A Wes Anderson Collage...

Anyone who knows me well is acutely aware of my fanatical adoration of Wes Anderson. 
Wes (I'm on a first-name basis with him, though he is in no way privy to this) is able to manifest any and all of my fantasy aesthetics into flawlessly executed and choreographed films that make me laugh audibly, make my cry listening to 
The Kinks anthology, make me purchase mustard-colored suede jackets from Goodwill, and make me physically angry that I'm not in some way involved with seeing them through to fruition. 
Not only do I cherish my Criterion DVDs (I apologize if DVDs are antiquated/offensive to you) of his work, but I own every Wes Anderson Collection book, and the illustrated screenplay for Grand Budapest. 
If there's an article written about Wes or an interview conducted with him floating in cyberspace,
 it's safe to assume I've read it more than once. I'd be embarrassed writing this if it weren't for the fact that I'm mostly just proud that I like anything with this much unbridled enthusiasm. 
I'm not even entirely positive that I like myself as much as I like Wes Anderson.
That said, yesterday I had some time to kill and decided to make a little shrine to Wes. 
I had a lot of fun picking tiny elements from his films to craft into this collage.
I hope you have fun identifying where each item was plucked from!

Amanda Lynn for Faelyn

I had so much fun planning this shoot for Faelyn's ballerina bodysuit!
Faelyn is an eco-friendly and ethically produced lingerie brand based in Brooklyn NY.
Their garments are made with all sustainable materials and low-impact dying processes--
making their dreamy pieces all the more special!
Be sure to visit their site to check out their full line of beautiful and thoughtfully crafted lingerie.

For this shoot, I wanted to create something inspired by Valley of the Dolls, Bettie Page, Vargas girls, 
Priscilla Presley, Brigitte Bardot--something that embodied an ultra 60s feminine energy!
With an all-female team, we had a really fun day listening to records, playing dress-up,
and shooting photos. I hope you enjoy browsing these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
