I read this book called "skinny bitch" and it's ruined me! I thought it would be a no nonsense skinny guide but it tricked me and was about becoming vegan! It had all these stories about animal cruelty and the gross way that they slaughter the animals and now I feel sick when I think of meat! I AM RUINED! RUINED I TELL YOU!!!! I am/was one of the biggest meat eaters for far and wide but now...... who knows? Will I ever be able to over come this illness? I have began to enjoy the taste of veggie sausages and even the thought of my mum's oxtail makes me feel queasy.
I am definitely not going to read any books about the fur trade because I will need my vintage fur for the New York winters ahead.
I took this pictures about 6 months ago, they were for a Nylon contest which consisted in taking a shoot
that could get the cover of one issue, the prize: a double pass for a Nylon party with the misshapes!!!. It was so much fun taking
this photos, and for me, of course, creating the outfits. The location was very simple but perfect fot what I wanted, we took
them in my best friend´s school.
It the end WE WON!!!!! so we 3 went to the party next friday, I was so excited when I got the email.
Well I wanted to share part of this work with you,(and I said part because in total there were like 480 shoots!!! )Very tiring
I must admit, but It was really worth it.
So do you think I could get the cover of Nylon mgz?(just kidding)
Kisses and so much love
