Long coats and spring casuals!
That says it all.
A great moment shared as these two sisters spent time walking between locations to meet Mom on Mother’s day.
Comfort street walking shoes and casuals are offset by
sharp classic hand bags and accessories.
Clean lines make them appear tall(er) and always simple fashion like this draws attention to your face.
Clean make up and naturally beautiful skin, minimal lipstick and tidy brows are great practice for appearing younger on women of all ages.

Behind the scenes
of Behind the scenes…. love this shot of Ivan Meade taking his versions too!
The very talented team as we have said before worked tirelessly to produce a brand building photograph of Ivan Meade’s first collection of designer interior fabrics. A creative undertaking that we especially proud and honoured to be a part of.
Thanks to a beautiful fog that rolled in we had a natural white wall illuminated by the sun, a complete gift and total surprise that helped make this such a memorable photograph.
Please leave comments below that you would like to make and we will be sure to share them with the team!
