Gervin






 

The other day, I had the honor of doing a photoshoot with the awesome Gervin Macey, who runs the blog Jenne Chrisville. Gervin's motto is "Dress to express, not to impress" and it definitely shows in his varied and expressive outfit posts on his website! Among the many fashion bloggers out there today, Gervin's attitude stood out to me, and it was interesting to hear his perspective as we shot these photos. He mentioned that some people tend to lose sight of what they originally set out to do, by simply following the popular trends or sharing what sponsors offer them even if it makes no sense. Fashion should be about having fun, expressing yourself and being free, not having to dress based on the expectations of others. Just like music, it's not always easy when a large portion of society out there appears to think one way is "good" or "cool", bending people's tendencies and thoughts. But in the end, being true to yourself is most important, being comfortable in your own skin (and clothes)!

Gervin, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, and being an amazing model! I'm looking forward to meeting up with you again :)
