Free Heart: Anchor Tee Promo

Hunter and I recently bought a wide angle lens adapter for our camera, so of course we've been busy playing with it nonstop. On Sunday we explored the train tracks nearby to photograph Richard, a new friend. I'm so happy with how the images are turning out.

____________________________________________
The anchor tee is sold out at the moment, but I'm so excited to use these shots for promotion and the restock. Until then, we're working on so many new things AND I've got word that our promo video is finally ready to be viewed. I hope everyone is as excited as I am to see it.

Our lens adapter is the Neewer .45x super wide angle piece, available on Amazon for incredibly cheap (about $10). We were really surprised by the quality, which is fantastic for the price. If you're looking for a basic adapter (or even a temporary one), it really was a great purchase.
Let me know what your favorite go-to camera accessories are. xo, Kiki Michelle

Free Heart Clothing Preview

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have noticed a few very exciting posts the past few weeks. I've been working on starting a clothing line and our first printed design was a huge success. We printed 25 tees as a test and they sold out in about 3 days.
I've been patiently waiting to make a huge announcement and explain all the tiny details, but I'm honestly just too excited. I have a wonderful team of volunteer staff and models that have been helping get things organized for a full launch this fall and on Sunday we'll be shooting our first promo video. It features 3 designs including the Classic Anchor, modeled here by sisters Erin and Noelle. The video will also include the Festival Tee and Candy Hearts, shown below.

The video will be shot in Ocean City, MD by a good friend of ours, Candy Fortney and will feature 7 of our team members, Hunter, and myself. We're so excited and can't wait for you to see it! Once the project is completed, we'll be using it on a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money for a huge cold weather launch including crewnecks, beanies, and some Christmas-exclusive gifts. In the meantime we're developing and releasing our summer items. The staff favorite is the Fesitval Tee and is currently available for preorder on our webstore. Other items in progress include: pocket tees, iPhone cases, sunglasses, patches, pins, stickers, and so much more!

Here are a few of the concept images for the next year:

Nathan, one of our best friends, gifted me new vinyl that I'm VERY excited for.

1. The Academy Is... - Fast Times At Barrington High (Blue Marble)/2000

I also ordered myself Breath Carolina's Hello Fascination from MerchNow to add to my ever growing collection. What's your favorite album that's been released on vinyl?
