Rue Does Texas

Have you seen the latest issue of Rue Magazine yet? It’s the Texas issue, y’all! And that’s our* shot on the cover. Yee haw!

When Rue’s EIC, Crystal, first tasked us with producing a Texas-themed fashion story, I’ll confess that we were a little thrown. What did we know about Texas or Texas fashion? After we tossed around a number of ideas (admittedly a number of them involving denim and even horses), we started thinking about Texas as the home of Neiman Marcus. Once we embraced this angle, a whole ladylike-theme quickly emerged. They’re ladies, but they’re our kinda ladies.

You’ll have to head over to to see the story in its entirety  (pgs 66-85), but we’ll give you a little taste here with this AWESOME video by our new friends Chris and Kristen Barker of We Are the Barkers.

And here’s a few behind-the-scenes moments from what was one of the funnest days of shooting I think we’ve ever had!
