I GOT A NAME!

Hey hey hey!!!!!!!!!

Last time we’ve connected, we’ve been talking about the new exclusive boutique I will be launching!!!!! Very much in effect and blooming!!!! Yayyy! I know, I seriously have goose bumps! lol Working in fashion retail currently, I am¬†fascinated with the environment and experience that I’ve shared with my customers and my hungry fashion freaks! Aaahh, It’s love! I’ve been known to be claimed as the fashion super hero!! (okay, I’ve claimed that lol) Seriously warms my heart EVERY time to connect with my people and connect them with their long lost love (Garments)! LOL Clothes really aren’t just clothes to me.. their actually paintings, an extension of our souls and¬†character, we are the canvas and we are free to make the art! WOW, freaking amazing right?? Lol

Well anywho, LATEST UPDATE!? 

Inventory officially starts NEXT month!! I’ve changed some things around! I’ve stumbled upon the topic while reading this book, “Fashion Victim” by Michelle Lee, and in there I found out the billion TONS of clothing that are seriously buried under our grounds to sit for thousands of years to come! I seriously started tearing up, it’s really¬†a shame, when we have so many options from donating, recycling, renewing, re-using fabrics and etc. I’m most def am not a genius on this topic, but I’m learning more everyday, and I’ve made it my mission to hunt for these garments, and save their souls! I’ve noticed eco-friendly fashion tend to be on the rather….ugly side. Here I am to make that change, taking those steps towards providing one of kind, quality fashion clothing for my consumers lifestyle and saving the world at the same time! LOVE!¬†

I’m oooober excited!!!!!¬†

Now.. next update! YESSSSS! I got a nameeeeeee, Leanza’s Junk!!! whoo hoooooooooooooooo!

Quick, easy to remember (hopefully!!!) and catchy lol

 

Yes, I can see Leanza’s Junk¬†evolving along the years and all I can do is just keep going and praying! I owe it all to those critical factors!

 

Alrighty folks! Enough for today, until next time!!! who knows, you may get a sneak peak first at inventory!! STAY TUNED ūüėČ

 

P.S. PHOTO-SHOOT CASTINGS GO UP NEXT MONTH! =D

Double P.S… here are a couple Out of the the days I didn’t get to share in time!!! ENJOOOYYY!¬†

EXCLUSIVE vintage boutique COMING SOON!

Hello dear people!!! Happy Holidays and I hope all is well!!!

I have¬†intensely been researching and building my business plan this month for my future vintage boutique! With my eye and vision, and my passionate desire to servicing customers in the name of fashion, IT IS ONLY RIGHT!! I’ve made it official to launch my company in May 2013!! I’m¬†definitely starting off small and letting it evolve from there, all while still exceeding expectations!! My goal is to really engage with my customers and provide the exclusive vintage wear, and retro wear for the hottest trendsetters and inspiring all over the globe, inspired by yours truly..ME! =)

My online store will be catered to expressive hipsters/fashionistas from ages 15-25! Other ages are always welcomed as well!! Although the clothes will be catered to women, I will have plenty of unisex treasures for the men out there who want to also own the exclusive merchandise I will carry!

 

From hunting city to city for top notch unique wear, hand making accessories and setting up mind-boggling fashion photoshoots, preparing will be a real hoot!!! Of course I will keep you all updated with my progress!!

Now for the name!!! I most¬†definitely have the name, but I’m saving that juicy info for another random time!!¬† lol

 

Besides that… That’s about it… if you have any idea who’d be a great company to¬†receive business/retail supplies¬†from, don’t hesitate to drop that info below!!!

 

 

Thank you!!

=)

Pink Boots and a Payphone/Quitting Photography???

Hello hello hellooooo!!! How are you guys!!?

I have a couple awesome updates for you guys!!!!

Well first is first….. Photography…. Lately I seriously felt like I was losing my passion!! Can you believe it!??? But I had a hard look within myself and I realized it wasn’t fashion photography itself, it was just the business side to it! As an¬†entrepreneur reflecting on my personal goals, I didn’t get the fulfillment I needed¬†as a professional photographer. Yes I will always practice photography, but I believe entering fashion photography was my calling onto something BIGGER and besides I can most def use my photography skills and talent and add them to my store boutique!!!! ;D

 

I’m now researching and studying how to launch my own vintage online boutique!!! YES I said it!! I’m¬†definitely not in a rush here! I want to be sure before I start selling, I understand who I’m selling to and what resources are available to me!!! =)

 

I know I have what it takes to evolve this future company and share the true art in clothing with my fellow fashionistas around the world!!  Whoo hoooo!!  I definitely will keep you guys updated on my progress!

In the meanwhile… omg I haven’t done this in foreveeerrrrrrr!!

Miami Beach Welcomes Wilhelmina Models!

