As a fashion assistant at the veritable fashion bible, Women’s Wear Daily, each day was challenging and new. Whether it was doing arduous research and pulling inspiration from a bevy of sources, or running around like crazy with a lint roller, every moment was precious. I want to start to share old memories, since a lot of times it was my duty (and privilege!) to document the behind the scenes at cover shoots and fashion spreads. The pictures below were taken for an Ashlee Simpson & Melrose Place story. Ashlee was the chillest/funniest of all the actresses, I have to divulge.
Fooling around with all the jewelry! Good gracious! I’m missing that tan right about now.
I spy Tom Binns! And maybe a bit of vintage Givenchy …
Pssssst. Some very cutesy options from Stella McCartney, Preen, Jasmine Shokrian, and Phillip Lim amongst others.
Stylist/Fashion Editor/Mentor extraordinaire Leila Baboi showing Ashlee (in Stella) some options.
Hope you enjoyed this ‘lil peek behind the scenes. More to come – if you so wish.
I can’t resist a good underwater photograph. I seriously swoon and melt and get all butterfly stomachy when I see it done perfectly.

Last night at the First Kiss afterparty (more on that later!) I was chatting with the stylish man behind Hard Liquor Soft Soles about vintage fashion editorials, and Self Service happened to come up. A force to be reckoned with, Self Service of yore combined this very visceral and steamy appeal with incredibly on point styling. Now, I’m still a fan of the project and admittedly have the recent ones in my magazine collection. I’m also a fan of polaroids but feel like they are very one-note. So here’s an ode to a lovely story, photographed by sir Mario Testino and styled brilliantly by Jane How.

Hey dudes and dudettes (I love using the word dudettes!),
The Party Dress is now more social. What does that mean? In plain English, now we can all chit chat and gossip and discuss very important topics on The Party Dress Facebook Page. Not only will you know about the newest posts, but I’ll ask mundane questions and you’ll reply back with snarky answers. Or so I hope.
So just do it.

Via FashionCopious. I adore campy. I love dressing up like an ironic Suzy Homemaker. Therefore this editorial rubs me the right way. Off to purchase pedal pushers and a pair of cat-eyes, like NOW.
I would like to go on this vacation. Greece? Turkey? Mykonos? Portugal? Meet me there. With bleach blonde hair. And ruffly shorts.
