Last Thursday I was in New York for the launch of my limited edition shoe designs for Schutz! I have been so excited to see the shoes in person, pretty surreal to see them in 3D. Yes, they are ALL leopard...what can I say, at least its a consistent theme! Thank you to those who came out and shopped, those who bought my shoes helped the human rights and women's organization Because I am a Girl.
The pointy pump is my favorite pair!
So happy to be with Aimee and Shea again!! I am wearing Anine Bing jeans, a RRL belt, and blouse c/o Equipment!
In the Court Square in Charlottesville!
I came to Charlottesville for the Mockingbird Conference. I came to find Mockingbird through the Reverend John Zahl, who I first became acquainted with as a DJ through his fantastic cosmic disco mixes. DJ Jaz is absolutely a musical hero of mine and it was really special to meet the disco disciple himself in person. It's an odd story, but how I came to find Mockingbird speaks a lot to what Mockingbird aims to do itself, which is to connect the Gospel with contemporary culture in down-to-earth and sometimes very suprising ways. Definitely a fascinating read, regardless of your spiritual standing. Can't wait till the next conference!
The spread of disco records pictured above were very generously gifted to me by DJ JAZ himself. It's such a special memory to me now, sitting in the trunk of a rented car on a rainy night with my boyfriend and our favorite DJ, going through these cosmic gems and talking disco. Wow! Thank you JAZ, I hope I can repay your generosity some day very soon!
I wanted to share some shots I didn't post from my trip to San Miguel de Allende in July. Such wonderful memories!!
What a week!! I am so sorry I haven't been updating over the past few days. I got sick, I had pink eye, and the things keep piling up! Yeah, my boyfriend gave me his case of pink eye. If I am not looking directly at the camera in my next few posts you know why. The truth is ugly and gross!! Sorry guys. Sunglasses are saving my life right now. I'm actually headed to Charlottesville, Virginia for a conference tomorrow, hope I get to share some shots!
We did some touristy things this time too--the Natural History Museum was so much fun!
Romeo the long haired Chihuahua was my favorite thing I saw in New York. His dad was so proud to show him off! Haha...so cute.
When I said these were my favorite jeans, I wasn't kidding. I wore them 5 days out of 6. The cap toe pumps are from Schutz! I also got my new favorite pair of shoes from Schutz. More cap-toe perfection below.
Suede black and white cap toe ankle boots! That's what I've been dreaming of. I'll post more of these and of the Schutz opening soon :)
With my beloved Aimee before the Schutz opening <3 ;)
I finally met the Beckerman Bite Plate sisters!! We have been Instagram friends for so long, I feel like I've known them forever! I love the Beckerman family!!
One of the highlights of the trip was when I got to DJ the ASOS Rewardstyle party on Saturday night. Here I am with Leigh Lezark who DJed after me and Amber of Rewardstyle. So great to meet so many bloggers that night!! I will be posting a mix of what I played soon--keep your eyes peeled.
I got back from Brazil on Sunday morning, I have been so excited to share it with you! We were so lucky to be given such an incredible tour from the Schutz team. Everyone I met in Brazil was so fun and easy going! Can I move to Rio?? We spent our first two days in Sao Paulo, where we met many Brazilian bloggers and enjoyed the Schutz collection launch.
I was SO EXCITED to get to Rio, because I've really never been in the ocean. We arrived late at night, so when I opened my curtains in my hotel room the next day, I screamed when I saw the ocean. It is so much more beautiful than any picture.
Above, I am wearing an irridescent shirt that Cris Barros kindly gave me after we did a photoshoot for Elle Brazil in their store. So sweet! Worn with a Zara blazer, shorts from Coii, a Madewell belt, and Schutz shoes! I am obsessed with see-through shoes now...
This is the pool at the Fasano hotel in Rio. It overlooks the ocean!
Wearing a swimsuit given to me by Skinbiquini (everything they do is amazing, I am so glad to have discovered them in Brazil!)
Look out, here comes the Bikini man!
Schutz gave us the opportunity to design three shoes when we visited their factories. I can't wait to see them in person! Here is the sketch the designer I teamed up with did for a leopard motorcycle boot.
Visiting the factories with Aimee and Shea, being shown around by Alexandre Birman!
Kelly and Shea :)
I miss Brazil, I miss the fun girls I was hanging out with, and I miss the cheese bread! I can't wait to share more about the Schutz opening in New York on September 5th.
