Happy Sunday as Momma Always Says


Easter “bag-skets” (mom attached that old family photo of three to mine, and made up the term “bag-sket”), dark chocolate Cadbury eggs, Sunday church, family love, a new vintage dress, linen pants, yard photos, iced coffee, a full late lunch, pound cake with strawberries and whip, a drive in the country, a venture to Oneonta, and a long road back to Tennessee… just a glimpse of my Easter!
Thank goodness we can place our faith in a risen Lord, and not something that has passed.

The Time to Come


This past Saturday, I was on the other side of the camera (well sort of) with TJ and Margaret… dressed in 20s attire! Cari Phillips and Katlyn Moncada recruited us to be their models for a class project and we were happy to oblige. If someone is asking me to dress up for them in themed garb (from my favorite clothing era, no less) then I am bound to say yes.
Saturday afternoon rolled around and we drove…to the scariest house I have EVER been in. You have no idea. I will not say too much because I don’t want my mom and dad inquiring about why I was in some scary house in the first place with four other friends and umpteen cameras.
Things were going real nice and the photos were turning out quite pretty until TJ was standing in the doorway and HE HEARD FOUR FOOTSTEPS and declared it was time for us to, as my dad says, “blow this place.” We scurried like I have never scurried before in those red Mary Janes of mine. Moral of the story no. 1: DO. NOT. GO. IN. SCARY. HOUSES. FOR. THE. SAKE. OF. PHOTO. PROJECTS (even if they are for Jim Veneman). Honestly, I was hoping an image of a ghost would turn out on my film. Moral of the story no. 2: Go to S&J Grocery instead. They are very nice there.

I used Vogue’s shoot, “The Society Slouch” with Caroline Trentini and Chanel Iman, as my inspiration! I almost wore my sparkly Nando Jones top. Sadly, it didn’t make the cut.
While we are on the subject of Vogue, I would like to announce that I am officially going to be an intern at Billy Reid this summer! I am ecstatic. I recently found some exceptional behind the scenes photos of Billy Reid’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection during NY Fashion Week… see those HERE.

XOXO!

A Mini Vaca!


A couple of weeks ago, I went to Oneonta to see my aunt and uncle. I have been going there since I was really little and it never stops being fun! When I was younger, believe it or not, I used to go on calls with my uncle, who is a veterinarian. So many wild adventures and hilarious stories occurred on those calls. But now, we stick to our Abby-comes-to-Oneonta traditions: pizza and a movie. This time though, we made homemade chocolate chip cookies, had a delicious breakfast, and I even got to see my little cousin Payton. And the rain Friday evening was beautiful. Sometimes, I absolutely love the country. Everybody needs a little bucolic living once in a while!
