Holiday Style and Shop Local

November 20, 2012

Last week I photographed a shoot featuring five Boston bloggers, Amanda Knorr of Spreedia, Lani of Mon Petit Chou Chou, Renata of Scorpion Disco, Kristen of Boston Fashionista, and Sean of Boston Mo. They were told to think “Holiday” and styled themselves with clothing and accessories from local boutiques. Here are some of the photos from the shoot, but all you Boston people, make sure to check out their links for where to shop the shoot. Just in time for “Shop local Saturday.”

Photoshoot Credits:

Hair: Tim Robishaw of Jeffrey Lyle Salon
Makeup: Lauren Genatossio of Sarra
Photography: Sarah Winchester
Location: Marc Hall Design Studio

Sean of Boston Mo – quirky prep

Kristen of Boston Fashionista - retro/glam
Amanda Knorr of Spredia - tailored chic
Lani of Mon Petit Chou Chou – romantic, feminine
Renata of Scorpion Disco - polished structure
Here is the whole crew ready to party.

While the editors of Rue Magazine certainly picked some fabulous photos, there are so many more from the shoot that I just adore.  (I am terrible at narrowing down my own work.  Thank goodness for editors.)  Here are more goodies from the Rue Shops Boston feature.

Rue Shops Boston

May 7, 2012

The new Rue issue is here, the new Rue issue is here!  A few weeks ago I got the call from Rue Magazine asking me to photograph a feature on where to shop in Boston.  On top of that already fabulously exciting request (my first real photo shoot post baby) I learned we would be following around the fabulous Erika of Radiant Republic.  I have worked with Erika in the past and her taste is impeccable.  Her list of shops did not disappoint.  Each are so uniquely Boston.  She even introduced me to a few new spots.  Go check out the new issue here.  We are on page 40.  Here are some screen grabs.

Joss & Main

March 15, 2012

I was so excited to see Joss & Main used some of my photography for a sale curated by Erin Gates of Erin Gates Design and Elements of Style.  The sale begins this evening at 7:30 pm EDT! The items in her sale are inspired by one of her previous posts about “furniture men hate”  for a “what women want” sale featuring lots of accessories, lucite and the like.  Below are some of my photos incorporated in the look book.  I love the girly glam feel.

  Go check out the sale this evening.

(Photo shoots galore…I am certainly trying to cram as many in as possible the last couple of weeks.)

Samantha House Jewelry is launching her latest collection Sam and I had the pleasure of photographing it.  She sells her gorgeous jewelry at the likes of Barney’s in New York and specialty boutiques like Flock in Boston.  The kicker with this new line of jewelry is all items are under $100!  With gold and silver options the collection is delicate and airy.  I just love it.  Plus we got to play with the natural light which beams into my studio each morning.  The collection is not yet available but here is a sneak peek from our photo shoot.  I’ll keep you posted on its official debut.

A Boston friend of mine, the talented Rachel Reider Interiors,  just went down to Atlanta for a girls weekend and asked for some shopping and restaurant recommendations.  Now Atlanta has all the big flagship stores and eating establishments you would expect of any large metropolis, but it is the bungalow neighborhoods and flora filled city that shape Atlanta’s personality…and there is no better time to visit than the spring.  It is truly when the south shines.  Here is a list of some of my favorite places unique to the beautiful city of Atlanta

P.S. I would recommend approaching Atlanta by neighborhood.  Each one has it’s own little feel and great shopping and food.  Otherwise you will spend half your day driving…oh and always use back roads if you can.  Most Atlantans, who live in the city, avoid the highways like the plague.

Dinning

Rosebud

Rosebud – (Virginia-Highlands/Morningside) This great little neighborhood restaurant has some of the best food in the city with many farm-to-table selections.  In fact there is a farmers market every Saturday in their parking lot where the purchase most of their food.  I use to live right down the street from Rosebud and would seriously eat there at least once a week.  The enchanted mountain springs trout is my favorite dish in the whole world!!!!

-

Yoforia

Yoforia (Virginia-Highlands/Morningside) – another neighborhood favorite and right across the street from Rosebud.  WAAAAYYYY better than Pinkberry and with only 5 grams of sugar and ounce you can eat your heart out.
-

Two Urban Licks

Two Urban Licks (Midtown/PonceyHighlands)  Very cool, big warehouse restaurant.  Great food with a little southern fire to it.  The restaurant also showcases a gorgeous, huge Todd Murphy painting.  Todd Murphy is on of my favorite painters and I swear one day I will have one hanging in my home.

Horseradish Grill

Horseradish Grill (Buckhead) – Even though it is technically in Buckhead it is tucked away in a beautiful neighborhood setting.   A favorite for years of my whole family (we held my mothers 60th birthday there) it is across from the beautiful Chastain horse stables.  A little country club chic and a little casual southern elegance, this place it perfect for any group.  They have a killer trout dish as well and a lovely outdoor patio.

-

Shopping – home decor

Gramercy Home

Gramercy Home (Buckhead) – Love love love this store.  I have done multiple photoshoots for them and they always have the best things, I could go on, but check my previous blog post and post, to see for yourself.

