When I was 14 years old and myspace made an impact on who I was and the music I listened to, I stumbled on a band called "The Devil Wears Prada". I even had the display name Crystal [Wears Prada] at some point. Anyway... I fell in love. I went out and saw the boys in 2007 at The Foundry in Joplin Missouri, and again there a year later. Following that, I saw them again in 2009 the day With Roots Above and Branches Below came out at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa Oklahoma. Then, within the following years, I saw TDWP in Dallas, Grand Prairie, and San Antonio, Texas. Finally, last night, I saw them again in Dallas. NEEDLESS to say, I have been a huge fan of this band, and have adored who they are and what they stand for for over a decade. However, Last night was special. It was the first time I got to take photos of them. I am so fortunate to be able to see my favorite bands and take photos of them. The Devil Wears Prada shaped who I am today, and I thank them so very much for the impact they have made on me today.
Here are a few photos from my past from age 15, 16, and 17 -- wearing some of my favorite Prada merch. I really hope you enjoy this because I am embarrassed. I have attached a few of my favorites from last night as well, the rest can be found in the client portion of my website.
