Summer

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.

How to... Wear Your Cutoffs this Summer!

Every season is the newest, the most exciting, and filled with endless possibilities. Your next bold and trendy outfit featuring super sexy cutoffs could be: gorgeous, unconventional or wildly sporty.

Jessica's look is Glam but still very outdoorsy! We decided to put on a leggy display (and it's never a bad idea to show a little leg!) in edgy True Religion denim shorts and a red, stripy shirt as she stepped out for an AFP photoshoot, shot by John Rounds. 
We love anything that's feminine so we gave this look a feminine twist thanks to the denim blazer and subtle details.

Ladylike blazer?

What's making our hearts go pitter-patter? As fancy as it looks, this season's denim blazer by J.Crew is wear-everywhere (day or night), with-everything (jeans or satin).

How can we look good in a blazer? It's easy! Just remember these three simple rules: Think curvy, not corporate; girly, not giant; and fun, not frumpy.

Short Shorts

It's almost Summer, so naturally that certain adventurous freedom is in the air. When it comes to fashion, that means the perfect excuse to act on a style crush- a piece so utterly cool, pretty or just right that resisting it is simply out of the question.Distressed denim shorts give summer's new look a street-wise vibe that's not so innocent. Been a while since you had shorts this short? Try these slightly longer versions:

Tops

New infatuations: This Summer's tops are a little dressier than the standards you've seen before and stripes will send your style in the right direction.

Getting dressed up like this doesn't have to be such a major production - just jazz up what you wear during the day.

Jessica is very natural and very feminine. She makes this outfit look effortless.

To compliment and make this look even more classic Jessica wears nude pumps by Franco Sarto and crossbody bag by Ted Baker.
