In honor of last week’s Earth Day [April 22], I thought I’d search for some cool, stylish eco-friendly clothing. One of the most unique pieces I found was the Sonic Fabric tie. Not only is it created from recycled materials, it’s made with 50% polyester thread and 50% cassette tape!

Fashion by Michelle!

After my interview with Jeff last week, I’ve become engrossed with Lookbook.nu again. There’s just so much inspiration on the site. You can definitely sense the passion in everyone’s photographs. Fashion is a form of art and self-expression for all of these people.

One of my favorite Lookbooks of all time is that of Pascal Grob [http://lookbook.nu/user/13336-Pascal-G], a 21 year old student from Zurich, Switzerland. The thing I really enjoy about his look is that he never goes over the top. His style is very streamline, classic and toned down; to me, simplicity has always been the key. To quote Tim Gunn, “The simpler the clothes, the more impact they have.” The two aspects I have to say that I like most about Pascal’s outfits are that he reuses a lot of the same pieces and techniques [i.e. cuffing], and his ability to expertly pair expensive designer clothing with items he finds at popular budget friendly places like H&M or American Apparel. It goes to show that you don’t have to buy new [or pricey] clothes whenever a new trend pops up to look polished and fashionable.

Check out Pascal’s blog: http://www.fashionbitsandbobs.com/

I posted some new digitals that lovely K Po took for me while I was in NYC last weekend. BTW had so much fun. Finally have an apartment- thanks to Tommy’s reference! Can’t wait for summer to be here. I saw Katie’s play- Rehearsal- so effing funny! She did an awesome job and I’m truly proud to say she is one of my best friends! We went to Cosmic Cantina and had organic burritos, later I ate a pound of froyo. Of course- per tradition- I went to Union Square farmers market… I go every time I’m in the city. I can’t wait to get all my fresh produce from there this summer! Saturday morning tradition!

I also posted photos from the shoot with Sadie Dayton from a few weeks ago! Let me know what you think!

As for agencies- I dropped off pictures in NYC but haven’t heard anything- but I am not freaking out… yet. I did submit pictures to Storm Models in London- Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Alex Wek, Alessandra Ambrosio are all signed with them- and they requested more pictures from me- we know how that goes haha. Haven’t heard anything back since… keep your fingers crossed, say a prayer, do a spell, and all the stuff that would get me signed haha.

I also put some pictures from an event I did for Rag and Bone at Saks in Boston- got to meet the designers it was sick!

Desiderata by Max Erhmann

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Fashion by Michelle!

Hey everyone! Lately, I’ve been talking with a friend who I lost touch with for a few months. He’s a big fan of fashion, and has a great Lookbook.nu account. So, I thought that I would introduce you to him this week! His name is Jeff Phillips, and I had a little interview with him about his style and what he thinks about when he creates an outfit.

1) You’re a stylish guy, but are you actually into fashion and trends or do you just wear whatever you have around?

I am definitely into fashion. I find myself gravitating a lot to the industry because since I’m really big into photography. I adore looking at magazines such as GQ, W, Esquire, Nylon, as well as Vogue because I love seeing the way designers showcase their latest collections. The advertisements inspire me to think outside of the box, so to speak, and to try new concepts in reference to my own photography.

When it comes to my thoughts though in the morning as far as what I’m going to wear for the day, I do find myself debating in my head as to whether or not certain clothes match well with others, or completely clash. There are days, though, just like everyone in the world, where you’ll find me in a pair of vintage skinny jeans and a v-neck t-shirt.

I do keep up with the trends, mainly through means of the internet, as well as the magazines mentioned above. I find that being into photography is a beautiful “gateway” in to the world though, because no matter where you are, you can sign onto a website like Flickr or LookBook and instantly see people wearing clothes all over the world in ways that you never even conceived. Also it makes it easy to keep up with the trends before they go mainstream, or you see them in your local areas.

Most guys aren’t big into shopping sprees and such, but I, on the other hand, will spend every last cent and do massive damage to my bank account when it comes to shopping for clothes. I have more clothes than I have room for and there are tons that are sitting in my closet with the tags still on them because I’ve yet to wear them!

2) How would you describe your style?

To be quite honest I’m not sure if my style could be described in words. I’ve always been the kind of person who enjoys keeping people guessing, so they never really know what to expect. I like that, because I like doing my own thing, or taking a popular trend and putting my own twist to it to make it my own.

