Just the other night on June 7th a fashion show and Exhibit were held at Moca Art Gallery off Bennett street. Showcasing Abbey Glass and Megan Huntz Fall Collections, two of the most outstanding designers out of Atlanta. Factory Girls hosted the show at Moca. Factory Girls is a local fashion incubator for designers to grow through there resources and business experience.
I have had an amazing opportunity to have been interning for Abbey Glass since October of 2013. She is a truly awesome person and designer. I love working for her and seeing her creative process throughout the whole process. I learned a lot of work goes on between here and there. There being- getting the collection finalized and show cased. the drive she has is unbelievable, and the about of stress and pressure she is put on her is crazy how she is always cool, calm and collective. honestly her work speaks for itself, each of her collections are absolutely stunning. She has this old school modern touch to her with this great eye of portraying a story within her garments. That’s one thing I love most about her work she creates a story as a platform for her collections and goes from there into the creating process. Abbey looks at Medical slides and sees fashion. I think she is the next big thing of Atlanta and will touch the New York market shortly.
Some behind the scenes of the other nights Show!
Kissie and I had the pleasure of working with my friend Aspen Evans, a photography major at Scad. She has an amazing drive for what she does and goes over and beyond in all areas academics and with any work related feilds. She is 19 and is already a senior at Scad. She is interning at Factory Girls, Jezebel, College Fashionista, and Les Nouvelles as a photography intern. I have had the chance to work with her several times as well as intern at Factory girls with her. Click on the link below and check out her work : http://www.behance.net/AspenCierraPhoto
I (Scooby) am wearing a basic, sporty look I pulled pieces from affordable places to create this look. My Top was from the Basic line at forever 21 as well as the grey sweat pants. My shoes are from H&M, I love high tops because they add length to even out any missing gaps that pants create. I have been digging the sports wear look on the runway and through out the streets. I love how its fashionably expectable to pair dresses with tennis shoes and baseball caps.
Kissie is wering a basic White dress from forever 21, with a long sleeved crop top layered over top. She wore a basic black baseball cap to convey the sporty look. Then gave the look a more personal touch with her Huff socks and black Dr. Martens. This girl loves Dr. Martens she has collected two pairs but I’m sure the list will grow. Kissie is 17 and about to be a senior in high school she has a real eye for fashion. So follow her on Instagram @barefooted_kid.
Stay tuned to more street style shot by lovely Aspen!
Today we ventured to Candler Park for their Food and Music festival. It was a lot of fun and we gained a new favorite band, Family and Friends. They had such a free spirit to them and a passion about what they were doing it made you want more. The weather held off and made for a great day. Afterwards we got bubble tea Kissie’s favorite. In the process of parking we got honked and yelled at by some old Chinese man for parking in his spot. Other then that today was a grand day, we enjoyed seeing the creative souls of this city and other cities. Today we styled ourselves in festival wear, Kissie more neutral tones. Her Top was from Forever 21, Her shorts and necklace were from Forever 21 as well. Her fringe crochet vest was found at T.J Max. I went with a look that may come across as a little witch like haha but I was dressed in H&M and Thrifted items.
My good friend and favorite photographer Bob Wooley out of Atlanta, Ga shot these rocking shots. I always love having the pleasure to shoot with him because I think he has such a creative eye and style to his work. He loves to explore and create and sometimes goes into shooting without a plan but either way comes out with remarkable outcomes. His work speaks for itself. Check out his work at http://bobwooley.com/
May 17, 2014 my two sisters and I had a rather dashing time at party in the park together. It was a day full of adventures, Dead cell phones and stellar music like MGMT and Girl talk! We paid for over price food and drinks and left with a little bit of an empty wallet and a cool Mexican blanket. I enjoyed my company and the the sound waves as well.
Peace out brothers and sisters

Flowers for Mothers Day! April Showers bring May flowers, And mom Love Showers hehe.
I got my bag actually from a International festival in Savannah, Ga. It was from Ecuador, I absolutely love it!
We actually spotted the Queen Bee, She had a yellow dot on her back and she also was a quarter inch longer then the others.
The Dress featured above was actually made by me, and inspired by the 70’s. I took the pattern of a seventies dress to create the sleeves and for the shiftiness of the dress just took a good old walmart-New look pattern. For fun I messed with photo shop and zoomed in on the actual fabric to create the background.

Stack rings have been an obsession of mine lately and Ive recently expanded to Gold ones.
We ended our venture in little five points, where we ran into our good friends the nomads.
Jewelry Making in little five is a big thing with the girls and guys down there. Wire wrapping especially is the most stellar and unique work of art. I love seeing the creations of the creative minds down there!
This is our new friend we made Ronald hes been painting since the 3rd grade, and he is originally from New Orleans.
Little Five points- ” Were all here because were not there.”
READ MORE ABOUT KING OF POPS
“If you’ve heard a story about our beginnings, it was more than likely a tale of one person overcoming a corporate layoff or of a lawyer eschewing the courtroom for the kitchen. While both of these things happened, neither is the whole story…
King of Pops was conceived overlooking the beach in Central America many years ago. Three adventurous brothers, born of a fruit-smoothie-loving mother, were taking a break from a day of exploration to talk about life and love, but mainly paletas- the Latin American ice pops they had fallen in love with during their travels.
That trip would, as trips tend to do, eventually come to an end, but these three gringos never stopped dreaming of paletas. It became an obsession to bring these delicious fresh-fruit creations back home with them to share with the good people of Atlanta.
Eventually, the youngest brother, Steven, was a victim of massive layoffs at his employer, AIG. There were no more excuses not to follow his dreams and King of Pops was born. No longer laboring inside a cramped cubicle, Steven was now laboring inside his own cramped kitchen. With the help of his brother Nick (the lawyer), their family, and a handful of friends, he began to experiment with a variety of techniques and recipes in an effort to recapture the essence of those first pops he had enjoyed years ago.
After countless hours of trial and error, King of Pops opened its first cart, much like the ones that had inspired the brothers years before. The original Poncey-Highland location was a quick success and soon carts could be seen popping up (pun intended) at local farmers markets and festivals.
Eventually, all-night pop making sessions weren’t enough, and it was time for Nick to come on board full time. He decided to leave his stable job as a lawyer to work on what he and his little brother had dreamt together.
Today our team is growing and we have our own kitchen (some of us even have business cards now!), and we have enlisted close friends to spread our vision to nearby cities. Our goal, however, remains the same: to provide an ecologically responsible, fresh, all-natural frozen treat in a fun neighborhood environment.
We still toil late into the night in the kitchen and you can often find Steven slinging pops at that original Poncey-Highland location or (if you get up early enough) you can see Nick picking through fresh fruit at the farmers market.
We love making pops. We hope you love eating them.”
