This past Saturday I had the opportunity to take advantage of one of the most beautiful days ever in the best way possible! I climbed aboard The Sarah Marie and Cap'n Steve Fante took our motley crew on a fantastic excursion up the Ohio River to a place with an awesome history that has been forgotten for years and has almost entirely disappeared: Rose Island.

This 'photoventure' included photographers Andrew Kung, Allie Filley and Jordan Cox. We frolicked through the woods and ruins, witnessed a breathtaking sunset and the brave donned a HUGE rope swing into the river (video coming soon!). While on the island We did a magical photoshoot in some beautiful historical areas.

Here is a brief video that is the intro of the full length one coming soon. Enjoy and stay posted for the full length feature!

If everyone is only half as excited as I am, then you should be jumping up and down! The Lexington Fashion Collaborative (the same amazing group that brought us Future of Fashion) is bringing FASHION'S NIGHT OUT to Lexington!!

Now if you read the fashion bible (aka VOGUE) regularly, then you are probably familiar with this event. If not, then here is an overview: Fashion's Night Out is a global initiative in partnership with American VOGUE and the CFDA to bring together fashion retailers and all lovers of fashion to provide awareness about what your town has to offer! Stores participating in this event are usually open until 11PM! This is great because is gives people who normally would have a chance to get out during business hours, time to shop shop SHOP! What a fantastic economy booster!

TIME: 6pm - 11pm
PLACE: 903 Manchester Street, Lexington Ky 40507 (Next to Buster's)
