Danielle Bradbery::2014 Awards show season

I thought I would post some pics of some recent work with the adorable Danielle Bradbery. Here are some looks from her performing at the WWO Gala in NYC  followed by the CMA Awards and the BMI Awards. Some notable pieces are her Mason by Michelle Mason white dress, the Mason Stanley lobster claw earrings she is wearing with that, and the Song Sisters mic cuff she is wearing on the CMA red carpet by Lionette. I about died over the piece.

LipGloss Junkie::Fall Faves + A Giveaway!





1 Chloe + Isabel Birthstone Studs:  These are so gorge! I love the variety of colors and the quality is amazing. At $22 a pair, there really is no excuse for not owning every color.
2 Beauty Counter Tint Skin Complexion Coverage:  This is THE BEST tinted moisturizer that I have ever used. In fact, I am in love with every single product they make. The skin care line is so amazing. And best of all? It's totally safe. This company is dedicated to providing the safest skin care possible. Check out their "Never" list here...I highly recommend you try these products! I can't say enough about them.
3 Younique Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liner:  I am sure you have all heard of Younique 3D Fiber lashes. (It is THE BEST mascara I have ever used!) But, they also have a fantastic line of other cosmetics as well. I am LOVING my new eyeliner! It goes on flawlessly, stays on ALL day, and is totally smudge proof. You will LOVE.
Zara Oversized Check Shirt:  Who doesn't love a good checked button up? I especially love this oversized one since I am rocking my 9 month baby bump at the moment. It's pretty much a closet staple that you can pair with that plaid scarf, and you will be set!
5 ASOS Scarf:  I've had my eye on this baby for a while. There is just something super chic about an oversized scarf paired with a basic tee, boots, and a jacket for fall.

OK, time for the deets on the giveaway. We are giving away a pair of the Chloe +Isabel studs (you choose the color!!) and a Younique Eyeliner. All you have to do is comment below (what are you currently crushing on??) and share our blog on your Facebook page. Simple enough! We'll pick a winner next week!

Xoxo-

Wait. This Top is HOW Much?



This top looks so "designer-y" that I kinda can't believe it's from H & M. Unfortunately for me, Beth has done all of our shopping at H & M lately, so I haven't actually seen it in person, but I really, REALLY want it. Doesn't it look like a million bucks? I would wear it with a pencil skirt and red shoes. Where? Well, I'm not sure about that. Around the house? Sure. 

Some of you ladeeez out there who work in creative office environments would knock this one out of the park. This top says, "I see your traditional J. Crew blue oxford, and I raise you a set of trumpet sleeves. I mean bizness, but I also have a stellar personality."



1 H & M Trumpet Sleeve Blouse, $39.95 // 2 Schutz Gilberta Heel, $180 // 3 Bridge Cuff by Collette Ishayama, $200 // 4 Mango Pencil Skirt, $59.99 // 5 Ceri Hoover Cheetah Clutch, $130 // 6 NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, $25

Looking At Online::Fall Edition

I am just dying dying dying over how chic this cape is. Zara getting it so right yet again.
Zara double-sided cape, $169


I LOVE this color corduroy for fall, and a flare, if altered to almost skim the floor 
with a heel is universally flattering. 

This top is SO cute--kinda like a modified bolo tie. I would wear it with flare jeans 
and a cute skinny belt.
Nasty Gal Mod Mode Top, $52

If you're gonna work at a coffee shop, which half of Nashville is, you gotta wear headphones to get work done. Oh, and you pretty much need to have a cloak of invisibility also because you will for sure see someone you know and for sure not get as much work done as you think you should.  
Nixon Stylus Headphones, $130

Really wanting to do some denim on denim action with this skirt. 
7 For All Mankind Button Front Pencil Skirt, $198

Thomas Rhett::"Make Me Wanna" Video

Sometimes your clients ask you to buy them very fitted black suits for videos. Actually that never happens. But miraculously, like NKOTB going on a reunion tour, it happened to me in the last two videos I worked on: Brett Eldredge's "Mean to Me" and this one by Thomas Rhett for "Make Me Wanna."

TR's suit is by The Kooples, a European line that I LOVE for a trim guy. (i.e. this type of suit would not work on a middle linebacker...more like a punter. Just to put it in fall football terms for ya.)

Ok, toot-a-loo. Have a great Monday and enjoy all the many Thomas Rhett's in this video. Which is your favorite? I think he wears that suit pretty darn well myself.

The Perfect Necklace

I used this necklace during some footage we shot of Danielle Bradbery last week, and we all agree that it's the perfect everyday necklace. Would look great for work with a shift dress, would look great layered with some shorter keepsake pieces and a v-neck tee...looks vaguely rock-n-roll with it's dogtag feel, but classic enough to not look like you're actually trying to be a rockstar. You can find this baby at Madewell, and while we're at it...WELCOME TO NASHVILLE, MADEWELL!  We are SO GLAD you finally came to hang :). 

Madewell Ensign Necklace, $48

Transitions::Fall

It's about that time, and I'm SO excited. Fall. When the pumpkin section at Trader Joe's looks like a hurricane is approaching, and when you need to grab a light jacket on the way out the door. One of the most important things in fashion this time of year to get a lotta bang for your buck is knowing how to transition your summer pieces to Fall. You don't need a whole new wardrobe just yet, so a well-placed jacket and a change of shoes can be all you need.

In this outfit that Carrie put together, you have your petal pink summer maxi. You take off the thong sandals, and add a bootie. Exchange your straw clutch for a black leather one. Top it all off with a black moto jacket and 'voila'. We basically stole this girl's look and made it easy for you to shop. In all these pics, summer outfits are slightly tweaked making them Fall-appropriate. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte .




1 Mango pleated maxi dress, $59.99 // 2 F21 Faux Leather Moto Jacket $29.80 // 3 Braided double wrap belt, BCBG, $34 // 4 Fossil Erin Foldover Clutch, $148 // 5 Kelly Wearstler cocktail ring, $147.50 // 6 dv by Dolce Vita booties, $47.99
