1 Piece - 3 Ways {for YOU magazine}

I had the pleasure of working with the amazing talent Eric Schwanke of Carbon Copy Studios for this assignment. This guy creates such magic with film and digital alike and I was thrilled that he said yes when I asked him if he would photograph me for this style feature. So I wanted to share the pictures here with you. Thank you to Callista for allowing us to shoot in her back yard, a stunning little beach with a beautiful sunset almost every night. 

First outfit - holiday work party 
 {jacket - Asos, dress - Asos, booties - Plato's Closet}

2nd look - Christmas day with the fam
{shirt - Crewcuts, jeans - J. Crew, shoes - Zara, hat - Target}

And outfit #3 - New Year's Eve (the cozy way)
I wore this beaded crown on my wedding day. It was a gift from my best friend, who came over from South Africa to be in my wedding. It's a really special piece of jewelry and I have been waiting for a good opportunity to wear it again. :) Since "crowns" are in again, I thought NYE would a perfect night for a statement piece. 

And this skirt! You'll die! It is also from my wedding. The bridesmaids wore them, with deep burgundy/plum sweaters that had a fur collar. I mean …. So I asked my sister if she still had hers and she did! And I wore it. I know! The year 2000 was as brilliant as it was scary.

A Holiday Soiree {for YOU Magazine}

I wanted to share all of my favorite shots from a recent shoot I worked on for Green Bay's YOU Magazine. I styled 4 ladies and 4 gents, the girls in outfits from local boutiques Azure and Furs of Distinction, and the guys in looks from their own wardrobes. This was a fashion and lifestyle feature, so it incorporated all sorts of other fun elements. I loved the opportunity to stretch myself a bit, taking on an entire holiday soiree (at 11am in early October) and all the details for throwing a pretty party. We incorporated a holiday playlist, a scrumptious appetizer recipe, a party decor tip, and of course, the clothes! And the stylists at Salon 54 did an amazing job creating party ready hair (like the crown braid) and achieving the most gorgeous metallic makeup. So here is a look at all the detailed shots taken that morn.
Thank you to all these fabulous couples for modeling and for laughing, talking and having a faraway look in their eye on cue. And for not eating or drinking despite the yummy chokes and cheese and that red wine. Speaking of, a huge thank you to Bob for making our chokes and cheese. It's soo good, you guys. And a huge thank you to Azure, Furs of Distinction, The Wine Cellar, and Salon 54
