It was during my first month of working at Julia's aunt's boutique Urban Blues that I realized how much I enjoy putting outfits together, and it turns out, Im not half bad at it. Sooooooo, I called up my friend, Jackie (check out her blog here), and asked her if she would want to collaborate on some shoots (she would do the makeup, and I would style). Luckily, she was pretty excited about the idea and had already had wanted to do a shot with an "anime-ish" makeup theme. Immediately I started pulling clothes from mine and my sister's closets with the question: "What if Sailor Moon took a trip to Manhattan during fashion week?" repeating over and over in my head. The result? What I like to call "Uptown Anime".
