Project Emilie: Patriotic Stylistas

"I'm back!" is what Emilie said during our latest photoshoot.  You might have noticed that Emilie had to take a break from the fashion world for a little while.  She wants you to know that she's back and better than ever!  A bad case of chicken pox attacked her porcelain skin.  I asked her if she wanted to do a photoshoot while she was covered in polka dots, and she said, "no, I have to get rid of these first."  She thought she would have chicken pox forever and said, "I like the way I used to look" and "now I have to get used to looking like this."  She was so relieved when she found out they would eventually disappear.  Luckily the polka dots are gone and her modeling career has started again.

One of Emilie's favorite holidays is 4th of July because it's a perfect time to break out the red, white, and blue outfits!  So it wasn't hard to find preppy and patriotic ensembles in Em's closet.  Remember, all of our photoshoots are based on Emilie's ideas and I just roll with it!  Em even had her nails painted patriotically for the occasion - she really likes celebrating all holidays.  I hope you stylistas have as much fun looking at our pics as we had shooting them.

Chillin' Out by the pool is the best!
