Modafly Review

I am obsessed with high waisted jeans. I started wearing them a few years ago before they became trendy and I've been through A LOT of pairs. I started with the American Apparel easy jeans but they didn't last long for me wearing them everyday. They became faded and started falling apart. Then I found Top Shop Joni Moto High Waist jeans and they have been my favorite ever since! Only problem is they are $78 retail and I go through a pair a season. I started looking on Ebay for reduced prices and found Modafly. They sell mostly Topshop and Asos and other on trend clothing. I've been buying my Joni jeans from them and you can get them at a fraction of the price, about $40! So worth it if you are like me and wear them a lot, especially in the fall and winter. You are welcome!

City Center Vintage Fashion Show 2014

Hello! I am just getting around to sharing these photos from the City Center Era-Jumping Vintage Fashion Show that I directed back in June of 2014 in Milwaukee, WI. This was an amazing event with an even better team, enthusiastic models and a wonderful message to celebrate 100 years of the City Center building downtown Milwaukee. Swing dancing in the streets, craft cocktails and of course I was able to coordinate this wonderful show among the skyline of downtown Milwaukee with the help of Bolted Vintage, Brown Cow Vintage, Sunshine Acid Vintage and my line So Passé Vintage

Belly Dancer

I photographed a lovely subject last month and wanted to share the results. Mrinal does belly dance so she brought her outfit and we had some fun with posing. These were all taken at Alverno College in Milwaukee. Super fun! Booking portrait sessions now.

Going back a few months, I did a monochrome inspired test shoot. Here are the results. Minimal yet edgy. Check out some vintage black and white pieces here for inspiration in recreating similar looks.
