what a stylist does | wedding edition

One of my latest favorite things (I seem to come up with more of them every minute. Thanks, Awesome Life!) is styling a shoot and working directly with a photographer. Stephanie Garvey and I created this awesome casual country vintage concept for a few post-wedding photos with Josh & Allison last month. In the “Pre-Party”...

winter | stockings

I have a problem with stockings. Basically, every time I put them on, it looks like I got them from a recycling bin. One use and you can call me Shredded Sally. If it’s not a table corner, it’s a fingernail or a coat button. I can cut those babies on anything. Fortunately, I do...

winter | outtakes

There’s a reason why I look sullen in most of my images. Pretty much because when I get goofy while shooting photos, they turn out like this: That’s right. Either scaring away fluffy neighborhood spectators or laughing uncontrollably at my photographers jokes. (There are advantages to hiring your high school best friend as your photographer,...

winter | looking forward

There was one show in the New York Spring 2011 Fashion Week that stood out to me. (The fashion world is always a season ahead of the rest of us.) Usually, I look through photo sets and watch clips of runway shows and am amazed at the creativity and beauty. But occasionally, I think: I...

winter | utilities

Hi Fashionable Friends! Hope you brought in the new year with a bang! I brought in mine acquiring a new brother-in-law! Fortunately, his great taste in women makes up for his affinity for 10 year old t-shirts. (Don’t worry, we’ve got plans to shape up his wardrobe a bit!) Family weddings are fun, but they...

winter | ruby slippers

We all know there’s no place like home for the holidays. But how do we get there? The flights are expensive, the roads are full, the cheer seems absent from transportation. Well, it’s easy for me! See, I have these nifty shoes, and I just click my heels together three times and I go wherever...

fall | bits and pieces

This outfit mixes some of my favorites from this fall: my navy corduroy blazer, a silk scarf given to me by a friend, my BR paper bag skirt, a thin belt, and brown heeled oxfords. Are you ready? Obviously, with a bit more chill in the air now, I add tights! But each of these...

fall | stripes and scarves

Well, my Thanksgiving blog-break extended long past the long weekend, apparently. I think I just have so much to be grateful for, it takes me extra long to categorize… Right? Right. Okay, so on my extensive list are: friends who take amazing photos and Style Party favorite finds. This striped shirt might have Sisterhood-Magic powers....

fall | leopard and leather

I’ve added something new to my list of Take-Backs. You know, those things I said I can’t pull off, would never wear, might be in style but just aren’t me. I took it back, and like every other thing on my Take-Back list, I’m currently obsessed. With leopard. And with these amazing photos taken by...

fall | jewelry style

So, are you as madly in love with the necklace from my last post as I am? Well, probably not, but I can assure you, if this gem was hanging on your mirror every morning, you’d be happy too. One of the best kept jewelry secrets out there is this: it doesn’t have to be...

fall | denim and bows

Okay, okay, so technically this shirt is Chambray, not denim. But Chambray and Bows just didn’t have the same click for a post title. One of my favorite things this fall has been discovering my girly-girl style: the hot pink lipstick is only part of the story! Bows seem to be the necessary ingredient to...

fall | lipstick styles

One of the (few! I’m on a budget) fun things I bought in Las Vegas last month was this hot pink lipstick. Normally, I stick with a nude lip color or just a little natural lip balm, but a 5-day solo roadtrip in the desert states called for something with a bit more punch. I...
