Over the weekend we had the pleasure to be a part of the Reach Out & Read fundraiser! We were teamed up with the Old Lyme Inn and had a blast designing the table which was Princess and the Pea! Here are a few shots from my iPhone! What a great fundraiser to be involved with. Thank you Josh Chalmbers from Earth 2 Company for including us in this great night!
Like most 30 something girls, I love fashion and have bought my fair share of designer pieces. One thing about fashion though, what you loved today you may not love next season but sometimes it’s just SO hard to part with that piece that you once lusted for. That’s where Fashion Project comes in. This genius concept, dreamed up by two fashion loving ladies, not only gets you to clean out your closet but also inspires you to clean that closet for charity. What’s better than a marriage between fashion + charity? The fact that it is the easiest process ever, go on fashionproject.com, choose your favorite charity listed there OR add your own, choose a FREE prepaid donation bag, print a FREE pre-paid label, and within 3-5 days you’ll receive your donation bag, fill it up and ship it back! Your clothes/accessories are then resold on fashionproject.com where 55% of the net proceeds go to charity. Could anything be more simple? And here is a HUGE, HUGE bonus; I know you’d do this out of the kindness of your heart because you’re probably a charitable angel BUT Fashion Project wants to reward you for parting with that bag you once loved, so for every 5 items that qualify, depending on their list of designers that’s on their website, you get a $40 Nordstrom gift card. And guess what? It’s Spring-cleaning season, I know what you are doing this weekend!
We are over the moon excited to share this photo shoot for many reasons! We had the pleasure working with some of the best in Boston at a new and fun venue 9OFS in the heart of Boston! Head on over to Style Me Pretty today to see the full feature! A big hug and kiss to all involved on this shoot!
For the design we wanted the table to feel modern and chic yet elegant and timeless. Set on the rooftop in downtown Boston this new venue created the perfect backdrop for our city shoot. We used a palette of deep plums, peaches, lilac and creamy whites and gold and silver. Using mirrored chargers and lucite chairs we brought in a few modern details and combined them with the mix of metallics, fine china, glassware and copper flatware to create an elegant tablescape.
I am sure you have heard of the crown jewel of all things wedding shopping, BHLDN, finally taking it’s gorgeous act offline and opening it’s first East Coast shop-in-shop in Chestnut Hill, Ma on March 14th. Boston is welcoming this with open arms. From gorgeous wedding gowns that defy tradition, bridesmaid dresses your maids dream of and accessories that you’ll never want to take off, BHLDN is definitely worth a trip…or two. Set in it’s mother store, Anthropologie, the store is as gorgeous as the merchandise it carries. This is totally serving as our inspiration today because tonight we get the pleasure of attending a fashion show there with some of our favorite industry friends Petal Floral, mStarr Event Design, Ceremony Boston, Mayflour Confections and Hello Love Photography. Stay tuned for pics!
