Hidden Gem

Have you ever bought something and let it sit in your closet for a while because they're too bold or tricky to style? That was the case for me with these red va va voom pumps. So, I decided to challenge myself and finally style them. The best way to go with statement anything is to pair it with something simple and classic like a striped dress. I love this one from Lush Boulevard because the stripes are horizontal on top to give your body some shape while the vertical lines create the illusion of a longer body, which is always a good thing. They even include some diagonal lines on the side to magically reduce your waistline. Voila! Le Magic!  


Don, an old friend, producer, and master of conceptual photography has wowed me once again. He brought this crystal to our shoot and created this phenomenal "other world" effect. I think it goes perfectly with this blog post, talking about finding "hidden gems", like my red pumps, in your closet. Don't you think?
