I’m so excited to see the urban elopement I styled earlier this summer featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs today! The post is really lovely – I’d love it if you showed EAD some love. Thanks, ladies! Y’all made my day.
Oh my goodness, y’all. Pinch me! I’m so excited to share these photos from Eric Kelley Photography from the elopement photoshoot that I styled in Chicago earlier this summer. This shoot was such a blast to style – I had the most fun selecting all of the fashion, decor, and details with our lovely creative director (and my dear friend!) Lora Kelley. We spent two full days (and some change) at our urban venue, discovering where the light was prettiest, putting together vignettes, and shooting. SO many fabulous vendors contributed to this shoot (the pearls are by my fabulous aunt, Carol Sperry of Goldie O jewelry), and I hope I get to work with you all more in the future! I cannot wait to share more in the coming week. Head on over to Eric’s site for more of a preview and stay tuned for a special blog publication!

Photographer (and blog writer behind this video) Ari Seth Cohen said this: “I not only want to show that older women are vital and creative, but also to show people [they need not be] afraid of aging—and personal style is a great way to showcase this.”
yes! thankfully, i too have women in my life who demonstrate the exuberance, wisdom, and freedom that come with age – at 40, 50, 60, 70 or beyond. more oft than not, i find myself more inspired by images of my Nana in the ’50′s with her short pixie cut or my mom sporting a cinched boatneck sheath and gorgeous bangles in the ’80′s than i am by the trends shouting from store windows.
what do you think? where you get your fashion inspiration?
i am smitten with this Bottega Veneta number for Fall 2011. the lace, the subtle fringe, the stripes! captured, of course, by The Sartorialist.
