Meet "Autumn Belle" & Enter the Lookbook Giveaway!

Have you met "Autumn Belle"? If you haven't, please view our latest Autumn lookbook!

Tiffany and I flew across the country to Plymouth, Massachusetts to meet up with Stephanie and the rest of the crew. Once again, the lookbook was shot and directed by talented Stephanie Williams, stunning makeup/hair by KC Witkamp, and beautiful model, Rose. The East coast was simply amazing and the scenery -- breathless. Tiff and I were lucky enough to stay in Boston one of the nights. Wished it was longer, but we loved every minute of it. Although, driving around with all the one way streets was pretty confusing =/. I made more U-Turns in a week in Boston, then a year at home in California!

OKAY, so here's to "Autumn Belle". Enjoy!!!



Once again, along with every lookbook launch so far, comes a giveaway! This one was a bit delayed, but better late than never. We will be giving away the Sherwood Vines Knit Dress.

Gorgeous! I'm totally in love with this lookbook. I liked all these photos, they inspired so much!

Most of all I like outfit where the long cardigan is over another cardigan with roses and ruffle skirt.

And my favorite scene is the girl in a yellow coat in the boat.

My favorite outfit would have to be the darling floral blouse and skirt combo in pink under the ( i want to say more of a grey brown, perfect fall color) long sweater.

I will be posting the lookbook on my blog.

Kamiel D. said...

My favorite outfit from the Lookbook is definitely "bold & warm" because of the amazingly colored dress and how nice it looks layered over the white top. My favorite Lookbook scene is "urban and chic". I love the way the trees surrounds the old train tracks.

Alanna Bayer said...

I love everything in this lookbook but my favorite look would have to be the floral cardigan with the chunky cardigan on top paired with the tiered lace skirt. Its the perfect mixture of girly with a little edge. Love it!

-Alanna Bayer

Brooke Harrison said...

I love this lookbook. It's so natural and and the clothes are beautiful. I think my favorite outfit is the Camellia Japonica Sweater Dress with the seasons of love gathered neck top, tights, and rugged knee high boots. The colors are bold and bright but it is definitely a fall outfit. It looks warm and comfortable, and very stylish. I would wear this outfit.
The canoe on the blue river waters is my favorite scene. The trees in the background are so green and the water looks so peaceful. The sun is glinting off of the water and it appears to be a truly beautiful day.

- Brooke H.

Abbi H.T. said...

I love the Earth and Bloom outfit! She looks so cozy. the perfect fall look. It's also my favorite scene. The little cottages and garden make me think of a scene right out of the book Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I picture her listening to an Iron & Wine album while tending to her veggies.

MJ said...

My favorite outfit is the one in front of the greenhouse with the mustard scarf and navy cardigan.

My favorite scene is the rowboat scene

ergoagape said...

I love the sophistication page with the Sherwood Vines dress...so lovely with the sun shining on the models' hair and the blurry barn and country scene behind...

britt6 said...

My favorite outfit is "A Natural Beauty," simply because not only is it functional and casual but it is also cute. My favorite scene is "She's the Winds Muse" because it looks very ethereal, like a scene from a movie. Your model in this sessions lookbook is absolutely stunning.

My favorite outfit is the one inspired by earth and bloom. It reminds me of the reality of my life! I am a farm girl and have to be practical in what I wear but love to be fashionble and put together too.

Zoia said...

My favorite scene is the one of earth and bloom, which makes me feel the touch of the sun at my grandma's village house back in Europe...sweet memories. Thanks for bringing them up! And the sweet belle look is my favorite outfit because that's exact the way i feel now: flirty tenderness with the touch of autumn coziness...

Rachelli said...

Favourite picture is the canoe on the lake in a Breathtaking Moment. Absolutely stunning. Favourite look is the Greenhouse Effect, because it looks classic but also very down to earth (maybe that's just the Chard she's holding though...one of my favourite veggies :D)
Rachel C.

Jenn... said...

My favourite outfit is on page 2. It's something that I would love to put together and wear. I love the scene with this outfit as well, but my absolute favourite scene is the photo on page 11! It is GORGEOUS! The lighting is breathtaking and the colours so rich.
