MY FASHION BFF THIS SPRING...FLORAL.

THE TITLE OF MY POST PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP HOW I'M FEELING ABOUT THE FLORAL MOVEMENT WE'RE SEEING EVERYWHERE THIS SPRING, BUT LET ME SAY A FEW MORE WORDS TO FURTHER CONVEY WHAT IT IS I LOVE ABOUT THIS ULTRA FEMININE TREND!

TURNS OUT I'M A BIT MORE INDECISIVE THAN I'D LIKE TO ADMIT. THAT'S WHY FLORALS AND I GET ALONG SO WELL. WITH ALL THE PRINTS TO CHOOSE FROM, I NEVER HAVE TO PICK JUST ONE!

 TAKE THIS TREND FROM RUNWAY TO STREET STYLE BY PAIRING YOUR FAVORITE FLORAL PIECE WITH A SOLID HUE, THE TWO WILL COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF COMPETING FOR ATTENTION. 


             




HOW CUTE IS THIS OVERSIZED BALOON AND TASSLE THAT CHRISTY FROM ADORN EVENT STYLING MADE ME? WE ADDED IT INTO THE SHOOT AT THE LAST SECOND BECAUSE IT MATCHED PERFECTLY WITH THE VIBE OF THE OUTFIT!

FOR THE LOVE ... A BEAUTY AND FASHION EVENT

SALT LAKE CITY IS PACKED FULL OF BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, MANY OF WHICH ALSO HAPPEN TO BE CREATIVE MASTERMINDS. I WANTED AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET AS MANY OF THESE INSPIRING PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.  
SO WHATS THE BEST WAY TO HANG WITH A BUNCH OF RAD PEOPLE ? HAVE A PARTY OF COURSE ! THAT'S STEP ONE, AND ABOUT THE EXTENT OF WHAT I HAD FIGURED OUT. HOWEVER, THANKS TO A COUPLE INDIVIDUALS WHO REALLY KNOW HOW TO THROW A PARTY, WE WERE ABLE TO CREATE "FOR THE LOVE".

FIRST AND FOREMOST, I WANT TO THANK MY GOOD FRIEND, SARA LUND. SHE IS THE CREATOR AND OWNER OF UTAH'S BEST KEPT SECRET, THE REST. WITHOUT HER DRIVE, CREATIVITY, AND VISION I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SPACE TO HOLD MY EVENT . SERIOUSLY GUYS, NEXT TIME YOU'RE IN DOWNTOWN SLC, STOP IN AND HAVE A HANDCRAFTED COCKTAIL AND A BITE TO EAT. (THE BEER CAN CHICKEN IS MY FAV). YOU WILL FEEL 10X COOLER NOW THAT YOU KNOW THIS PLACE EXISTS.

CONTINUE SCROLLING DOWN THE LINE TO SEE/READ MORE ABOUT THE EVENT AND EVERYONE WHO HELPED MAKE MARCH 15th, 2014 A NIGHT TO BE REMEMBERED.


THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO DONATED YOUR AMAZING FASHION AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO HOOK OUR GUESTS UP WITH SOME AMAZING SWAG! GO TO FORTHELOVESLC.COM AND CLICK  "ABOUT" TO FIND A LINK TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO THE SWAG BAGS!



 SARA INTRODUCED ME TO LAUREN BRADY,  CO OWNER OF SAUCY AND KITSCH. SHE WAS ABLE TO TAKE MY JUMBLED MESS OF A VISION AND TURN IT INTO AN ACTUAL REAL LIFE -FUNCTIONING EVENT. LAUREN AMAZED ME EVERYDAY WITH HER ORGANIZATION AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL. CHRISTY LUDVIGSON FROM ADORN EVENT STYLING ASSISTED LAUREN WITH FABULOUS GEO DECOR THAT COMPLIMENTED THE SPACE PERFECTLY. I DON'T HAVE A CRAFTY BONE IN MY BODY, AND I DONT NEED TO AS LONG AS I HAVE LAUREN AND CHRISTY IN MY LIFE!

SHADNA AUM FROM UGLY MAG IS SOME TYPE OF GRAPHIC ART GOD/CREATIVE GENIUS! HE CAME UP WITH THE "FOR THE LOVE" LOGO AND ART DETAIL TO BE SEEN EVERYWHERE FROM THE  INVITATIONS TO THE SWAG BAGS, AS WELL AS FOR THE LOVE PHOTOBOOTH. HE WAS ALSO THE CREATOR OF MY BEAUTIFUL WEBSITE, FORTHELOVESLC.COM SHADNA HAD THE PLEASURE OF RECEIVING ABOUT 100 EMAIL'S FROM ME, EACH TIME JUST ASKING FOR "ONE MORE THING".  


MR. CALEB IS THE BAR MANAGER FOR THE REST. HE HANDCRAFTED EACH OF THESE SPECIALTY COCKTAILS FOR THE EVENT.. I CAME UP WITH THE NAMES OF COURSE ! :) 

THE "FOR THE LOVE" - THE BEST TASTING DRINK I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE! ORDER ONE NEXT TIME YOU DINE AT THE REST...YOU WONT REGRET IT. 

SHANNON ELIZABETH  HAS BEEN WITH ME SINCE THE BEGINNING AND WAS THE ONLY PHOTOGRAPHER I WOULD TRUST TO CAPTURE EVERY LAST DETAIL OF THIS SPECIAL EVENT. IN MY OPINION, HER WORK IS ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS. 

I WAS IN FLORAL HEAVEN THANKS TO ALLIE KESLER FROM SCENEMAKERS  .
EVERYONE WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY WITH HER BEAUTIFUL FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS AND ALL THE FINISHING DETAILS SHE ADDED..I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO TELL HER THAT PYRITE IS MY FAV! 





MY ALL TIME FAVORITE ARTIST WAS PRETTY MUCH ON REPEAT ALL EVENING...





























BODEGA & THE REST ARE LOCATED ON 331 S. MAIN ST. SLC, UT. 

AN EXTRA SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO TOOK THE TIME OUT OF LIFE'S ALREADY BUSY SCHEDULE TO HELP MAKE THIS EVENING A REALITY. I CONSIDER MYSELF BEYOND LUCKY TO HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE WILLING TO DIVE IN AND GET THERE HANDS DIRTY IN HONOR OF CREATING A LITTLE MAGIC.
 - YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE...
