the gap by Ira Glass

I love this inspiring little video featuring a snippet of Ira Glass' mega motivational interview from a few years ago. I'd say most creative types can probably relate to these words. Pushing through self doubt is tricky, but what's waiting on the other side is pretty stellar. I'll let you know if I ever make it there, but in the meantime work, work work... ♥

Lately I've been fortunate enough to work with Sadie in her new studio. Here are some outtakes from a few photoshoots recently, featuring her amazing vintage finds, seriously epic styling and me in front of the lens again. Check out her Etsy shop, SadieDeluxe if you're a vintage lover, I'd be willing to bet you'll find something wonderful.

High waisted mermaid swim bottoms exist, people. And here they are. These beauties are making me dream of summer already. And maybe an Ariel themed photoshoot at the beach? Available at Alicia Zenobia's etsy shop.

are those space pants?

Sadie Rose took this photo of me last week for her Etsy shop. She took the time to edit it to cosmic perfection, so I thought I'd share.  The striped train conductor-esque denim looked amazing and that is officially the first midriff I've worn since 1998. Cheers to trying scary new things, friends!

tintype photos from sundance film festival

Tintype photos are so very charming and full of magic. The texture and detail are incredible, especially considering the painstakingly tedious process of developing these pictures. Kudos to the uber talented Victoria Will for taking the time to create these images. I highly recommend checking out the entire slideshow featured on Esquire, including a stoic and haunting picture of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

boris and sasha

My neighbor/bff Caitlin is a truly great person. i'm humbled by her goodness and often have "what would Caitlin do" moments in stressful situations, and this usually diffuses my temper. she's a kind and giving soul with a soft spot for animals, and last year started caring for two twin feral kittens who lived in a vacant field near our neighborhood. they started out completely wild, skinny, terrified of humans, and very, very feisty. After a few months of love and nurturing, these wild things softened up and became more brave around people. Now they live with Caitlin and they're basically obsessed with her. They follow her everywhere. Meowing. Pouncing. Doing cat things. She can't even come over for a cup of tea without one of them staring at her through the window like a crazed stalker. Geez, cats. Calm down, would you? Anyway, I love a good rescue story and wanted to introduce these two misfits, Boris and Sasha. Besides, what's more adorable than matching cats?

throwback: my papa

 I just had to share these awesome pics of my dad in the 70s. The first one I believe is here in California, but the other two are from his travels. He loves to travel and has tons of photos from his time overseas. I cherish them all.

sadie in the sunset

Last week Sadie Rose (of SadieDeluxe) came over to model clothes for my upcoming etsy shop (!!!) and we ended up in the vineyard as the sun was setting. Let me tell you, the girl knows how to work it! It's incredibly easy taking gorgeous photos of her, minimal editing required for this doll face. What a dream. If you're looking for a model, I'm just saying... call Sadie.
