BTS Bellevue Collection

September 25, 2016

The Bellevue Collection is made up of three parts: Bellevue Square, Lincoln Square, and Bellevue Place. Bellevue Square has a bunch of great stores including  Nordstrom, Free People, Intermix, Zara, Anthropologie , Uniqlo,…. see a full list here.   Bellevue Collection creates both a  fashion forecasting lookbook and magazine which I got to style for Fall 2016. We shot this is the middle of July when fall fashion hasn’t official arrived and everything was on summer markdown. I spent five full days in the mall pulling for this shoot.

After the merch was shot I got to head back to the mall and return everything I had borrowed which took about 8 hours. I didn’t take a picture but next time I will. What a sight to see. The Bellevue Collection hired a moving company to move all the merch. A highlight in my line of work. I am usually the one hauling clothes around. I even had an empty store in the mall as a resting stop to hold my gear. Thank You, Bellevue Collection!

BTS Aspen Sojourner Magazine

August 25, 2016

Ever heard of Aspen Sojourner magazine? Unless you have been to Aspen the answer will likely be no. Well neither did I until I was asked to style a shoot . Since I had never been to Aspen and it’s always fun to check out a new city I was pumped to see what the Aspen fashion scene had to offer. Aspen was pretty fun, the weather was great and the entire city was walkable! Lots of cute restaurants and friendly sales people for such high end shopping.

Unfortunately there were a couple of looks that were scrapped from this fashion story. This was for a mid-summer issue and I was struggling to make the most out of what I had.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas commercial

August 12, 2016

New work for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority! This national commercial was filmed over the span of two days. 9 talent, 36 wardrobe changes in one day, plus forty extra’s. Getting to style a What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas commercial was so fun for me. Mostly because it is the ultimate Iconic Vegas experience, and I got to be a part of help create it. Directed by Arturo Pereyra Key MUA: Song Lopez & Krystal Randall

Now the crew helped me get threw this one. The boys on set became my life-line and I will forever be grateful for Dane, Buck, and Matt who had me laughing, and smiling for the 30 hours we spent together. I think they felt sorry for me. I had two assistants one that lost my Amex, and the other that was breaking up with her boyfriend. We never had a home base and moved locations multiple times a day. In my stylist world, this was not an easy job for me. Below are some BTS photo’s of a what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas commercial!

This was a proposal I had to create for each scene in the shoot. We didn't end up shooting in this location but wanted to give you an idea on how much pre-work styling involves

Amish Inspired Fashion Editorial

August 6, 2015

I am having a #TBT moment. I was going threw old photos and discovered this Amish inspired fashion editorial I styled. This was a pretty fun day shooting, especially because the weather was nice. I tried to stay true to the amish influence of simpliness, but at the same time update the looks with modern influence.

I learned that this was going to be shot in black & white on the day of. I wish you could see the color palette of this dress. It was black and white with dull browns and greens. It fit perfectly with my Amish fashion story. I asked the photographer months, ok maybe almost 2 years later if I could have this image in color but I missed my window.

I made sure to style the models in matching shoes, and white collared shirts to really embody how the Amish dress. I was quite surprised how many stlyish white collared button up shirts I found, with different collars and feminine touches. It reminded me how classic and stylish a crisp white shirt can be. I purchased the Amish bonnets off of eBay.

The location seemed perfect for this Amish inspired fashion editorial. We were by the water, a lighthouse, water, old homes. The only big thing we were missing were a horse & carriage or maybe some farm animals. I have never been to Amish country so in all honestly I have no idea what was missing.

I have some new work to share from a shoot I styled in La Petite Magazine issue 16!

 Little Nomad story

Let me introduce you to Sydney. This little lady was quite the professional. I was beyond impressed with her modeling skills & set etiquette. Oh and it didn’t hurt that I fell in love with her mom that day either!

For styling I went between a navajo and boho vibe to create this Little Nomad kids fashion story. I love when parents dress their kids boho style!

This story was shot in Seattle by photographer Elke Van de Velde. Originally this was going to be shot outside but since the rain would not let up, it turned into a in studio shoot instead.

The hair and makeup artist Renee’ Majour was amazing. As you can see the hair in this shoot changed a lot and with such little time Renee’ was dishing it out.

I can’t forgot Art Director Tracy Madison  for creating this beautiful spread.
