Prepping for a music video is so fun. Loren Maring, my stylist, among many other things, and I looked for clothes online for days. She ordered a BUNCH of stuff and some things were given to us (Shout out: Au Darling, Lane Boots, Lilli Dokken, Emma Gundlach). Then the wait begins. I think I checked our front porch for boxes about 20 times a day… then the boxes, full of clothes, shoes and accessories finally arrived. I made myself wait to open them until Loren got there so we could take these sweet pictures for you people ;)
Our Favorite Shops/Online Stores are:
The Outnet (for really nice discounted designer pieces)
Asos+ Nasty Gal (for really cool fun pieces)
UAL (a designer liquidation store here in Nashville)
Zara (for quality staples)
Au Darling, (amazing currated selection of clothes and most fit my brand perfectly…heart eyes!!!)
Lane Boots (I basically wore them with everything while shooting the video and while in Marfa just buzzing around town)
Custom, it’s always nice to have something made (like the bomber I wear in the music video). It gives us the edge of having a piece that no one else has. We had Emma Gundlach do the illustration and had this bomber made (see below). Loren cast the vision and art directed the piece. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined.
When the boxes arrive we try on every single item… we keep only what looks amazing and then start playing… and playing…and playing, until we both say OH MY GOSH THIS IS AWESOME and that becomes one of the outfits we keep for the video.
Meanwhile, the rest of the production team was hiring a local guy to play my fake boyfriend, finding me a sweet Ford to drive around Marfa, TX, location scouting, buying shoot licenses for the town of Marfa and getting all the details together for the shoot.
It was amazing, we got there and every single look fit the location it was paired with perfectly… I think somebody bigger than us was masterfully orchestrating the whole thing and I couldn’t be more thankful. I can’t wait for y’all to see it!
