one of the things i love about shooting fashion for her life magazine is getting acquainted with all of the different boutiques in kansas city. this was the second time i’ve shot zuzu’s petals and i’ve fallen even more in love with them. owner’s melanie and linda are as sweet as can be. while i was there pulling wardrobe i couldn’t help but notice that when a customer walks in they greet them by name. they ask how their family is doing. they treat them like old friends. and if they don’t know you they go out of their way to get to know you. they’ve created such a warm, inviting atmosphere that you almost don’t want to leave.
for this shoot we pulled together eight looks that i really loved. in fact, i may have bought an item or three.
i bought the shorts and the wrap in the top left photo above.
and i bought this great aztec tunic. i wore it throughout the summer and now i’m pairing it with jeans, leggings and even a pair of black velvet skinny pants. so many ways to wear that top!
as always, we had a great crew for this shoot. our stunning model, barbara moreland of exposure, is one i absolutely can’t wait to shoot again. hair by erica johnson of double take salon and day spa and makeup by heidi bowles. ladies, i don’t know what i’d do without you!
you can find zuzu’s petals at 11780 West 135th Street, Overland Park, KS 66221. to see new arrivals and hear about sales be sure to follow them on facebook and instagram.
until next time,
