Photo Series On Enjoying Life: Part III

Photography by So Does Estella

A Photo Series On Enjoying Life Part III

First off, thank you so much for all of the love surrounding the Pip & Estella pop-up shop! It has been a true labor of love. Each day I realize just how much I love my job! It gives me the chance to branch out into all of the areas that I truly enjoy.

This Thursday I had the pleasure of teaching a photo styling course at the Textile Arts Center in Manhattan as a part of fellow creative, Karen Young's (Hammocks and High Tea) small business courses. The students were amazingly creative and in turn they inspired me! This is what life is all about.

If you haven't been to the Textile Arts Center in Manhattan, you should definitely add it to your Fall list of things to do. It's a truly amazing space (as evidenced by the installations above) and great place for creative enrichment for disciplines spanning beyond fiber arts.

Will you be taking any classes this season? Or even self- teaching perhaps?

All work, all play

All Work, All Play

Long time no blog! How is everyone?

As you may have noticed, blog posts have been scarce around these parts as we ramp up to the launch of the Pip & Estella pop-up shop (More to come on that soon, I promise!) and work to meet holiday deadlines with our favorite magazines and new international retail partners.

And because things have been so busy, I had to bring on more hands. Two of those hands belong to Matt which everyone loved from my Station Wagon Conversation post. Not only is he incredibly talented, but we have a lot of fun at play too! Below is a shot of us at the Rue Magazine photo shoot for Old Village Hall in the East Village where we worked on food and floral styling. This actual shoot runs in Rue's Anniversary issue out tomorrow.

So, So Does Estella lives on -- just a little quiet as we push through the season's rush. I want to know what you all have been up to! What projects are you working on this Fall?

[Update; Here are more photos from the shoot on Refinery 29.]
