    Fall is just around the corner and I cannot wait!  Just for fun I thought I would share some stuff I am looking forward to:

     

    First off… my favorite show: New Girl.  I also just LOVE Zoe.

     

    Leggings, booties and blazers…need I say more?!

     

    I NEED to find these pants!  I am loving all things sparkly these days…

     

    Red lips…

    Fall is near and the smell of Chanel is in the air…sigh.   Fall is by far one of my favorite times of year and also happens to be the peak in fashion.  This is when designers put out the best of the best and set the tone for the rest of the year.  Awhile back ago, I was in the mood to pay tribute to one of my favorite designers who I believe is of course the epitome of chic…the one the only…Chanel.  What girl out there does not worship Chanel?   The images were shot  in film by the talented  Jessica Claire .

    My most favorite shot of the day..a girl and her pearls…

    Chanel shoes…owned by Jessica.

    A Chanel inspired dessert…

    A little splash of color…

    Jessica wanted to add in a boudoir feeling into the shoot…I loved it all!

    Last sexy shot of the day…

    A special thank you to my absolutely stunning friend Emily who modeled for us…and to Jessica Claire for letting us play dress up in her awesome closet!!!

    When founder of  No One Without Gaston Javurek contacted me to use some of my props and help direct a shoot for his new for purpose apparel company … I was more then ecstatic!  It was for a great cause and I was excited to get a chance to help direct of course!  It was quite a challenging day as we had to chase the rain… but then we were loving it as it added such a cool contrast in the final pictures!  Gotta love those amazing accidents.  Photos were all shot by Nick Holmes…he rocked!  Kelli Dunavant, No One Without’s COO and stylist got all the awesome wardrobe together  and worked with me to coordinate what we wanted to shoot. I want to thank our amazing models as well, braving the rain…and making my job easy!

    Both wing back chairs are mine (they are not pictured on my site).

     

    I LOVED these shots!  The sky looked so amazing too.  Chairs are mine but the bike was not…though I wished it was!

    This guys mustasche was insane!  And yes it is real…

    I had some fun with this shot.  I threw in some old windows (circa 40′s)…

    …one of the last shots of the day!  I was so in love with all the fall leaves…everyone had so much fun as you can see…no fake smiles necessary .

    Although I am a true lover of all things black… when summer comes around, I do try to bring out some color.  Love the bold colors of this dress and the stripes!

    My heart maybe skipped a beat when I saw the new spring 2011 ads for Chanel!  Maybe because I styled a setting simular to this a few months ago (shot by Jessica Claire)… sigh.

    I was beyond ecstatic when I got asked by Cortnie from canvasandcanopy to help on this amazing inspiration shoot for Nonpareil magazine for their December issue!  She knew I would have a few pieces that would fit for the shoot but Cortnie definitely worked her magic and gathered it all herself!  When we got to the location ( Santa Barbara museum ), I kept getting distracted as our photographer Elizabeth Messina also brought some insane antique pieces…okay maybe I was drooling!  It was definitely an all day event and although tedious I just love setting it all up!  I was blown away by all of the vendors who collaborated  on this shoot, you could tell they were all very excited about the creativity and unexpectedness of the shoot!  Here are some images I just could not live without:

    For all of the amazing photos please check out the issue of NONPAREIL Magazine.  Cupcake above by mysweetandsaucy.

    Hair and make up by Fiore Beauty was flawless.  I was in love with this necklace and Cortnie chose the most perfect dress to channel this “Shipwreck/bohemian” feel.

    Flowers were by La Partie events, and headpiece by Lo Boheme.   The table set up shown below was so whimsical… and FULL of amazing details.

    One of my favorite details was the hand dyed yarn that Cortnie made for the chairs.

    Laura Hooper provided the Calligraphy…

    A fun way to display seating cards, and a map of mine to show off the boutineers.

    Bride and Groom chair… Elizabeth capturing a sweet moment..

    A vintage suitcase and a trunk full of treasures…

    Of course I have to end this post with this sweet shot through the netting… and some killer designer shoes.

    Thank you to Cortnie for letting me be a part of this amazing shoot…a great experience indeed.  This shoot was also featured on Green wedding shoes!

    Fur.  You have to rock it with attitude.  I love how classic it is and how every year it can get a new modern twist.  I am so excited that it is cold enough to wear now, us Orange county girls have only a small window to do so!

    I could not resist and just bought this vintage goat hair clutch circa 1960′s!  Cannot wait to take her out…

    I thought this dress was so fun and flirty!  This one is made by Lanvin, a favorite designer line of mine.  I love the small veil as well, this is perfect for the reception after for the girl who is planning on dancing all night!
