Wu Feature History - Kayleigh (2012)

The following is part of a series of blogs that will look back at all the feature sets from Soles of Silk that have appeared on Wu's Feetlinks and the girls who made them a success. Carmen got the ball rolling in 2006 and every year since, Soles of Silk has had a set featured on Wu's Feetlinks - the most recent of which stars Aspen. In the last entry we saw Ryan make her grand debut. This time around, Kayleigh brings her "A" game on the school bus...

Model: Kayleigh
Shoe Size: 5.5

When Wu came to me about doing another feature set in 2012, Kayleigh was without a doubt, the obvious choice. Since her debut sets, which were shot the very day she turned 18, she has been one of the most dependable models I ever had. She loved being the one to represent Soles of Silk on this go around. And I think it was well deserved.

In addition to her dependability, Kayleigh has always been creative when it comes to her sets. When we used to work together she'd always throw around countless ideas for future shoots. It was no surprise when I told her she was picked to be the site's feature girl in 2012, that she wanted the set to be unique. We had months to plan and I don't even remember how many ideas we tossed around.
If I remember correctly it was early May when we came up with an idea to do a set using a school bus. Kayleigh knew someone who could give us access to a bus and that's when we knew we had it. Plus, with the set scheduled for June, it made perfect sense for a "school's out" theme. We even added the book bag and binder - complete with a shout out to Wu, on the front.
Once Wu posted the set I got a lot of feedback. So many people loved the setting and theme, which Kayleigh and I appreciated. And of course, those tiny little feet earned a ton of comments all by their lonesome.
