Hello my LOVELIES! I had such fun styling my friend Nedra last week. Everything I had her try on looked fabulous. As a former model, hers is the body clothes are meant for. Given that the holidays are coming up, we did a Luxe look.
Still, Nedra made it playful; she made it her own.
Above she is wearing an appliqued lace blouse done on cotton poplin with exquisite pleating at the elbow. It is by Catherine Malandrino via Around Again in Sag Harbor, brand new! Nedra, Instinctively knew that holding the glove to her face would create a bit of mystery and distribute the burst of berry blue, more evenly throughout the frame. Did she also guess that the perfect angle of her arm made the pleats fan out in delicate drama? Probably, yes, and Gerardo did as well.
This shot, above, shows off the workmanship of the blouse as well and the gorgeous pearl and emerald necklace from KCSignatures. I knew the turquoise Kate Spade gloves would look good with this outfit, but I was surprised in the photo how the color came to life.
Below, I converted the photo to black and white to give you a better sense of the details and textures.
This luxe skirt grazing the knee looks perfect to my eyes! More detail shots below: The ring is also by KCSignatures. The bag is handmade in wood and decorated in abalone and mother of pearl. I found it on eBay and it is one of a kind.
Gerardo really got some great detail shots!
The clutch on its own.
I love fine detailing. I also love handcrafted items and supporting small businesses, be it retail, online, or consignment stores. My gloves are from TJ Maxx, that is one large place I do love to shop.
THANK YOU NEDRA AND GERARDO FOR MAKING THIS POST SO BEAUTIFUL!
