White Christmas Winter Style

Did you have yourselves a Merry Little Moonlit Night?  We certainly did; a homemade Christmas dinner under the stars with close friends, our island family, last night.   We are thrilled to soon see this couple celebrate their one year mark!  He hosted at his Hemingway-esque cottage on the beach, a place we have so many incredible memories of and in over the last decade.  We ate island style; carrot soup, steamed green beans, smoked gouda pasta, and lobster so tasty it could dismiss the melted butter sauce. We could not have asked for a more perfect evening; great company, nonstop laughs, and an exchange of favorite Christmas childhood memories over a hearty homemade meal.

So despite my heart wandering to Wyoming these last few days, to my brothers who have made the trek (near and far) home for the holidays, to familiar places blanketed in winter, I have much to be happy for here in this tropical place we call home.  For now we will enjoy the sunshine and the sea, and soon enough we will play in a winter wonderland like pictured here.

Styling with Steve

To wrap up on Amazing Grace, here are a couple of Steve Passmore’s images from our photo shoot at Amazing Grace in June.

I have to admit, I LOVE this room; the stone walls, the exposed white washed ceiling beams, the arched transom windows and doors, the pale patterned furniture, . . . I could go on and on.  All this room needed in terms of styling was a few accessories to soften such a grand space.   Placing corals, woven baskets, wood lanterns, succulents, and beautiful books on the central cabinets shelves turned a dark void into an eyeful of interest.  

Fashion Story – Styling Inspiration

Today we wrapped a shoot for  Discover Magazine to accompany an article I have written surrounding the TCI Top Model contest and winners. 

Brilliant and I were very fortunate to have a flawless Turks and Caicos day full of sunshine, blue skies, and bright water.

Here are a few of my inspiration boards in preparation of the shoot; runway images from the Top Model contest, saintgeorgefashionhouseThe-House-of-Jeritt, and  inspiration images from the uber amazing trendhunter.

Both designers and our entire production team were beyond pleased with the shoot, we are all very excited to see the images grace the glossy pages of the new issue but won’t get too excited as it will not be released until January!

Great job to our beautiful models and our hair and make-up artist Shenique Higgs, whose morning magic lasted all day long, despite 8 wardrobe changes, wind, and sweat!
