CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR HER!

 Choosing gifts for the special woman in your life can be difficult. It helps if you know what she likes to do in her spare time. So here are some of my favorite items for different types of females.  For the woman who loves everything that sparkles, a pair of princess cut stud earrings or a diamond "v" pendant necklace will be perfect gift wrapped under the tree.  An apple watch is the perfect holiday gift for the gadget loving girl! And you can change the band!   The fashionista in your life will love a piece of fashion designer art or a bag by her favorite designer.   For the lady who loves that glass of wine after a long day, a bottle of her favorite wine and 2 beautiful wine glasses will be exactly what she'll want after all the holiday festivities are over.  And for the woman you just want to keep warm this holiday, a cashmere and wool infinity scarf will do just the trick!   Hope everyone has a safe and beautiful Holiday Season! Merry Christmas!

EMMY'S FASHION 2015

 It's that time of year again, Awards Season! The Emmy's kicked off this season with some amazing fashion! My absolute favorite of the evening is Kerry Washington in a stunnig silver Marc Jacobs. She actually saw this dress only a few days before on the runway and asked to wear it to the Emmy's. Sofia Vergara did what she does best (which is looking HOT!) in this stunning silver strapless St. John dress that has 64,000 hand applied Swarovski Crystals! Aubrey Plaza was simple and elegant in her Alexandre Vauthier v-neck gown. Lady Gaga suprised me the most! She toned down her usually over the top style and wore an amazing one-shoulder Brandon Maxwell dress. Her make up and hair comlpeted her glamours movie star look. Last but certainly not least is Laverne Cox! She was breathtaking in this cut-out Calvin Klein and the color is perfection! Can't wait to see what other fashion is in store for this AWARDS SEASON!!!

CHANDELIER SHOOT

 I love working with  LeRae Events & Design  and  Wes Roberts Photography  because the results are always magical! When  Rae Culver  told me she was going to transform her beautiful  rustic barn  into an all white chandelier shoot I knew she was a little crazy but at the same time a GENIUS!

 My mission, after hearing the concept, was to make the bride and groom look just as fabulous. So I chose a strapless sheath gown with a peplum skirt for the bride. This gown has a sophisticated silhouette and by adding the brooch, earrings and headpiece gave it the perfect amount of glamour. To finish the bridal look, I gave the bride a modern version of a classic french twist. The groom I wanted to look handsome and timeless like James Bond, so I chose a classic white tux jacket with black bow tie. Don't they love marvelous!!!!

BOHEMIAN STYLED SHOOT

 I was asked to style the hair for a  Lea Nicole Photography  shoot and I fell in love with the bohemian concept. The models are perfection in the  SAJA  wedding and bridesmaid dresses. The shoot was in Auburn, Al (WAR EAGLE) at the  Fountainview Mansion  on a very cold day but you would never know with the way the pictures came out! Simply STUNNING! And this picture made the cover of  Southern Bride Magazine !!!!!

 Our bride looked absolutely magical. Her mother,  Amy Camp , was the make up artist and she did a magnificent job! Just look at those lips and lashes!

ELEGANT SHOOT

  I had the pleasure of working with  Lea Nicole Photography  again on this elegant photo shoot for  RSVP Magazine . Each model needed to have a different formal hairstyle but they also had to be cohesive to compliment the gorgeous  Saja  dresses.

  All the models and images turned out stunning. It was really hard to pick photos to share.   You   can see all the images on the  Lea Nicole Photography  website.

BLACK & WHITE

 I have always loved black and white photos. These are from the Love-N-Lavender shoot and they take my breathe away. Sitting on a stone wall, Janna and Brealynn look timeless.   Photography by : Lea Nicole Photography  Flowers by:  LeRae Events and Design

 This shoot was on an extremely hot day in Alabama and Janna makes modeling look easy. The  Saja Wedding  dress looks light and airy. And I'm in love with how her hair falls just under her arm and to the side.  Photography by:  Lea Nicole Photography   MakeUp by:  Lush Makeup Art

THE OSCARS

 The Oscar fashion last night did not disappoint! There was so many beautiful gowns, hair and makeup it was hard to narrow down to my top picks. But I did! My absolute favorite is Rosamund Pike in a luscious red Givenchy gown. Emma Stone look stunning from head to toe in a backless Elie Saab dress. Jennifer Lopez also wore Elie Saab, her skin tone plunging neckline ball gown was perfection. My favorite fashion risk of the evening is Lupita Nyong'o in Calvin Klein. The fit of the pearl structure was breathe taking against her skin tone. Tell me your favorite!
