BTS with Tina Summers Label – DTLA

Shooting in Tina Summers label is always so much fun for me. She’s the sweetest, most humble and amazing person. Her quality and detail is superior to so many! Simply stated, I love wearing this lady’s clothing. Her designs are incredible, versatile, comfortable AND Haute! I feel very fortunate to know and work with her from time to time.

This was part of a shoot with many Models, Make-up Artists, Hair stylists and various photographers. It was a shoot taking place in DTLA in various locations. The various locations is a whole other long but funny story.  No matter what, I think it was a good day and everyone came together and pulled it all off and smiled until the end. And that’s what’s important, feeling good about a situation. You just have to keep on smiling.

I was absolutely in love with my hair stylist. Connie Vargas! She’s also an amazing amazing nail artist. I highly recommend checking out her instagram for some beautiful nail inspiration.

I did my own Make-up and used the following Products:
Moisturizer: Empryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè | Here
Foundation: Missha BB in #13 | Here
Highlighter: Hourglass Ambient Lighting | Here
Eyeshadow: Nyx, Chanel , YSL
Lips: Too Faced Lip Injection in Never Enough Nude | Here

Do you see this hair? Is that amazingly cool or what? Connie is a fantastic artist and so sweet!

The color of this dress is everything. I truly feel like a Barbie Doll and there is nothing else I’d rather be. The fit is so beautiful and the fabric is insanely comfortable. Ladies and Gentleme, Malibu Mermaid!

This gown! This is red carpet ready. The hand beading and the details in person are just jaw dropping and gorgeous. Obviously my little photo cannot do this dress any of the justice it so rightfully deserves.

A little post Starbucks pick-me up. The hair had to come with, I wanted to wear it for days. LoL~!
My jumpsuit is made by MinkPink and altered by my tailor for a slightly better fit.

It is still nice and loose but every girl needs a good tailor for a little bit of a better fit. Even if it’s a comfy outfit, you gotta look pretty. Soon, I will upload the Professional photos.

What an amazing team to work with. I had such a great time with everyone and viewing the outcome of the photos is always such an exciting moment. A positive mindset is very important to the outcome of a project; everyone feeds off one another’s energy and you can definitely tell in the final results if something was off or amiss. And I have to say, these photos are exceptional.

The team was amazing! Everyone put in such hard work, keeping in  great spirits the entire time.  The weather was perfect, slightly overcast with a warm temperature that wasn’t overbearing.  And everyone felt valued, that’s one of the most important things in life, I think. Everyone wants to feel valued. In my opinion, to be a good person you have to make everyone feel that they are worth the energy and time.  When I feel like I am needed, it makes my heart truly happy and able to radiate light and love.

So, thank you team! You are all amazing. Amazing to work with, amazingly talented and with such blessed and talented spirits. Your light truly was shown and I’m so happy to have been able to do this editorial with you all, it’s something I am very proud of and happy to be given the chance and opportunity.
