Back To Black

I unashamedly admit that I have a copious amount of nail polish product sitting at home. So two weekends ago I felt like making a simple black on black “Nail Pollock,” as I like to call it. I think I enjoy the residual mess I made painting the canvas and pouring the nail polish more than the final piece itself? What do you think? (more…)

Meet @Kendra10012

I was introduced to Kendra a few years ago through a mutual friend. We just recently reconnected and I have instantly fallen in love with her instagram feed. A self-proclaimed fan of fashion photography, her on-the-fly selfie shots exude that very je ne sais quoi.  She told me she loves taking pictures and although she has a camera she “hardly uses it, mostly the iPhone.” Looks good to me, besides, Chase Jarvis brilliantly said, “The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You.” Though I am determined to inspire her to carry around the other camera from time to time. Because you never know:)

Aside from the fact that she’s GORGE! here are a few reasons why I absolutely love this girl’s selfies —

i. the shoefie (in this instance, #thatbootie)

ii. the unapologetic designer shoutout selfie (hedi slimane is killing me too)

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 2.30.34 PM

iii. one of my personal faves, aka the shadow selfie (shadows plus skateboards?
this is a girl after my own heart right here)

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 2.36.49 PM

iiii. how she styles her blooms selfie (givenchy flower bomb)

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 2.34.47 PM

v. the shoulder selfie (i must try this one)

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 2.37.06 PM

vi. the sideways selfie (i see the camera loves her no matter which side)

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 2.35.15 PM

vii. and an ultimate favorite, the black + white selfie

I have extended a friendly “Selfie Showdown” with Kendra. I’m not one for selfies when it comes to myself, so this is a good challenge for me. That’s the best thing about the creative community; being inspired by people to push you out of your comfort zone!  So stay tuned for a customized mash-up of our personal versions of “The Selfie.”

“LIFE in Black and White” | Part 1
