Think I'm going to need to begin saving my pennies for a piece or Irene's work.

Thursday, July 11, 2013


This week, we worked with a client who was trying to get a better handle on her personal style.
She is a beautiful mix of simple and casual. A classic beauty who loves a wow factor but somehow things felt overly trendy for her to bring into her home and closet. We worked on a board to inspire her to live simply, sans shabby chic.

Sharing a portion of that project in case you need some similar inspiration. Like?

Beauty Inspiration- white shadow

Summer looks are being highlighted in fashion magazines, which has led me to some really beautiful images of models sporting white eyeshadow. I feel like this look could go horribly wrong in the hands of an amateur, so we are vowing to try it out in DS offices this week and see if and how we can make it work. I have a feeling you may need to look like Bredgie Heinen to pull this off gracefully but we'll soon find out and we will share via twitter.

I also want to know what you think: would you try it? 
And if yes- how do you wear your white shadow? 

Overall we agree is looks best with flawless skin and a bit of a glow.

summer style

In the summer (on the days I don't have me feet in the sand) I spend my typical days running around from my home, to meetings, and back to the office again. Hope this overall mix inspire you to live stylishly while getting all of your summer errands completed.
