Styling Portfolio

After searching and searching for a site where I could host my stylist portfolio, I finally found somewhere suitable. I am the newest member of the Krop Creative Database!

I host my portfolio there, with my own custom domain and I'm able to edit my profile as freely as I like. It's a great tool and I recommend it to models, photographers, and other stylists that want somewhere to host their portfolio. It's very professional looking (and your portfolio should be professional looking. No I'm clearly having a photo shoot in a house shots allowed.).

Fitting Room Chronicles

On Saturday, I headed out to run a few errands. My work schedule and the boutique have been keeping me so busy that I'm I rarely have time to go out anywhere much less get dressed up.

So when I realized that I was in desperate need of groceries and tired of opening up the refrigerator every 15 minutes like food would magically appear, I chose this ensemble.

Sheer long sleeve shirt, leather/mesh leggings, and an ankle strap wedge. I added a few simple pieces of jewelry and then I was on my way.

The RAD! Shop

I've been having so much fun working towards my online boutique opening. It's certainly been challenging (filling out paperwork, receiving and returning samples, and finding merchandise) but I have been loving every second of it. I'm so proud of all the work I've got done and the progress that I'm making and I can't wait to share the finished product with everyone! :)

I got my logo finished up finally and the reception to it was amazing! I'm in the process of getting it copy written and then I will be one step closer to making my dreams a reality and opening up The RAD! Shop.

Do You Like Drugs?

The RAD! Shoot

This past Sunday, I styled another shoot with Dior. This time I got to style her in some pieces from my upcoming boutique, The RAD! Shop. The scenery was very edgy and I loved playing with the looks so that they meshed with each backdrop.

Check out some photos below!

Cassie x Forever 21

Cassie has been on a roll lately! After the release of her new mixtape, RockaBye Baby which featured artists such as Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa, it has been announced that she is now the face of Forever 21!

Forever 21 provides affordable apparel for the fashionista in all of us, and I have been a little impressed with their Spring 2013 collection.

Check out Cassie wearing some looks from the new collection below:

Beyonce For H&M

If you read my blog then you know that I am a HUGE Beyonce fan! I was ecstatic when I heard that she was going to be coming out with a collection with H&M!

Today some of the ads came out and they showcased Beyonce in trendy bikinis and a chic dress!

I don't know about you, but these photos gave me the inspiration I needed to go a little bit harder in the gym! She looks totally amazing!

And I wouldn't expect anything less from the King...

The RAD! Shop

The RAD! Shop is coming along beautifully! I'm on track for an early summer opening date and I could not be more thrilled!

In addition to my jewelry that I handmade, I will be selling apparel (some of the clothing will be my designs!), footwear, and accessories (including other types of jewelry, handbags, and hats. etc.).

Check out some of the merchandise that will be available!

"Shoe game is awesome..."

Playing around in one of my bikini samples for The RAD! Shop! Yellow is a huge trend this season, ladies!

Do Work

So this past Thursday, I styled a shoot at Piedmont Park with an up and coming model named Dior. She was so gorgeous and full of energy and I had so much fun at the shoot that it definitely did not feel like work!

The shoot was outside and had a Spring theme, so I made sure to incorporate bright prints, neons, and tons of strappy sandals into the shoot.

Check out the three looks I created below:

Match the intensity of a boldly-printed dress with colorful sandals.

When mixing prints, make sure the prints have at least one color in common so you look trendy, not tacky.

Neons look great when paired with neutrals and minimal jewelry.

Just An Update

I've been completely absent from my blog lately. I've been hard at work on so many different things that I've been neglecting my first baby, my blog.

However, I'm back now and I plan on being more consistent with my posting. At least three posts a week!

Here's to hoping I stick to it!
