It’s hard to believe I’m only just now posting a brand spotlight featuring Show Me Your Mumu, considering my first ever photoshoot [ if you can even call it that! ha! ] was with Mumu years ago in Austin, TX when I was a college freshman. I had just gotten settled in Austin after moving from Chicago when the Mumu girls came into town on their first “college tour”. They needed another gal for their “festival style” look book and asked me to join! I was so nervous and super intimidated…I’d never had my picture taken professionally before, especially not photos that were to be used on the website of one of my favorite brands.
Long story short, we piled into the Mumu rental car filled with clothes, accessories + shoes and rode around Austin, stopping to shoot whenever we saw a cool location. We drank drug store champagne out of SOLO cups and froze our butts off trying to shoot festival looks in fifty degree Texas winter weather.
I couldn’t believe how warm + welcoming the Show Me Your Mumu team was. At first I felt silly + self conscious, and had no idea what I was doing in front of the camera. But the girls were so encouraging + funny, and everyone made me feel so at ease. It was my first experience in the fashion industry and totally sparked my interest in styling and creating pretty photos. Now, all these years later, I’m living in LA and Mumu has skyrocketed to one of the most popular clothing lines around. Needless to say, we’ve both come a long way [ and still laugh about our first shoot together ]! The Mumu girls are still as sweet and fun as ever, their clothes are still made in the good ol’ U-S-A, and Penny has become a regular at the Mumu headquarters in DTLA 🙂
In this post, I’m wearing one of Mumu’s newest [ and my most favorite ] prints, but if you want to check out that shoot from waaaaay back when, click HERE!
