Diane Kennedy & Cherry Velvet Photo Shoot Day :)

Today I got to model for Diane Kennedy and Cherry Velvet!  It was so much fun.  We were shooting at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver, B.C.  It was a gorgeous day and the location was beautiful!  Many more photos to come…

The Cherry Velvet Chrissy Dress!

I am obsessed with this new Cherry Velvet print! Pink and blue are my favourite colours. This dress is so happy!

Anniversary Dinner

 

Tonight me and my hubby are going out to celebrate our third wedding anniversary. It’s not technically the day (actual anniversary is August 26th) but when Grandma offers to babysit, you take advantage of it!  I’m wearing a blue Diane Kennedy t-shirt, black jeans from Winners, and a Very Valero necklace.

These jeans were such a steal!  I found them for $11 at Winner’s but they had these awful big, blingy rhinestones on all the pockets and buttons.  I took them to my dry cleaner who also does alterations and she ripped them all off and added just one big black button.  The alterations cost $10 but it was worth it because I love the fit of these jeans.

I actually started dating my husband when I was 15 years old and in grade 10!  It’s freaky but true.  We grew up as neighbours on the same street in a small B.C. town and I was totally obsessed with him right from the start.

Tonight we are baby free and have some gift certificates to The Keg which have been patiently waiting to be used.  Nom nom nom doesn’t steak taste even better when you aren’t paying for it?

Fashion designer, Diane Kennedy, of Cherry Velvet dresses is on her way to the Vegas WWIN show!  She’ll be at booth #634 so if you are in the area you should totally go check it out.

In this photo I am wearing her Cherry Velvet Priscilla dress which is obviously PERFECT for Vegas!

Good luck Diane and have fun! xo

Before & After

Check out these before & after shots of me by Stela Licina.  This shoot was for Cherry Velvet’s upcoming holiday collection! Stela is so talented!  I just can’t get over it.  I love how she does hair and make up.  Very polished without too much product.

Day Outfit

Today I wore a plain t-shirt dress from H&M, a suede jacket from Le Chateau and rather than my pearls I’ve been wearing these pink chewbeads.

I love the chewbeads because they are cute, pink and safe for my baby girl to gnaw on.

I also really love this H&M dress. It was super cheap too! However, if your a Mama like me…it’s a bit short for running around with a baby. I’m pretty sure most of the Winners parking lot saw my ass as I buckled my girl into her car seat.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback to my first ever photo shoot with {LUCY} Clothing and Forever Yours Lingerie.  This was so much fun!  At the time these two boutique stores in Langley, B.C. were owned by the same people, Sonya and Brian Perkins.  Today {LUCY} Clothing is owned by someone else but is still as great as ever.  Sonya and Brian are such great people and still run Forever Yours Lingerie.  If you haven’t been – you should!!  They have an amazing selection of bras and panties.  The customer service is awesome and you’ll leave with great fitting undergarments.

I have aways had…how shall I say?… a voluptuous chest. Haha!  I remember I was shopping at age 15 and just crying my eyes out because none of those bullshit La Senza bras would fit.  The girl at the counter whispered to me about this store and I haven’t been anywhere else since.

Sonya and Brian really helped me gain a lot of confidence.  At the time I did not feel very beautiful.  I always felt insecure about my size.  Modelling these first few times really helped me to see myself in a different way and for the first time in a long time I felt great!

Cherry Velvet photo shoot!

Today was so much fun!  Diane Kennedy who designs Cherry Velvet dresses invited me back to model.  Shimona Henry of Pin-up Perfection Photography was taking & directing the shots and Stela Licina did my amazing hair and make up.  Christine Barham was there hanging out too!  Both Stela and Christine have modelled for Diane as well.

Shimona’s new studio is so awesome!  When I first met her a couple years ago she was working out of an extremely tiny, tiny space on East Hastings in downtown Vancouver.  I’m talking small people!!  Since then she’s had a few different locations but for the next two years she’ll be settled into her new spot.  The new location is set up in the basement of her house.  There’s plenty of room for wardrobe, make up, Shimona’s office, props and backdrops.

I truly love working with ladies.  It’s a fun and collaborative experience and I definitely enjoy dressing up every now and then- especially since I became a Mom!

Here are a few behind the scenes selfies I took today.  The actual shots will be on here eventually.

Wanna lick my cone? lol I love all Shimona's props! @pinupperfectionphotography

Pin Ups & Planes

A few weeks ago I was luckily enough to model for my favourite clothing company, Cherry Velvet.  I’ve been modelling for the designer, Diane Kennedy, for sometime now.  I even worked for her in Sales & Marketing before I had my baby.

It was so fun to get out of Mommy Mode and play dress up.  The dress I am wearing will be available in approximately 6 weeks.

Need a new little black dress? Check out the new Cherry Velvet dresses! 🙂 @cherry_velvety #pinup #cherryvelvet

Here is another shot of me, Stela Licina, and Sarah Jayne Stone.

I had a really good time working with these girls.  Stela also did my hair & make up and Ruth Ordare was there too!!
