brooklyn days // december, 2013

some of my favorite individual shots from our GOOD STYLE VALENTINE look book.

BROOKLYN FLEA // december, 2013.

amazing. go and be enchanted and eat amazing food.

i was lucky enough to catch COURTNEY MARIE ANDREWS open for DAMIEN JURADO last thursday night. i’m still in awe.

i walked into the bar, it was crowded, dark and hot as hell. i couldn’t see the stage or anyone on it, so i thought the music i was hearing was coming from a recording in between sets. suddenly the crowd parted, ever so slightly, and i could see a blonde angel strumming a guitar. her voice feels like something my mother would have heard in her teenage years and at the same time it was entirely refreshing. this must be what “new old fashioned way” means.

this song was one of my favorites. enjoy.

some behind the scenes of our recent GOOD STYLE SHOP shoot.

girls girls girls, fun fun fun.

i think i’ve asked carson five times now… “should we just elope?”

he replies, “anything you want, love” which is f-ing awesome but not very helpful.

part of me wants to run, anywhere, vegas, LA, the moon… ANYWHERE with him and seal the deal. however, what makes me & carson, me & carson is how much we love our friends and family.

so i’m learning how to plan a wedding. i’m taking advice from anyone who has done it before: DO IT YOUR WAY. KEEP IT SIMPLE. SET BOUNDARIES.

and so i’m trying to stay positive and inspired and remember all the little moments in between the “yes” and the “i do”. these are some photos/pieces i used for our save the date, it was actually painless and fun to make.

what is this world i live in now?

brookyln’s streets // december 2013.

i know the galleries and museums of new york are filled with talent and amazement, but nothing gets me like graffiti growing like vines on the side of a factory and words forming, brick by brick, making poems on the street.
