Style // Back to Basics

There are times when I get so caught up in the newest-latest-greatest spin that I go a little overboard with the shopping. It’s especially easy to do during the holidays, but once the new year (and budgeting resolutions) hit, it becomes obvious that more isn’t always more, and quality far outweighs quantity. No doubt there will always be gaps to fill, but in reality, I have pretty much everything I need in the wardrobe department. I’ll...

Work // Model Brides + Hot Docs

Double duty this time: The January issue of Cincinnati Magazine and the Winter issue of Cincinnati Wedding are currently on newsstands! This was my first “full” issue of Cincinnati Wedding, and though it only comes out three times a year, the creation process gets squeezed in between producing content for the monthly magazine so there’s a fair amount of overlap when scouting, scheduling shoots, etc. Basically, ish gets hectic. We photographed several Cincinnati Ballet dancers for...

Lessons From Yoncé

On Friday the 13th, Beyoncé released a secret “visual album” complete with 14 songs and 17 videos, canceling out pretty much everything else that thought it mattered in the world of pop culture. To be clear, I am not a Beyoncé stan--there are several of her songs that I actively dislike, and I feel zero connection to her public persona--but as a woman of color trying to find her way in a creative industry, there’s...

Muse-ings // Typographic Paper and Bullet Stools

1 / I’ve been obsessed with this photo/these shoes/those pants for months now.  Where’s the slightly-more-affordable knockoff? 2/ I love the stark yet playful contrast of this typography wrapping paper. 3/ I’m not a violent person (mostly), but these stools that look like bullet shells are nothing short of brilliant. 4/ I like to think the sleek, sophisticated lines of The Row’s new fragrances are what I’d choose for my own perfume line. You know,...

Shop Around // Hi-Bred

One of the shops I frequent when I’m scouting for work or hunting for vintage for my own collection is Hi-Bred in Walnut Hills. Owner Shawna Maria Guip (remember we profiled for the September issue of Cincinnati Magazine?) has filled her shop to the brim with vintage and secondhand clothes, accessories, and home goods, all apparently selected to trigger my Things I Must Have sensors. There's plenty of manly menswear and cute things for home ...

Current Obsession // Das (Patterned) Boot

Let it be known that I love a good bootie--and a good booty (#realtalk). Ankle boots always seem to provide just the right touch of downtown chic to any look, and right now I’m obsessed with these patterned boots. Both pairs are relatively comfortable, and are juuuuust dressy enough to make it seem like I tried to look nice on days when it takes ALL of my effort just to put on pants. The trend has...

Shop // Local Gift Guide

I’m a big fan of shopping small local retailers, and I work with these businesses so much that I consider many of the business owners friends. However, I’m also a fan of sitting at home on the couch and shopping online--I mean, that’s just common sense. For a while it seemed as if never the ‘twain should meet, but many Cincinnati-area retailers have gotten hip to the e-commerce game and offer a variety of their...
