WELCOME TO THE SPRING EDITION OF TMS! A NEW YOU AND A NEW SEASON. After two years of masking, It’ s time to explore the world again, in full color. We suggest, of course, to take time and smell the flowers. There’s lots of new thing’s in the works here at the office. We are revamping the website, adding an E-Commerce shop to share the beautiful things we’ve collected over quite a few years. We are also in the process of designing a capsule collection of a few beautiful pieces for the E shop. I hope that TMS will inspire you to live and love beautifully. Since the inception of this website, Ive dreamt of an all inclusive destination, where one can be inspired and shop for beautiful things you can’t find anywhere else. You can learn how to make the perfect flower arrangement, How to decorate artfully and how to create a beautiful environment filled with art to rival the best tastemakers. During lockdown, I literally dreamt of this , “HOW TO LIVE THE WELL LIVED LIFE”. For this Spring Fashion Portfolio, We teamed up with our very good friends at Blake and at Neiman Marcus, Two of the finest shops in the city. I started my career at Neiman Marcus on the Visual team dressing mannequins and helping to present the best selling floor experience there was. Blake procured the Best Dries Van Noten, Margiela and Saint Laurent pieces for The Chicago Tribune Sunday Magazine, when I was the lead stylist there. THANK YOU! Unfortunately, due to financial pressure in the industry, Tribune Fashion was phased out four years ago, Alas. Enter TWOmuchSTYLE! This Portfolio was influenced by the one and only DIANA ROSS and was photographed by @Currancorbett and at currancorbettphoto.com. Our Contributing beauty Editor, Laura weathersby @laursbymakeup101 and at Laursbymakeup101.com, brought the clothes alive inspired by 60’s Mod Diana Ross. Our Contributing Hairstyle Editor Mercedes Smalls @masmakeupartistry created the perfect 60’s coiffure for our “DIANA ROSS” Maryam Jama @_maryamjama @onemanagement. Our Contributing Nail Editor British Burnett @nailista_mua encouraged us to think PINK and gave us the best “Stiletto ” nails for Spring. Yours Truly pulled the best looks from the two best shops in the City, Blake, Chicago and Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue. “WELCOME TO SPRING” “TELL THEM I SENT YOU”
