Custom flower girl dresses I designed for Ashley Brook Perryman-Straubinger's beautiful wedding day under the live oak trees. Photographs by Sully Sullivan.
   This fun photostory is by Elizabeth Pettey for Babiekins Magazine. Elizabeth is a new contributor to the Babiekins blog and photographed a few of my designs for her first blog post. Elizabeth's contagious energy and excitement shows in her work every time and I am loving the feeling of these. The pictured outfits are from the Spring 2013 collection: Blue Zig Zag dress, Wedgwood dress (available here), and the Pink Jacaranda coat. I am currently at work on new select pieces for Spring 2014 and looking forward to sharing soon!

Recently, Ooh Events invited me to decorate a holiday table that would serve as inspiration as part of their Style Maven's event. It was such a dream to be able to choose items from the 25,000 sq ft warehouse to create just about any theme we wanted. I chose to stick with one color scheme, yellow, orange, peach and chose vintage silverware, plates and situated everything on a big farm table. Lastly, I think what pulls a table together, are the flowers, so I went with branches, fruit and berries. You can read more about this event here and here. I had so much fun working with other creatives, Chassity, Deirdre, Sally and Perri! and sipping cocktails from the local company Squeeze, and trying all the beautiful desserts from Wild flower pastry (especially those dark chocolate sea salt caramel tarts) Thank you, OOh Events! It was a beautiful day. Photographs by Clay Austin.
