Discoveries of beautifully quiet places are always a welcomed activity. That's exactly what happened driving back from Palm Springs; first finding a narrow, desolate path and then some abandoned tour trams. Shooting in environmentally barren circumstances is fun because of all the natural stimuli to work with (ie. strong sunrays, wind that could literally blow me away, and dry desert heat haze). My kitty claws made things even more interesting.

I love the idea of basics that are slightly off kilter as if they've been injected with hydraulics. For instance, my outfit may just seem like a white under palette with a layer of loud fringey-ness on top. And it is. But looking closely, my bra/top is made of a thick, bandage gauze material while my skirt has all this lovely satin, scalloping detail. 
All of this is really just an invite for you to come closer to me. Finger beckon ensues.

  14. This outfit and backdrop are both gorgeous! I love the dusty "Dusk Til Dawn"-ish scenery, it really brings the fringe to life! And that scalloped skirt is amazing! I have been thrift shopping for a really old fringe jacket in leather or suede, the one your wearing is awesome!
