I’ve always had a fascination with pin up culture (I was Bettie Page for Halloween no less than five years in a row) and of course anything rock n roll western, so merging the two in the studio with Marc Alt was a photoshoot dream. The inspiration for it all came from this epic repurposed gun holster designed and hand crafted by Chris West. Who needs a purse when you have a gun holster as an option? Paired with some of my very favorites from Planet Cowboy, Clare Bare, Shannon Noelke Metal Arts, Boho Lizzy & Manam.
Swing it, bunnies!

I always keep an extra outfit in the car when I’m visiting my dear friend Angela Izzo. There’s nothing like a casual Wednesday in Los Angeles, running errands all over the city, stopping for a glass of wine mid way through and musing for an impromptu photo shoot. This dreamy Hippie Shake body suit has yet to make it’s debut on stage because I haven’t found the right bottoms yet, but who needs pants, right? Dreamy shoots are Angela Izzo’s specialty and if you’re in the Los Angeles area you must check out her immersive photography workshop, GAZE, this Saturday, May 7th 2022.
Sweet hippie dreams, bunnies!

Her name is Rio and she dances in the sand
Rio, Brazil is undeniably one of my favorites cities I’ve been to. The lush green jungles, cocktails, white sand beaches, the music, and the seemingly innate ability for all women to dance. The kind of dancing that looks so nonchalant but the hips and feet move in the most incredible rhythm and direction. When I arrived at Ashley’s home in Las Vegas for one of our girls’ weekend/photo shoot adventuring trips, she had this vision of shooting the Rio sign at sunset. Obviously the only reasonable thing to wear was this two piece mesh tie-dye set from Adriana Sahar. Negroni in hand and an “ask for forgiveness, not permission” mindset, we managed to place ourselves in the best location for the magic of the Rio sign. Until I can make it back to Rio, Brazil, I’ll continue to dance on rooftops, and take photos in colorful carnival worthy clothing. Saúde!
“And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande”
