I know that this is against the blogosphere rules; making excuses for your lack of social media presence, BUT I have a good excuse! Last March we added a little guy to our family (we’re over the moon), which basically took whatever free time I may have had to do anything online with my website or blog. Having two kids under three and working in the world of advertising as a wardrobe stylist is no joke. I’m making it happen, but sadly this asset of my business has become back burner. With that said, I have the lofty goal to redo my website this winter and share new awesomeness. I’m not making any promises because you know, life, but I’d love to make it happen!
I had a lot of fun spending time with a family who lived/worked on a dairy farm in Ohio. I have a whole new appreciation of what it takes to be a dairy farmer. They truly are some of the hardest working individuals out there. Here are some images from the Borden campaign where I did the wardrobe styling. Photography by LA based photographer, Diana Zalucky.
Here’s a new Sheetz commercial where I did the wardrobe styling. I was requested by the agency to duplicate two looks taken from an old Free People lookbook. This seemed simple at first glance. All I needed to do was to go into the 5 Free People locations across the city and look for these items, but of course, nothing is ever that easy. I quickly learned that the images were taken from a previous season and only a couple of the pieces were available in store. I also knew that you never want to be married to one look and not present other options in case the looks didn’t come alive on the talent as the agency originally hoped. This could be due to fit issues or the fact that sometimes, even trained actors, can’t make an outfit look convincing as if something they’d actually wear.
In the end the scavenger hunt was a success. I found a number of items that were near replicas of the original Free People tears in a number of sizes, and other options in case the client changed their minds once the saw it in person. This project is just another great example of making sure you shop for more than what was originally asked of you.
Thank you MK Films for having me on board!
Loved, loved, loved, working on this advertisement for my favorite client for the back cover of Domino Magazine’s January issue. I worked on, as usual, the wardrobe, while Melissa Elias propped the image. The image was photographed by Jennifer Marx and art directed by LON senior art director, Melissa Brower.
My life is now complete! I have styled a SLIM JIM! This project was a little out of the norm for me, which made it extra fun to work on. I got to do things like make 8 cheese balls, turn a Slim Jim into a turkey, make delicious seasonal beverages, and make a votive out of some sticks, glue and plastic all thanks to a product we all love (at least in college), SOLO cups. The video came out really cute. It feels a bit Wes Anderson with hints of the Napoleon Dynamite rolling credits. A big thanks to director Morgan Anderson for having me on board and the agency Zocalo Group. Link to video below, which appeared on Instagram.
