My Prom dress in a new light

Over the weekend, I did a shoot on Georges Island. We took the ferry from the Aquarium and upon arriving, I felt like we were traveling to Shutter Island which was actually filmed nearby. Spooky. Nate Tia, the photographer wanted to use the location and it's distinct, rustic feel against couture-like gowns.

Upon my hunt for a big, dramatic gown, I thought, my prom dress! It is this soft lavender with four tiers of tulle and satin flowing to the ground. I cannot even believe it has been ten years since I have worn the dress and even today, it is still chic enough to put in my shoot. Now, at nineteen, my sister Caroline would model the Cache gown. It all reminds me how I have grown and changed, but I can still step in and feel eighteen again.




Wait for the Georges Island Shoot.........

DIY Sparkle Pedicure

Want to add some glamor to your pedicure this summer? Just add a touch of sparkle to your favorite shade and go. It is simple. Here are the steps to a Do-It-Yourself Sparkle Pedicure:

1. Start out with a fresh pedicure.

2. Find a sparkly nail polish like this one. I used Wet and Wild. There are so many different options right now from subtle to extreme. I also took some glitter from my makeup kit! Use any pattern you like and paint it on your big toe. Then, if you have extra sparkle like me, dust it over the wet glitter pattern.

3. Allow to dry and then apply top coat to seal.

That is it. Now you are ready for a fabulous night on the town where your toes will take center stage.

Inside My Jewelry Box

Aunt Sadie's held their annual Sidwalk Yard Sale last weekend. I wait for this all year, seriously. They have half their inventory out for at least 70% off. One dollar candles, two dollar cards, three dollar pillows, and home goods galore. I live for this. This year I found one special treasure, a three dollar jewelry box with vintage jewelry inside. Of course, I grabbed it along with a baby smock for my new cousin, a Boston Terrier notebook, the jewels and some other goodies. Here are a few:
This is the adorable $3 box!
Vintage gloves, a unique ornament ordained with glitter, a candle and paper labels are among the gifts I purchased.

 These are some beads and vintage earrings from the sale. I love all of them. The Chanel bracelet is a paper mache made out of magazine clippings. It was the first present from my boyfriend.

Another jewelry spot. Sometimes I hang my earrings from pretty glasses objects I pick up. Another jewelry box hangs out on the side. 

Some feathered earrings over my mirror and near a Marilyn Monroe quote I enjoy.

Overall, it was again another great sale and I am lucky I live less than a block away.

SJP Perfection

SJP always looks insanely pulled together no matter what she is wearing or doing. Whether walking her son to school or attending a glamorous event, she dresses the part. This outfit says it all. Fresh off a plane, she throws on a leather jacket and fedora to dress up her slim, gray-wash jeans and heather gray tunic. The pop of blue on her Nicholas Kirkwood sandals add her signature uniqueness. Add her gorgeous locks and wallah......
