Apartment Therapy

I originally asked my best girl Emily if I could take her portrait for my Everyday Beauty series this past weekend. I appeared at her apartment with my camera in tow, but she wasn't feeling her best for a close-up. Note: even without a lick of makeup, this girl looks better than the most dolled up doll.

Anyways, since I had my camera with me, I asked if I could shoot her apartment instead. I've been visiting Em at her bachelor apartment for the past two years when we reconnected after attending the same university program. It's a place where I can go to cuddle up with a faux-fur blanket, drink homemade Italian vanilla soda and have a therapy-like chat with someone who gets IT.

The space is white on white on white but Emily's eye for vintage (fur, fur, fur) and obsession with gold gives it an eclectic vibe. It's the type of space that screams her spirit, not Style at Home.

Below are some photos I took from my visit. Hello Jane Fonda! x
