Glitter Guide + Sarah Jehan

A few months ago I realized I needed some fun professional photos to use on my websites. I wanted something that expressed what I do everyday. While brainstorming ideas I came across this old Kate Spade advertisement. I knew immediately that I wanted to use it as inspiration. I love soaking in as much as I can about the world especially when it comes to trends, fashion, design, fitness and food. Glitter Guide is a way for my team and I to share our findings and hopefully delight and inspire you.

A big thank you to San Francisco Bay Area photographer Sarah Jehan who took all these amazing photos! Check out more of Sarah's work at her website.

Mens Suits said...

Hmmm those jackets glittered my eyes off. But not only represents the dress the books already advertise it and each of it has a category, and the last you are holding on that was a great idea. Reading about fashions style.
