Working Weekend

Even though I spent most of last weekend huddled over my computer working on the next issue of Style Sample and lamenting the neverending rain (it made me sleeeepyyy), I did manage to get out a bit on Friday evening. My new Nikkor 55-200 lens was waiting for me when I got home on Friday (woohoo!), so I hit Final Friday with Friendboy and tested it out a bit. Of course, my first subject was Beau the...

Captain’s Log: The future of design

Last week, I headed over to LPK (which is housed in a gorgeous historical building, by the way) for a talk called Memo from 2015: What the Future Wants from Designers. The event was sponsored by the Cincinnati AIGA and led by adorably baby-faced-but-apparently-brilliant LPK trend analyst Brian Meyers. Call me shallow (you'd be right), but I'm much more likely to listen to an analysis of future trends from someone who looks straight out of a...

Cincinnati Fashion Week wrap-up

The inaugural edition of Cincinnati Fashion Week ended on a high note last week, with a show for emerging designers at Suite at Blackfinn on Thursday and el grande finale (I like to mix French and Spanishβ€”I call it Sprench*) fashion show Friday evening at the Hyatt. I attended an AIGA event about the future of design on Thursday evening (possibly more on that later), but I arrived at the fashion show just in time to...

It's also the week of article submission deadlines for the upcoming issue of Style Sample, so posting will either be very heavy (if I manage to get my ish together), or very light (if I collapse into a quivering mass of nerves), depending...

So you think you can ____?

A while ago, I was talking to my brother about a manuscript he's been working on for years. As I tried to determine whether he was planning on snail-mailing an actual handwritten manuscript to a publishing house for consideration (people still do that?!), the same thought that pops up whenever I work on the magazine hit me: Don't wait for people to give you permission to do what you want to...

Photo shoot pictures!

I'm finally taking the time to post some of the images from the Stop Traffick Fashion photo shoot last month. This time, they're all of meeeeee! It's kind of weird seeing my ta-tas all up in the camera, and the last image is maddeningly similar to a photo of my mother from the 70's. However, I loved the t-shirt I wore--very soft material, well cut, and everything is 100% fair trade. Definitely a must-have. Here, kitty kitty This...
