I’m convinced that I found THE most comfortable dress ever. This gorgeous pink mini-dress from Black Swan is seriously everything! I love the color, and the cutout is too cute. The silhouette’s super flattering, and the fabric feels like butter on my skin – it’s perfect for those of you looking to add a new summer dress to your wardrobe. I actually already featured it on my instagram account a while back. I wore it to my shoot with Anthony Paige when we tackled the Michaels Challenge. You guys get a BOGO deal today because I’m sharing photos from two different shoots: one’s my usual OOTD and the other’s more editorial.
Let’s start with the latter! This was my first time working with Anthony, and I had so much fun. He majored in photography at MICA, one of the best art schools in the country, so I knew I was in for a treat. I wasn’t sure how the employees would feel about us shooting in their store, but they were surprisingly cool with it. The customers definitely weren’t though – they kept walking past us and gave us reallllly strange looks. Good thing I have zero shame, ha. Anthony and I just laughed it off and kept doing our thing.
Photo 1: You guys have no idea how dirty the floor was. I legit took a shower afterwards because my legs felt gross. It was worth it though because I love how this shot turned out! Anthony used a wide-angle lens to elongate my legs, and the flowers made a beautiful backdrop.
Photo 2: So, I was straight up lying in the middle of the aisle on top of a bed of yarn, lmao. It was surprisingly comfortable though!
Photo 3: Anthony had me “hide” behind a wall of vines, and I happily obliged. This is my favorite shot out of the 3 he gave me! Which one do you guys like best? make sure to let me know by leaving a comment below.
Now onto today’s OOTD! I styled my pink mini with a fab cropped jacket from BLANK NYC for a casual everyday look – purchased via Trunk Club for those of you interested. I’m a huge fan of their outerwear because their items are girly with just the right amount of edge and sophistication. This embellished denim jacket is actually one of their designs as well! I’ve remixed it several times in the past, but you’ll probably see it again – not gonna lie, ha. Here are other cute options from their line that I love:
