Boston: Saks Fifth Avenue: Tabitha Simmons

It's always an honor to photograph a designer  and Tabitha Simmons, Vogue contributing editor, shoe designer and British Fashion Award winner, was especially lovely at Saks Fifth Avenue, Boston. Very gracious, warm and approachable. I loved that while she was meeting fans, mingling and signing her fabulous Bonais or Haydens she was also taking iPhone photos to Instagram later!

The atmosphere had a bit of British influence with beats spun by ESC Music Design/Mario Papathanasiou and a sumptious afternoon tea catered by Capers Catering.

But let's not forget about the fabulous shoes....

Rockport, MA: Silvana Costa, Wicked Peacock

Location:

17 Dock Square
Rockport, MA 01966

I had the loveliest time meeting with Silvana Costa, owner of Wicked Peacock, the charming boutique accessories shop in Rockport, Massachusetts.

Situated at the corner of Bearskin Neck, Wicked Peacock features carefully curated and eclectic selections of accessories from independent and up-coming designers and everything fits perfectly in the beautifully decorated space.

Come and take a look...

 

Completely in love with these darling camera earrings ($9), thanks Silvana!

Wicked Peacock is coming up on it's first year anniversary in April, which makes it a perfect stop this season for some Spring shopping!

Boston: Marilyn Riseman

"I don’t put up with people I don’t like. I don’t want their energy. It’s the good energy you want to have around you. I want to have fun, and don’t have any time to worry about the rest of it." - Marilyn Riseman

My husband and I had the good fortune to meet and talk with Marilyn Riseman on several occasions over the last two years of living in Boston.

The first time was when I photographed her at Zac Posen's fashion appearance at Neiman Marcus. Her effervescent prescence and signature look lit up my lens as she did the entire room!

The next time we saw her was at The Clarendon's penthouse suite for the launch party of the new Ann Taylor store at the Prudential. She was such a gracious lady who always remembered both of us (and our jobs!) and always had a welcoming smile and fun disposition and she never minded being photographed!

At the Empire Hotel Rooftop in New York City for New York Fashion Week.

Another highlight for me was at the Luke Aaron show at Boston Fashion Week, where I had the chance to talk with Marilyn, Jane Conway Caspe and Elisha Daniels.

Warm, witty, classy and charming, Marilyn Riseman, you will be missed.

Boston: Neiman Marcus, Beauty with Katie Boyd

 

With award season upon us, Neiman Marcus is getting you RED CARPET READY along with Katie Boyd (who was celebrating her birthday) of Miss Fit Club and special guests Miss Massachusetts, Miss Maine, Miss Maine Teen, Miss New Hampshire and Miss New Hampshire Teen.

All of the latest trends for Spring in makeup were showcased with fashions styled by Neimans' own Style Advisor Dave Chen and modeled by Maggie Models's Genevieve, Abba, Amber and Melissa.

With music courtesty of DJ Liz Ladoux and cotton-candied cocktails served by snazzily dressed male models the only thing left to round the evening off, was a life-size golden statue, bringing the red carpet excitement to life!
