string of heart

One of the many perks of working at WORN is getting to be involved in a slew of photoshoots before each new issue. Another perk is being able to write about things that I genuinely want to write about, as well as things that are quite personal. When these two perks combined on Tuesday afternoon in a suite at the Gladstone Hotel, I thought my heart would never get back to a moderate rhythm. The photoshoot was for an article I am currently writing for Issue 13 of WORN. These are some photographs taken by Peter Wornette during the shoot. It's quite an unnerving feeling being the model, and not knowing what the shots looked like, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed (well at least not by the lovely setting and dress, my expression might be another story).

Down in the Valley

This is some of the film from my trip to Tennessee. We drove through Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and finally landed ourselves in Manchester TN for Bonnaroo. It was shockingly hot and dusty, which certainly didn't make for much choice outfit wise (and the clothes that I did end up wearing need a thorough cleaning post Manchester). Despite the blaring heat and minimal shade at the festival, the music was definitely worth the battle we put our bodies through. On the last day I got to see The Head and the Heart (which I must admit I teared up after one note during Rivers and Roads), Aunt Martha, John Waters and Beirut, which certainly made for a wonderfully packed day. Other highlights for me included Wanda Jackson (she was so adorable and told a story about dating Elvis) and of course, Mumford and Sons.

Viens Petite Fille dans Mon Worn: Behind the Scenes

These photos are some silly behind the scenes fun we had at a video shoot I'm directing for WORN. I was really excited to debut my new glasses on our model LeeAnna, they were the perfect little touch, and she looked so charming. After the shoot had wrapped, Solange and I took some photos blowing bubbles and running around with balloons, and they were too adorable to resist sharing. I really should be editing right now, but I can't seem to focus on anything but Tennessee.

all I have to do is dream

With my trip to Tennessee under a week away I've begun making imaginary outfits that will (hopefully) somehow translate into the real world using items from my own wardrobe. But if some generous soul would like to lend me the following pieces that would be nice, too.
