Scout's General at New York Fashion Week

Words + Pictures by Angela Cappetta

Scout's General is a new line by @Scout_Willis that focuses on body positive, fabulous-on-everybody, serious fashion. The kicker is that its all pretty affordable. The most expensive item in this season's lineup is a full length, 4 button merino coat that runs approx $800 retail. This means that these feel-good fabric designs by Scout Willis and Harold Kuhn are within reach to most women (and men).

I got to be the exclusive photographer to this day-long fashion show held at a secret loft in TriBeCa. During the day only those in the know came by to sip coctktails, see the clothes on the model and place orders. People like, ahem, Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week, and Scout's dad, Bruce Willis. “It’s like a little respite from fashion week where people can come and have a few drinks, have some scones, chill out,” Scout said.

You can read more about Scout and Harold's line in articles on Refinery29 and T Magazine with all pictures by yours truly. I am in love with a Katheryn Hepburn-esque, deep indigo gown that is a sheer silk shell and worn with a charmeuse slip underneath. Can't wait to order one!

Because Valentine's Day

Words + Photos by Angela Cappetta

We can't with these two. Just can't. These pictures say it all. Enjoy your Valentine's Day Proposal session shot at Flatiron and Eataly NYC and congrats to Gerald and Christina who came from Nashville for the holiday weekend. Gerald pulled out all the stops; he even got her a dress from Rent the Runway for the day (the excuse was so she'd have something special to wear to the theatre that night). Little did she know why. Here it is, in all its spontaneous glory; a classic New York City engagement proposal. Since no proposal would be complete without an espresso at Eataly NYC, that also happened.
