Appreciate the Ones You Love

Pandora_Claire_Erica_ofakind__27

Pandora Jewelry is all about appreciating the ones that you love and when they approached me about gifting charms to someone in my life I immediately thought of two of my best friends, Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo, who have impacted my life greatly over the years.

History

We first met back in 2010 at a little coffee shop on the Upper West Side and they told me about their dreams of starting an emerging designers platform called Of a Kind. Not only did I come to learn these were two of the most intelligent, visionary women I have ever met, I would also find out that bonds between women are so important and powerful not only in our personal friendship but in the bond these two share.

We shot together, we shared the original Ann Street Studio in the financial district together, I photographed Erica’s wedding (something I never do – but for her, anything), unofficially Claire’s and even all the way down to Texas for SXSW. We’ve laughed and cried, swapped beauty tips and fashion tricks, and seen each other though relationships and moves, business ups and downs, and endless conversations about that future of our lives. I even bought one of Claire’s Grandmother’s paintings! (more…)

Giveaway!

Last year I had the unforgettable experience of staying in Kelly Wearstler’s Malibu mansion for a photoshoot. I can tell you, everything this woman designs is unique, artistic, and seriously special… kind of like Of a Kind.

Of a Kind sells limited-edition pieces from emerging fashion designers and tells their stories online. It is hands down the best place to discover designers and own their pieces! Of a Kind’s recent collaboration with Kelly Wearstler yielded this beautiful hand casted Pyrite Facet Cuff (value of $290) and we are giving ONE of these beauties away!.. which is super special because there are only 50 in the whole wide world.

 How to enter: Super simple, just sign up for their (very well written & beautiful) mailing list HERE.

A winner will be chosen on December 14th!

While you are waiting to find out if you’ve won, you can “meet the designer” or read “behind the scenes” on the editions page. That’s one of the reasons I heart Of a Kind… everything is better with a story.

Looking for unique holiday gifts and want to support up and coming designers? I think this is perfect for him; a great gift for a little sister; what female photographer wouldn’t love to have this?; and I might actually buy this one for myself!

Happy Shopping!

Ace & Jig

I was first introduced to Ace & Jig through their limited edition collection with Of A Kind. I’m so happy to see other women loving the line as much as I do. This fall their pieces were featured on Anthropologie’s Make in Kind, and to no surprise with amazing reviews.

This is my favorite piece of the collection, a reversible blanket coat that feels like a hug around you it is so soft.  So hello crisp fall mornings, I’m ready for you now…

Men’s Hair…

Thomas came by the studio recently to model for Of a Kind and I could not get over his most recent hair cut. It reminded me of a photo series Norman Parkinson did of Montgomery Clift… and I was obsessed.

This post has no real purpose. I just wanted to photograph his hair. #donezo

Yes, Deer Tie” above for Of a Kind / cover image has that scarf again.
