Eye Candy : Girl Bud

April 23, 2013

Arizona Muse ventures on a stylish seaside jaunt to dreamy Sicily, Italy in front of Tom Craig's lens in this idyllic editorial for Vogue Russia. The light and breezy fashions she wears from Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen, Bottega Venetta, Marni, Valentino, Jill Stuart and Dior really couldn't be more perfect for this picturesque locale. These images are like a breath of fresh air.

This will be my only post this week. I haven't been feeling all that well lately and need to take a break. I've experienced a few mild episodes of vertigo and my biggest fear is that it might escalate to what I had last year which led to a state of incapacitation. I'm hoping to avoid all that again by resting and taking better care of myself. I have to limit my computer time so I probably won't be able to visit/comment on your blogs for awhile but I'll try to drop by and say hello when I can.

What I'm Wearing : Floral Print Shoes

April 19, 2013

Confession time. While I may be swooning over pretty shoes on here, I'm technically on a shoe ban at the moment. I recently cleaned out my closet and found a number of pairs of shoes that have either never been worn or just worn once. The number is more than I care to admit but not quite enough to constitute a problem. Please tell me I'm not the only one. These floral print wedges are a few years old and they're one of my Spring favorites. Hubster actually picked them out. I never really gave much consideration to printed shoes because I have alot of prints in my wardrobe but these are just perfect on the days when I'm wearing a monochromatic or less patterned look. Do you own any printed shoes?

Shoe Crush : Christian Dior

April 17, 2013
I came across these Christian Dior fuchsia metallic pumps and thought they were absolutely stunning! The vibrant color and sculptural shape are fabulous. I'm smitten even though I probably wouldn't be able to walk in them. I totally have footwear on the brain this week.

Style : Rain Boots

April 15, 2013

April is traditionally a month filled with rain so it's a good thing rain boots have come a long way in terms of style and options. I adore the sleek chic silhouette of my knee high black Loeffler Randall LR Boots but lately I've been thinking about adding a shorter pair as well. Rena prefers red wellies. Check out how she wears them here. Do you wear rain boots? What style do you favor?

New Prints In My Etsy Shop

April 8, 2013

I just added a couple of new prints to my Etsy shop. It's actually been awhile since I've worked on my shop. With illness getting the better of me last year, I really wasn't able to shoot as much as I wanted to. This is something I'm working to change now and some new shoots with Rena & Ian definitely also figure into my plans. Please stop by and have a browse and get 20% off on all orders and free domestic US shipping with the code SPRING20 through April 20.

Rena & Ian : Cherry Blossom Love

April 5, 2013
On Rena: Dress: Mulan Barbie // On Ian: Suit: Vintage Ken

Rena and Ian share a sweet moment under the bloom of the cherry blossoms. There's just something so romantic about sakura blossoms isn't there? The above photo is available as a print in my Etsy shop.

I shot these images a few years ago when the blooms were particularly beautiful and abundant in the garden downstairs. Cherry blossom season is Rena and Ian's favorite time of year. It's one of mine as well.

Eye Candy : Acte de Grace

April 1, 2013

Spring looks to be in bloom in Manhattan in this charming editorial photographed by Frances Tulk-Hart for Air France Madame magazine, which reimagines model Sam Rayner as a modern day princess a la Grace Kelly complete with ladylike fashions befitting a royal. Wouldn't it be just fabulous to pose in a lovely dress amidst the flowers on Park Avenue? It's finally starting to feel a little more Spring-like as the temperatures are actually reaching the 60's in NYC today. Have a fantastic week everyone!
