Marfa Magic

Every now and again I get the opportunity to collaborate with my talented friends on passion projects – much like the one pictured here. Last year my gal pals traveled to deep West Texas to magical Marfa, where they captured this stunning shoot. I love how it came out so very much, and feel lucky to have been a part of it! Credit goes to N. Barrett Photography for these images, Cakewalk Bake Shop for design, styling, and that mega gorgeous cake, and Bows and Arrows for the design, styling and florals. You can see even more from this shoot on Style Me Pretty.

Tomorrow I’m heading up North to Minneapolis. I can’t wait. Several years ago (2005, I believe) I took a trip to Minneapolis with my parents and we loved it. The culture, food, and beauty made an impact on me and I’ve been seeking a way to get back there ever since.

I’ll be teaching two beginner classes at the Mae Mae & Co. studio (March 4 and 5 at 6 pm). I’ve been a long time fan of Megan’s, and to partner with her for these classes has been great fun. I mean, just look at how she styled some of my work above – major.

Wednesday’s class has 2 spots left, with a few more on Thursday. It has been a quickly planned trip, so I’m offering a discount for my classes, which I never do! Use code MPLS to receive 10% off of your registration (for Minneapolis classes only). Register here, and I’ll see you soon!


After what seems like a year of planning, I’ve finally reopened my shop and am excited to bring you a new look and new products. I’ve got more in the works, and even more dancing around in my brain, so stay tuned for much much more. Until then, take a look, even shop around if you like. If you feel so inclined to make a purchase, use code FREESHIPYAY to receive free shipping until this Saturday, February 21.
