Can you believe we are about to head into the new year!? It is easy to look back at the year as a whole and think it was a complete blur, but it is so important to reflect on 2017 in order to move into the new year with a clear mind and inspired state.
This is one of those gowns that you come across every so often that is so intricate and meticulously made that it actually leaves you speechless. This Rachel Allan gown is entirely hand beaded with delicate crystals and is incredibly romantic. It was an absolute dream to wear on the cliffs of Sutro Baths on the Northern California Coast. The sun was quickly setting and was casting a golden glow over the old ruins. This gown would be so beautiful for engagement photos or a fancy holiday soiree.
Last week I had the opportunity to not only work with one of my favorite designers, Rachel Allan, but also work with one of my all-time favorite photographers, Liz Franco, in one of my favorite places. It was a sunny day in San Francisco during our unusual heat wave and we had the most incredible golden lighting over the Pacific Ocean. The delicate, airy sleeves, low back and beaded details make this one of the most incredible gowns i’ve ever worn. I love this gown as an alternative wedding dress, prom dress or for engagement photos. The incredible floral arrangement is by the cute little flower shop on my street, Le Bouquet. This day and this gown was an absolute dream.
While I type this I am longing to be at NYFW, but I am also thankful that I am bundled up in my cozy San Francisco apartment and away from any chance of a snowstorm. I have a few exciting projects that are keeping me in the city, and I am lucky to have gowns like this that bring NYFW straight to me. I was fortunate enough to be a part of this incredible lookbook with Rachel Allan for their Spring 2017 line at the infamous Castello di Amorosa, which is nestled in the rolling hills of Calistoga. The castle emulates the romance of Tuscany, and created the most extravagant backdrop for this luxurious Valentine’s Day inspired lookbook for their Prima Donna line.
Good morning lovely people! I hope this post finds you well and that you are as excited as I am that tomorrow is already Friday! I have been thinking a lot about Valentine’s Day already and want to make it extra special this year. I’ll take any excuse to get all dolled up, and when this pretty LBD showed up at my doorstep, it was love at first sight. This beaded neckline is EVERYTHING. It is rare that I wear my hair up, but I had to show off this insane beaded detail. The A-line skirt gives the prettiest silhouette, and the matte satin skirt was made for twirling. The perfect date night look.
