I have been hard at work at the studio but I always love being distracted by visitors. I have no problem finding time to play dress up with friends. Here are a few of my favorite shots that I took out on the terrace at my studio of some lovely and talented ladies in my SS13 collection, which is now on sale 30-50% off at the shop.

Jena is a multi-talented muse, making magic with photography, film making, and acting. Check out her dreamy photography work here and follow her on Instagram here. Also look out for Jena in the new Hunger Games film coming soon, so exciting!

Noelle Downing caught climbing through the window in her Mirage Dress
Noelle is a lovely young lady who I met while she was working at one of my favorite stores in Brooklyn, In God We Trust. Later I come to find out, she takes great photos for Jaglever, and has a blog of her own here.
