TOOTSIES Top Blogger Photo Shoot

TOOTSIEStopbloggerphotoshoot2013-1

{Crickets chirping…}  HELLO!!!  Sorry I’ve been MIA!  My schedule had been MUCHO busy lately with activities after work EVERY night!  I finally have a chance to take a breath, and guess what, I’m blogging!  One of the more exciting events that happened is the TOOTSIES Top Blogger Photo Shoot!  It was a Sunday afternoon of fun picking out our outfit and meeting everyone!  AND THEN… a Tuesday afternoon of fabulosity doing the photo shoot.


We arrived at TOOTSIES in Dallas and were warmly welcomed by Nerissa (store director), Dustin (sales manager), Rachel (contemporary SA), and Courtney (one of the fab Where Wear in the City bloggers).  Jen from Blank White Frames, the 2012 Top Blogger Winner, shared her secret for winning it all!  :)  We then got an official tour of the store by Dustin.  From formal dresses to accessories, they have it all.  And then the UBER FUN part started… playing dress up!  We had to choose our look for the photo shoot and finale!

Ummm… can you tell I’m a bit obsessed with those Lulu Guinness bags? **Get in my closet**

My buddy, Elizabeth from The Now Stylebook, was across the dressing room from me!  We took turns posing for each other!  She is A HOOT!!!  Don’t you adore that MSGM on her?!  She thought it was too cotton candy – you know I’M ALL ABOUT the cotton candy!  And I’m wearing a top and shorts from Trina Turk.  LOVED!

On Tuesday evening, we headed over to the photographer’s studio – it’s AMAZING and it’s in her HOUSE!  We were “prettied up” with hair and makeup by The Hair Bar.  Then the magic began… Carmen Bright, photographer extraordinaire, shot our our looks and head shots.  She has a great eye and was very inspired by our looks.  Can’t wait for y’all to see what she did!

Hanging with Lynette of Style Maeve and Heather of Style by Fluent at the photo shoot.  Lynette had just finished her shoot – gorgeous right?!  Heather and I were waiting for hair and makeup.

I CANNOT WAIT to see the photos and share with y’all.  Voting for the TOOTSIES Top Blogger event will start on July 1st.  I’ll be sure to share the link!  And the Finale Event is on Thursday, July 25th.  Hope to see y’all there if you’re in the area!  :)

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!  Mr. S and I are enjoying a weekend getaway in Austin, my favorite city in Texas.  Cheers to the weekend!  xx
