The Magic Wardrobe

11 May

Turning left off of Snickersville Lane, I had to pinch myself. I was making my way up to a gorgeous farm in Aldie, Va on what could be only described as a picture perfect day. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the smiling and stunning Bridget, owner of the Magic Wardrobe, and her three gorgeous children. I also met the ever-lovely Patti who I owe a big thank you! Not only for setting up the entire session but also for her patience, otherwise, there is a chance I might still be driving down the windy roads of the Virginia countryside.

I was thrilled when I was contacted by The Magic Wardrobe to photograph their Spring/Summer collection. It doesn’t get any more exquisite than the garments found behind the doors of this very special children’s boutique.  Founded in 1989 in Middleburg, VA., The Magic Wardrobe offers an inspiring array of beautiful garments from the likes of Marc Jacobs and Jean Bourget. But what’s most special about The Magic Wardrobe is the collection designed by Bridget herself.  Both innovative and joyful, the MW Collection is truly an example of what children’s clothing should be. Believe me, I gasped at one beautiful piece which I know that, if made in my size, I would be thrilled to have hanging in my own closet.

There truly is a celebration of children and life inside The Magic Wardrobe and I encourage all of you to stop by and say hello when you are passing through Middleburg or strolling through Georgetown. I am sure you will be greeted with smiles as beautiful as the clothes themselves.

The new and improved web site is almost set for launch, but in the meantime, you can find out more about The Magic Wardrobe by visiting, http://themagicwardrobe.com/

Thank you so much Patty & Bridget! I had such an amazing time with everyone!

Sosie’s Closet

9 Sep

What do two siblings and circle scarves have in common? Well, not a whole lot besides the fact that they are absolutely beautiful!!

I have been anticipating this post for a long time and am so happy to let everyone know that Sosie’s Closet is now open for business! I could write all day about Esosa but I think her bio says it best:

“Esosa Edosomwan A.K.A. Sosie, is an actress, writer,”directress”, with a knack for staying uniquely well dressed on her own terms. In the past she worked as a freelance designer and fashion assistant for major companies such as J.Crew and Converse, and studied fashion design at Cornell University and abroad at Central St. Martins School of Design in London. Sosie’s Closet is her first endeavor to share her own unique style sensibility with the world.”

I was so happy to be able to help Esosa out with this project  because I love her scarves and I LIVED in my own Sosie creation this past spring (blue/teal circle scarf that I am positive  I wore everyday in chillier times). We met up on a Sunday morning in Georgetown with a bag full of Sosie scarves and my camera. Esosa’s sister was on hand and was not only a beautiful Sosie’s Closet model but she also didn’t mind helping me with my multi-disk reflector! The three of us had a really fun time walking around, posing, and vouging like it was nobody’s business 🙂

Thank you Esosa! What a wonderful opportunity it was for me to photograph two stunning, artistic, and  smart women.

Now my lovelies…. go forth and BUY!
