Let me just tell you how freakin IN LOVE I am with this dress from Crash & Burn. OH MY GOD. Perfection in a dress. Crash & Burn sent me this almost two months ago, and I am just now getting around to having it shots. I had to save this for the perfect location, occasion, etc. I have worn it quite a few times since getting it. It is seriously the most comfortable dress I own, and if you know me, you know I get down with the tie dye. Seriously though, check their shiz out. All of it is just plain amazing. Thank you Demi so much for making this shoot so magical. All these shots are TOO PERFECT.
Oh, yeah, that blue in my hair.. It ain't hair dye. It's pastels. As in, that artsy fartsy upgraded version of chalk. Get the crazy colors you want, without the commitment. Just wash it out once you're done with it. If I wasn't currently trying to get this job that I don't think would be down with unnatural hair colors, I would totally dye my hair this color. But alas, I'm sticking with chalking my hair for now. It's actually really easy to do and doesn't hardly take me any time at all (then again, my hair isn't exactly long, and I'm only chalking my fringe).
Also, let me tell you how much shit Demi and I went through for this shoot. First, dodging cars while I'm trying to lay in the middle of the road. I ain't trying to get turned into roadkill any time soon. Second of.. That damn palm tree branch? Yeah, that sucker decided it wanted to drop dirt and shit down my dress. Cool, dirty boobs. Then those photos in front of the orchard/corn? Yeah, dust galore. I swear we were both caked with dust and dirt by the time we were out of there. Totally worth it though. We ended the day driving back to my place singing Cobra Starship to each other. Yeah, we're those girls (lesbehonest).
Hope you all have had a great labor day weekend!
One of Demi's photos from this shoot will be featured in this month's Fresno Art Hop at Broadway Studios downtown! So, if you live in Fresno, make sure to make it down there this Thursday and support all our talented local artists!
