Editorial Blink Shoot


This past weekend I had a the privilege of leading a styled shoot for photographers from all around the country attending Blink Conference. I centered the concept around contrasting color. Check out a snippet of the pin board below. Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 8.32.42 AM

With big hair, a bubble gum pink backdrop, a killer model and some bold clothes you really can't go wrong.


Bright green, black, gold and white were all colors that went will with the pink back drop, but they also pop in natural settings.


I jumped in front of the camera once or twice to show off some sequins and my "This is my party dress" tank from Junk in the Trunk Vintage Apparel. You can pre-order your tank or sweatshirt starting today!!! Click here.


Big thanks to Ryan Walsh Photography for these photos and Savage Universal for the seamless backdrop.

Boho Chic with Faux Fur


I've been on the hunt for a fabulous faux fur vest for years, and I've finally found one. This gray "Kya fur vest" from Tart Collections was just what I was looking for. It looks and feels expensive, and it's affordable. Cha-ching! The color creates enough contrast against my hair ensuring I don't look like a lion when I wear it. I love that this vest stops past the natural waist but doesn't cover my bottom; thus elongating my body and not letting me lose my shape completely.

Of course, this vest looks great with a simple long-sleeve top like this one above from Adea and jeans, but why not embrace the 70's bohemian chic fall trend and punch up the style with a maxi dress, maxi skirt or long gaucho pants? Top your outfit off with a great carpet bag like this one from Anthropologie.


If that's too wild for you, try wearing your faux fur vest with a long-sleeve shift dress such as this one from ZARA. The slight pattern on the dress resembles a paisley pattern you would have seen in the 70's, but the modern color palette and pairing with black booties keeps the outfit current.


What do you think of this boho chic fall trend? Do you dig it? Will you be buying a faux fur vest?

Winter Whites

White is a color normally reserved for spring and summer, but recently, I have seen white incorporated into winter outfits. White separates with darker winter ones is a surprising pairing that can spice up your outfit when everyone else is in black and navy. Here are a few ways to pair your white pieces with a winter outfit. Wear white pants! Add a utility jacket and menswear inspired button-down to insure your outfit is not too "summer brunch".


Throw on a white blazer instead of the usual black so you stand out in a sea of dark winter coat wearers.


And my favorite: a white faux fur! Chic AND warm...like a polar bear.

Faux Fur Vests

Fur Vests are very hot this fall and winter! I'm not a real fur fan, not even vintage fur, but I definitely have faux fur on my wish list! Here's the thing though...I've been trying on all different types of faux fur vests, and I've realized two things that you should also keep in mind when shopping:

1. DO NOT buy a vest that matches your hair color. Well, unless you want to look like a lion....

2. They look best when your hair is up. Well, unless you want to look like a lion...

You can find some awesome ones at Macy's, Dillards, ZARA and ASOS.
