All that Glitters

20131122-124114.jpg

My friend Darcy said she wanted to do a dressy Holiday shoot and I told her she came to the right person. I just happen to have quite the collection of sequins and sparkles, on dresses, natch.
So, I styled us up in my finest, Samantha from Crown Beauty Bar did our makeup & hair and Ms. Mallory Berry offered her trailer for the location.
The looks:
Turquoise Turban – Grey Dog
Gold Hat, Gold Turban & Blue Bows – Cheap Thrills
Ear Cuff – MACA
Queen Necklace – The Mustache
Gold Collar – Asos
Everything Else – Thrifted

What I Wore: The Best Sweater



(what i wore: sweater – vintage from potter’s house, shift – banana republic, croc booties – gianni bini, earrings – forever21, rings – forever21 and vintage)

This vintage sweater, complete with sparkles and shoulder pads was $1.50 at a slightly scary little thrift store called Potter’s house. I’m obsessed with it. It’s a delightful color and goes with plenty, plus I get a strange and heady high from this good a bargain.


Tahiti & Tulle

A gorgeous setting for white dresses, bronzed skin, the sun, the sand and of course tulle. I’ve become particularly fond of the floral wreath and it looks stunning with her dark hair.

My Wedding Inspirations

Today is April 27th. That means our wedding is exactly four months away. I hyperventilated a bit when I realized. In honor of that and of the royal wedding (of course) I thought I’d share some of my wedding inspirations. If Kate Middleton forsakes Queen Victoria’s jewels for flowers in her hair I will never forgive her.
