I come bearing pictures! One of those fashion self-portraiture bits that I’m constantly trying to wrangle people into helping me with (one day, I will get a remote. One day. That day may well be soon). For this shoot, I collaborated with make-up artist Kiran Kaur, who did a lovely job of making me look good and complementing the earthy tones of the first two pieces — the green cowl and burnt orange hat — and then adding a little bit of pink to my look for the blue and purple hats. She also touched up my hair and assisted me with the photography.
This was my first shoot after moving from Hampstead Heath to Belsize Park — it was the day after I moved, actually, so I wasn’t really familiar with the area yet. We got ready at my now-regular Starbucks, shot on my street and another one nearby, and touched up my makeup between shots at the little table outside the Springhealth gym. I’ve still got another two pieces to shoot, and I’ll post some behind-the-scenes pics along with those when I’ve got them.
Meanwhile, I wanted to show you these. If you love the hats and cowls as much as I do, head on over to pixiebell.etsy.com! The quality and craftsmanship are amazing. I actually had my mom include my dragonslayer hat in my coat parcel because I missed it so much.
