Crystal Reflection

 
Recently I had the opportunity to wardrobe the cover of The improper Bostonian cover for February 2015. For the past couple of years the Improper has issued a Bachelor/Bachelorette issue for Valentines day. Bringing together twenty eligibles (10 male, tuberculosis
10 female) of Boston Massachusetts.  This cover shoot was a pleasure to work on. Having the chance to work with talented creatives is a great perk of the job.

Haute Hippie

by kristy

Some trends come and go, physiotherapist but Boho is here to stay (forever). Admiringly so, online Boho Chic was found on the Spring/Summer 2015 runways. Mixed bold patters, neurosurgeon mixed florals, fringe, feathers, and eyelet, to name a few nods to this timeless style. For the bold, here are some of my favorite pieces from this seasons shows to use as inspiration.

In order to rock this look, you don’t have to stretch too far out of your comfort box. By adding a few accessories to a maxi skirt/tank combo or a flowy dress you can update your staples by giving them new life.
