Happy New Year 2012! (Idiosyncratic Fashionistas)

Advanced Style

This is another one of those great unpublished photos from New York that I’ve been hanging onto for the right moment. After reading Ari Cohen’s street-style blog Advanced Style for so long, it was a pleasure to finally meet the two Idiosyncratic Fashionistas in person at the IFB blogging conference in September.

The circles in Valerie’s earrings and necklace reminded me of the giant swirls used for time machines in movies like Austin Powers. How perfect for the first day of 2012. Happy New Year’s everyone!

Michael Kors x Amy Creyer Collaboration

I am so excited to share with you my latest corporate collaboration with the one and only American sportswear icon Michael Kors! This project has been in the works since early November, but because I had family in town for a whole week it threw the scheduling off. And that whole “full-time freelance” gig combined with 3:30 p.m. sunsets makes shooting street-style feasible only on weekends for me now. I just finished up shooting Sunday evening with Jena Gambaccini, and had the extraordinary pleasure of working with Andrea Kerbuski and Chelsea Lavin earlier in the day. I love how each of these girls were able to integrate Michael Kors designs seamlessly into their own unique styles.

This project is designed to promote Michael Kors’ Bag Alert, a fun interactive slide-show illustrating the way real everyday people rock Michael Kors handbags. Along with my friends Chelsea, Andrea, and Jena, I also photographed a few strangers who were already carrying Michael Kors bags. Make sure to check them out and please vote for me!
