Here in Chicago, it’s a bitter pill to swallow that cold weather is here to stay. With that in mind, I ‘suited up’ yesterday for some street-style hunting on Michigan Avenue. Although I only photographed Daemon, he was well worth the effort. If only everyone knew that staying warm doesn’t require a puffy coat – just layer smart with a wool coat.
Great minds think alike. While shooting at New York Fashion Week I was thrilled to see this skirt from Junya Watanabe Spring 2013, which was clearly one of his greatest collections in recent memory. I own the black version of this skirt and it’s one of my favorite pieces. Luckily I nabbed it during an end-of-season sale, and you can see it in this post.
Ahhhhhh, it’s good to be back. Sorry for the extended hiatus. I’ve had a lot going on, to say the least. I usually keep an iron wall between my blog and my personal life, but I do want to share why I’ve been absent from updating. I feel like I owe an explanation to my readers.
Over the past four months I’ve been through significant life changes. I switched jobs in July, went through a breakup in August, moved apartments in September and had a dramatically increased workload in October. During that timeframe I also managed four trips to New York for my collaboration with T.J.Maxx and attended New York Fashion Week.
As an adult with [gasp!] responsibilities, I’ve had to focus my limited time and energy on my social media consulting, to the exclusion of the artistry of my photography. Things have finally calmed down to the point where I can once again do what I love.
Thank you for continuing to read my blog.
