Finallllly a new shoot. I've been busy lately with all kinds of stuff, like I shot backstage at the West 18th Street Fashion Show recently, and I'm starting several other projects. My birthday was on the 25th. I didn't do much other than go thrifting and vintage clothes shopping, but my mom did buy me the Lonely Lingerie bra above. I guess I just exhausted myself every single day I shot this by gluing each and every one of those goddamn eyelashes on individually. I don't even want to think about it. The whole month of June is just a blur to me.
