Fancy Eats {Anytime}

FILED IN: Uncategorized

A little while ago I had the opportunity to do something fun and different from the types of shoots I normally do. The ladies over at Fancy Eats Blog asked me to do a photo shoot for them that they could use for their up and coming blog, which combines fashion and food….yes please! These two have been friends for 15 years, and had always talked about starting their own site where they could combine their three loves: fashion, food, and friends. They venture out a few times a week to explore their own personal style as well as great restaurant finds across Los Angeles. I especially like seeing the different outfit combinations they come up with, giving me inspiration how I can combine affordable items and more expensive staples. Check these ladies out, fancyeats.com, on top of being informative (where to shop and where to eat) this blog is actually quite funny and witty! It gives me a good laugh. As the site grows and develops, they would eventually like to see Fancyeats expand into an e-commerce site. Thank you Sarah and Amanda for such a fashion-filled day, I loved it! Eat Well, Dress Fancy.


In the photos below, Amanda and Sarah rocked out formal dresses creating a strong contrast to an outdoor picnic.

On Amanda: Vintage Dress, Madewell Necklace, Forever 21 Bangles, Juicy Couture Headband, Urban Outfitters Sandals

On Sarah: Nicole Miller Dress, Forever 21 Bracelets, Vintage Sandals and Necklaces

H-O-T Mamas!!!

What a delicious picnic: a french baguette, fruit, brie cheese and wine.
You ladies are gorgeous and such natural beauties.


For Look #2 the ladies created a Summer beach theme with a vintage retro twist.

On Sarah: Forever 21 Denim Shirt and Bracelet, Crush Sunglasses, H&M Shorts, American Eagle Hat, Kenneth Cole Shoes

On Amanda: Vena Cava Bustier, Urban Outfitters Jacket, Sikes Silk Shorts, Vintage Belt, Freelook Watch, Forever 21 Earrings and Bangles, Ray Ban Sunglasses, J.Crew Wedges

Seriously models!!!
Fresh cut watermelon, cold beers and rainbow sherbert and mint chip ice cream….all refreshing on a hot day!

We had so much fun doing this shoot!

For the final look the girls were rocker chic at an edgy yet proper dinner party.

On Amanda: Sachin & Babi Dress, Manolo Blahnik Boots, Vintage Earrings, Forever 21 Bracelet, Gara Danielle Ring
