Tell us about the Stela 9 SS 2014 shoot! What was the inspiration? What was your favorite bag? I had a blast with the shoot. Everyone was so helpful with the photography, the filming, the styling, and bringing me veggie burgers. The idea was to show a day in the life of a Stela 9 girl (me!) visiting Antigua. The city is beautiful, so there was a lot to shoot. I love the new painted bolsitas. They are amazing. I cannot wait to get mine in red.
