We're happily reminiscing over the featured fashion spread in our very first print issue: "Poetry in Motion," inspired by the secret life of Emily Dickinson. On a misty, cold April morning in 2013, we scampered about with the amazing women of The Weaver House on their rustic Northwest farm, reveling and getting lost in the ethereal, imaginary storyline. And it seems you couldn't get enough of the dreaminess as well!

Last fall, we posted a #TBT image to model Meredith Adelaide's gorgeous, windswept up-do from the shoot. From the request of you, dear readers, we're bringing you a step-by-step video tutorial on how to create the look for yourself, with the help of none other than the beautiful Meredith Adelaide herself, who joined us almost two years later. Yay for reunions!
