I had so much fun styling this shoot and I used my good friend Brittany as my model muse for the week! We got a chance to collaborate on a few looks and working with this beauty was so easy! When I style a woman I am always mindful of her strengths and I love to highlight those assets.  My vision for this shoot was to simply dress a woman who enjoys life and does not like to make a big fuss of her wardrobe choices. This woman is uncomplicated and confident but doesn’t take her self too seriously. She embodies an effortless level of chicness and prefers simple over gaudy any day. This woman is well-dressed and she knows it!


Simple styling in this look was strong enough to uplift a little black dress. This A-line garment paired well with leather over-the-knee boots which added a level of edge to an other wise softer ensemble. Minimal jewelry played a subtle role in pulling this look all together. 

Another fun look we did was a simple black body suit paired with high waisted dark denim. To brighten up the simple pairing we added a fun faux-fur vest.


A simple black ankle boot added another level of cool and was all that was needed to complete this look.

This third look is my personal fave. A classic black turtle neck is always a fall/winter staple and it pairs easily with many other pieces. We decided to pair one classic with another: The leather midi-skirt


A fun, eclectic black pump added a modern twist to this uniformed look. A black topper was the exclamation point that also gave some flair to this modest ensemble.

For a more dressed up look, a deep-plunging little black midi dress was the statement piece. The LBD is always a go-to and is flattering on women of all shapes and sizes.


A simple pair of black pumps was all that was needed to solidify this classic yet strong look.

This last look is fun and youthful and it is for the woman with an edgier side. Rule-of-thumb: Leather paired with lace is NEVER a bad idea!


A lace cami and leather skater skirt was coupled with a pair of leather combat boots. The ease of this combination created a bold yet functional look that can be worn with confidence.

As I wrap up this post I can’t help but think how thrilled I am to share all the exciting ideas I have been working on this year.  I hope to create a platform for good taste and creative ideas and I am so thankful for all the support. Stay tuned for my #OOTD post. This is going to be an exciting year!!

P.S. When in doubt.. #wearblack #theory
