Celeb Engagements: Everybody's Doing It

It seems like we’re experiencing a wave of celeb engagements as of late, so it’s only fitting that Over the Moon asked me to put my wedding thinking cap on and imagine what the ze stars’ wedding styles will be. I give you Ariana Grande, Priyanka Chopra, and Hailey Baldwin and their respective maybe-they’ll-wear-something-like-this looks, as styled by moi.

A Blast from the Past: Eleanora Magazine

The assignment: what would three fashion icons of yesteryear wear today? It came from Ellie Morrison, editor of digital magazine Eleanora, digital director of The Society Diaries, and the voice behind editorial site Oh, Eleanora. My task was made all the more greater knowing it would be featured in the inaugural September issue of Eleanora, a digital magazine conceived to inspire the female experience by connecting the past with the present.

Needless to say, I was inspired - not only by the subjects of my collages (famed Editor in Chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Carmel Snow, her right-hand Fashion Editor who went on to become Editor in Chief of Vogue, Diana Vreeland, and Richard Avedon, Snow’s photographer), but by the host of talented creatives (film photographer Rahm Carrington and my artist crush Kelly O’Connor, to name a few) I was able to join in helping introduce such a special project. Check out the magic here.

Plaid-a-Palooza

What is September if not waiting for the weather to cool up a smidge so you can start wearing your fall staples? It's especially dificil deep in the heart of Texas, where fall staples - at least for the next couple of months - translates to the same thing you'd wear during the summer, just in fall-friendly prints and colors. So me thinks its time to officially usher in plaid - a print synonymous with all things fall/winter - even if you're just rocking it in mini-version. Pair it with some hunter green suede or leopard print and bada bing, bada boom you've (almost) forgotten its a high of 90° this week.

Hold On To Summer

I feel no sort of rush to stop wearing summer clothes, which may or may not be because Houston is sure to continue feeling like a sauna for another two months (at least). So I'm keeping it easy breezy on here for now and giving you a (hopefully) nice break from the velvets and furs that are dominating your air waves. Keep the spritzes a'coming.

Dress For The Ring You Have

I know I can't be making this up... and if memory serves me right, back in the day when I used to get drunk off wedding magazines, there were often engagement-ring personality quizzes - a'la if you're x, then you're a princess cut or if you're y, round's the shape for you.

Gone are my days of wedding magazines (replaced by wedding websites), gone are the days of personality quizzes (by this point I should know), and gone are the days of wondering what my engagement ring will look like (yo-ho, yo-ho, an emerald-cut life for me). But I did my own form of creative reminiscing when Over the Moon asked me to put looks together inspired by different engagement ring styles. And here you have it.
