Happy Tuesday Beautiful People!
I gotta tell you about another Beautiful cause out there that is about Changing the Story....For those of you who are still buying you're V-necks at American Apparel...you need to stop ;) Cause theres a new kid in town with a cause!!! ever/after is a beautiful, California casual clothing brand right here in Newport Beach, CA. Besides having simply awesome baby v-necks for the kiddo's and 'rents the foundation of ever/after is "Change The Story". They donate 25% of every item you purchase to the cause of your choice. With the purchase of some basic kids clothes you can "Change the Story" in a childs life in Santa Ana, Africa or Mexico. Cool deal eh? They have kicked off a campaign asking "How do YOU change the story" and they featured REWRITE BEAUTIFUL! It's so rad that so many people are stepping up to redefine "Beautiful" and what "ever/after" looks like... Check out our story on their blog here (and send in your own BEAUTIFUL story!)
REWRITE BEAUTIFUL Woman knows some very awesome people who are friends with some very awesome photographer like Kyle Lightner. Lightner who works with primarily film photographs and doesn't believe in photoshop, retouching and making everyone look like a CHANEL ad will be shooting photos for the REWRITE BEAUTIFUL website and info materials.
All we can say at the REWRITE BEAUTIFUL head quarters is "Dude, what a God shot." I mean come on, who shoots in film anymore? And what photographer in this day and age doesn't believe in photoshop? And also believes that messy is better than perfection? It all totally lines up with the REWRITE BEAUTIFUL vision in a "Yep, we're on the right path" kind of a way.
We have talked to a few photographers who have wanted to help out REWRITE BEAUTIFUL, but so far it seems like, Kyle Lightner is the chosen surfer dude with a Cannon.
Ciao till tomorrow kiddos!
