When it rains, it pours, as they say. Back in May, I was asked to be a part of Avenue Magazine's Style Q&A. Before I go into the details, I first want to mention what a great deal of respect I have for this magazine. I'm proud that our city has a forward thinking, intelligent, stylish publication like Avenue....(and it's free!)
At the time of the shoot, my home was in the midst of a home reno. There was flooring a-muck, dust galore, and stranded in the living room were several kitchen appliances! But looking at the pages you would be none the wiser thanks to the savvy team of photographers and stylists who swept in and literally worked MAGIC in the space. Unbeknownst to the Avenue reader, the messy details were skillfully omitted, and in it's place was left order and simplicity.
The vision and talent of this team was amazing. Pivotal to this was Lori Andrews who photographed the shoot. She has a excellent eye, she's very talented, she's got smarts, and she's a total hoot! Also on set was stylist Phaedra Godchild of Styleista who brought along her great style, as well as makeup artist Lucy Morris, Art Director Vanessa Brewer who masterminded along with Lori, and of course style editor Ricky Zayshley, whose energy and bright blue eyes brought definite panache to the shoot. :)
Overall the entire process was so fun! I especially loved working with the wonderful people who were involved, and I feel grateful both for the opportunity itself, and for the chance to make some new friends!

My little guy also made a little cameo appearance, which was the highlight for both of us! Thanks again Avenue, and thanks Universe.
