Great Expectations

In this post, A Fashion Page and JRounds Photography, features their first video "Feel This Way", hottest new model Chloe Smith, fashion, beauty and Bethlehem. 

We are also launching our new channel on YouTube that will focus on fashion, beauty and local business. At least that's what our curatorial team at AFP hopes for. Our mission will be to discover who's shaping the future of local fashion scene and business from the hotels we visit to the cars we drive to the furniture we buy.  Together, with our host Chloe Smith, we will scout locations and look for local precious gems. 

The thrill is finding emerging talent and getting people excited about them. The show is going to be very cool. Stay tuned!

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.

Style News! Season's Trends You'll Love!

What's new for you this month?

Recoiling into the safety of well-worn concepts. There is something very comforting about clothes that have an inaudible dominance and assurance. Season's earthy, chunky cardigans paired with blush/nude or pink top and suede bottom in the similar hue.

One of the season's most popular fabrics-salt-dyed cotton- is turning up in seductive or more demure work/ play designs too. Nothing beats a simple T that can be worn with pretty much anything. Moon River T is perfect: round neckline. short sleeves, relaxed silhouette and high-low hem.

Jessica

The statement skirt by Lulus. You don't have to go full Barbie to wear this trend. Just balance your girly stuff with relaxed, unstructured pieces. Try to have more fun with your clothes and not always wear the uniform.

Always dress to feel like a woman. It doesn't mean you have to wear heels all the time. J.Crew flat sandals can be just as feminine!

Jessica sizzles with old style glamour hair styled by Danika Clevenstine. But the whole look is versatile. The idea here is to be free-almost sloppy-not perfect.

Jessica is wearing: Cardigan: H&M. Top: Moon River (sold out), Skirt: Lulus (available here), Flat sandals J.Crew, Choker: Aqua, Earrings: Neiman Marcus.
