Lady in Red (and Black and White)

{Dress: ManRepeller, Blazer: Zara, Jewelry: Arden B., Express, Shades: Thierry Lasry, Shoes: Sam Edelman}

Welcome back, to pictures of me wearing cute outfits! Today's installment has two exciting components.
First of all, I get to blogger-model my amazing red Man Repeller dress. Literally, this dress was designed by Leandra Medine, of Man Repeller fame. Sadly for all of you, the dress was only available for a limited time, but just so you know, the proceeds went to charity and the fabric is a divine silk. Jealous??

To be honest, I don't see what's repellent about it: it's red, it's got dainty straps, and it shows some leg. I'm pretty sure those are all surefire ways to propel men your way. I decided it needed a little help in the form a black and white tuxedo jacket and heels with spikes on 'em. Now that's how you keep the boys away.
The second component to this post is to unveil the special offer from the amazing photographer who snapped these shots of me looking super glam for CupcakesOMG! readers (read: you too can look amazing in your own pictures!).
As I mentioned earlier this week, Monique is a fantastic photographer who recently launched her professional photography business. As part of this launch and new partnership with CupcakesOMG!, she's put together a super cool offer for folks looking for anything from great Facebook or LinkedIn pictures, gifts for family (or other strangers who want pictures of you--that's your business to be weird), headshots, or just something for you to look at when you're feeling blue and say, "damn, I look good." 

Monique will be holding 30-minute mini-sessions at a set location in the DC and NoVA area for CupcakesOMG! readers!!! (dates TBD). You can select from four options:
  • $45 for 2 images
  • $75 for 4
  • $110 for 6
  • $150 for all
That's it! The price includes the sitting fee and the images. Availability is limited, so if you'd like to reserve a spot, reach out soon via Monique's website. Of course, if you'd like a longer session with multiple looks, you can always reach out to Monique for more inquiries.

I've gotten several questions over the last few days regarding my make up, and yes, I did do it myself. And yes, I agree--it does look great. So for an even extra exciting offer, I will be available for make-up applications for another $25. 

I mean, really, who DOESN'T want pictures of themselves walking and smiling and holding their designer coffee-drink in the big city???
I mean, really???

Wow your makeup was absolutely gorgeous, flawless, and fabulous! I have a new guest post on my blog and it's on cancer, hoping you could stop by? :).

i think you should wear that dress with me.

that way you repel the men to me...

but before hand, you will need to apply some make up to my face.

Your absolutely right, who wouldn't want a photo of themselves in the city with a Starbucks drink!! Such a great photo!!! xoxo

Julia said...

That blazer is beyond amazing! So classic and necessary!

Lydia Armstrong said...

I think Leandra intended you to wear this dress with a giant, feathered coat on top, a striped blouse underneath of a floral blouse underneath, and combat boots. JK. Not really.

Again with the prettiness. Your makeup is killer. Also, do YOU live in the NoVa/DC area, because if you do, I don't know if you've picked up on the fact that I live a mere hour and a half south of you.

You absolutely need to invest in a photographer and just do outfit posts all the time. Then let me use her. I love the dress. I don't feel repelled WHATsoever.

I'm currently obsessed with that exact shade of red- gorgeous for the cold!

The cupcakes look really yummy too- unfortunately I doubt they would make it to London intact ;)
