THE DENIM SHIRT DRESS

The denim shirt dress is a timeless piece of fashion that will compliment any style. For this look I wanted a 1970's retro style, so I paired a wooden and leather platform sandal with a fringe cross body bag and a double wrap watch. I added little touches of gold with a feather cuff bracelet and a gypsy necklace. You can finish the look with a fishtail side braid hairstyle.

BIKINI vs ONE-PIECE

Polk-a-dots are a hot summer trend for swimsuits this season. For a fresh take on the pattern, pair it with a bold color bikini top, a patent leather beach bag and your favorite flip flops. For a more vintage inspired look pair a one-piece suit with an ankle wrap sandal and a large white structured tote. Finish either look with a pair of black frame cat eye sunglasses and don't forget your sunscreen! 

GIRLS NIGHT OUT

My friend Lindsay asked me to create a "Girls Night Out" look for her upcoming trip to New York. I wanted the look to be elegant and sexy just like her. So I paired a structured tank, that shows just enough skin, with black ankle jeans and closed toe heels. I added a little sparkle with the jewelry and finished the look with an envelope clutch that has hint of color. 

A SOUTHERN EASTER

For a fun, stylish, and comfortable Easter look try a sleeveless knee length sheath dress. This will be great for all the festivities. A pair of standout wedges will be much easier to hunt Easter Eggs in than a pair of heels. To complete the look, trade your Easter basket in for a nude tote and add a cuff bracelet with some simple earrings. 

EASY FORMAL STYLE

 This formal style is very easy to recreate. The items you will need are 2 elastic bands for holding ponytails and some bobby pins. Begin with hair that has been curled the day before. Divide hair into front and back sections. Pull back section into low ponytail. Separate hair just above ponytail holder and loop hair through. Tease the ponytail and secure bottom with another elastic band. Roll the ponytail up and over, then secure with bobby pins. You can comb the hair gently to smooth out the bun you have created. Next, part the front section on your natural part and twist each side away from face. Pull the side twist over the top of bun and secure with bobby pins. Do the same for the other side. To finish the look, place a vintage broach or fresh flowers in the center. This formal style will look amazing for any special occasion.

COTTAGE HILL SHOOT

This photo shoot was huge for me. It was a lot of my firsts! The first time I was asked to style the hair and fashion, the first time a shoot I helped on would be published in a national magazine and the first time I styled a real couple. Peyton and Andy were already married when we did this shoot for Cottage Hill Magazine. They are high school sweethearts and that was the theme of this shoot.  Photography by: Wes Roberts Photography  Concept Design and Florals by: LeRae Events and Design  Location:  Huntingdon College  Makeup by: Lush Makeup Art

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!

LOVE-N-LAVENDER

This styled photo shoot was an amazing experience for me. I got to work with my favorite event planner,  Rae Culver of LeRae Events and Design, who planned my wedding. Rae asked me to find a soft flowing wedding dress for this shoot. So I chose to use my wedding dress designed by Saja Wedding. It was simple, delicate, and perfect. This photo was taken toward the end of the shoot and even though I had about 5 minutes to put our model's hair up, it turned out beautiful. Photography by: Lea Nicole Photography

FLOWER GIRLS

This gorgeous little creature was our pretend flower girl on the Vintage Masquerade shoot. While getting Marilyn ready, I fell in love with her. She was so sweet and excited to get her hair curled. I told her that I wanted to keep her, she said no, but that I could come visit her. It really doesn't get much cuter than that. Photography by: Wes Roberts Photography
