It’s Spring in Charleston (even if the rest of the country is getting slammed with Polar Vortex V) and the March issue of Charleston Magazine is on stands and is all about spring fashion. I was honored to be included in the issue amongst talented designers like Christina Jervey, Annie Van Harlington, Lindsey Carter of Troubadour and media favorites like Cator Sparks of The Manual and Chassity Evans of Look Linger Love just to name a few. There is even a great feature on the beautiful Charleston home and family of Lauren Lail (Library Vintage) in the same issue. Definitely pick up a copy for a peek inside of Charleston’s fashion/design community. It is a special place I am fortunate enough to live in!
Big Thanks to LulaKate for having us in their beautiful King Street showroom. Their Bridal and Spring RTW Collection Fashion show was styled with one-of-a-kind vintage and Candy Shop Collection pieces for a fun evening of jewelry, champagne and candy last Thursday. Here are some highlights, all photos by Clay Austin Photography. PS – how cute was the LulaKate dress I got to wear? Pockets are where it’s at, especially when standing awkwardly in front of people!
Is it just me or did it seem like 90 percent of the dresses at last night’s Grammy Awards were metallic? Not that there is anything wrong with that, I actually looove that look – and seems very appropriate for a music awards show. I think my absolute FAVORITE dress had to be Taylor Swift’s long silver Gucci gown. It reminded me of a 1970′s ensemble Bianca Jagger might wear out, although perhaps a bit more prim. With her hair pulled back and classic diamond earrings to match, she wore it perfectly:
Also loved Chrissy Teigen’s gold sweetheart mermaid gown by Johanna Johnson, especially with her hair styled into a side braid and beachy waves and not too much jewelry:
Ciara had such a perfect little bump also dressed up on her elaborate, gold embellished Pucci dress. She looked both comfortable and glamourous – a perfect pregnant goddess:
Rita Ora went for the old Hollywood sex bomb look with her coiffed bleached hair and skintight Lanvin cocktail dress. I love the hint of green, perfect with her nude lips and smoky eye and the knee length gave the whole ensemble a wonderful playfulness:
Finally, even though she broke out of the metallic mold, I thought Anna Farris looked great in a form-fitting navy Fitriani gown. Matching bold earrings to the color of the dress was perfect, as was her bleached blonde hair. I think blondes always look great in shades of blue and wearing her hair down with bangs and straight locks made the dress less formal and more fun.
