Sorry for the lack of posts this week–it’s been busy in the THP office! We got this great studio space last minute and shot about 6 looks for the upcoming June ’13 lookbook. Everything is in black and white with a leather piece thrown in there for good measure. I’m really excited for this lookbook because I think it really represents me on a day-to-day: lots of black and white, some mini skirts, and of course– token baggy leather trousers. Again, everything will be affordable, coming in at under $200 dollars. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, check out the THP SHOP– there are still a lot of great things available!

Like a moth to a flame, I am back for another round of sale season shopping. It’s terribly predictable, but as my shopping mantra goes, invest in the stuff you always like. In my case, that evidently means leopard, leather and a whole lot of Alexander Wang. General rule of thumb: if it’s been in your cart or your favorites since last autumn, get it. You’ll most likely not regret it.
Love these jeans. Still one of my favorites from the THP Shop May ’13 look book. These have sold out twice already on the shop and are back on preorder, available here. You can see the original post here worn with the Galactic Neoprene Sweater.
Also, I think I’m going to take way more photos for the blog using instant cameras. These two taken with an Instax. The previous post, taken entirely with a couple of expired kodak disposables. TAKE THAT DSLR!
P.S. Isn’t that crab just awesome? Saw him outside my hotel and knew I had to have a pic.
Vietnam was a blur of sensory explosions. This being my first time, I was completely blown away by the food, the people and the sights. In the city of Saigon, there were places and smells that reminded me of Paris. From the white walled art deco apartments to the crispy baguettes served right out of the oven. One might even forget they were in Asia for a moment, if not for the pagoda or say, Chinese temple just two blocks down the way. Three hours away from the bustle of the city, was Mui Ne, the beachy town where we shot the entire THP Shop May’13 lookbook. Surfers, sun worshipers, and locals alike mingled in this balmy mini-paradise from dawn to dusk. The full moons here were beyond super natural, and the sun rises equally so, making those impossible 7 am call times almost enjoyable. Reminiscing about Vietnam makes me ache for the place and I can’t wait to go back to do it all over again.

Drama on the slopes. We got here early enough on this day to be the first footprints. This place was all sorts of magical and bewildering. Blurry sloping hills against a sky of swirling blues and greys. It was unimaginable. Just pure magic. The mental picture I took of it as well as it here captured in pictures still blows me away.
Another goodie from the THP Shop May’13 lookbook. One of my favorite finds, this faux leather laser cut vest has just enough structure to hang off the body oh-so-right. I wore it here with an old mesh tank top, but it’s also great styled with a crop top (styled like here). More balmy, tropical pics after the jump!
Nothing like working out in 40 degrees Celsius weather. I love this place even more because it’s called Papaya gym. Aren’t the colors just ridiculously awesome? There were actually people here already when we were shooting at 8:30 in the morning. Gotta love that commitment. Another look from the THP Shop May’13 lookbook. More pics after the jump –>
A literal oasis–this place was other worldly. The water lilies lining the banks edge were this incredible chartreuse color, that in direct sunlight created these blue and green halos on the water’s surface. We could have sat here for hours, just doing nothing. There was no one anywhere. Just us. This is another look taken from THP Shop May’13 Lookbook shot down in Mui Ne, Vietnam.
This is the cover outfit of the THP Shop May’13 lookbook, taken just a stone throw’s away from the beachy town we lived in. It was 7:30am in the morning, 40+ degrees Celsius outside with a balmy factor of probably 100%+; we thought we were literally going to melt under the sun. These were perfect conditions though to wear these overalls, another piece that is going to be a summer essential for me!
Shot along the main Mui Ne strip, the sun was just setting, diners weren’t descending upon the seafood shacks quite yet, and for a moment time stood still in paradise. This was the last look of the THP Shop May’13 Lookbook.
