My favorite site Gilt.com featured Azaara jewelry today and I must say they are truly beautiful pieces to add to your jewelry box.  I had a chance to work at a boutique that featured Azaara and fell in love with ever since.  Here are some items found on gilt.com that are up on sale at a reasonable price!


Behind The Scenes...

Atlantis Now's editor in chief Jeremy Roussel asked a bestie friend of mine, Starr, to style a fashion shoot for his new up and coming magazine.  Of course, I couldn't pass on this exciting moment to style for an amazing magazine!  Although it was a hot humid late afternoon in New Orleans, we took the shots at Audubon Park and had a great time with photographer Michael and model Ashlea.  Thanks to Katie Pierce, another awesome person, from Hemline on Magazine St. she allowed us to use pieces from the shop.  Special thanks to Katie and the Hemline gals and Jeremy and Michael!!! 
These are some unretouched photos... ;) that's me taking the pics (I'm the shadow girl)

Fun Stuff

I'm going to have field days with this! I could just write of ton per day of the What to Wear daily slips. In retrospect the notepad comes in handy when someone stops to ask me what to wear. I didn't have it with me when my co-worker asked me what to wear for an all black attire event. I explained in detail from hair to make-up to accessories. It's now in my purse! I bought it from Anthropologie. You can purchase from knockknockstuff.com


Book of the month series

Every month I will make sure to post a book based on fashion, beauty, or art. Whatever stikes the match! I recently purchased a book named 'Fashion Designers' Stretchbook' by Hywel Davies. Here's a bit of infomation about the book. 'Fashion Designers' Stretchbook' explores many major names working in the fashion industry today. Photographs, stretches, mood boards, line-ups, toiles, fabric swatches and more all contribute to the creation of ideas for fashion designs, and they bought together for the first time to show how the final work is conceived and developed. Hywel Davies is a freelance fashion writer based in London.


Sad news today

Young designer Jonas Bevacqua founder of LRG dies today. I have a boyfriend, 2 brothers and guy friends who are 'advocate' wearers of LRG apparel for many years. Sad to hear about fashion pioneers that have made a positive impact lose their life early.


Upcoming Events...Cut! Costume and the Cinema

The Louisiana Art & Science Muesum in Baton Rouge is holding a new exhibit featuring 43 period film costumes from some memorable movies. This will display now through July 31st. What you'll find; Keira Knightly's costume as Georgiana in 'The Duchess', and the ever so sexy and talented Johnny Depp's costume from 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. I'll be sure to add images from my future visit. Details, details, details is a must for inspiration!

New Discovery

I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with the designer/artist for To Be Contiuned Vintage Jewelry Undone. Nancy Rhett is one of a kind just like her designs. She takes recycled silk sari from Nepal and even vintage silk Hermes scarves then adds vintage brooches, pendants, and trinkets to make come to life again. These can be worn as necklaces, hair ties, or wrap around as delicate bracelets. Check out her website... Tobecontinuedneworleans.com
