A couple of weeks ago I was in NYC for NYFW.  It was a whirlwind of appointments, exciting meetings(more on that later), shows and catching up with friends.  I didn't have much free time but I was able to fit in a quick photo shoot with super talented photographer and blogger Kat Harris. The weather that day was absolutely gorgeous so we decided to get some photos in the Meatpacking District and all along the High Line (one of my favorite places!) Happy Thursday!

ALL EYES ON...OLDE GOOD THINGS, CHELSEA, NYC

Exquisite detail on antique hardware
One of my favorite pieces...an antique street lamp.  Coincidentally, my former boss at Bergdorf Goodman was stopping by later in the afternoon to look at it for possible use in the windows!
A wide variety of gorgeous hardware

I'm always drawn to vintage photography.  There are so many stories told by these images through location, fashion and expression and I often wonder what each individuals story is...

One of my favorite places to visit in NYC is Olde Good Things.  It's a place I frequent to admire the gorgeous and eclectic pieces and to seek inspiration.  For over 15 years, this institution has been acquiring antique and architectural artifacts from many late nineteenth century and pre-depression buildings and making them available to clientele including decorators, set designers, window display artists, other antique dealers and the general public.  There are currently nine locations brimming with beautiful pieces, an extensive lighting collection and antique hardware beyond your wildest dreams.  

Not only does Olde Good Things house some of the most interesting antiques in the world, but it also helps serve others overseas with 1/3 of its profits(pretty amazing!).  Since 1977, they have directly supported two orphanages in Haiti.  Next time you're in New York City or Los Angeles, make sure to visit this store to purchase some truly spectacular pieces and help support a great cause!
    
Special thanks to Lauren and Joy for graciously letting me explore and photograph the location in Chelsea!

DOUBLE DECKER









{Dress}Chicwish, {Handbag}Saint Laurent, {Eye Wear}Asos

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my love of all things British.  While I have yet to go, I daydream of perusing the streets of London, visiting the colorful Piccadilly Circus, scouring for top notch vintage pieces at the flea market, visiting Buckingham Palace and admiring the beauty of Knotting Hill.
                    
A few weeks back, I took an alternate route through downtown on my way home and saw a double-decker red bus parked in a warehouse garage.  I immediately turned around and went to inquire about this unexpected discovery.  I was elated to find out I would be able to use this bus for a photo shoot and create a London-like atmosphere here.  If you live in Oklahoma or plan a visit here soon I would highly recommend booking a ride on the Cheyenne Bus! You can book it here for a variety of events.
                             
Special thanks to Oleg, Steve and Daniel for graciously lending the bus for this photo shoot!

BEHIND THE SCENES: DARLING MAGAZINE FALL ISSUE





I am obsessed with the Thom Browne frames at the bottom of the photo! They are such a great balance of femininity and masculinity. 

Vintage jewelry from my personal collection

Last month I had the opportunity to collaborate with the ever so lovely Darling Magazine for the fall issue.  Myself and Casey built the pencils out of 6 ft. pvc piping, styrofoam discs, sheet metal and paper cones.   It was such a pleasure working with a fantastic and talented team for this project! You can order your copy of the fall issue here.

CINEMATIC



A 1940's car randomly passed by which was a dream!



I picked up this 1940's Plastiflex clutch with a lucite pull at the New York City Flea Market a couple of years ago...it's one of my favorites

This tassel necklace from Mae's is such a timeless piece
I acquired the brass bracelet from Cotton City Antiques in Mobile, AL and the mixed media bracelet from Mae's.  I have such an affinity for interesting and bold pieces.

In honor of Circle Cinema's 85 year anniversary and recent renovations, I wanted to do a shoot and recreate images reminiscent of the 1940's (my favorite style decade).  Happy Friday!