Hey there! I’ve been wrapped up since one of my last shoots right before turkey day! (Happy Belated Thanksgiving BTW! ūüėČ ) But I couldn’t forget to share the update! I was thankfully able to work with a couple wonderful models from Wilhelmina Models! ‚̧ It was kind of last minute since the models Julia and Christine, flew right in, and were flying right out, but it was a whiz of course! I fell in love with their look! The moment of the shoot, I knew working with models was truly a calling for me! I enjoy communicating with, sharing and directing models to find the shot and improve their skills, taking full advantage of their beauty, with the help of a wonderful strong team as well!! The shot is the¬†character¬†and attitude through the models body language, owning the mood of the story. I can tell helping models build their books is my thing! Well, duh! Especially since I do plan on owning my superb¬†modeling agency one day! =)

 

I can say I am so thankful for the growth and opportunities! I appreciate everyone who are a part of my journey! The negativity that comes along has to be dealt with PATIENCE and FAITH! I feel everyone chasing a dream must be realistic with¬†their self!! If you truly have the skills and talent, the passion and attitude, there’s really no stopping you, just have to keep practicing and wait.. =)¬†

I always do this, I just had to share with you!! lol Now back to the point!

 

Here are some of my FAVE shots from the shoot! Check out MORE on my FAN page on Facebook with an easy click!! Portraits By Leanza

 

P.S. Big shout outs and thanks to Make Up Artists J.C. and Matthew from ELIZA COSMETIC! As you can see they were awesome!! =)

Here they are!! Elite Photoshoot!!

Hey! Hey Heeey!! My lovely folks!! I have the final results from the shoot the other day and I want to share with you some of my top faves! It was simply amazing watching her grow and tell her story before my eyes! With me having the growing skills and talent to direct and capture her was simply SCINTILLATING!! So let’s cut to the chase and share some of the results and cross our fingers that the booker loves the photos of this budding model Nina Salci at Elite Model Management. Thank You to Make Up Artist Kristy Colon Andres!!! Shout Out to her and visit her Fan page on facebook!! =)

Hope you enjoyed!! If you want to see more of this exclusive shoot visit my fan page Portraits By Leanza¬†and please like my page either to your right ——>>>>> or when you visit my page!! Thank you!!! ‚̧

A Models BACK UP!

Soooo!! I was in the middle of writing a list of what I felt by experience were great to have as back up for a day of shooting, for models AND even for photographers! I really believe as much as you would like to put hope into your team, you just never know! Whether they bail, or have a genuine emergency, being prepared with back up cuts a ton on your shoulders! Plus it leaves a professional impression! Portraits By Leanza cares for her models (what I call my freelancing photography biz) =)

Sooo what is the list?? Well this general and vital list can range from team to team, but these are common sense and essential basics! LIKE:

  • Back up make up! You don’t have to have the whole kit compared to a pro mua (Make up artist), but¬†something is better than nothing! and on that note it’s an awesome investment for a model who WILL find herself stuck without an mua, but does that mean the show has stopped?! Hell NOO!
  • Make Up Remover– It is so stubborn to fix make up and not have this handy towelette available! Especially after a shoot when you want to just take it offfff! lol
  • Q-tips-¬†Nooo we’re not shooting inside your ears, but it’s an awesome cheap tool to applying eye shadows, lip color and/or even removing something precise! =)
  • Tissues
  • Face/body Lotion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot stand ashiness….nooooo I do not want to try to “photoshop” it, No! It should not be there in the first place people!
  • Pluckers- for stray hairs
  • Nail File
  • Pony holders/ Hair pins-¬†Lots of em!!!!!
  • Safety pins- Lots!!
  • Hair spray /sheen
  • Hair combs/Brushes
  • Large towel-¬†I’ve had experiences where a towel would be needed after posing on the ground or even as¬†fast dressing rooms! LOL I do have a portable changing room now, but when the model is down to make the process much quicker, those large towels are PERFECT!

So far those are the MAIN basics I believe save the day and are generally always NEEDED! It usually is pretty obvious a model must be shaven (NO HAIR is allowed on legs, underarms, etc!) No waaaaay! and HELL NO I’m not going to sit on photoshop¬†desperately¬†trying to take strands off, when it’s common sense it should not be there! Not cute! lol Also important to have various undergarments in nude, black, and white. Preferably underwear that doesn’t show pantie lines, and bras that are also strapless and/or have those 5 in 1 straps for¬†flexibility with clothing!

BUT the MOST important essential is bring your SMILE!!! A great attitude and POSITIVE personality ALWAYS calms the nerves, makes things go smooooth and sooo much more FUN!!!! Things happen, but in this industry and/or whatever your into, you MUST be able to adapt, think on your toes, and make the BEST out of each and every situation!!!

Now… what do you think I left out in the list and/or have you had an experience you would like to share??? I’m all for it!! Leave a comment and contact me personally on facebook!
