I was very excited to collaborate with Nikki A. Johnson for these pictures. Despite it being early February, the day was beautiful and the lighting was perfect with just the slightest hint of a breeze. I love the elegant composition of her work and the Art Nouveau outcome of the shoot!
I'm indebted to two of my recent blog sponsors for the fantastic accessories showcased in this post.
We Love Colors graciously sent me these psychedelic Splash Color gloves and tights. Don't they remind you of the wings of a magical butterfly or a flaming summer sunset? Definitely a statement piece, they stood out perfectly against this elegant black circle cape and post-winter landscape. We Love Colors is the perfect online go-to store for statement-making items like these, or for more subtle everyday hosiery. (Be sure to consult their Color Guide for a complete list of solid tights options.) Don't forget to follow them on their Facebook page, Curvy Facebook page, Twitter, and Style Blog!
My beautiful Stevie necklace (which also makes a lovely hair ornament!) was given to me by my friend Julie Cullings, an independent stylist for Stella & Dot. Stella & Dot provides a flexible entrepreneurial opportunity for ladies in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. to sell this elegant line of jewelry from the comfort of their own home. Geared towards the 21st-century woman, Stella & Dot juxtaposes modern simplicity and grace with whimsical vintage elements at an affordable price (half the line is under $50).
Check out the official Stella & Dot Facebook page and Julie's independent stylist Facebook page. Leave a comment on her independent stylist Facebook page telling her that PINK CHAMPAGNE sent you, and you will be entered to win a FREE pair of Soiree stud earrings (gold or hematite)!
Have an amazing Valentine's Day! I sure will. <3
