I always used to dress up for shoot days but with the studio we shoot our collections in being virtually next door from my place, I now go for a more laidback look now for shoots, this the shorts, wedge heels and basic tanktop with a blazer. I used to have an aversion for wedged shoes since I thought they made my feet look like boats (also the reason why i avoid Crocs and will never wear a pair) but this pair worked out pretty well. I reckon it would be a fabulous solution to my beach dilemma and my curved feet which makes it impossible and intolerable to wear flats. (I had the blisters to prove them!)
Anyway, as I mentioned in the last blog, the new collection will be called “HEROINE CHIC” which pays tribute to goddesses and powerful divas who have defined an entirely new female archetype- that of being a glam warrior goddess. Expect tons of draping, asymmetry, shoulder emphasis, sparkle and revelry for this new collection! I am so excited to launch it! Visit GLITTERATI and wait for it as it will come VERY VERY SOON!
As always, a shoot is not a shoot without the classic JL and Nina dopelganger syndrome. There have been over two dozen times that I’ve metup with Nina for nights or days out and end up wearing the exact same thing she is without even planning/ talking about it! It’s crazy really and that was the case as well in our first ever shoot last November 2008. Check out the last photo to see just how in sync our minds are when it comes to outfit picking.
Sorry for lack of updates! I have yet to check out and reply to your posts in style gallery and I am so excited. I’ve been pretty busy the past week (my working hours are from 11 AM until 5 AM!) so I haven’t really had the chance to get my daily dose of your stylista files! xx
