Last month (early October) I had the pleasure of traveling to Charleston, SC to work with the Draper James team to shoot their holiday collection. We lodged at the historic Wentworth Mansion and the John Rutledge House Inn. I am so excited to finally share these images with you all!
Draper James also had Ashley Brooke from Ashley Brooke Design and Hoang-Kim from Color & Chic for the shoot as well. I had such a great time with those girls. We joked around before and after shooting, shared blogger insight and loaded up on behind the scenes content for one another.The Draper James team were amazing. Everything ran like a well oiled machine, from set time, to hair and makeup. They fed us so much I know I gained a few extra pounds while we were there. We also had fun after shooting. We went sight seeing, made candles and also did a little shopping.
Below is a round up of all of the looks I shot with the girls and by myself. Guys, this was such a dream come true and really shows that hard work really does pay off. The holiday collection is beautiful so make sure you grab your favorites while they are still available.
Who doesn’t love a LBD for the holiday? The velvet dress I am wearing is so flattering and I love the bows on the shoulders. It is incredibly comfortable, chic and just perfect for a holiday party and beyond! I am totally obsessed with the lace details on Ashley’s dress and Hoang-Kim’s plaid sequined dress is adorable.
MAD ABOUT PLAID
These plaid dresses are so adorable. I love Ashley’s shirt dress because I can imagine myself wearing it to a work party. What I like best about the dress I are wearing is the festive green color of course and I think the sleeves add a nice fishing touch.
CASUAL & COMFY
This cream color peplum sweater is so flattering on just about everyone. The color is beautiful on darker skin and I love the detailed lines. My jeans were so comfy and had stretch in them which is my number one requirement when I am looking to purchase jeans.
Did some say pajama party? If I am not busy at life, you can find me at home is a comfy pair of pajamas. These are perfect for the holiday and with Christmas being right around the corner, I can totally see myself and my sisters in the plaid matching set.
