The lovely Stephanie Patent of IPM Model Management graced the covers of Curvysta Magazine’s, www.curvysta.com, last issue for Winter 2015. This series of Bohemian loveliness, was shot in a cul de sac, in front of my home. We have areas in the development that are protected forest preservation filled with foxes and deer. It was the perfect backdrop for this shoot. Of course, my neighbors were amazed by the entourage and equipment. One thought we were filming a movie.
I picked up the comfy, fluffy coat at Madrags for $29.99, the white tunic dress is from Ashley Stewart-$39.99, http://www.ashleystewart.com, the hats were from Charlotte Rouse-$15 each and the handmade leather accessories were from Amber Poitier, www.amberpoitier.com. Her pieces elevated the editorial. The quality of the leather and weight are incomparable. Worth every dime.

The casual and effortless grace of the “Jill Alexander” woman is easily attainable with her new collection seen at PNO 2015. The soft color palette and luxe stretch fabrics were eye candy. Her use of purple to accent her lighter pieces were perfect to fight the upcoming winter doldrums. Her fringe technique on her skirts and dresses were on trend and are perfect for the curvy woman, who can carry off a little more than a smaller body type. The lovely, Jeannie Ferguson started the showcase off with the ivory fringed sheath, perfect for the holidays or an evening out. Nicole Zepeda and Ariella Vazquez were graceful ballerinas in their ballet inspired wrap dresses and soft, neutral color palettes. The ‘piece de resistance’, was Vicky Poole in the beautifully designed gold print finale dress. Perfect for the holidays! This collection just might get me through winter while I’m “California dreaming”.
TRU DIVA DESIGNS by Veronica Lipscomb graced the Plus Night Out runway 9/17/15 for the second time in two years.
This year’s TRU DIVA collection included textured and luxe fabrics to compliment every curve. My favorites were the naval inspired hi-low ivory jacket with gold button accents, worn by Jeannie Ferguson and the knit body-con maxi dress worn by Sommer Green. I can see myself wearing it with cowboy boots for day wear or with heels for an evening affair. Perfect for day to night. Any woman wearing her dresses will feel like they’re on a runway. Placing my order tonight!
