Industrial






t-shirt: 4 Paix, denim: 7FAM, necklace: Alabama Funk (if interested here is her Facebook page. She will custom make you a like the one I'm wearing!)
 
Here are the second set of shots from my shoot with Birmingham photographer Brad Lovell. As I said in the last post, Brad is an amazing fashion photographer but he's also a master of posing. I'm not a model, and I still feel self-conscious when getting my picture taken but Brad is great at making you feel at ease and guiding you in the best way to position yourself without feeling odd. So I hope you enjoy these pictures!

Field of Dreams




 tank: Target, skirt: Show Me Your Mumu, armband: Free People, bracelet: JewelMint,
sunglasses: Chloe (similar)

I had the amazing opportunity to work with one of Birmingham's greatest fashion photographers, Brad Lovell. We started this shoot in another outfit/location but those will come in the next post. Here I'm wearing this fantastic Show Me Your Mumu Emoji Salsa Skirt in the Floating Floral pattern, which is absolutely gorgeous! There are more products from the designer in the same print such as this Romper, Maxi Dress, Off-The-Shoulder Top and the Spike Tank. I purchased the skirt at an amazing local boutique called Soca Clothing which also offers online shopping. I went in to the store and since it was on sale they only had a medium or large left. Well I snatched up the medium figuring since it's a wrap skirt I could make it work, though I did have to take it to a tailor because it does come extremely long. I also got an awesome deal because the skirt, being on sale, they were offering an extra 50% off all sale items so in my eyes it was a steal! I paired it with this very cool armband that I bought at Free People the day I had my shoot with them, which if you haven't seen the post yet you can find it here.

I wanted to give you some background on this amazing photographer, Brad. He's been taking pictures since he was a child and with help and instruction from his mother he leaned to shoot analog at an early age. He's always had a passion for photography but didn't start taking it seriously until about five years ago. He started off shooting landscape and studying composition. He then started urban exploring and really got into that for a couple years until he realized something was missing. He started looking back at all these wonderful photos but realized something was missing. And then it hit him, the human element. People fascinate him and after that realization he started booking clients immediately. He studied posture, lighting and even sculpture. Brad had some help along the way from artist friends and even other photographers. Now he's at a point where even portraits aren't enough, he wants fantastic portraits, portraits that say something. Brad wants to take photos that tell a story or use an expression that set a mood, much like the fashion spreads myself and my readers all see in our favorite magazines. Brad Lovell always said that "I am only limited by my imagination and I truly believe that." This is one amazing photographer that I truly believe is going places and who knows, maybe one day we'll see his shots in Vogue, Marie Claire or InStyle.

p.s. Stayed tuned for the next post with more shots by Brad Lovell!

Casual Friday








t-shirt: Splendid, denim: J.Crew, necklace: Loren Hope (similar), sandals: Zara, backpack: Target

I've been a pretty casual dresser lately but a great way of adding a little something extra to a jeans and tee outfit is by adding a nice statement necklace. It just takes the mostly boring outfit up a notch and this one is definitely one of my favorites! Loren Hope makes amazing jewelry (I have a few pieces) and I can't wait to get my hands on more!

Zara Woman A/W 2014 Campaign










If you've been  reading my blog for a while than you know I've had quite the love affair with Zara. It's gotten better lately. It started all because I didn't live anywhere near a Zara but when they went online, man watch out, I went bananas! I still love Zara but my online orders have slowed down considerably (thank god).

From this Fall's collection I am crazy for all the leopard print, especially the coat dress. This Fall it seems Zara has quite a lot of fun stuff in store for us and I for one cannot wait! Especially being in Alabama, I really cannot wait for Fall.
