Real Life Style #23 // Role Reversal

Oh lookie! We’ve got a guest star in today’s Real Life Style post – my gorgeous sister, Kelsey Combe, who’s usually the one BEHIND the lens. But, since she’ll be hitting some shows with me {and a few with Erin for Apartment 34!} I thought we’d give her a little love on the blog.
Plus she has awesome polka-dot shoes.

Heights of Fashion

I had to do a photo-shoot for my fashion journalism final project… Kelsey took the pictures, we’re pretty proud of it 🙂

model as muse

yesterday kelsey and i set out to explore the museum mile festival with the intent of visiting the guggenheim for free. however, most of new york must have shared our stroke of brilliance as the line to get in stretched down and around the block. not in the mood for waiting we wandered down fifth avenue observing the sidewalk chalk mural being created by a multitude of impromptu artists and eating hot dogs, we ended up at the Met. once inside we were serendipitously led to the special exhibition: The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion. it was such a treat.

another year


monday night found me at a lovely party thrown by my wonderful friends- which clearly took me by complete surprise. there was pizza and champagne, and trick candles. it was fabulous.

now for more serious matters- i am shocked that i have reached the quarter century mark and my wardrobe is lacking all of the classic staples. we have already learned that i do not possess a trench coat, but i’m also missing the perfect Little Black Dress, i don’t own a pencil skirt and my closet does not contain anything in cashmere. heartbreaking, i know. my plan for this year is to rectify this problem–with tim gunn’s guide as my starting point. are you ready? this is going to be fun…


happy friday!

this made me smile. maybe because there have been similar pictures of me and K… well, in so much as the pictures included 2 girls and an Amtrak train. we would never have been quite that stylish…
