Went into A-list Salon in the pearl district (nw 13th + Hoyt) this past weekend for a photoshoot "Rock-a-billy Chistmas" The lovely miss kristina santos was the amazing stylist who worked this fabulous retro updo on me. She did an excellent job. These are some fun personal shots of me and kristina after the work was over and the mimosas came out. Can't wait to see the results of this shoot. I was very excited to be a part of this experience. It was an early morning and a long day and yet totally worth it.
Love this chick to pieces...our history together has gone way back to the day i first met her in the dance studio...we've both undergone so many tranformations: hair color / extensions / boyfriends / salons / dance companies. She stuns me with her awesomeness... over the past 5 years shes gone from an inexperienced red headed dancer working and living in the suburbs to an incredible woman working and living downtown with her very own modern dance company ( Lyrik ) and oh yes did i mention she is engaged to an uber talented photographer, Alleh Lindquist. Such a stunner of a guy! Congratulations to the two of them.
Oh yes and guess who Kristina hired for her personal hairdresser for next summer's wedding? oh yes...that would be me. And i will be looking forward to it until it comes.
Last week headed over to the sister's house for a round of pumpkin carving, hot homemade chicken chili, and a hard cider party. So fun getting together with the couple of us... especially that it happened to be the first real rainy rainy fall day and all we all wanted to do was get cozy, warm up, and play.
I love love loved my outfit... for some reason this just felt totally and completely ME. Not to mention i felt like my legs looked killer in these short shorts and stilettos. sexy. Some times i get into the mode of trying to dress like my ittle sister Grace (cosmopolitangem.blogpot.com) As you see above she has this certain cute, feminine, fashionista vibe...a look i adore on her. A look i try to vibe off of.. but when i where what she would wear i feel so totally out of my skin. Gotta remember to use her as inspiration but gotta stay true to me. Sexy, rocker, hipster... hell i'd wanna do me!
