Ellery used a bold spiked belt and spikes on the booties to throw a little edgy to his lookbook. My favorite look is the first one worn with a spiked gold belt. It looks so random but with edgy make up and hair it tied it in well.

Last Wednesday we were invited to provide jewelry for a photo shoot for a new pop artist Flo Keyanna. Flo wanted to do some promotional work for her single “No Holding Back,” which will be released June 3rd so stay tuned. My friend and professional Make-Up Artisit (MUA) Lakisha Evans of Glorified Faces put together a team for the project. The shoot was done at Pixtions Photography studio with photographer Tyrone Love. Juan Ortiz, of Redd Pen Media, was the videographer catching all the behind the scenes filming of the shoot. Hair was hooked up by Alexis; also a member of Glorified Faces. Clothing, and feathered glove in the last look, provided by stylist Lael, who also has her own clothing line called Lael By Lael Marshall, whose collection was featured on the Lisa Raye Show last week.
Everyone I worked with was so cool. It’s amazing how people from different creative fields can come together and work to provide one vision. We’ve been lucky to have worked with various fashion designers/stylist/photographers/whatever in the past and never had drama on the set. It makes it easier to flow when everyone is about the finished product and not on their own agenda…
WHAT I WORE
In the first picture I wore a Fish Ear Cuff I made and thrifted disc earrings (one of my favorite). Then I layered a chunky thrifted bracelet and bangle with a gold nugget ring (one of Vanessa’s favorite).
Went to Jewelbilee, a store with fashionable accessories at an affordable price, to see what they had to offer to a jewelry lover such as myself. The armor ring above was a must buy, and for only $16, I knew I could do some damage with it. The pen was so cool and only cost me $8!! Every time I pull it out I know it will be a conversation starter.
I was walking through JC Penny at the mall to get my eyebrows threaded and from the corner of my eye I saw these sandals. I’ve been looking for inexpensive embellished sandals for the summer for a while and unexpectedly found them here. I only paid $12 each which I call a bargain. I also found some really pretty maxi dresses which I plan on wearing to Miami next week. I will make another blog post on my outfits then. Stay tuned!
So for Mother’s Day weekend I took some me time to explore Philly. There are so many little shops where you find some of the most unique finds. I went to South St where I bought the first two earrings. My favorite is the second one because of all the colors and the edgy design, and for only $13.00, it was well worth it. I will probably wear this one out all summer. And I got the necklace worn in the last picture at H&M. I usually see all the cool jewelry pieces in their magazines but FINALLY I found an H&M with the same pieces. I purchased this for only &12.95.
Behind the scenes video:
These are some images I found of Beyonce’s African inspired photo shoot for L”Officiel Magazine, in their March 2011 issue. Not all the images are posted because for some reason no one has the full shoot. So, I decided to share what I had.
The big bold jewelry are my favorite aspects of the shoot. Recognize the Gucci dress from the cover here? It was beautiful on that model and now on Bey.
