the secret project…revealed






can you guess what my big secret was….well today i finally get you tell you all about my project with SILPADA! yes, all caps SILPADA!!

this was such an amazing experience and i can't wait to do it again. okay, okay i'll slow down a sec. i was asked if i do wardrobe styling for photo shoots by a friend that works Silpada. i literally almost fell out of my chair when she asked me (definitely a God thing). i went in and pitched myself, what i could do, and how i could help them. they sent over their paperwork and i got on the grind. i called and pulled all the perfect pieced for the shoot. then monday morning 5:30am alarm blared and i jumped out of bed in excitement for what was about to happen, my dreams were coming true! it was three full days of hanging, steaming, pulling, dressing, undressing, pinning, and taping to create the perfect looks for them. i was absolutely blown away by how amazing their team is. we totally went in with the same mind set and goals and the outcome is beautiful. above are just some of the behind the scenes of the shoot. don't worry, i''ll have more gorgeous pics to share come october. 

but until then i wanted to list where we found these amazing pieces:
dillard's oak park - all the shoes we could dream off. thank you matt! go and ask for eva is one talented lady! i adore these flats, these booties, and these heels that we used over and over again!
frankly basic - check out silpada's insta for more pics
ruby rouge - check out silpada's insta and new catalog
clique boutique - the gorgeous buttery ivory leather top and gray jeans look gorgeous on mika above! 
ode - sent us some amazing pieces you will see in the catalog on online!

altar'd state - a gorgeous sweatshirt was used, along with the perfect maroon skirt for pics that will be in the next catalog
j.crew factory at the legends - those boyfriend jeans mika is rocking and much, much, more
