SHEI Magazine hosted its 3rd Annual SSFS this past Friday at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. U of M student sported a variety of looked styled from Ann Arbor’s local retailers. Thanks to the Ann Arbor Area State Street Association, 25 models took the stage that night while dj Alex Teo spun runway worthy tunes.
It was a family affair and everyone was dressed in their best to take photos in front of the SHEI Magazine backdrop.I wore a black seamless stetch dress from Madewell with a pastel colored jewl necklace from Anthro.
SHEI’s Editor in Chief Shea Corrigan looked stunning in a royal blue vintage sequined top.
Some of my favorite looks were those styled from Wendy.
The Get Up

I had (what could be) my last outdoor shoot with Natasha at the end of September. I’ve been holding out on sharing these for the day when Maples and Oaks are shamefully bare and I need to be reminded of the lush green leave that once shaded me from the September sun.
Goodbye wedges; adios sun dresses; adieu to white eyelet cotton.
Open toes now covered by leather; bare skin concealed leggings and silk replaced by wool.
I see sweaters, I see pants; I see Fall trends at a glance.
Layers, layers socks and boots; not too tight and not too loose.
Floral dress and cropped cotton blazer.
Smiles rain or shine.
Envision this: Anthropologie and the MOMA have a baby and, the personified version of IKEA embraces its position on outskirts of main-stream fashion…

Take a closer look. Perspective is everything.
Set and Props:
A dubious government in a godforsaken city. Unresponsive to the deportation of creativity. Expectations, disgust, fidelity and patronage are concealed; not behind closed doors, in front of them.
Depictions of reality, behavior and contradictions diagram the regression of social systems and subordinates.
Public spaces; once vacant and impaired, now inhabited by urbanites past and present.
Overlooked yet expanding. Small reminders of existence and life appear in big installments.
In the city that once was,
beckon a resurgence of the city that still is.
Detroit is an inspiration. Public art is a part of the beautification project taking place throughout Detroit’s downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Support and share the work of Michigan artists.

This winter, fur is growing out of control. Literally; dresses, jackets, hats, sleeves, shorts, shoes, and other unusual pieces.
Time for a Brazilian? Let’s cut back on the fur a bit; faux, fox and all other furry animals.
