Last year, I  produced and styled this wedding editorial for Booth Photographics portfolio. They requested a unique styled shoot, inspired by a modern couple who loves both mid-century design and old world elegance. For the bride, I chose an elegant Delphine Manivet wedding pantsuit from Solstice Bride paired with handmade modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry, and a sleek ponytail by Studio mm&b. For our groom, a timeless white dinner jacket were paired with velvet loafers, all from The Black Tux. I also pulled designers sunglasses from Gogosha Optique for a few sleek and modern wedding portraits.

Dinner for this intimate elopement was setup on the beautiful balcony of this turn of the century mansion. Modern black and tan bentwood chairs from Yeah! Rentals were paired with a gray velvet linen from La Tavola and the place settings were decidedly modern with marble plates from The Ark and a plated fig salad. Twig and Twine created a loose, organic arrangement in moody fall colors with smoke bush, chocolate cosmos and garden roses. Simple gold taper holders from CB2 held traditional bee’s wax candles. An understated tiered cake from Lele Patisserie was decorated with fall foliage and individual hyacinth blooms. You can see more of this editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.

Campaign for
The Black TuxSet Design & Prop Styling for Wedding Products

kellyoshiro.com | campaign for the black tux

I recently had the opportunity to work as prop stylist and floral designer for wedding company and the uber cool tuxedo rental company, The Black Tux. My girl Annie Cavallo, handled the bridal styling and I handled the set design for all the faux wedding elements. Above, is the couple leaving “ceremony.” I designed a moody purple, black and white bouquet for the bride and a variety of boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. My favorite scene to prop was the cake cutting scene with a dummy cake from Lele Patisserie that I decorated with maidenhair fern and hellebore.

Entertaining: Nordic Inspired Brunch

I love me a good brunch situation and when Kim, the editor of Flutter Magazine, asked me to style a modern, Nordic, take on brunch I was wayyy on board. The amazing Ayda Robana made the most incredible spread with quick pickles (obsessed), buckwheat pancakes, frisee salad with poached eggs and pork belly (hello, yum) all paired with amazing artisanal hot chocolate by Jessica Foster Confections. Nancy Neil captured all the action perfectly and also hosted our little soiree at her amazing cabin. We shot this on my birthday and it was certainly the best way to spend it! To see more of the spread, pick up a PRINT copy of the magazine here or visit the Flutter blog here.

Editorial: Astrology Bride Part I

Now that Flutter Magazine is out with all 12 looks I thought it would be fun to share some additional photos from the shoot. This look is Libra and I was inspired by Gwyenth Paltrow’s style, really simple, modern and timeless. For the dress I used a body hugging Nicole Miller dress and paired it with a Waxing Poetic chain.

A simple jeweled band was used instead of a veil.

A sparkly bag (vintage, J.Crew) and a modern engagement ring from 33 Jewels.

For the hair and makeup, loose curls and daring red lips added a hint of retro glamour to the look.

For Gemini, I was inspired Marilyn Monroe and I choose a sexy mermaid gown by Lee Ann Belter.

Paired with BHLDN’s seaspray veil and vintage white earrings, the look had a little nod to the 60’s.

For Leo, I was inspired by Jackie O. The textured wedding gown and lace tip veil where a nod’s to Jackie’s wedding style. I used a Watter’s ballgown (the dress has pockets people!) and paired it with BHLDN’s scalloped lace fingertip veil and insane vintage pearls from the 1920’s from 33 Jewels.

Seriously, can you stand the clasp on this necklace! I’ll be sharing more of the looks throughout the week, so stay tuned for the remaining 9 looks.

Let’s Shop: Casual Valentine’s Date Night

As much as I like to get dressed up, I’m a casual girl at heart and I love the idea of a quiet dinner and movie date wearing a casual, but cute, Valentine’s Day ensemble. I’d wear these adorable kelly green heels with hearts on the toe and pair it with slouchy boyfriend jeans and an oversized heart sweater. I’d accessorize with a simple arrow necklace and a few bangles from Kate Spade. What are your Valentine’s Day fashion ensemble plans?
