Lucky for me (and you!), I work with people who are not only amazingly talented, they're also totally fantastic and fun to be around. Don't let a sudden storm or high heel discomfort ruin a good fashion day! Always have your flats handy, you will still look fabulous. Especially with a big, white and furry beauty next to your leg.

Try Out Pretty And Cool Things!

It's easy: Just hang up your little blackdress, jeans and t-shirts in your closet and indulge in pretty and simple white dress, wide-brim hat, distressed jean jacket and shiny heels.

Let's face it- time goes by unbelievably quickly. It is almost Fall and seems like yesterday we had the beginning of Summer. This season's long ethnic tops and dresses served as mini cover-ups that you tossed on over your suit. But towards the end of the August, it's a dress. That means you can look cute and be ready to play with jean jackets, cardigans, boots....anything that will suit last days of Summer and chillier nights

Be ready to go wherever the day takes you.  With this simple and pretty but still very sexy and girly look you will get a notice-me type of response. Especially if you wear this beautiful Badgley Mischka hat, which is always so glam. Just indulge in a few creative items: Jamie wears sexy, gold, high-heel sandals. If you want less dressy just find some with no heel.

We ended up in one of the most amazing places in Bethlehem- Moravian Book Shop! America's oldest bookstore founded in 1745. In our photoshoot adventures we're always turning to Bethlehem or other towns in our area not just for inspiration, but for collaboration. The moment Jamie and our team entered the historical book shop in the heart of Bethlehem, it was clear we had scored another hit for AFP. 

What holds us transfixed, however, isn't just the beauty of this town, stunning as it is. It is the people and multi-attitudes, awashed in native flavor and rich history of this region.

In fashion it must be understood that creative cross-pollination with the right photographer, make up artist, model and brands spells success. As a Fashion stylist I wanted to reinterpret the traditional, bohemian motifs. I wanted for this look to have its own character. Little details like adorned jean jacket and jean Steve Madden bag with logo pins, choker and sparkly earrings promote imaginative pairings and invite creativity to your everyday ensambles.

There is a newfound appreciation for DIY pieces like Steve Madden bag because they are one-of-a-kind and can become a part of the movement, and definitely are statement pieces that we can closely relate to.

Coloring Faces- Interview with Danika.

Few things are more seductive than a soft shapely beautifully defined pair of ...lips.

A sophisticated mix of diva-rich shades complemented by soft, bohemian hues.

A sophisticated mix of diva-rich shades complemented by soft, bohemian hues.

Let's face it our amazing makeup artist star Danika Clevenstine deserves props for giving a lovely boost to our AFP photoshoots. She's been "coloring" faces of our models, and her style and aesthetics are always a DO! From deeply dramatic to softly romantic, every make up look produced by Danika is perfect.

AFP: Danika can you please tell us a little about Jamie's latest look?

Danika: We wanted to go for something high in glam but also keep things natural to make sure her makeup didn't take away from her beautiful looks for the shoot. This look was a peachy "smokey" eye paired with a coral lip. Even though Jamie has BEAUTIFUL lashes, we did give her false lashes to give her eyes some added definition.

Breathtaking photography by John Rounds.

AFP: Which element of make-up work do you most enjoy?

Danika: I love teaching girls how to do makeup and I also love seeing the added confidence that they have when they put it on. I love building connections with the models that I teach at a modeling agency and teaching them things that they won't only use on auditions but also for the everyday life. 

AFP: Who do you most enjoy working with?

Danika: I love our fashion blog team. Any time I get to work with John Rounds in a shoot is amazing- we work very well together and his work is some of the best I've seen. I also love working with Danuta, she has an infectious personality and is so welcoming- these are my favorite individuals to works with mainly because we work so well together and bring the best fashion photography to life in the Lehigh Valley. 

AFP: You've worked on a lot of A Fashion Page photo-shoots and you have worked with models at other places as well, how does that feel, and how do you prepare for those?

Danika: After working with Jamie a few times, I know how to fix her brow shape to make it perfect. When your working with a new face it's sort of a challenge and I love a good challenge! You will always work with different personalities too but it makes your job fun. Over the four years I've been a certified makeup artist, I've worked on many different faces and skin tones, you are more comfortable as time goes on. Making sure I go in prepared makes things easier so I am ready for any looks they throw at me. 

AFP: Do you like creating really out-there looks, or do you prefer something classically beautiful?

Danika: I truly believe that makeup should accentuate your features and not hide them. You are made to look like you do, so I prefer a natural look. I never do a crazy eye and a crazy lip, sort of a makeup artist rule, you play only one area of the face up and tone down the other. 

AFP: What do you think makes a great model?

Danika: CONFIDENCE! This is the number one thing I tell girls, be confident and the pictures will follow, it's really all you have to do. Confidence is infectious and will show through your pictures. 

AFP: Does everyone look better with make-up?

Danika: That's a hard one to answer: yes or not too. I've heard the saying but I feel confident with or without makeup and even as a makeup artist most of the time I am not wearing makeup. (Danuta probably hasn't seen me once with makeup on lol!)- I actually prefer no makeup for me. Although I do believe even a small amount of makeup can help to even out skin tone or make your eyes pop. But there are days where I feel prettier without it on. 

