August 2016:

The 1990’s came back in full fury in the sartorial season of Spring-Summer 2016! Choker necklaces, bandanas worn as chokers/headbands, washed denim, bell sleeves, prairie tops, off-shoulder looks, and shirtdresses. ALL BACK, baby. Complete with an intense fuchsia mouth thanks to Vice Lipstick in “Anarchy” by Urban Decay.

August 2015:

One of my first lessons in the hardships involved in outside modeling shoots. I used to be so insecure about having my picture taken by others. I’m still gradually learning to embrace my own looks, everything that makes me unique–flaw or asset.
