Do I love flowers or nice underthings more?

Close call.

Last month I had the honor of creating fresh wearables for the Salem’s Scissors Spring 2018 Ediflorial (get it? Ediflorial/editorial?).

Poe’s crown is made with iris, rose and acacia– one of my fav types of greenery, as I have memories harvesting buckets and buckets of it in California.

Alex Butterfield (Butterfield Photography) was our photographer, assisted by Francisco Escobar Mendez (Let’s Be Frank Photography). Working with them was a real treat. Alex was very thoughtful and made sure to get some shots just for me—that is, where the flowers were in the spotlight. I am very particular about how the flowers look <insert laugh/cry emoji and eyeroll emoji> but he welcomed my direction on set, and to that, I am very appreciative!

Salem’s Scissors handmade lingerie is special. It’s an impressive one-woman show featuring Sabrina Spörk Woodling.

Not only do I like to support people in my community, and women following their dreams/working for themselves, I like to surround myself with items that were crafted by actual hands, nearby (read: with heart, and locally).

Read more about Sabrina here.

Sophia Johnson did everyone’s makeup so flawlessly. Hair was done by Allie Hesse. Hearteyes for Nicole’s braid and Wylee’s curls (below).

Sabrina is currently working on a few items for me and I can’t wait! I chose the dark bouquet fabric (pictured below) paired with black mesh for the undies and dark violet velvet for the bra. As for styles, I got the Taylor set with removable Kitty Klips, which is what Katrina is wearing below. Sabrina is also making me six-clip garter belt and another pair of the high-waisted undies with hot hot pink velvet and a super-summery, bright floral print. Wheee!

You can find the lovely people who modeled these skivvies and flowers on Instagram: Liliana, Poe, Nicole/ Tangibly Teal Creations, Wylee, Mikaela and Katrina.

Special thanks also to Cori Taylor who was the ever-helpful assistant.