AFP: What is in your personal make-up bag?

Danika: In my personal makeup bag I have: an eye lash curler (which is key!), Tarte setting powder, makeup Forever foundation,  Buxom mascara, Tarte shape tape concealer, Anastasia brow wiz in soft brown and flower child blush by Becca- pretty much my 5 minute face items! I don't even use eyeshadows for work or eyeliner, just the basics! 

AFP: If you turn up at a shoot and the model has terrible skin, what do you do?

Danika: First thing is to evaluate the skin. I keep a bag of sugar in my handbag in case we can do a sugar scrub to get off some dead skin before makeup application. There was a time where I had TERRIBLE skin and is actually why I got into makeup.  So, I am really good at helping to cover blemishes, especially with the color correction skills I learned in my makeup program.

Fashion Now

Today being fashionable isn't about obtaining standing items that everyone else has. Women are demanding more personalized pieces- whether straight from the runway or custom made items, or unique gems found in millions of retail websites offering pieces that stores simply don’t. Pieces that set them apart from the crowd.

Jamie’s rusty orange and yellow combo is an easy to define bold color statement that will set anyone apart if wearing on the street.  ‘70s still growing trend is for women desiring understatement rather than logos.  

Now tags simply don’t matter as much. What we want are things that make us feel really singular. With one click of a mouse you are invited into the world of designers old and new, fast fashion and retail chains all catering to this new wish for more personal interpretations of indulgence.

When putting this ensemble together for Jamie, I gravitated toward the season’s latest off-the-runway looks. As I was looking through the photos taken by John Rounds I could not decide which ones are the best. All of them are incredible. As I was trying to narrow it down, looking at Jamie and how amazing she looked in those colors, I realized that the future of the fashion industry lies in offering different choices and styles targeted to specific types of customers. There will be a group of fashionistas that will set the trends and will need the most unique and extravagant items but let’s not forget about mothers, business women, tall or short women. For instance, not all designers make jeans for really tall women, in fact there are only a few brands out there that cater to really tall women.  Ironic, as most of the runways are walked by some of the tallest girls in the world.

Young women are outdoing their descents by purchasing never-seen-before pieces. The new fashion is unsolidified and energetic -fun, carefree traces like the tweed clutch or suede wedges are important parts of the equation.

Now the ultimate luxury is having the choice and freedom to dress exactly how you want regardless of brand or make. Luxury is being able to relax and enjoy things… just because.

The Next Big Thing? NYE-Inspired Evening-Wear!

Think bold beauty glitter and metallic dance party. This New Year's Eve is all about sliver & gold glittering glamour and it doesn't matter if you are planning on dancing to some '80s-sounding electro music in some fantastically dingy club or parting at the little house on the beach. In today's post we ended up getting quite carried away with the shimmering gold and metallic accents.

When it comes to wearing this look, there is only one rule! You must enjoy it! If you don't enjoy it, it doesn't look natural. Other guidelines, not rules, you might want to apply: keep your hair and jewelry fairly simple and wear high heels.

Of course, It 's easy to be glamorous if you're model Jamie Klein. She is what we all want to be: tall, thin and gorgeous, and she is smart to recognize her gifts. We are extremely lucky to be working with her.

The right amount of make up is glamorous. Our NYE make up by Danika Clevenstine is fun and brilliant.

So if you have tons of gold and sliver sandals, clothes and vintage accessories wear them now. Keep them too, they always stay in rotation.

The level of the photography work displayed in our posts by John Rounds throughout 2015 has been astonishing. We’re already looking forward to seeing what our amazing photographer can do in 2016!

Jean Jacket Style and Six Ways of Fading to White in Style!

Some great jean jacket styles are out there for you to try. Remember to skip boxy styles and create curves with a cinched-waist jacket this is especially great if you have a boyish build.

Pair your jacket with a sexy t-shirt or camisole and flirty scarf for a look that's flattering, feminine and very 2015.

All you need are comfortable flat Vans to finish the look.

Every woman should have at least one jacket that's a teeny bit tight across the chest. Zip or button it to just under the bustline, and let the rest of your jacket frame your chest for instant va-va-voom appeal!

Say no to oversize square-cut styles (that only works for blazers and coats come this Fall). Trade in your shapeless denim numbers for a shorter, sleeker version that doesn't overwhelm your frame, especially if you're petite.

Make this look evening-ready by adding strappy sandals and chandelier earrings. (and loosing the scarf)

SIX WAYS OF FADING TO WHITE IN STYLE

Prepare for a white out. This summer, style reaches new heights of sophisticated simplicity with clean, crisp white. Shed some light on your look with these six simple solutions for staying in style.

1. WHITE BAG

There is something so retro about a white leather bag. Racy and demure all at once, it works at any hour. It's polished and lady-like by day, but ideal for evening when the white really pops.

2. WHITE SUNGLASSES

Think big this summer. Oversized sunglasses are shading eyes everywhere. Choose white plastic frames that look great with a tan and complement your smile.
