. Martens?

Tasha & Jessica

Tasha & Jessica

Although I normally photograph people separately, these two seemed to be great friends and both were interesting in their own way. Tasha shows us that honeysuckle pink is indeed the color of 2011. Pantone’s color forecasting never fails to fascinate me, since I can actually see the results of their predictions on the streets.

Jessica is easy-going chic with clean minimal lines, tasteful accessories, and a brilliant sense of confidence. She truly caught my street-style eye.
