Hellooooo to all my wonderful fans! I have become so wrapped up in other parts of my career that I have been absent lately from my fashion blog. Thanks everyone for your patience!
Do you ever have a day in your life that is absolutely perfect? I had a day like that recently. I was the creative director and photographer for an epic, day-long shoot at designer Dori's estate in Beverly Hills. There were so many fabulous photos from that shoot that I will spread them out through a few posts. The models I cast turned up bubbly, gorgeous, and delightful, the clothes were ooo-la-la fabulous, the jewelry and bling was sparkling, the makeup and hair people worked magic, the stylist pulled some additional lovely clothes, my enterpising photography assistant Vince was a dream -- and it was the perfect day, warm, sunny, one of those California spring days that make you feel dreamy, all tingly and content. It was like one big fashion party, but even better -- a photo-shoot!
In this post I am lingering over the phenomenon of the light, spring/summer coat...
