Ask T: How Do You Get the Clothes for Magazine Pictures?

  Time for another round of "Ask T"! This is not so much a styling question as it is a stylist question: Hi Tamia, I really like your work in A-Line magazine!  I've always wondered how you get the clothes for photo shoots. Do you have to buy a bunch of stuff? If so, who pays for it and where do you keep it? ~K Hi K, I'm freelance, so I usually pitch an idea or concept for a shoot,...

Zbornak Ztyle

I don't remember the first time I saw an episode of Golden Girls, but I clearly remember sitting on my parents' bed, trying not to laugh at a raunchy joke the sharp-tongued Dorothy Zbornak made at the expense of one Ms. Blanche Devereaux. I stifled the laugh because I knew I wasn't supposed to "get" the joke, but I did. I always got Dorothy's jokes, 'cause she was a smart-ass like me. Since Golden Girls was...

Tumblr Tuesday: Hipster Muppets and Blue Elephants

I don't know where this oceanfront villa is, but I know I want to go to there; I love this photo, but my cat looks at me like I'm crazy when I try to pose like that; What's not to love about a hipster muppet that looks like it stepped out of a Fiona Apple video?; Gold-tipped drusy quartz seems sophisticated and just mystical enough; Elephants and flamingos have unexpectedly become two of my favorite...

The Red Skirt Diaries

I'm still working on adding color to my wardrobe, and right now I seem to be obsessed with bright bottoms like this red skirt and those green jeans. I'm pretty proud of myself for (mostly) sticking to my palette! H&M sweater; Forever21 skirt & earrings; Jessica Simpson Boots; eight sixty striped top. Who says I'm not a mallrat? Sometimes I have to laugh at myself, because anyone who's ever taken self-portraits in public knows it can be...

Tumblr Tuesday: Coogi Art and Lacy Boots

Coogi art--yes, art made from old Coogi sweaters--seems like a good way to make the most of an, um, unfortunate situation; Mirrored walls always remind me of my childhood home; Lace ankle boots seem delicate and fierce at the same time; I'm slightly obsessed with the way perfume atomizers make even the messiest vanities (ahem, MINE) seem sophisticated; I love that this editorial recalls the days when Linda Evangelista's ever-changing hair color was front page...

They Shoot Stylists, Don’t They?

Another day, another photo shoot! These images are from the A-Line shoot I styled for the January issue, with the lovely Sheila Gray as the model. You'd never know she has a teenage daughter--she came out of the dressing room in jeans and socks and looked like a teenager herself! Snappin' away at The American Can Factory The photographer for the shoot was Gina of Kiwi Street Studios, one of those multi-talented creative types who does it...

Ms. Green Jeans

I've wanted a pair of bright green pants forever, and the after-Christmas sales seemed like just the time to buy a pair. Gap pants; Alexander Wang blazer; Old Navy tee; vintage necklace; DKNY heels Why green in particular? No idea, except that I like the way the color pops in a not-so-in-your-face way (as compared to, say, red) when paired with black and white. Hey, at least they're not gray!...
