Behind the Scenes of a Fashion Photo Shoot

24 Mar

 

 

Recently, Sweet Bling was invited to participate in a high fashion photo shoot for Studio Savvy in Rancho Santa Fe, California. My good friend, Jody Pinchin of Jody Lynn Photography invited me (Sweet Bling) to join her and Deena Von Yokes in what turned out to be a fabulous day of styling. Under the direction of Stylist and founder of Studio Savvy Salons, Deena Von Yokes, we worked to create several looks for the model.

Deena selected clothing and backdrops to style the model — carefully directing hair and makeup. I had the fun job of selecting jewelry for each look. We moved from one setting to another in the elegant Le Dimora furniture store. Each setting was a new backdrop for model Cierra Flower. We started off with a contemporary backdrop of black and white umbrellas, where Cierra posed elegantly in a geometric print dress and Sweet Bling Black and Crystal Spike Dangle Earrings. In each of the settings, Deena worked her magic, turning Cierra into a fun-loving socialite in an animal print dress to a sweet and playful young lady in bouncy curls wearing a white blazer and pouty pink lips. I accessorized the animal print with our Leopard Necklace and the playful pink look with our Fuchsia Jewel Necklace. In additional looks, Cierra looked like a regal lady in an era gone by wearing our Blue Deco Earrings and a woman of substance in a brown leather sofa wearing one of our long Nakamol necklaces.

This photo shoot was a team effort directed by Von Yokes. Everyone brought something to the table and made it a fun, successful day. Jody Pinchin of Jody Lynn Photography snapped photos and produced a behind the scenes video. Talented makeup artist Eileen Haligowski of Mirror Mirror On The Wall transformed Cierra’s looks via her makeup. Others that were part of the team Sheree Vihon of TRE Boutique, Maria Berry of Le Dimora Fine Furniture Store and Valentine Studios.

The Impact of Black

17 Mar

Black is the darkest of colors, often associated with power, influence, mystery, magic, secrets, or elegance. In fashion, many of these associations carry over. I’m sure every girl would love to appear mysterious, powerful, and elegant simultaneously. Forever a go-to, black  is what to wear when nothing else will do. There is no personal style or closet that excludes this color.

Among the many vibrant colors available at Sweet Bling, we also embrace black jewelry selections. Here are Sweet Bling’s new favorite choices for black:

The Black Flower Earrings on a gold tone backing. These also identify with the blooming floral trend.

Wear your black accessories:

With White/Black and White: Black and white is timeless pairing. Minimal effort for a look that will be undeniably chic. Although a classic, this match is especially gaining momentum in fashion for 2014.

With Light Colors/Pastels: Like with white, wearing your black accessories with light colors creates a bold contrast.

With Bright Colors/Patterns: 2014 fashion is heavy with bright colors, prints, and color blocking. Whether your pattern is soft or has hints of black, add on your dark accessories for emphasis.

With Black: Black on black—a combination designers will never cease to use. Sometimes black is your mood, a desire to look clean yet edgy. Or maybe you just want simplicity when stepping into your closet. Whatever your reason, all black is unquestionably flawless.
