Waaaay back in February I met up with Atlanta photographer Jason Travis to take outfit photos for a series he was doing with a few fashion websites... Time passed and I had kinda forgotten about it and then in May they were finally posted!! I really like how they turned out and thought I'd share some of it here:

How would you describe your style?
Edgy girliness meets pop pin up with a dash of cute culture. My wardrobe mostly consists of bold jeweltones, leopard print, statement jewelry, unique bags or shoes, punky jackets, party dresses, bustier tops, cute accessories with animal faces or bows and lots of gaudy glitter and rhinestones.
Main design influence?
I’m really inspired by pin up looks from 1940s and 50s, valley girls and punky looks from the 1980s and Tokyo street fashion. It’s a weird combo, but it feels really natural to me when I mix it all together. My favorite style muses are Dita Von Teese, Cyndi Lauper, Betsey Johnson and Katy Perry. The movie Earth Girls are Easy (1988) was a big fashion inspiration growing up too – its a great example of the kind of stuff that I love and Julie Brown looks fabulous in it.

I also did an interview around this time for KC's blog Ric Rac Heart Attack and it was posted in May too! Here is a little snippet from the interview:
1. What is a typical day for you?
I run a lot of errands outside the house to keep from going stir crazy, answer emails, work on blog posts or freelance projects and in the evening I try to turn off the computer and focus on relaxing with my boyfriend, friends or family.
2.Where are you currently grabbing you inspiration for design and fashion from?
Pinterest! I loooove pinterest. My computer loves it too because I'm no longer saving inspiration photos on my hard drive and clogging it up. ;)
3. How do you manage to keep an organized schedule as your own boss? are there any tools you utilize to help?
4. What do you do to unwind?
I love going window shopping, exercising and dancing, going on adventures with my boyfriend and friends, taking photos and traveling. If I don't do those things I go crazy!!
