ATTENTION BOSTON-AREA FRIENDS! i think it’s safe to say that winter is officially behind us here in new england and we’re on to spring and summer! and if you’re anything like me, both seasons have me thinking about entertaining! about maxi dresses! about home decor updates!

i’m very excited to be co-hosting an event at anthropologie legacy place in dedham this thursday, april 25th. i’ll be sharing some of my top home + fashion picks for summer alongside the anthro home and apparel stylists, plus i’ll show different ways to craft an effortless tablescape with help from wild folk studio. AND there will be boozy sips and snacks. the event is from 6-8p and tickets can be purchased here for $10.

YOUR DREAM BRIDAL / LOOKBOOK STYLING

mStarr-your-dream-bridal-6.jpg

of the various professional hats i wear, perhaps my favorite is stylist. being able to dream up a concept and see it through just makes me happy. a few months ago, i was asked to lead the creative charge for a fun project...the your dream bridal lookbook. the boutique, owned by kick ass new mama malinda macari {who came to the shoot with her months old son}, is in sudbury and offers a unique selection of bridal dresses. malinda carries dresses that are 100% focused on the bride, designs that are stylish yet allow you to be yourself. designers include truvelle {an exclusive to the boutique}, azul by liancarlo, lea-ann belter, laudae and more. but the best part? your appointment is in a one-on-one setting {yes, as in the boutique is completely yours!} so you get malinda's complete attention. make sure to keep reading because she's hosting a trunk show this weekend!

the shoot was a collaboration in the best sense of the word...every area including photography, styling, florals, hair, makeup, video and more was covered {thanks to natalie from in good company} so we all felt taken care of and were able to truly focus on our respective talents. we bounced ideas off of each other and the end result was really special. i left the shoot feeling creatively energized and when beth sent over the final images, my jaw literally dropped. just take a look for yourself...

ok so are your or someone you know getting married? because malinda is hosting a trunk show from may 25-27 for her exclusive designer - truvelle, and she has a few appointment times remaining. brides will be able to CUSTOMIZE a bespoke dress made literally just for you. this is an opportunity that doesn't come along often and i can attest to the truvelle dresses being equally as beautiful in person as they look in photos! make your 90 minute private appointment today here.

and finally, i wanted to give a shout out to the stellar team of creatives who helped bring this shoot to life.
