ombre hair piece | stephanie sterjovski

This week I teamed up with the adorable Stephanie Sterjovski, a Toronto based photographer, lifestyle blogger & graphic designer to create this fun little ombre hair piece. 

Stephanie's great sense of style and photogenic features made her an easy muse for this floral creation. Taking a little break from the ever-popular floral crown, this hair piece was a sweet alternative in keeping with the flowers-in-your-hair trend.  And a fun way to dress up your locks for an outdoor music festival or even a summer afternoon out with the girls. 

The hair piece is relatively easy to make and takes only a few blooms...

For the full DYI tutorial you can check out Stephanie's post here on her blog!


julia & james | sophia banks photography

Last year Julia & James got married and had a Great Gatsby-inspired reception.

Fortuitously, their photographer, Sophia Banks was able to sneak them in to the abandoned 1920's Crystal ballroom at King Edward Hotel to snap some beautiful shots. How appropriate!

I love these wedding party photos in this lost landmark. 


day after styled shoot | vicky starz photography

I LOVE this shoot. I loved dreaming it up with Vicks. I loved styling it. It's possibly my fave. We wanted to do something fun, something cool. And we had the best team. 

And then it was featured here on Ruffled! We were thrilled!
