Still 70's outside here in Boston, but I am keeping the dream alive and fantasizing about cooler weather and these totally cool looks. I just picked up the chicest retro hat from Forever 21 and I am itching to debut some vintage inspired looks avec le chapeu.
This month's fine jewelry sale at Skinner features some totally fun, quirky and equally stunning pieces.I'll be keeping my eye on some of more choice vintage watches that are coming up on the auction block (definitely the focus of this sale) along with some of these more fun selections.
The unicorn broach reminds me of yester year trapper keepers with airbrushed visions of unicorns and dancing faeries. It is so beyond over the top. My inner ten year old self is DYING to own this. She will have to learn to live with disappointment considering the price tag for this beauty.
It's here! The release day for the Improper Bostonian with Mon Petit Chou Chou's style feature! My dimples are aching from smiling so much!!
I am over the moon with the hair, make up, outfits, the fabulous photography, all culminating in the delightful end result, finally available for public consumption. Adam DeTour was the photographer for the shoot and he is obviously a master at his craft.Be sure to pick up your edition today and check out the feature. The interview excerpts and shots can also be seen here, on the Improper Bostonian's website.
The countdown has begun to Mon Petit Chou Chou's Improper Bostonian debut! As initially posted here, MPCC will be featured in the Style Profile feature set to run in the Fall/Arts edition of the magazine released this week.
The editor for the feature, (the lovely) Amanda Knoor, initially asked me to pull together 4-5 looks for the shoot. Above, are two of my faves from the test photos with husband pre-shoot. Post outfit run with husband I felt sure what my choices would be....until I got the warning to avoid black. No black? Absolute insanity!! My poor Alexander Wang dress and Top Shop romper were left by the wayside. After shedding a few tears for them I went back to my closet and drawing board for some more colorful choices. If they wanted color, color they would absolutely get!
As soon as I was asked to come in for the shoot I made a 911 call to my #1 stylist at Anita Kurl, Cory, to fix my bangs. I have him to thank for all the complements I have been getting lately on my choppy fringe. I pinkie swear, no more home haircuts for me! The lovely Danielle at the Saks Chanel counter also came to my rescue and whipped up a delightful smokey eye. I am smokey eye illiterate and she is the ultimate master of the shadows, deftly wielding her palette and brushes. Below are some shots of the prep.It takes an army and I have some spectacular people enlisted!! Once I was cut, styled, painted, and primped, I was able to face the shoot full on. Stay tuned for photos from the shoot this week!
I plan on investing in a new laptop or I Pad soon and I need to gear up with the proper accessories to tote such gadgets around in! New I pad in hand, means I will probably opt for one of the more budget friendly options though.....someday Mulberry, some day.
