I thought about it and couldn't come up with a single good way to transition from yesterday's blog post to today's. As much as I miss my sweet Monkeycat, I know that the show must go on. :( Thank you all so much for your condolences. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your stories and thoughts. It means so much to me. ♥
Today's post is all about some work I did for the fall fashion issue of Sync. The chief photographer, Arshia Khan, and the art director, Stacy Bowers, decided on a Mad Men themed shoot for the spread and asked if I'd like to participate in the planning. It was unlike anything I had done with Sync before (or any other publication, for that matter), and I jumped at the opportunity. I helped with booking the models, styling the looks, and planning the scenes and locations. They even shot a few of the looks in my house!
I also have a separate article in the same issue about how to wear white after Labor Day. I styled one of my old etsy models, Katy Tipton (maybe you remember her?), in white denim and gave tips on how to transition white clothing for fall.
P.S. I feel like I have to say this since my name is on the article: I did not write or know anything about the title of the post-Labor Day article "No More White Flight" before seeing it in print. I don't usually write my own headlines, but I realize now that I need to start. I assume the author didn't consider the racial undertones of the phrase "white flight", but for me, I can hardly glance at the article without thinking about all the negative connotations. I have no hard feelings towards the person that wrote it, I just needed to get on my soapbox in some kind of public arena. Thanks.
