Hello! I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Urban Outfitters Virginia on styling a few looks for a winter fashion shoot with one of my favorite Richmond photographers, Rachel Dwyer. You can read more details about our collaboration here. We wanted to shoot at least one holiday look for the collaboration and the festive red hue and shimmering finish of this Urban Outfitters holiday dress spoke to me right away. I slipped it on in the dressing room and instantly fell in love; it would be perfect for a holiday party or even a New Year's Eve celebration. 

I accentuated the glamour of the dress with a faux fur leopard print coat, chic cat-eye sunglasses and an eye-catching shade of red lipstick. I also slipped into a trendy pair of fishnet stockings and classic black heeled booties. I kept jewelry simple and incorporated the cutest kitty cat coin purse from Urban Outfitters into a couple photos.

Hello! Urban Outfitters Virginia recently reached out to myself and my favorite photographer, Rachel Dwyer, regarding a collaboration and I immediately jumped on board. Vanna Dalton, the store brand leader of Urban Outfitter's Richmond location, suggested working together on a holiday-inspired winter photoshoot. A couple of weeks ago, Rachel and I popped on over to Urban Outfitters to meet Vanna and get the ball rolling on the collaboration. As I looked around the store, a plethora of dresses and sweaters caught my attention. I picked out several of my favorite pieces from their winter collection to style for the shoot. I wanted to blend Urban Outfitter's products with my style aesthetic in a unique, interesting way. We shot three different looks and it's tempting to call the look above my favorite look of the day. 

This beautiful green dress instantly caught my eye when I spotted it hanging in Urban Outfitters. I mean, do you see its rich color, luxurious texture and unique oriental-inspired print? Hello, gorgeous! I can definitely see myself rocking it as an everyday dress but I think it's intended to be a little bit more of a special occasion holiday dress. I played up the hints of yellow and gold in the print of the dress with a pair of golden boots, chic golden accessories and yellow shades. A burnt orange purse adorned with one of my favorite seventies scarves and a super cozy burnt orange cardigan also contributed to the color aesthetic of the look. 

Stayed tuned to see the other two looks from the collab!