-

Peices

Peices (Buckhead) – I am sure most of you have heard of Peices and the uber chic owner Lee Kleinhelter.   The little shop is perfectly curated with all those coveted interior design goodies you see in every magazine.  Everything is totally lust worthy.

-

B.D. Jeffries

B.D. Jeffries (Buckhead) – do not judge this store by the website.  It is awesome.  Very old South/Garden & Gun chic.  You will want to buy everything.  Silver, leather, home, mens, childrens, the expansive shop is perfect vignette after perfect vignette.

-

Erika Reade

Erika Reade (Buckhead) – right next to B.D. Jeffries it is the waffle robe and beautiful linens to B.D. Jeffries’ silver and leather

Providence Antiques

Providence Antiques (Virginia-Highlands/Morningside) Right next to Rosebud, this shop is a little gem of home decor and random things you don’t see all over the Internet.  The woman that runs it is AWESOME and here little French Bulldog, Hector is the cutest thing ever.

Shopping – clothing, baby, etc.

Atlanta has all the big stores at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, but here are some unique to Atlanta little boutiques.

Vetted

Vetted (Buckhead) – awesome redone little bungalow with great edited stuff.  I did a blog post on the shop a few months ago here.  I still wish I had purchased this necklace.

B Braithwaite

B Braithwaite (Howell Mill area) – World’s best baby store :)  The owners are a mother/daughter team (I went to college and am good friends with the daughter Chaffee, so please tell them hi if you go in).  Their shop is gorgeous and the pristine white decor, makes you feel as though raising a baby will be the most wonderful, blissful event.  When the baby challenges do come, they have an awesome blog, and a rolodex full of experts to help.   Oh and their cool and modern Kiawah Island beach house was just in the April Veranda magazine.

I mean…the storefront alone is worth the visit.  How Parisian chic it this?!

Labels

Labels Resale Boutique (Buckhead) – again, do not judge a shop by its web site.  This is a great little consignment shop (hit or miss as with all consignment shops) but I have gotten some great stuff over the years.  They have a black Birkin for sale right now for $6500  which is still out of my league but sooooooo pretty.

So that is the quick and dirty on some of my favorite Atlanta spots.  What are yours?  Please do share so we can expand the list and put more wonderful places on the must do Atlanta list. :)

Cheers,

Sarah

Gramercy fun

March 24, 2011

I love love love working with Gramercy Fine Linens & Furnishings in Atlanta.  Their store always has the best displays and gift items, not to mention to die for bedding and bed designs that they change constantly.  The other week I had the pleasure photographing their store chalk full of spring linens and goodies.

Here are a few in which to temp you.  They have more up over on their blog too.  Go check it out.

The other week I had the pleasure of photographing the Tibi outlet store. Located on the barrier island of St. Simons, GA, the Tibi outlet is tucked away among the live oaks and Spanish moss of the south Georgia coastline.  Tibi owner and designer, Amy Smilovic, originally hails from the island, making it the perfect location for the Tibi outlet.   Tibi’s look has always been one of graphic prints, saturated color and classic design.  One glance around the island and it is easy to see where Amy got her inspiration for Tibi.

Fortunately for me, I have been going to the beach in this area for years and there is nothing better than throwing on a Tibi dress for a night out, after a day in the sun.  Especially when that Tibi dress can be had for a steal from the Tibi outlet.  Along with in season and post season Tibi collections, the outlet offers one of a kind sample pieces.  With its newly renovated and expanded digs, the Tibi shop on St. Simons Island is hardly an “outlet” style shopping experience.  It is modeled after their chic New York locations, but exudes all the charm and warmth of the island.

The island, the girls and the shop are so wonderful.  I had a blast photographing them.  I can’t wait to come back with my family at Easter and stock up on some great summer dresses.

Till then Tibi girls…

Vetted – Atlanta

October 28, 2010

During my work trip to Atlanta this week, I made a point to stop by the newly opened boutique, Vetted on E. Paces Ferry in Buckhead.  My favorite blogger and friend, Elements of Style, wrote about this new shop a few weeks ago, while they were still under construction and I have been dying to check it out.

I popped in after a very long day of work, simply planning on perusing the racks…what happened about 15 minutes later included a dressing room full of clothes and a glass of wine in my hand.  I love this place!  (Don’t worry my darling husband.  I only left with a pair of very reasonably priced ($145) but AMAZING wide leg pants. :) )

My dressing room

 

Also loved the two tone ebony and ivory looking hooks.

The crisp white space with black molding and cool accents created a fabulous show room in this darling 1930’s Atlanta style bungalow.  (Makes me miss my little Virginia-Highlands home just a bit.)

A rack of gorgeous neutrals.

To die for necklace featured right at the entry.

April, the extremely friendly and fun owner, explained she tries to carry new, hard to find designers like Thread Social, Myne, and Geren Ford, with no item costing more than $500.  She also carries only a few of each item, ensuring you won’t have the same dress as everyone else at the Christmas party.

So if you are in Atlanta, I definitely recommend swinging by Vetted, let April pour you a glass of wine and have fun!

P.S. They have vintage clothing selection coming soon.  I can’t wait.
