New Year, Big Bang

The New Year is right around the corner and I wanted to go out with a Bang..literally.  I have been wanting a change for a while and since I am too scared to cut my hair short I was convinced by Kat Tran, an up and coming hairstylist, to cut my bangs. Kat did a fabulous job and I have been in love with my new hairstyle ever since! So goodbye 2010 and I am excited to bring on new changes, new adventures, and new endeavors in 2011!

Eyes: MAC pigment in Rose

Holiday Looks: Dramatic Lashes

For this photo shoot I wanted to emphasize Brigitte's eyes and used a very dramatic eye lash and kept everything else simple.The fierce lashes creates a bold contrast that is stunning against her blue eyes. 

Vinh styled the outfits from local boutiques Dog and Pony, Buydefinition and Blackbird. If you have not already checked out these amazing boutiques you must stop by and check them out.

Holiday Looks: Smokey, Glittery, Glamorous

Some of you might be thinking why is she wearing a pretty summer shirt in the middle of winter and why is this called Holiday Looks when it doesn't look wintery at all, well in Texas, winter comes and goes and this past weekend felt more like spring reaching temperatures in the 70s. As much as I want to bring out my winter coats and boots it just will have to wait until mother nature decides to bring Texas a "cold front." The weather, however, made for a perfect Saturday afternoon at the park. The pictures were taken at Houston's water wall near the galleria. 
Face: Mac Pro Long Wear foundation and concealer

Holiday Looks: Purple Lip Passion

I asked my lovely friend Andrea who is a writer and fashionista to do a vintage shoot with me and Jenny at Coffee-A-Deli coffee shop. I wanted to take the classic holiday red lip and vamp it up with today's fall trend, purple lips. Andrea has an amazing vintage wardrobe and I knew she would be perfect for the part! The lip color I used was Bed Head's Passion it is a deep purple-maroon shade that is great for those who don't want to go too purple this holiday season!

Thanks to Coffee-A-Deli for letting us shoot on location.
