I love fall fashion with all my heart! So this styling is dedicated to autumn! I am also celebrating the release of my latest jewelry collection which was a year in the making. The dress is by Made Well. I thrifted it from Poshmark. Shout out to Blackmoore for the outdoor backdrop setup.
I like to get my clothing second hand or custom made but Some times find cute things in the most random places.
The socks were a gift from years ago. They are my favorite frilly socks to wear. Some how I have two pair. That’s how cute they are. The shoes are from Akira Chicago in Andersonville. The heart sunglasses are from Five Below.
I like to keep my makeup simple so I only have on a few essentials. Mascara and lip by Honest Beauty. Eye liner by Haus Labs. My belt is from one of my great grandparents. Necklace and Heart rings from Phase Two of the Transmutation Collection by Citrine Tangerine. Silver rings by Glenn Lehrer.
Feels so good to dress up and take a few pics! If I go to long without seeing myself, I get kinda down
Paint palette brooch is from an antique shop in central NY. The back says Spain. The pendant on the necklace Is from the same antique shop in Little Falls, NY. now that I think about it! 😂🧡
Wrap bracelets are my everyday jewelry, these normally never leave my wrist. One of my bracelets, made by me, features sunstone, Rhodochrosite, citrine, labradorite, and one faceted moldavite. The other was made by my partner Craig. Another featured jewelry piece, Compassion Rings, is one of my daily wears. It's made with brass wire and soft pink Rhodochrosite heart shaped beads. Rhodochrosite is an essential gemstone to wear on a daily basis. It’s known to reduce stress and anxiety while encouraging us to heal ourselves with pure love.
Shout out to Melania for always being a fashion inspiration and taking these fire photos with my new camera! We’ve been popping back and fourth with cameras for years now and I always feel the best when we work together. You’re an icon!
Oh yea.. and if you noticed my nails in that close up from before, let me put you on! I used essie holographic nail polish color ‘you’re a gem’ (1569). It dries so fast! I can’t believe it! I typically do 2 coats then add a top coat. The top coat I’ve been using is by Sally Hansen. Mega Strength Ultra Shine Top Coat. It works pretty great and also dries quite fast!
