Bella Bellota

I am sooooo excited to share this project with you! One of my best friends, Jahlelah Francia, has started her own Etsy shop named Bella Bellota... beautiful acorn.  I have always known her to be creative but this specific talent of illustration was undisclosed to me, and perhaps even to her until fairly recently.  She has so much natural talent and such a gorgeous aesthetic that we all get to wear now on soft cotton tees, tanks, and sweatshirts!

I must admit that I would be eager to get behind my friends and support them even if I wasn't stoked on the project, because that is what friends do.  Therefore I am doubly stoked on Bella Bellota because my amazing, sweet, beautiful friend is behind it, and because the product is SO GOOD!

I took photos of the first batch of shirts that she ordered.  Jahlelah didn't have super high expectations on the first order... it was in her eyes an experiment.  The experiment has brimmed over mere success.  Everyone who has seen the clothes or had the privilege ;) of modeling them has fallen in love with the designs.  A local top-tier boutique/consignment shop called Three Sixty Ecotique bought all six of Jahlelah's designs and is currently displaying them in both their display windows.  No one deserves this success more than Jahlelah.  I am honored to be the first to photograph them and I hope to continue to do so!

Yay for amazing friends doing amazing things! I love you Jawlz!!!
