Happy Monday! I’m a little slow this morning, I spent all day yesterday on a photo shoot for our up coming website and then stayed up all night looking through the awesome pics. Since our photographer is so passionate about cool projects, he had the pics to me within hours of the shoot. Such a pro!I

It wasn’t your normal fashion shoot. The location was amazing, our models were amazing and our photographer Damion Lloyd was (IS) amazing!

When I had told him about my idea a few weeks ago, he thought it was crazy-cool. He said, “Julie, I’m going to show up with some cool gels, an open mind and I’ll be ready to feed off your energy.” And that’s exactly what happened, we were all on a creative high, to say the least! I love working with creatively open people and Damion Lloyd is one of my faves!!!

I’m so excited to share the pics, but I have to wait a few more weeks until our site launches. Until then, you can get a hint of the vibe and a glimpse of Damion’s personality in the above pic. And just know, we’re finally making progress on our web store.

I’m so blessed to have such awesome people in my life. I believe in divine appointment and Candace Magoski is Divine! (For reals, that’s her Burningman name.) She allowed us to shoot in her cool studio and as with Damion too, our roots go deep! Thanks to the both of them for living a passionately artistic life and for helping me achieve my creative goals. I’m forever grateful.

Support those who support you and forget about those who forget abut you. Plain and simple.

Have a great week, keep your dreams alive, and surround yourself with people who believe in you.

Guess Who?

Dannielynn Birkhead is the new face for Guess (the Kids division). Dannielynn  is the six year old daughter of the late Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith. Her mother died in 2007 from a drug overdose when Dannielynn was just a few months old. Ironically Anna Nicole Smith was a “Guess Girl” in the ’90s and helped launch the ad campaign.

Of course there’s tons of controversy over the decision whether to let the little girl model or not. But, in all honesty, as long as she doesn’t start dating 86-year- old men and doing drugs, I think she’ll be fine.

Good luck Dannielynn!

Runway Remorse

 

Victoria’s Secret’s yearly runway shows feature sexy, over-the-top styles with a borderline costume party vibe. This year model Karlie Kloss walked  the cat walk in a Native American headdress. Her leopard lingerie mixed with turquoise statement jewelry was an exotic scene. However, certain Native American groups were outraged, protesting and claiming that Victoria’s Secret is misrepresenting their culture.

The company has been apologizing profusely and has agreed to pull the look from their upcoming TV broadcast.

Ruth Hopkins, a columnist for Indian Country, said that “making a mockery of Native identity is unacceptable.”

“After years of patronage and loyalty to the Victoria’s Secret brand, I am repaid with the mean-spirited, disrespectful trivialization of my blood ancestry and the proud Native identity I work hard to instill in my children,” she wrote. “Well, I’ve got news for you, Victoria’s Secret. Consider yourself boycotted.”

Thoughts anyone?

Saturday’s Shoot

When Megan Crothers from Megan Jeanne Photography approached me to do a photo shoot for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique,  I had no idea the amount of talent that would surround me. I knew from our conversations that she would be a good fit, and when I finally met her in person, I was sold!  She came to pick up the clothes on Friday night. It was during Art Walk and the store was crazy, busy with patrons and 3 artists. I should have had the items set aside, but time had slipped away from me.

When Megan showed up, I could see the creative wheels in her mind spinning and she began to put together outfits. I knew from the styles that  she was pulling that she “got it”. Not only is she a stylist, but she builds her own stage sets and creates amazing backdrops as well.  Her fashion photography skills emulate a feeling that we strive to translate to our customers.

The first picture was taken in her attic where she hand strung fall leaves and hung them from the beams. I love her ideas, her eye and her personality. And just in time too! We’re getting closer to launching our on line store and Megan’s photography is one of the last pieces to completing our puzzle. I’d show you more shots, but you’ll have to wait until our site is up.

Thanks Megan! And thanks Rachael Barnett for being such a gracious and beautiful model.

“Once upon time, there were three bears and a model.” Hmmmm… you finish the rest of the story, I’m running late this morning. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
