A recent project I worked on for Free People…  go here for all the words and shots. A beautiful evening spent running around with equally beautiful and inspiring women…. Annie Edmonds behind the lens, Emily Nickrent on hair and makeup… and styling by yours truly.

Just a snippet on here….

…This shoot was inspired by late August eves… what’s known to my whole being as my very favorite time of year. Those late afternoons that turn dark before you know it, though the temperature barely teeters. Your skin still wears that golden hue from the sun of June’s first strong kisses. A red lip is all you need to feel beautiful. Music plays live along sidewalks not yet walked… lights dangle from tree lined squares, where they, in the night, have taken a rather empty seat to the normal hustle of the day’s daily dos… 

This here… I say… spend 24 hours outside alone. Go to dinner by yourself. Bring a book. A journal. Go see a show that makes you comfortably uncomfortable. Put on a red lip for YOU. Reflect. To love yourself, unconditionally. To understand who you are alone, with only your own mind to answer to. Much becomes clear around you, all that was heavy suddenly dissolves. Negative thoughts lift … and the life you have made and continue to make seems, suddenly, limitless…

Lucius….. Amen. Nuff said…
