styling things + traveling places

CLARK GRIFFITHS…THIS IS YOUR LIFE (WITH ME…):

Had the pleasure of shooting with Clark Griffiths over the past few months on various things around Florida.  Mostly this consists of me saying, ‘Clark!  What about this?! No wait, what about that?!’ To which he always replies, ‘Yeah, that’s cool!’ (You see, he and I have a very complicated communication process).

Here’s to many more, and thank you for not thinking that I am a loony bird as I run around you at the speed of sound holding 5 swim rings, various people’s shoes and those infamous blue ikea bags full of who knows what!

VI-Nice

Project I worked on for the USVI with Eric Zucker of Tell-Tale Pictures.  

3 islands, 10 days, ghosts at a few hotels (I swear), lost flip flops in the sugar cane due to sticky mud, always a blast with Eric and his crew.

Found: Over 4 years ago I had a random conversation with someone on set about my intermittent collages. I showed him a photo of this one. For the life of me I can’t remember what shoot we were on, where we were, or even what he looked like. All I remember is that he was a very nice person, was sad about losing his father and this unfinished collage hit home. Life got in my way and I forgot about sending it. 3 days ago he emailed saying he was passing through town on work and needed help with local miami artists….and also he jokingly said he never received the collage. I still don’t remember the details (embarrassing), but am touched and sending him this unfinished collage, FINALLY.  (at 1111 Lincoln Road)

Dear Tumblr, It’s been too long.  And to be quite honest, it has been an interesting, loving, sad, hard journey lately, so I’ll bring you back with this one…

The laziest of bloggers,

Sarah Richardson is a HOOT!

So much fun meeting, chatting & being on set with Sarah. Watching her style like there was no tomorrow for her new fabric collection launch with Kravet fabrics was very cool.
Who knew we could hang curtains from nothing! (Or in my poor assistant’s case, make a 9’ bar magically grow to 15’. We love you gaff tape and random electrical conduit bar!  We love you!!)

Billy Reid & Jason McDonald

Chill, fun & full day always with Jason and crew for Billy’s new collection.

(Laughed, moved things, watched mens move stuffs, became obsessed with the women’s oxford shoes & men’s coats, learned about tea tree toothpicks, freaked out after learning the house was haunted, watched Billy & his team put their looks together, moved things around with Sarah in the prop van, laughed more, hugs all around, day done). 

Kate Spade:  
Robotic looking day with Dylan Griffin shooting some last minute holiday stuffs for Kate Spade.  I ate too many pastries.  They were quite good.

Creepin on @Foundproduction

Or affectionately known as:  ’Cristin doing things.’

She’s my most favorite producer who can multi-task like nobody’s business, always looks cool while doing it, carry 3 of my ikea baaags at once for me, and will figure out what am asking her while I have 10 swedish fish jammed in my mouth at 9:45 in the morning.

This was my week with Cristin.  She’s the best.

Agent Tina Latonero

Fashion stylist by day…CLEARLY undercover agent 24/7.  Her spy skills in heels…bar none.  Plus she can pin like nobody’s business.

(I love my shoes, thank you).

One more reason why I love #miami: Part IV
When running daily errands, one never knows who you will meet, what you will see.  I love you Ms. Dingwell.

Two Reasons Why I Love Miami

Summer, So Far.

People Magazine with Perry and Rain

Rain, sun, rain, move things, blow up swim things.

Shoot, cover things, shoot shoot, clean pool, wait, laugh, shoot shoot.

Rain could not stop us.  Always a fun day with Perry Hagopian.
