Pastel Chic Lookbook

February 1, 2014


Last week, Nikki and I spend three quick days just letting the hours pass and making the most out of time spent together. We didn’t get the chance to spend much of 2013 with each other, and many many things have changed since but it all still feels the same. On our first night, I bleach her hair tips golden blonde while we update each other about all that we missed from each other’s lives the past months. It’s comforting to know some things never change.

We wake early the next day, shooting the entire time the sun was up for SHOP THE GYPSY SOUL and the day was filled with so much good vibes and laughter, dancing to songs (playlist here) randomly in between taking photographs and changing outfits — shoots don’t have to be at all serious and boring. By dusk we are exhausted, so we pack up and organize my room, take a nice cold shower and nap. The next two days we do nothing else but eat and talk and attempt to watch Walter Mitty (our fake DVD copy decided to fail on us just when it was about to get exciting!) and then share giggles and talk again.

All side stories aside though, here it finally is – the first lookbook for a little online shop I’m officially opening tonight, SHOP THE GYPSY SOUL!

In order to support myself as I leave school to follow my passions, I figured it would be a good idea to open an online shop where I can sell vintage finds, clothing + accessories, hand mades + homemades, travel hauls, as well as camera equipment + photoshop presets – all things I personally love, make and use. This is updated as much as I am able to travel and bring back home goods and pieces from all over the world, as well as make more art and handmades. All earnings from this shop are saved for future adventures, so thank you very much lovely stranger, your support is very well appreciated. May you be blessed!

      Thank you so much Ellen! You definitely should, although I don’t ship to places around the world just yet. Definitely considering to do so in the future though!

    What do you have to say?
