My Tops List for 2011

Posted on | December 22, 2011 | No Comments

Oh hey blog! Long time no… Don’t give me that look. I was all over the dang place playing YOUR Holiday parties! Anyway.

The year is coming to a close! It’s been the craziest year of my life. That’s really all that I can say. A look back at my blog will prove that but also personally… man. Nuts.

One thing that has been really awesome about this year is all the collaborations I’ve done with other artists. As someone who is a ‘business’ (<-- loose term) it's really wonderful for me to get together with people who are also trying to build their own little empires by being talented and driven. In whatever way. Music, jewelry, shoes, clothes, chopsticks... it's rad to see people doing what they love. So without further adieu, here are some of the awesome people who I think you should support in 2012!
Castles Couture

Caroline Castle made me an awesome outfit for my birthday show at the Whiskey! I’m wearing the boyfriend sweater and cheekies (more on the cheekies in a minute.)

If you look closely you can see the cheekies through my white sweater (but don’t look too close, u nasty!) …but they are one of my favorite things and I wear them all the time!





























Mill No.7

For HearNC… I worked with Celina Chapin from Mill No. 7 on a dress for the festival. Unfortunately, on the day of the show, I ripped the back of it Hulk Style. (It was actually because I had already put my shoes on and my heel got caught whoops) But this is the dress!

Oh, yeah. Mill no 7 is an upcoming fabric and design company based out of Chapel Hill, NC.
















Here’s a full length of the dress MySpace style.














Ron Liberti

Now this. This was one of the highlights of my year. Before I started playing music professionally…and was awkwardly playing my little songs every six months in a loud coffee house, it was common knowledge that if Ron Liberti did any artwork for you– you were on your way. I would drag my guitar case up Franklin Street here in Chapel Hill and would look for Ron Liberti show flyers– handmade prints that were one of a kind designs. I got drunk on free wine at art show after art show where Ron’s stuff was being shown… And now my time has come! *victory*
Ron designed the poster/t-shirt design for HearNC this year and guess whose name is all over it?!

(Hint: It’s mine.)

























Here’s a funny story for you: I had never met Ron before HearNC. We were watching Animal Alphabet and standing side by side when he leaned over and whispered, “Long live Freakers, right?!”
It was right in the middle of the whole Urban Outfitters scandal (read more about that here) and so we just went on about how much UO blew.

So that’s a small list of (some) of my favorites!!
Happy Holidays!!

(And yes, the rest of the pictures have been filtered by Instagram. I’m super obsessed. So if you happened to see your feed fill up with pictures of me cam-whoring… I’m sorry. I didn’t know how else to edit and save them!)
