that new york cool

One of the things I love most about working on this little corner of the internet of mine, is the people that it brings into my life, from fellow content creators, stylists, up and coming designers and photographers. Just a few months back, Angie Silvy of Sterling Silvy (a digital content agency) reached out to me about a possible collaboration project with Levis. Being the huge Levis fan that I am (which you can read more about here), I jumped at the opportunity and let her know that I was eager to start. 

Fast forward a few weeks, and Angie showed up at my door here in the West Village, camera gear in tow, ready to shoot around my neighborhood (yep, she's the agency founder AND principal photographer -- talk about a woman after my own heart). She's a pint size, surf beach blonde Aussie, and feisty as hell. Needless to say, we hit it off instantly. We started roaming my new neighborhood on one of those perfect May days looking for shoot locations and before long, I felt like I was just hanging out with a dear friend I hadn't seen in a long time. You can't deny when you have great working chemistry with someone -- bonus points when you're down to grab a few glasses of rose with them after work (which we promptly did).

Her vision for the shoot? Since I was the lone NYC based blogger for the campaign, she wanted both of my looks to exude that New York cool girl vibe, with extra emphasis on those italics. I swiftly told her that I hardly exuded that (at least not yet anyway) but that I would try my best. All I have to say is, sometimes it's amazing what a little ice blue Vespa and red lips can do for your cool girl factor

behind every great woman {ladies in levis}

Behind every great woman, is a great pair of jeans.

Like most kids growing up in smaller, suburban towns, back to school shopping meant everyone piling into the car during one of the hottest weekends at the end of August to go to the mall. And more specifically, especially between the grades of about 4th and 8th, we'd head to Miller's Outpost for jeans. (Whoa, throwback, does anyone else remember Miller's Outpost? I'm clearly dating myself here.)

Confession: Jean shopping was always my favorite (shoes were a close second). Personally, I think it boiled down to the display: a floor to ceiling wall full of denim upon denim, each stack slightly different from the last. Distressed. Dark wash. Light rinse. Boot cut. Flared. Straight leg. Relaxed. Skinny. Low rise. High rise. You get the picture. Lots of possibilities that almost begged the sartorial question, who do you want to be this year? And regardless of what jean phase was of the moment, I always came back to Levis. 

For that reason, I've been a Levis gal for as long as I can remember. The fit, the durability, the price point have made them a mainstay in my denim rotation for years -- and I love how they've practically grown up with me (or perhaps it's the other way around?). Either way, when they asked me to be a part of their latest women's denim line launch, I practically jumped at the chance. (OK, more like I pinched myself and then jumped.)

We snapped these photos a few weeks back on one of those crisp, but still warm New York afternoons -- the kind that make you feel like anything could happen and in a way, that anything is usually staring at you right in the face. Like a wall full of possibilities, asking you how are you going to crush today? 

And then you crush it.
