Well done! I was going to invite you to be part of my real models and actors 40+ casting site but it's for women in NYC and I see you are in the SF area. I hope you inspire more women to explore their inner model/stylist.

I did something similar in 2017 with thrift shop clothes. I like that you chose one location.

Like pairing wine with a meal, I called upon my inner location scout and paired each outfit with different NYC backdrops. Our Catskills log cabin paired well with my vintage Madewell overalls that I found at a Salvation Army in the 1970's. Madewell, originally a work wear company, was founded in 1937 in New Bedford Mass. The last Madewell factory closed in 1989 but then in 2004 the Madewell name and logo was purchased by JCrew's former chief executive Mickey Drexler and reinvented into the fashion brand we know today. The story is that Mickey didn’t have a story for Madewell so he bought one... for authenticity.

I love this, “ What a fantastic equalizer getting rid of gender would be” and I’m totally with you. Social construct-absolutely. You can already see it happening if you blur a few lines. Congrats on this piece and your blog.

Ooh. Love! I'm esp entranced by watching the row boat rise and fall on the tides. Beautiful setting and gorgeous fashion inspiration. Thank you!

She had me until "who really feels like a woman". Raised hand here! Most people's gender identity conforms to their biological sex, boring but true. I'm glad she's found a label that twits her but that doesn't mean good old man and woman doesn't fit for the vast majority.
