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...

Current Obsession // Over-the-Knee Boots

Every now and then I feel the urge to dress like an '80s hooker, and there's nothing like a good over-the-knee boot to get that Pretty Woman look juuuust right. I got this Guess pair on sale after eyeing them for months--the gold detail on the sole and leather/suede combination (plus the half-off sale price!) sealed the deal for me. Plus, they're a good investment: over-the-knee boots were all over the Fall runways: Top: Cynthia Rowley,...

Muse-ings // Sassy Keys and A Dose of Gold

1. A sassy key that truly expresses the way I feel when I lose my keys // 2. Finally got around to seeing American Hustle and am now actively stalking Ms. Ross’ Studio 54 style // 3.  Loose layers with a heavy dose of gold feels just right // 4. I will let this relatively small yet spa-like bathroom serve as inspiration for a thorough cleaning this weekend. Wish me luck! Follow me on Tumblr and...
