I’ve always thought the word “anniversary” was a weird way to tag something terrible, and yet, here I am using it to talk about the first worst day of my life. In recent years, I’ve been pretty open about my experiences with sexual assault. Partly because the whole #MeToo thing happened, and partly because I started to understand the importance of using my “platform” (gross, sorry) for something. This week marks 10 years since the first time I was sexually assaulted. It wouldn’t be the last time, but this date is so cemented in my brain that every year it hits me like a wave of bricks. Last year, it was so consuming I couldn’t get out of bed for nearly three days. This year I could feel it creeping up on me all last week but it doesn’t feel nearly as weighted. The fact that I can even sit here and reflect on a decade of being a “survivor” (another word I hate but whatever) is something I’m very proud of. I was so young when it happened (15) I don’t think I even got to know myself before I had parts of my identity stripped away from me. And what no one wants to tell you about trauma is that it never really goes away, and that you’re always going to be a little bit broken. It took me a really long time to understand that’s okay and I’m okay. I used to think it made me hard to love - and in all fairness, a lot of men have told me that or made me feel like I am - but now I know that’s not true. It also took me a really long time to understand who I was, what I wanted, what made me comfortable and what made me feel good. Man, dating in your 20s is hard enough without the added weight of adolescent sexual trauma, am I right? I’m right. I chose this photo to go with this novel because for a long time I thought any expression of my sexuality invalidated what I went through. It wasn’t until the last few weeks that I learned how much power there is in women owning the very normal part of ourselves we are taught from a young age to keep hidden. Exploring and understanding that part of me has been an invaluable healing tool and given me more confidence than I ever thought I was allowed to have. So, anyway, here’s to ten years of not going all the way under the wave. Xo.

Kacey Musgraves | Nashville, TN . . I’ve been a fan of KM for much longer than I’ve known her, so to see her entire life and career laid out was incredible. But as her friend and as someone who’s had the privilege of being a part of so many of these big moments over the last year, seeing it all was super emotional. It was an added, unexpected bonus to see my work hanging up in a museum. What a very, very special night ✨ . . make-up: @moanilee styling: @ecduzit hair: @thedryhouseali . . #kaceymusgraves #goldenhour #allofthecolors

“You’re really hot and super driven/successful.” - @kalieshorr, shortly before she took this photo and by posting this as my caption I am admitting that I agree with her but self confidence isn’t a weird flex.

Eight years ago today, from my parents’ basement in New Jersey, the first issue of NKD went live. We were just called NAKED then. We had a terrible logo. We had no idea what we were doing. And yet, here we still are. Going out on my own terms is a privilege I am so grateful for, and this issue - our last anniversary issue - feels like the real beginning of our bittersweet goodbye tour. This issue is our fourth to last, and I hope you enjoy this one, because in so many ways @nikkireed represents exactly what NKD was built on - this idea that ideas matter, and that women are so beyond capable of turning those ideas into successful companies and careers. Thank you for #8YearsNKD. Link in my stories ✨

Before + After at Red Rocks. So incredibly impressed by this crew and this band and this artist for all they pulled off last night. I cried like, four times and it was definitely only partly from sleep deprivation and the altitude. It’s been a really, really cool year but last night was something else. Congrats on a sell out, KM ✨

Women of Country | Chicago, IL #LakeShakeFest . . Friday was a very cool and validating night. It was exactly seven years to the date of when I graduated high school with a dream of making a living photographing music. I got told for a long time that no one wanted to take women on tour. For a long time that was true. A year ago I shot my 1000th show and kicked off the busiest, most fulfilling year of my life. And then to have a day like Friday - where everywhere I turned there were women running the damn thing - was inspiring and emotional. Thanks Miranda and Maren for having me out, and all the other wonderful ladies who didn’t mind my camera in their faces. . . . #mirandalambert #pistolannies #thepistolannies #lindsayell #cassadeepope #laurenalaina #marenmorris #ashleymonroe #angaleenapresley #lakeshake #lakeshake2019 #femalefriday #cheerstofiveyears @mirandalambert @pistolannies @ashleymonroemusic @marenmorris @lindsayell @cassadeepope @laurenalaina @guitarleena @lakeshakefest

When I was 16, @joshuawmontgomery and I snuck up to the roof of Irving Plaza to kill a pack of Camel Lights and look at the view. He asked me if I was numb to this city yet, and I said I wasn’t. In a period in my life that was so grey, New York was always in color. And so Manhattan - in an apartment with a clear view of the Empire State Building - became the goal. I moved here when I was 18; got the view at 23. For a long time, I swore up and down that I’d never leave. But slowly, without me really noticing, my dreams and priorities changed, and leaving became the only thing that made sense. I love this city more than anything - it’s so deep in my bones at this point I don’t think I’ll ever be able to shake it. To that view from the top of Irving and all the other places I snuck into that I wasn’t supposed to. To all the bars that served me when I was 17 and were suspiciously shut down by the time I turned 21. To climbing 16 flights of stairs to my apartment when Hurricane Sandy knocked out the power for a week. To the Great Lawn at Central Park where I learned the hard way that first loves don’t last forever, and thank god for that. To the shitty Chelsea apartment that earned me my New Yorker stripes and the one on the East River that made me feel like I made it. To Yankee Stadium during Jeter’s last weeks, when the whole crowd tipped their hats in unison. To four years of art school that broke and reassembled me more times than I can count. And to the wonderful tribe of people I found here that made New York the first real home I ever had. The best parts of me came from this magical city. Nashville, be nice to me.
