{Fashion Friday}

So, I’m just going to come out and say it…I *LOVE* JCREW.  I just can’t say enough good stuff about their clothing.  It’s all so hip, yet so classic at the same time.  The outfits look so current, yet also timeless–it’s the perfect combination.  I refer a ton of my clients to JCrew, not only for themselves, but for their children.  Their Crewcuts line for children is to.die.for.

So for this edition of Fashion Friday, I found an outfit from JCrew’s site that will teach us a lot about texture.

Texture always makes an outfit look more intriguing to the eye.  And they did a fabulous job piecing this outfit together.  Check out the fabulous tweed skirt, chunky cardigan, and the lace tights–all different textures added together, yet it looks FABULOUS.  And then adding accessories brings another type of texture to the outfit.  They also did a fabulous job layering the outfit…which you will find throughout their site.  But layering is a whole other blog post for a whole other day!

So when piecing that outfit together for your next session, don’t let texture scare you.  It was pulled off perfectly above.  And if you are saying, “yeah, but I don’t think I would be that great piecing an outfit together.”  No no no!  Because I am more than willing to help you out in your styling dilemmas, and JCrew offers a COMPLIMENTARY personal shopper program!  Check it out!

So here we go!  I’m so excited to start this new journey with you all on my new blog.  I’ve been waiting dying for my new logo, and I believe it was well worth the wait.  If you know me, I think it fits my personality well…it’s fun and a bit funky!  I’d like to thank the insanely talented Brent Holloman for all of his work on my new logo.  Not only is he a talented graphic designer, but he is also musically inclined and in a band called Beta Radio…definitely check out their album, they have some great music!  And here is just a bit of the eye-candy Brent created for me…

So on that note…welcome to my new home.  I hope you stop by often and leave lots of love!  Please update your RSS feeders to reflect the updated blog address!  NO MORE BLOGGER, BABY!!  I wouldn’t want you to miss out on all the fun we are bound to have together here on the new blog.  And welcome to my new “big girl blog”!
