Keeping It Cool

Freshly fallen snow, snowcaps on a mountain top, white fluffy clouds, (no, I’m not hallucinating or worse, wishing for winter)— these are the images I had dancing in my head recently when I photographed Philosophy’s Fall 2013 Collection.

How lucky am I?!! I was already on the hunt for my own sizzling shade of red when M asked me to road test my favorite find for the Daily. So, I marched myself down Michigan Ave. and made my way to the Estee Lauder counter at Chicago’s Neiman Marcus. That’s where I met Ken. (Don’t get any ideas…) What can I do for you? He had a curious look in his eyes. So curious I wondered if he was dying to wipe off my entire face and start from square one. Well, I’m really just looking for the perfect red...
