A few weeks ago, my good friends (and, incidentally, both amazing photographers) Sherri and April stopped by the shop before heading to a Krewe party. they had amaaaazing hair by Philip Nathaniel Saunders. I was immediately inspired. April was scared initially of the violet lip, but she came around in the end. I strove for a "pin up inspired" feel without being a slave to the look; I hate pin up looks that look like Betty Boop. the goal is to take elements from the genre but still look very pretty, not halloween costume-y. I think these looks would work well for boudoir or even an evening wedding.
