Last month I met the fabulous and talented Marilyn Lamanna who is from Chicago. She is now going to school in New York so it's pure luck that I caught her while she was in Chicago. She and I decided to collaborate on a shoot and I mentioned my pink smoke fountains I had purchased on the 4th of July... who doesn't love smoke fountains? Of course she was enamored with the idea of a shoot featuring pink smoke fountains and my roof top! As soon as she came over it was as if we had already known each other for years and I asked her to pick out a dress from my closet. I also put some pink eyeshadow on her and did her eyebrows. I love doing makeup and wardrobe styling! We had so much fun. See Marilyn's blog post about our day here! All photos are by Marilyn with the exception of three I took on my roof top.
