Playing dress up for a day, I'm sure, is every girl's dream. I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with the amazing dress shop here in Phoenix, called Cleo and Clementine. There is something about Cleo and Clementine's designs, that instantly transforms you. You want to stand in front of a mirror and twirl like your five year old self, dreaming of the day she grows up. Or you want to walk down the street, strutting your fiercest cat walk, because you know you're a woman with high heels and high standards. I never wanted to slip out from underneath the tulle and silk concoction. I felt like maybe, I'd loose my super powers, or my femininity. So, I was more than OK going grocery shopping for bananas, or reading a book in the bath tub, all while wearing it. Because, suddenly, I wanted to live on the glossy pages of a fashion editorial of real life mundane moments juxtaposed with a heavy dose of dramatic glamour.
My day at Cleo and Clementine was such an incredible day. Being around like-minded individuals who have a passion to create and to capture is simply inspiring. I'm so thankful to have been beautified by the talented Stephanie Neiheisel. (Yes she introduced me to minx lashes.) Model alongside the beautiful bloggers, Sakura Considine and Megan Stiles. Be photographed by the incredible Brad Olson (he is brilliant with finding light). And wear the incredible hand sewn creations of Monique Sandoval of Cleo and Clementine.
