SHEER SERIES: DOROTHY DANDRIDGE DEPICTED
So many lovely things going on in these shots. If you haven't noticed, I've had an obsession with sheer which leaves me with so many options to wear. I find it so sexy yet demure wearing this AA tunic blouse as a dress with a pair of high waist bloomers and my favorite demi bra. I'm also adoring my new hat from Labels Consignment in Berkeley. It suits my style perfectly with a bit demure, a little age and a lot of sass. The most special thing about these photographs are Jay Adam's beautiful touches. This man captures beauty I could never imagine- he makes me feel so significant to his art. Do you bloggers work with photographers that just take your breath away? Check out more of his work here.
I've always looked up to Dorothy Dandridge for her demure yet sexy appeal. She was this gorgeous, radiant woman throughout her acting career and I've always wanted to capture her essence. I was sitting across from these steps the day before Jay and I shot and I had this flashback to her life (depicted in the life story casted to Halle Berry, 1999), where she's walking down steps, looking magical and sunkissed. I instantly texted Jay and said we HAD TO SHOOT HERE and just like that, Jay created exactly what I wanted to capture.

A huge, ginormous, never-ending thank you to all who are voting for me! Thus far, I've stayed in the 60-70's rank out of 337-not bad. You guys are my biggest motivator to be the best blogger I can be and regardless of this opportunity, I couldn't be more thankful for all of you following me on my journey. It's been two months now that I've dedicated myself completely to Profresh Style and I couldn't possibly look back. Yet, as much as I want this job for Sunglass Hat, I know whatever happens will happen and there are so many other great bloggers in the running! I know the right person will win! So, if you want me to be that person, vote for me here!
