Helloooo! I just returned home from LA late last night and, dudes, that vacation was soooo fuuuunnnnn. I went with two of my closest girlfriends, and we ate so many amazing things and went to so many awesome places and met so many sweet people. Everyone is SO NICE in LA–I couldn’t get over it. AND I saw Rachel Zoe and Roger at a bar. !!! Thrilling. Then I got home and there was a bunch of cutie pie images greeting me in my inbox:
Local Chicago wedding photographers, Nicole and Lizz of Studio Starling, recently asked me to participate in a styled shoot at the gorgeous Nellcôte restaurant in the West Loop. The second they mentioned Megan and Don Draper’s wedding as inspiration, I knew I had to be there. We started with a more traditional look–using the Laurel gown from Spring ’12 with the Ipomea veil from the latest collection–and then got super playful with the Tulipe from Fall ’11, adding the Celosia veil (Fall ’12) and the Candytuft hat (Spring ’12) as well. I love all those dang headpieces layered on top of one another. So cute, right? The result is a fun, 1960′s look that still looks super rad today – not stiff or scratchy. I’m so excited to have been part of this shoot, and don’t mind hinting that it’s giving me some ideas . . .
. . . which is good, because I very much do not feel like getting back to work.
P.S. if you are ever in LA, you absolutely must eat here.
