Over five years ago myself and three other editors founded Auxiliary Magazine as a magazine for alternative fashion, music, and lifestyle. I had been shooting alternative fashion editorials for a while and couldn’t find the perfect outlet for them, so we created one. Since then I have had the privilege of working with countless photographers and writers and featuring countless designers, artists, and musicians. It has been a great five years!
To get Auxiliary to the next level and to send the magazine to print, we are pre-selling subscriptions via Kickstarter. Kickstarter is the best known crowd funding website and a great way for artists and musicians and other creatives to independently fund their projects. The Kickstarter is the first time Auxiliary has offered subscriptions and one of the rewards for backing is the first Auxiliary Magazine T-shirt, it’s very exciting for us!
Please consider backing and getting a digital or print subscription. You’ll see my photography (plus my editing, art direction, styling, and writing skills) in each issue plus tons of other amazing work from many other amazing creatives. There are only five days left to back so get all the details, watch the video, check out our rewards packages, subscribe, and help spread the word!
For a long time I have wanted to better document my wardrobe, style, and day to day outfits. I love seeing others’ style on blogs and find what we choose to wear can add fun, flavor, and well style to our lives. I also hope this exercise will encourage me to dress up and play with my wardrobe a bit more. I find being so busy sometimes I gravitate to comfy and easy and put my creativity into styling outfits for editorials and conceptualizing fashion features for Auxiliary. That creativity doesn’t always make it to my personal outfits and style. Hopefully this will help me take my outfits up a notch more often than not!
After a date night with my boyfriend we randomly stopped at the Japanese Gardens, right before the rain. to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. I took some photos of the blossoms and this is what I wore.
