This is me and my cute mommy! The dress that I'm wearing (on the right) is what I call my "old faithful". It's one of the best finds I've had the pleasure of stumbling upon many years ago....OK probably 6-7 years ago. I brought it from a consignment store in Philadelphia and it's the best thing ever. It's a basic matte jersey knee length boat neck dress in a cool retro DVF-like print. The surprise is the back drops into a cute keyhole design. Whenever I'm going out of town and need a "going out dress" I pack it as my emergency go-to. Because of the matte jersey it travels well and it's not super tight which makes it comfortable. I love it!!!
I like to think of myself as a multi-tasker...this shoot is a perfect example of that. I had a summer bbq and at the end of the festivities, I helped my friend with a photo shoot for her swimsuit line. The young lady behind the line Padmore, is very talented and destined for great things so keep an eye out for her. She wanted to use the cool Roosevelt Island night time view as a backdrop for her swimsuits. I think it came out pretty cool!
I was recently shopping with my mom and sister...and stumbled upon these great classic American style items. My sister already owned the denim top (great fashionistas "shop" alike) and I'd been in the market for one so I got it. My mom was nice enough to get the tweed blazer for me :) When I saw the items, I didn't immediately think they would work together but using the thin brown belt instantly ties the look together. I've played around with the classic look before, from pique polos to classic white dress shirts, but this is the first time I've really embraced the look with a tweed blazer....and I like it!
Ok, so you guys know I have a handbag obsession from time to time. My new "handbag crush" is photographed above...the Stellar Mahina Collection bag from Louis Vuitton, OMG! What I love about this bag is that it has the extra long strap and instead of the traditional LV logo printed, its perforated over the whole bag, NICE! But there is more...it comes in two sizes and about four colors :) YAY!
