Work // Pants and Candy

Cincinnati Magazine fashion stylist

The November issue of Cincinnati Magazine is on newsstands! Check out what I’ve been working on:

Candy Crush

Fun facts:

  • I spent almost an hour picking out the prettiest pieces of candy from Jenco Brothers, all of which cost almost $40!
  • There’s a lot of direction involved in editorial styling–I made a diagram of a hand showing the nail artist exactly how to do the manicure, and visited the salon to pick out the colors beforehand.
  • Holding things doesn’t seem like a difficult task, but trust me, hand modeling is HARD! You have to hold your fingers in all sorts of unnatural positions while the photographer/art director/stylist is telling you to untuck your pinky or twist your palm a fraction of an inch toward the camera . Big props to editorial intern Baihley for being our hand model for the day!

Fancy Pants

Fun facts:

  • I pulled 13 pairs of pants, 12 tops, 7 pairs of shoes, and 14 accessories (jewelry, bags) from six different stores for this shoot. I always pull more than I’ll actually use–options are necessary, and backups are a must.
  • There’s a nice shout-out for this page on the cover!

You can get the November issue of Cincinnati Magazine on newsstands now!

      Yeah, they’re from Nordstrom of all places! Pretty reasonably priced, too.

    I guess I forgot you are from Cincinnati too! There aren’t many of us Cincinnati bloggers so when I saw this post on blog lovin’ it made me quite happy. I hope you got to indulge in that leftover candy 😉

      By the time we got finished playing around with everything no one wanted to actually eat the candy. Sadface.

    The issue looks awesome! You, Megan, Grace and Brittany did a great job. I’m glad I got to be part of the whole process!
