i used to live in bend, OR when i was 23. its funny, i didn't appreciate it enough at all when i did. and now going back , a bit older/wiser, i fell completely in love with it all over again. lucky for me, i kept some beautiful friends there. one of them is the owner of VANILLA URBAN THREADS. the gals asked me to do be a part of their holiday lookbook :) we went out to HOUSE ON METOLIUS and TES MILES styled me up with my babe TARYN KENT behind the lens.
