Birmingham Magazine

Hi guys, awhile ago I mentioned that I had the opportunity to do some styling work for a local magazine here in Michigan.  Doing a photo shoot is a lot of work, but incredibly enjoyable.  Imagine how fun it would be to go to some of the best boutiques in the state and have your pick of the store.  At one boutique alone, I borrowed approximately $7,000 worth of merchandise.  If only it was mine to keep…

The topic of my assignment was to style a summer swimsuit page.  I started with this beautiful teal colored asymmetrical bikini and was thrilled after shopping several stores, to finally find the perfect dress to be worn as a beach cover up.  What’s striking about the dress, is the flexibility in dressing it up or down; you could go straight from the pool to a nice restaurant without feeling self-conscious at all. 

You may not be able to see the type, but the silver sandals are Valentino and they were amazing.  Too bad this stylist doesn’t have the budget to pay the $675 to buy them…

Here is an alternate page that I styled for the magazine.  This pool side look includes a bikini that will definitely draw a second look with it’s trendy animal print and bold jeweled embellishments.

I was absolutely over-the-moon for these Lanvin sandals; falling in love with the pink bow.  I think these sandals may be a Tender (the name of the boutique) exclusive.  I looked everywhere online and could not find the exact same pair.  The price on these covetable catwalkers you ask?  $995.
