I recently had the pleasure of shooting with that amazing Hamilton clothing line GIRLSWITHGUNZ! The owner and designer Estee is a born and raised Hamiltonian, her line is edgy, colorful and feminine, bring that classic cool girl street style vibe. Her urban influences are really reflected in the clothing, the use of bold cuts, colors and patterns and the mixing of textures. I love how playful this line is and how much thought is put into each piece.
The outfit I am wearing is a bold orange oversized mesh tee with a large Evil Eye, I thought this was a really cool piece. It is very bold and I love the contrast of the orange with the blue eye. This top was paired with high waisted, flair cut orange pants (which I absolutely loved the fit of).
Estee was really amazing to work with! It was so cool to meet the girl behind a brand I had been following for a while now! Her line has already been met with so much success, but she is only getting started, we have so much more to see!
