Winter White

Around the holidays, everything seems to be more amped up, more intense, more exciting, and more decadent. We go big or we go home. So this week I am thrilled to share these photos from an extra special 2-part shoot I did with the magical Heather Kincaid and Fiore Beauty. We frolicked in the woods, we happened upon trees trimmed with lights and baubles in the wild, we bonded with woodland animals. I love working with those girls.

I am definitely a girl who loves white all year round. In the winter it's such a refreshing contrast to the usual darkness of the season and it reminds me of fluffy fresh snow. In this look, it was fun to mix the varying glamorous textures and tones of white with accents of the color of the moment, oxblood. The Fiore team made the look come to life with hair guru Larisa's sassy Bardot tousled waves, and makeup maven Allison's space odyssey metallic lips (and just wait til the next round when you'll get a closer look at the mani from holiday heaven).

I never used to obsess over bras. As much as I enjoy the beauty of a lovely underpinning, I would usually save my splurges for the pieces that are visible to the world... that is, until I learned about Marlies Dekkers bras from my friend Alison, owner of the most luscious luxury lingerie boutique in Los Angeles, Faire Frou Frou. When she told me these bras were "extra strappy" and "meant to be seen," I was all ears because let's face it - our bras do tend to peek out from a gappy button-up or an unintentionally sheer tee. So I can't help but be excited at the idea of a bra that says "Yep, you're supposed to see me. I'm a part of the outfit, thank you very much." I'm slowly filling my lingerie drawer with these bras, and I intend for them to dominate my whole darn collection.
