topshop day 1

When Topshop contacted me to be their "fashion blogger photographer" for their 1 year anniversary celebrations I was pretty psyched.
I had a vague idea of snapping pics in a corner and I heard there'd be tea & cake.

I had no idea what I was in for.
3 days and one night of a NYLON party later...I am exhausted but exhilarated and totally giddy. What a crazy and amazing gig. Thanks Alicia & everyone at Topshop!

I learned a few things:
People LOVE to get their picture taken. Jumping is a big thing, and if you have an umbrella as a prop people will LOVE it.
Apart from not owning any kind of footwear that is in aaaaany way near approps for standing 8+ hours at a time (the MARGIELAS were the best bet!!)..I think I am not bad it this kind of thing!

I had a great time. I had a dope lil' crew: Ryan my digitech guy and Krista and Theresa the hot crowd control/release paper giver outers/good vibes makers.

So many awesome and cute and cool WL readers came by; they brought me candy and we took pics together and they all bascially made my day.And to my friends (and mom!) who braved the hordes of Soho to come say hi: I heart you guys, big time.

THERE ARE SO MANY PICTURES! I shot like, 5-600 a DAY! I have been told that all of them will be uploaded to Facebook (not by me) and so I am just picking favorites to put here.
SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO here is some of the best of Day 1:

And now for my Day 1 WINNER: Michael St. Rose !
This kid killed me. That hat, his head half bleached, shaved eyebrow, microphone jangle and those crazy sneakers. I LOVE the first pic. There were somany good ones..but he was sorta SPESH, ya know?

Good lord that took forever to get up; how do those of you with realllllly photo heavy blogs live your LIFE?? Are you just uploading shit ALL DAY LONG? Wowslers.

Tomorrow: Day 2's highlights and winner! (Spolier..it's a girl and she is in one of the collages I made in my earlier post!)

Special thanks to ADF for lending me equipment and being a top shelf friend.

This was such a cute idea. Nice to see some of the images posted. Thanks for taking my photo when I went!

And yes, you're right about uploading! I have a photo based blog, and I feel like I spend half my life posting photos.

when were these taken? I'm pretty sure I saw the girl in the 15th and 16th picture (gray jacket/poncho with the round glasses and bright red lipstick) last friday at beacon's closet. xD
but these picture were pretty awesome
