Latest collaboration with Cara Santini. I was lucky enough to meet Cara for a project she murdered for Afends in the middle of the supersitions floating on cast iron sissy bars and PBR. I sent her a few pieces and I'm kicking myself for not just sending my entire stock becuase every god damn photo she takes is a dream. Small Southwest world as usual my favorite Arizona raised model Eden popped up in these! Thank you babes! xo Items for sale in our Etsy and Depop shops!

FOX AND OZZY
Arizona, specifically Apache Junction is a magical white hot Mars inspired trailor park of inspiration. This film collaboration with Richard Douglas was an ode to the last days of our outside capabilites. The Summer here is nuclear, and I often compare it to the East Coasts winter blues. We sit tight in our air conditioned layers and stare blindly out the window until October. So this shoot became a bright delirium and an "I give up sun" kind of vibe. Richard and I shouting YAAAAAS on the side of the road and discussing how growing up out here has its side effects. I love this place and the people it spits out. So here's to the Desert machine!

Kailas and I met a few years past when I had only been signed for a short time and accepting editorial payment in the form of pot cookies. Fast forward a few years, he's been kicking major ass in New York and I'm now a vintage pushing mom who makes inappropriate Metallica stripper jokes when I see film from his earlier shoot in the day. It's cool, we both laughed. I met him at Hotel San Carlos after a Fox morning and evening bar shift. My hair and makeup department was hotel tap water under the eyes to wake me up and a nice gaze that comes with shooting at 2 in the morning. Kailas pulled a fancy amount of modern pieces. I dropped dusty F&O layers where I could and we shot and jumped on things until someone told us not to. Catch the editorial on http://dnamag.mx/freedom-summer/
A collection of behind the scenes film shot while styling for photographer Kailas in town from NY -www.kailasphotography.com. I ran around with a disposable and safety pins keeping Jeanne from The Agency Arizona stellar in our vintage and a mix of Chanel and Marc Jacobs. Hair by Jenny from the always inspiring www.theconfessionsofahairstylist.com and Diane Aiello on makeup - www.glamlounge.net. The vast wasteland of Apache Junction can be just as vastly inspiring. Locals kept it interesting with their loud cars and dusty grins.
Our most recent collaboration with Joseph Maddon was a last minute drift through Arizona's cotton fields and freeways. Sometimes too much can go into a shoot and that hangout, that moment is lost. I asked Joseph if he would be into shooting in the morning and by afternoon I had grabbed what I felt like wearing that day, my son, and some chap stick and there we were on the side of the 101. Joseph is able to go with the wander and that's part of why he kills at photography. Here is a mix of both Film and Digital from that November morning. I'm wearing a mix of personal basics and Fox & Ozzy Vintage. Check out more of the series within our Styling page and God bless the Desert.
Messy, gazey, blown out product shots, shot to perfection by Michele Lee over at www.presleyjude.com Modeled and Styled by yours truly :] It's a love drug googly eyed series that came to be in a storage home behind Michele's perfected historic Phoenix pad. I wanted heavy blow up your shit flash and she wanted to have a bad ass time as usual. We blared a disco station from upstairs and talked social construction to hair extensions. Michele thank you for this collaboration forever and ever!
Sometimes family heirlooms are lockets or sometimes they're irreplaceable Honda racing jerseys. My husband was kindly badass enough to suggest we use his late father's racing jersey while shooting on his favorite toy in the Superstition Desert. Photograph by Josh Reed and style by Taylor Sheridan. Arizona you will forever be kind to the lense and inspiration.
Inspired this Friday by our shoot with Josh Reed and Taylor Sheridan. There is something magic about wearing a shirt with more mileage than myself. This piece is an Independent T shirt that's skated more bowls than folds. The more tattered and thinned out the happier they seem to make me.
Jumping in. The water is cold and it looks pretty high but damn it we're going to smile the whole way down (in our case hopefully up)! Leaving the safety of my office gig is churning into a sincere compilation of self discovery, and yes this is going to get gross but I'll think of something cynical and funny towards the end. I found myself hanging back on creating this brand due to fear it would fall short in some way or that everything had already been done blah blah whine whine..
Then I pulled my head out of some heavy Mandy Moore song and realized all I want to create is a feeling of fun and rebelliousness, and THAT my blog reading acquaintances is nothing to be overwhelmed with. With that being said I'm leaving the office with a big F%$# YA! smile on my face determined to bring you some of the raddest vintage grabs found only in the no man's land areas of Arizona. And while your wearing that distressed Harley Tee (you're welcome for finding and parting with) keep your kids crazy eyed with Fox & Ozzykids A line I am currently developing with fresh blood shot eyes as a young mom with one hell of a bad ass baby boy.
Even if that water stays cold and the lifeguard yells at me for running.. I'll be with my boys, and that is the real safety I found I was leaving everyday by not creating this business. Cheers xo
Disposables I caught of Natalie..
