Fall is my FAVORITE time of year, but it’s also bittersweet because it comes and goes so quickly. There’s honestly nothing better than that first autumn wind that whips across your cheek to let you know that it’s time to harvest your closet for jackets, scarves and boots. Today’s post is an homage to the early days of fall, where a beautiful dress and some sharp boots can make you feel like a super woman.
This is me, feeling like a super woman:
Location. Location. Location.
This shoot was so much fun. Honestly, any shoot I do with my amazing, visionary bestie Kamaria Roberts is going to be fun, but this was my first “golden hour” shoot specifically for the purpose of my blog. We were up and at em by 5:45 AM to make it to our location, The National Cathedral, by 7:15 AM. The Cathedral is undeniably gorgeous, but every time I visit I am more blown away by its intricacies. The flying buttresses, the stained-glass windows, the gorgeous gardens, the gargoyles! What a dream.
Fun fact: The National Cathedral features a total of 112 gargoyles, 215 stained glass windows and a sculpture of Darth Vader.
I found this beautiful dress at Eloquii in Pentagon City a couple weeks back when I was attending a panel discussion for National Curves Day. I spotted it on a distant rack labeled “samples”, or should I say it spotted me? Others around me can attest that I fell in love with it instantly. I mean seriously, when I look at this dress, the soundtrack to The Sound of Music plays in my head 😂. I WAS INSPIRED.
I paired the beautiful embroidered fit and flare dress with a couple of items I already had in my closet: a pair of cognac faux-suede thigh high boots and a matching wide buckle faux-suede belt. Eloquii head-to-toe, what else is new? 🤷🏻♀️
Since these items are a little older, they won’t be available on the web. But, you know I’ve got you, so I’m linking some alternatives below.
I hope you’re enjoying the Fall season as much as I am! The past couple of weeks have been crazy. I walked my first runway show and then I got sick with what might have been the flu! Now that I’m better, I hope to share updates as frequently as I had been. Until next time…
