no one's got it all...

The photo shoot yesterday was both super fun and super boring. The whole concept of a photo shoot is exciting to me, but when I really think back to what I accomplished in 8 hours, it sure feels like I did a ton of sitting around. My boss had the right idea and brought a magazine, but then I felt like if I was getting paid to be there I should always be at least pretending to do something?

Anyways, the artistic concept of the shoot was 60's inspired which is perfect since I've been watching Mad Men like crazayyy. The location was a gorgeous home in West Van worth millions I'm sure! Jeez even just the view has got to be worth a million doll hairs!

Yesterday is not even comparable to any other photo shoot I've ever helped style. Obviously working with a professional stylist like Tracey is a whole different story. She knew exactly what my boss wanted with a touch of her own styling genius. The photographer Candace and her assistant Andrea were so lovely. The model Amy was better than any model I've ever seen at a shoot. She took direction from Candace really well and added the right amount of initiative when needed. As you can tell from the photos, Johnny of hair and makeup was great. The best part, was that all of them work so well as a team and that really shows in their work.
I can't wait to see the finished photos from Candace & Andrea, they are going to be stunning. Email me at aliciafashionista@gmail.com to inquire about any of the clothing!

Live blogging to you from Adam's couch on a Saturday night...hello :)

I would like to take this moment to announce to you that I officially have a cold. It seems to be the result of too much partying and not enough sleep. Such is the life of a 23 year old social butterfly (and I would like to also blame the Olympics...because I can)

The boys ordered UFC on PayPerView, so I'm taking this time to catch up on photo uploading and blog creeping. I think I stopped paying attention at the fight when that guy's head was bleeding so much into his eyes that he had to stop fighting. Yeah, exactly.

I'm slightly bitter that I have to work tomorrow because it's on a Sunday AND because I have to be in West Van by 8:30 am. No Lazy Sunday pour moi! The only cool thing is that I'll get to work with stylist Tracy Pincott all day and hopefully learn a thing or two. That, or I'll end up spending 8 hours steaming clothes and having orders barked at me. Could go either way...

My outfit yesterday was a lot of layers and a lot of grey and a lot of grey layers. Working in an office, it's impossible to remain at a comfortable temperature all day. Any time that I don't layer, I end up too hot or too cold, but usually I'm just cold. Especially because my vampire co worker closes the blinds because she sparkles in the sunshine :P

This morning I remembered that I'm still in school. It was not a fun realization. Pretty sure I have an assignment due at midnight tomorrow...not impressed!

"I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern — wearing head-to-toe designer has become a bit passé. It’s a new era in fashion — there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together." -Alexander McQueen

Today Vancouver was so beautiful, it was unbelievable! How ironic that we're hosting the WINTER Olympics and it's 14 degrees and sunny. There is so much homework to do but I'm an avoider, so instead I decided to walk Austin with my mom and get some sun exposure (and am now wasting more time blogging about it).