I guess if I did have to classify it though, I’d probably say that if Jude Law and James Dean got together with David Beckham and merged their own styles, it would be similar to what you see on me.

You know, a little bit of British class, with a dash of American rebel.

3) Do you think that where you live [Georgia, the South] has an influence on your style?

In all actuality, I find that I seem to rebel against the fashion norms of the area I live in. The only influence it’s really had on me is it has made me want to be different and do my own thing as opposed to what the majority seems to rock around here.
My dad is originally from Los Angeles and my mom and him lived out there the first eight years they were married, so needless to say it’s sort of like my second home in many ways. I’ve found that the freedom of style that you find in the bigger cities like LA, isn’t really found in many of the Southern areas due to the fact that it seems that so many people are still so close minded in what is acceptable and what is not. Just like anywhere, the trends and the new stuff hit the big cities first, and then eventually several months, sometimes even more than a year later, they finally start making little glimpses in smaller areas like where I live.
I also stay heavily in the loop about clothing on the European fronts as well. I’m not a heavily built guy, so I find it quite difficult to find clothes around here that are actually designed for people like me, without having to raid the teen section just to get a proper fit.
So if anywhere has influenced my style, it would be other places such as the West Coast (primarily the Southern California region) and Western Europe (especially the U.K.), not the Southern East Coast.

4) If you have to put on an outfit quickly, what’s your go-to item of clothing?

My go to item of clothing if I had to pick one would be my vintage washed skinny jeans, they seem to go with everything I can put together, a shirt and tie, a deep v-neck t-shirt. I mean, really, they are just that versatile.

5) What celebrities do you find that you look to for inspiration in reference to style?

Honestly, I could write a novel here because really I draw from so many different people. Some of the ones I’m most heavily inspired by are that of James Dean, Jude Law, David Beckham, Daniel Craig, as well as the random guy I might pass by on the street. I just find inspiration in everything and everyone. I think that everyone has their own unique style and I like to take those styles and merge them all together to add my own personal touch and make it something that I get enjoyment from.

The Happenings

Thursday night was so fun. Laura and I went over to Gia and Caitlin’s apartment. We had fondue and champagne and taught Caitlin to move her hips like… well…  blacks and latinos haha we literally danced for 4 hours straight. Amazing work out. BT DUBS- Caitlin is a great dancer!

So last weekend was one of the best Ive had in a while. Friday night, I did not go out since I had to be up at 530 the next morning for my shoot in Newburyport. So Friday night I just watched movies and it was great. The next morning, I met up with Kelly at 540ish, she was the suedo stylist for the day and we made our way to my friend Abba’s place because she was driving us all to Newburyport for the shoot. Abba and I have worked together at Ruelala and Ian, the other male model, is a semi newbie to the industry but super chill guy. The shoot was awesome! We got to shoot on Plum Island beach and I had to get in the FREEZING water. OMG I forgot the photographer, Sadie- AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER, got us bagels from some place that is known for their French toast bagel aka I ate two of them haha. OOOoOo Also, shout out to Callista, ex-stylist for Ruelala- off to bigger and better things!, for organizing the whole thing! Anyways, so we shot on the beach was so fun. Then we got lunch and shot with Upper Crust Pizza- aka this is the reason why I love my job. After we were done we got amazing gelato. Newburyport is the CUTEST town I’ve ever been too. Legit.

Sunday, Gia and Caitlin invited me to their Easter Brunch at their other roommate’s, Julie- also a friend of mine, restaurant, Masa. SO GOOD! They started with blue and yellow corn- corn bread, with an assortment of spreads. Then we I had this almond crusted, stuffed with caramelized bananas- French toast- lined with a delicate layer of caramel sauce. So good but so filling! Good thing I had Caitlin and Gia to help me out haha. Then we went and laid out at a park near their place!

As for the trying to get an agency thing, Ive been rejected from a few. But an agency in London, Models 1, requested to see more pictures… so cross your fingers!

AHHHHHH I found a place to live this summer! My friend Tommy told me about his friend in NYC who is looking for a subletter, so I contacted him (Tim) and I’m going to meet him and see the place on Friday while I’m in the city! Also while I am in the city, I will be shooting with Carlo Iyog! http://www.carloiyog.com/

As for news and the happenings that’s all I have, I think.

The MOST comfortable robes and other things to go on my body! Seriously, they make great gifts because they are cheap for the quality of their products and who doesn’t like softness on their bodies!
