I’m back in NYC after a whirlwind weekend in LA for the debut of CAbi’s Fall ’11 Collection (lots more details to come). The rest of the time I spent with friends who indulged me in photo shoots, among other things.

Here I am dancing with trees at the Viceroy in Santa Monica (DVF Fluerette Dress, Jil Sander heels, Theodora & Callum earrings, lia sophia bracelet last seen here, BCBG clutch, ring from Nest, Aaron Shelton hair, Gotham Glow tan).

I’m obsessed with fashion blogs and the creative ways in which people style and photograph their looks.  But for me I always wondered, “who the hell cares what I’m wearing?” and “won’t everyone want to punch me in the face when they find out how much I dropped on these shoes?”

But apparently you do and you don’t.

So…I’m excited to announce that I’m partnering with Nicole from Momtrends and Kristin & Megan from BonBon Rose Girls to host a fashion linky. We’ll rotate it every 3 weeks so if you’re a blogger, hopefully it will inspire you to put together some fun outfits and tell us what you’re wearing, and if you’re a reader, you’ll have plenty of style inspiration to browse for the week.

Since I’m not dating nor married to a photographer (yet) like the greats, you’ll have to put up with a lot of self-taken iPhone pics as well as “Dances with Trees” poses.  But it’s fun and inspirational so I’m willing to put myself out there, ridiculous poses and all.  Don’t laugh, promise?

Oh, and should my vogueing and penchant for expensive bags and shoes become obnoxious, just email me with the subject line, “GFYM.”


Thanks for the photos Aimee!

    Jill you look absolutely GORGEOUS in this dress and…I just love it the color works well on you and your pics are great. My husband isn’t a photographer either, so don’t feel bad..ha, but I do know what you mean!! I can’t wait to see more, but it’s such fun and I’m a sucker for reading and stalking what everyone else is wearing. It’s inspiration for other things I may not have thought of wearing in my own closet so I will most definitely be linking up.
