water's edge





All photos by Wes Sumner
Dress: Topshop; Leather corset: Alexander Wang (similar style here); Shoes: Valentino; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: Zara (similar style here); Necklace: Mynamenecklace.com (similar style here); Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, Gap leather wrap bracelet (similar style here)

I know I said this about yesterday's post, but I think these photos might actually be my true favorite. As you may know, Wes and I teamed up to shoot my Matchbook Magazine feature and when I mentioned this outfit, we both found it fitting to be shot right by the water near the Bay Bridge, in hopes that the wind would catch the skirt just right. And the wind, well, she certainly didn't disappoint! 

In other news, stay tuned later today when I announce the winner of the Breil watch giveaway! So many great entries, guys. I loved reading your comments!

And as always, thank you so much for reading! I can't express how fortunate I feel to have such wonderful readers like yourself! It truly makes my day, every day

UPDATE: The winner of the Breil watch giveaway is Nicole from Giraffe Legs! Nicole, I'll be emailing you shortly! Congratulations!

  1. The leather corset makes me think of Taylor Tomasi Hill... She probably sported something similar a while ago.. :o) Either way, it's awesome!
