Today I’m relaxing and catching up on some reading. I have been thinking what a great month May was and wanted to recap a few of the major moments! Here is what I did in May..
May 5: Coordinated and modeled in a photo shoot for the MS Society’s “Preakness at the Piazza.”
May 13: Wore this outfit for a #PreaknessStyle segment promoting the MS Society’s “Preakness at the Piazza” on PHL17.
May 14: Wore my new hat to a store party at HOME.
May 15: Got fitted for a custom dress shirt at Indochino’s pop-up shop. Did you read my interview with Adrien Grey?
May 19: Posed in a photo shoot for my t-shirt collaboration with ARTC Creative. More info coming this Tuesday!
May 29: My four accessory musts for summer 2013 posted on Racked!
May 30: Modeled for a campaign, but can’t disclose what it was for yet!
Hope you had a great May, too! More IANstagram moments HERE!
Summer is soon here; buy more bright whites and blues! 611 Lifestyle clothing brand recently released a new collection of dress shirts and kindly gifted me the “Blueberry Bowtie” shirt. This weekend I was inspired to model it with a new pair of blue pants. Check out my look below!

Kristen Athena is who I like to call the “Karlie Kloss of Philadelphia.” This woman is in most of the fashion social media campaigns to come out of Philly. When not dominating the PA model scene, Athena can be found at photo shoots in NYC, hair shows in Miami, and other cities owning her image.
What’s happening now: Athena just finished shooting look books for a handful of designers including Marina Makaron Moscow and Tough Luv Clothing. She’s looking forward to shoots in warm weather and her magazine features in Gothic Beauty, Meuse, and Ellements magazines.
Ian Michael Crumm: What did you eat for breakfast?
Kristen Athena: Yogurt with berries and an apple-cinnamon and oats compote
IMC: Whose shoes are you wearing?
KA: Charles Jourdan, vintage white leather slingback with a black wool cap toe
IMC: What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
KA: Buying shoes that are expensive and impractical!
IMC: Where were you last night?
KA: Tippling Place, having craft cocktails with one of my menswear aficionados
IMC: What do you wear to bed?
KA: Diamond earrings and Obsession by Calvin Klein
She was also at the photo shoot I styled a few weeks ago! HERE ARE THE IMAGES
On June 15th, 2013 Lancôme will launch a new make-up collection with Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz. This is exciting for me since I have been following Elbaz’s career for a while. Back in high school I drew him for an assignment (I must dig that photo up). His fashion video for H&M has inspired many projects of mine. Be on the lookout for Elbaz’s latest collaboration.

London based brand Ostwald Helgason was founded in 2008 by Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason. The bold colors and cheeky prints form their latest collection caught my eye. Giraffes and crocs juxtaposed with bright fabrics. A spring must for the fashionistas in my life!
