Coney Island’s Summer Love

“I met her at the Burger King we fell in love by the soda machine

So we took the car downtown the kids were hanging out all around

Then we went down to Coney Island on the coaster and around again

And no one’s gonna ever tear us apart cause she’s my sweetheart …”

A Very Martha Christmas

This past weekend was the Martha Stewart Holiday Craft Show in New York City’s Starrett-Lehigh Building, an old warehouse which is also home to the offices of Martha Stewart and spectacular views of the Hudson river. It was everything you would expect from Martha- charming, clean, beautiful, glitter, and full of talented crafters. One of those crafters, Kylie Fife, is not only a sweet person and incredible stylist (see our Delicious story) but also makes stunning jewelry under her label Jones Fife which you can see her wood + brass bangles below! It was a thrill to be among such talented and sweet artists playing among tables of crafts under the umbrella of a Very Martha Christmas.

Immortal Autumn

This week Immortal Autumn came out on WhatsWear, an online fashion industry publication. It was a wonderfully romantic collaboration with the very talented stylist, jewelry designer and crafter Kylie Fife and amazing makeup artist and painter Virginia Bradley. The whole shoot came into it’s vampire-esque focus by Kylie’s fascination with a guy who wears a lace scarf around Williamsburg, before we knew it she was pulling vintage velvet hair ties and practicing her tulle bows. Terence from ORB Model Management was a perfect romantic intense and strong yet tragically fragile subject who gave me one of my favorite photographs which Kylie and I call The Michelangelo (beauty image on black with the open buttoned shirt and eyes closed).

We were so excited to see it live on WhatsWear, I hope you will stop by and see more of the images from Immortal Autumn on their rich fashion site!
