{ Dallas Love’s VC }

May 20, 2014

Did you see our post earlier this morning about our amazing time with Vince Camuto?  So many of you were tweeting and commenting on Insta about my outfit that I thought I’d share.  Here are some of my Vince Camuto faves including the romper I wore, shoes I took home, and perfume I spritzed.

{ Vince Camuto }

May 20, 2014

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, my job takes me to the most amazing places. Last week I was invited to be a part of an event at the Paramus mall with Vince Camuto for Guiliana Rancic’s charity “Fab-U-Wish”
I drew original illustrations for tickets holders of my favorites from the new vince camuto collection…and I did some mingling with the stylish guests too. I chose Nonzia Lace Up High Heel, Ombre Gladiator High Heel Sandals, and Omera Sandal – but it was soooo hard to choose. (You probably saw on instagram that I had a hard time choosing. The Ombre Gladiator High Heel Sandals  boots are stunning!)
I met Vince and his lovely wife and also spent some time with the talented and beautiful GR.
I love my job, but these events are the best because I am doing what I love, meeting new people and when it’s for a good cause, everything seems even more beautiful.

 

{ textured locks }

May 19, 2014

 

So many times my hair has turned out like this on accident, so I’m thrilled that textured hair has become in, especially in time for summer.  For those of you who can’t walk out of the ocean and have your hair look like this (I wish, right?), check out some of my fave products below to help you get the look.

 

{ bold & beachy }

May 16, 2014

Can you tell we have beach on the brain?  Spring cleaning is in the mix  and Memorial Day Weekend is quickly approaching–so why not do a little home re-do while you’re at it?  Add a ton of color to a white base and make your room feel like it’s beach season all year long.
And if you purchase the Rattan Chair, can we come over and swing on it?

{ facebook }

May 15, 2014

So a while back I went to Facebook NY HQ to film for their new Face to Face video interview series with the super fashionable Debra Bednar.  I’ve been sooo excited to tell you everything about the visit and I haven’t stopped gushing about how great the people and office are at Facebook.  I got to sign THE FACEBOOK WALL, tour the offices, and shoot some hoops.  Thanks to Jason (@picturejason on  Instagram and Flickr) for snapping the pics.

So here it is…world premiere of the 1st Facebook Face to Face video.

 Oh what’s that you say?  We have a BRAND NEW Facebook page of our own, so please head on over there and tell me how much you like me, you really like me.

{ TWN: Penthouse }

May 14, 2014

Sometimes to get a change of scenery, I paint up in our Penthouse office because it has great lighting.  Here I recreated my outfit for you to try (for lounging or otherwise).  After this long winter, I’m still not ready to let go of my sweaters, so pair yours with shorts, sandals, and aviators.  Throw in some great makeup and accessories and you’ll have a comfy spring look.

{ Le Curate }

May 13, 2014

So a few weeks ago I got to do this gorgeous shoot with Le Curate at the Moda Operandi offices in NYC.  I was dressed in some of the best designers around into a clickable and shopable editorial.  Make sure to check it all out here to find out the story and see what I’m wearing.

{ metallic nails }

May 12, 2014

As an artist, I’m all about the nail art, but this look anyone can master.  Little trick of the trade to keep the lines straight–tape.  Paint the whole nail one color then after letting it dry, cover it in tape, then paint again. And voila, gorgeous metallic nails.

{ le boudoir }

May 9, 2014

  A boudoir is defined as a private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room, and doesn’t that word just sound so fancy and French and sexy.  Make your own boudoir by adding a lounger, full length mirror, golden accessories, and accent lighting.  Peek at the links below and turn your room into a boudoir (say that in a super fancy way).
