Step it Up

My kid brother claims that I’m the only human on Earth obsessive enough to play wardrobe tetris so meticulously and even more often.

What is it about flatlays that are so addictive? My kid brother claims that I’m the only human on Earth obsessive enough to play wardrobe tetris so meticulously and even more often. Yesterday, I quite literally stepped it up with my head on the ceiling to shoot a full look – not just the accessories. And, per Instagram demand, here are all my product credits for your crying bank accounts:


  1. Cameo Feel It All Morocco Moroccan Leaf Top
  2. Cameo Hold Up Shorts
  3. Valentino Rockstud Flats
  4. Club Monaco Hat from Shopbop
  5. Karen Walker and Le Specs Sunglasses
  6. Urban Ears Headphones
  7. Palm Beach Collection Candles
  8. Aesop, Sodashi, TOM FORDL’OccitaneGrown, and Charlotte Tilbury Beauty

I’m going to buy a step ladder.
