Sabine G

June 10, 2013

For our recent promo shoot for the Glossybox project, piles of jewelry were brought in for me to play and style myself in ( You don’t understand. Dream day. ) One of those jewelry designers I ended up wearing was Sabine G.
A few of the pieces I wore are below. I pieced them with a red ruffled gown, red shoes (both by Oscar de la Renta), red lips… it was a very “red everything” look which I don’t normally opt for but somehow worked. 

 The last piece above is a double ring which I wore and truthfully didn’t want to take off. I have never seen such a pretty double ring before. It’s something I plan to add to my collection sometime soon.

 This one was on my insta during the shoot. The rings were made to be worn above the knuckle. 
So. very. cool. Sabine. G.

Nude heels make your legs instantly longer. And this is the time of year that I add at least two new pair to my show wardrobe. We sat down in the office and gathered up our very favorites this week. 
Still deciding on which two – thoughts?

#BTS Glossybox

June 6, 2013

Last month in NYC…
I was wisked away to the ODLR offices. 
Photographers, makeup artists, shoes, jewelry, gowns- 
everything came together for a two day photo shoot for our collabo with Glossybox.
(out right now)
I know most of you have been following on instragram. 
For the next few days, I’ll be sharing a few ( a lot) of the bts photos 
from my very Carrie Bradshaw moment.

I have been getting the very sweetest notes from all of you- and I am so thrilled you have been following along with this project. The Dallas Shaw glossybox (the american beauty box) is available for the month of June. Go go go: glossybox.com

The weather is getting warmer, and muggier, every day this week. Anyone with wavy or curly hair, consider yourself warned. No matter what your hair type, high temps call for up dos. Here are three of my favorite ponies on pinterest this week:

Hygge and West takes over Dallas’s closet

June 3, 2013

Have you been catching the interesting conversations on twitter, and the instagram photos this week? If yes, you probably have caught onto the fact that we have a photo shoot next week for an upcoming project and are prepping my “closet”.
Hygge and west came over and fully dressed my dressing space in “petal pusher”, a metallic wallpaper and a long time favorite pattern of mine ( designed by the one and only joy ).
I am very lucky to say that my “closet” is an actual full room (who needs guests anyway?). 
Due to the nature of my job I need a little larger of a closet than most and I decided to go with a nontraditional design as per usual.
The end of the day left me speechless. It looks amazing 
and I cannot wait for you to see even more of the space!
Thanks to the Hygge and West team for making me such a fan.
