Blog

Oh, Hey There!

I should start this off by apologizing for being a bad blogger and not actually, you know, blogging, but here’s the thing: I’ve been blogging nonstop, just not here. Keeping up the Cincinnati Magazine Style Scout blog and Cincinnati Wedding Bridal Buzz blog uses up most of the shallow reserve of writing skill I possess, and I’ve been posting about everything from DIY party decorations to the best places to shop for vintage furniture to...

The Evolution Will Not Be Televised

Every now and then I do something that reminds me how much I absolutely LOVE fashion. This week, it was the Friends of Fashion fundraiser/Cameron Silver book signing at Evolution. I knew about Evolution (and the brilliant STIFF UPPER lip), and LA-based vintage shop Decades is legendary so of course I was excited to meet special guest Cameron Silver, but I encountered something else there: a sense of belonging. What fashion lover wouldn’t delight in the...

DAAP Fashion Show 2014

I had the pleasure of attending this year’s DAAP Fashion Show, and to say I was impressed would be an understatement. The setup, lighting, audio, staging, choreography, designs--everything--was on point and extremely well executed. And it all played to a packed house! Having interviewed several of the student designers for the DAAP Fashion Series, it was surprisingly  thrilling to see their designs come to life on the runway. I thought about the Polaroids Bree collected in...

Work // Cincinnati Wedding Spring Issue

Several months worth of scouting and shopping and shooting came together in the gorgeous new issue of Cincinnati Wedding! This is our first-ever budget issue, so I pulled wedding dresses (and wedding jumpsuits) from everywhere--including Target--and they’re all under $1,300. 1. Touching up makeup on set at Obscura. 2. There was A LOT of wedding cake left over after the cake toppers shoot! We wound up giving away (um, and eating) huge hunks of rich, buttery goodness. 3....

Current Obsession // Goldringer

I can count on one hand* the number of times I’ve had a professional manicure, but even my DIY nails look sophisticated next to an assortment of delicate gold rings. I’m currently partial to mixing this rings-on-a-chain situation I got at LIBBY with a Rock Salt Vintage thumb ring and my favorite Tony Soprano-wannabe pinkie ring.  Bada bing! *But seriously, why are my hands so vein-y? I'm a phlebotomist's dream! [hr color="gray" width="100%" border_width="1px" ] SHOP LOCAL Sloane, LIBBY...

Bye-Bye, Beau Bear

How adorable are his little kitty elbows? I’m sad to say I’ve lost another furry friend: my cat Beauregard died this week. If you follow me on social media you may already know this, but I thought a tribute post here would be appropriate--after all, this is where I introduced Beau when I first adopted him. I still get a little teary-eyed when I think about him, but I think I’m past the Ugly Cry stage and...

Work // Cincinnati Magazine April 2014

The April issue of Cincinnati Magazine is on newsstands, and I have to say: putting this one together made me feel like a big kid. With several kid-focused location shoots, a playful studio shoot, and a toy-themed Necessities page, I spent a LOT of time in toy stores and several late nights putting together adorably tiny outfits. Dressing kindergarteners is surprisingly fun! 1.  Feeding time at the Newport Aquarium // 2. Pinkies up for a tea...
