ReyLyf Fourth of July!

Yay spontaneous road trips! My mom and I went to Ohio to visit family during the holiday weekend.

SOME POSITIVITY FOR YOU

If you’re feeling discouraged, I’d like you to stop that. Just stop. Now.

Having  moved back home after graduating college, it’s easy to feel discouraged during the job hunting phase…especially if you’ve gone from living on your own to back with the family. (Love them to pieces, but it’s nice having your own place.) Sometimes it’s also easy to feel discouraged by your geographical settings. I know seas of corn don’t exactly scream opportunity for myself, but for others it may! Your mind is also an infinite resource. 😀

Also, stop the comparison. Because your story isn’t going to be the same as anyone else’s and that is a beautiful thing.

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.

-Milton Berle

Perhaps I’ve been motivated by some discussions with some great people whom I’m very lucky to call my friends, and some projects we’ll be working on together. (More details coming later! :P) But it’s important to know that inspiration can be everywhere and that opportunity is yours to create.

Chart your path, and execute your dreams. Take no prisoners. Love,

Rey

Project: Latex Dress

I know I’ve been obsessing over this latest video project I’ve been working on, so much so that I’m attempting to make a latex dress for the video shoot! The whole video is a concept of liberating yourself, finding empowerment through fashion, and celebrating yourself. Last night I got to try a fitting with my friend (& model for the shoot!) and she’ll be wearing a latex dress that I’m making! She asked if there was a sketch or something she could look at, and for once I’m doing it all by mental imagery. (Sometimes my hands don’t draw what I see in my mind, XD, so hopefully they can just make the finished product!)

Here is where it’s at so far; basic steps. However, I’ll hopefully be finishing it up today after I get more materials!

In the studio and with a clean backdrop, I think this will turn out beautifully! I can’t say exactly what inspired this, other than a collection of imagery in my head as well as some Fall 2014 RTW runway pieces; that and imagining my model wearing it. You can find the finished product in my video coming out soon! (Not the one for this week on my channel lol! >_<) Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Love,

Bill Cunningham New York

This past weekend I went into a fashion film craze. I scoured Netflix for more fashion and more films, and in my search wound up stumbling upon Bill Cunningham New York (link to IMDb). Having very little knowledge of who this man is, and what he does, I immediately fell in love with his story, his passion, and his drive. Bill works for the New York Times and publishes articles of his photos of fashion on the streets of New York. He’s ballsy too, running backwards into on coming traffic just to get the right shot; let alone walking the streets of a city with a camera pointed at seemingly unexpected strangers. He does what he wants with his vision and just goes for it. Guts. I would highly recommend this film; and have done so to a friend I though would enjoy this due to his love of photography (you can follow him here!). 

 

Lately I’ve been so inspired, I hope you can feel some of that and spread it! 😀

Love,

Rey
