Part 1: Let's Dance

Back in September, I was surfing the web and stumbled upon some dance photography, and it reminded me of the elegance and beauty dancers bring to the simplest clothing. They could be wearing a loose pocket t-shirt and leggings and look incredibly gorgeous and fashionable simply because of how they carry themselves.

So, I wanted to do a dance-wear inspired shoot with basic clothing, colors and hair to really remind everyone and MYSELF that you don't need bright lipstick, striped dresses or awesome shoes to look fashion-forward. You can wear the plainest shirt and look chic.  It's just about the ethereal, beauty that every woman possesses and needs to have confidence in.

So, here is the inspiration for the shoot that just took place on Sunday in collaboration with Jeanette Leblanc Photography, Kim Cornwell, Jennifer Zahorski and AVE Styles.

I'm looking forward to seeing the final product of the team's effort and I hope you are too!

Pop Lover

justin-timberlake2I love pop music to the core! I always have and I always will. I listen to almost all genres of music, but the mainstream, MTV artists will always have a fan in me. Nothing makes me happier than a good dance party in my living room or in front of my mirror with Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake tunes in the background. (Yes, Ryan, I still have dance parties when you're not home). All morning I've been listening to pop music on Pandora (I have a Britney Spears radio station), and all i want to do is have a fashion photo shoot now...Jessica, better get out the camera...haha. So, in honor of my burst of pop cravings,  here's my top ten list of 2008/2009 pop artists:

1. Justin Timberlake 2. Britney Spears 3. Gwen Stefani/No Doubt 4. Black Eyed Peas/Fergie/Wil.I.Am 5. Beyonce 6. Rihanna 7. Kanye West 8. Taylor Swift 9.   Lady Gaga 10. Katy Perry
