I have no idea what is look is. Seriously–whaaa!? I knew I wanted to shoot this skirt, which you’ve seen before here. I also knew I wanted to shoot it with a cropped top. Only available at the moment was this leopard bandeau bra, and from there I got the idea of doing an African Queen theme (Cue music: “You are my African Queen, the girl of my dreams…so black, so beautiful. I love you, I love you, I love you…”).

We shot these at Pier Park, in the Chelsea piers, at dusk. We started doing regular pictures, but then I just felt like dancing and being silly (I love dancing! a day I do not dance it’s a day I’ve wasted!) and these crazy pictures started showing up! I LOVE THEM! These are my “favoritests” pictures I’ve ever shown you. I’m thinking I want to have at least one or two pictures like this in every outfit post. How would you like that?
