I’m so excited to be contributing to this issue of Flutter Magazine. I’m sharing how to make a floral headdress which you can check out right here. Also, my chocolate editorial with Jessica Foster is right here (photos by the sweet Josh Gruetzmacher). And a big congrats to my girl Joy on the cover!
For the first setup of the day, I had a few adriondecks brought in from Found, pillows from Yeah Rentals and I brought a funky wicker side table and put my big brass swan filled with wax flowers on top of it.
For flowers, I wanted it to be very loose and very spring… I used lilac, tulips, ranunculus and jasmine vine. The basket was a thrift store find (love the aqua and blue pattern) and the main table’s container was from Anthropologie. Plates, flatware and glassware available for rental for the amazing Casa de Perrin.
After shooting the table and one look on the docks, we moved to the boat…
This dress didn’t make it into the magazine, but I’m obsessed with it! Its Rachel Zoe and the dress moves so pretty in the wind… I accessorized with a few chunky gold necklaces and a gold hammered cuff. Big thank you again to all who helped contribute!
I was so honored to do the Spring Harbor editoiral for Rue and to get the cover no less! The editorial came about when I saw Anne at the Design Sponge book signing in LA. Jose Villa and I had already been talking about a lifestyle shoot for a while and this seemed like the perfect venue for it. (Above aidrondeck from Found, the view of the pier, and the “crew” from left: myself, Cynthia Beard of Life Styled, Anne Sage of Rue & City Sage, Diana of Casa de Perrin, Rebecca Buenik, Jessica Nicole, and Jeni of Found Vintage Rentals).
I’ve sailed the Santa Barbara Harbor a few times before, so I knew the view of the shore would make the perfect backdrop for my little “Santa Barbara Chic” inspired editorial. So I went and found the prettiest sailboat I could…
Thank you so much to Rue for the opportunity, Jose Villa for the stunning photos (and willingness to jump from one boat to another to get the overall boat shot– no I’m not kidding), Joel Serrato for his searingly beautiful film, Samantha from Could I have that & Dressed/Ready for letting me borrow all the pretty clothes (and helping me wardrobe style as well), Cat & Amy of Tresor Vintage at 33 Jewels for the pretty baubles, the amazing rentals courtesy of Found, Casa de Perrin and Yeah Rentals, Beta Unit for the hip male wardrobe, Duo Events for the beautiful food, Leslie Lewis Sigler for the hand painted oar menu, Noelle of Chateau Belle for the beautiful hair & makeup, our two models, Brandon & Rachel for rolling with the swells and the Santa Barbara Sailing Center for their pretty boat, Jenny Lane.
I did a litle project Rue with last month and it got the COVER + 14 PAGES! It’s definitely time for some champagne! Photographed by Jose Villa on the Santa Barbara Pier and on a sailboat it was so much fun to create… Tomorrow, I’ll be featuring a little behind the scenes fun… Until then enjoy this peak:
Set in one of the old green house at Dos Pueblos, my inspiration was 1910 England.
We brought the story to life with a wardrobe mix of vintage dresses and some insane Monique Lhuillier wedding gowns.
It was so much fun to design… Enjoy!
Special thanks to the incredible vendor team:
