As Dandy’s third anniversary has come and gone it has made me do a little reflecting over the past few years and all the adventures I have had along the way. I decided to go back to one of the first places I ever did a photo shoot, Colonial Lake. Nervous and having no idea what I was doing, I awkwardly posed for photos and felt completely lacking in confidence. Now a days it is still not my [Read more…]
I don’t think you have to look too far back to realize that Halloween is my favorite time of year! The cooler weather, the decorations, the costumes, and all the fun parties make it the most whimsical time of year! We decorate the store to the nines, make our “Autumn To-Do List,” and of course try and create the perfect Halloween costume. The past few years I have been using pieces from my favorite vintage thrift shops and also pieces from Dandy to create fun unique looks. This year a few friends got together and we pulled fun pieces from Dandy and played dress-up the best possible way…..Halloween style! [Read more…]
Over the past few weeks many of us have endured countless days of wind and rain, and though we evacuated and had to take a raincheck on all of our plans, we all had to get creative with ways to keep us entertained and for some it spiraled into the ultimate throwback.

Just like the beautiful changing colored leaves, we are “falling” for this season’s must haves (and yes pun is intended.) Lets start with the colors of the fall, and fitting for this time of year one of the more popular shades you need to have hanging in your closet is a deep red or maroon. Though it can be considered a color that is a step on the wild side for some, it pairs so nicely with neutral tans, blush, browns, and black; as well as a perfect transition pulling the color straight out of the summer sunset and on to the leaves of the trees.

Summer seems to be on it’s way out, not necessarily in temperature, but with the kids going back to school and Dandy switching over to fall there definitely is a change in the air (metaphorically speaking). Change is a good thing, it keeps us on our toes, challenges us to do things differently, and ultimately allows us to grow. Before we completely say goodbye to summer though, I was able to squeeze in one more sun kissed collaboration with a great group of women, who have all embraced a significant change recently.
