H A P P Y B I R D S




this recent new york trip was entirely too much fun. all of us rue gals got to be together, staying at the
Gramercy Park Hotel (which is an unbelievable hotel!) Check out those hanging bulbs, i mean come on! For some reason it felt like a secret society hotel because of dark and mysterious it was - in the best way possible!

we also had a little behind the scenes shoot for issue 4 of rue magazine! we are saving some of our fun hotel shots for the magazine, but here are some of us prancin around the streets like happy little birds. thank you so much trent bailey for making us feel so special that day!

that big red bow? i know, right! my adorable intern emma made that for me and i love it so much! you can get one too right here!

The bow looks sooooooo cute, it photographs wonderfully. I'm also obsessed with your drapey coat...where is it from?! I've stayed at GPH hotel before tooo and it is so insane. Rose Bar is the sexiest place. Defff know what you mean about the mystery. Very excited for the new Rue!!
