One of the most fun and rewarding types of photo shoots is a fashion shoot because there is a team of creatives involved to bring a vision to photographic life. This Spring I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Cori McConnell of Lady Bow Tie. Cori’s world is one immersed deep into the love and work of fashion. She is a fashion blogger, a fashion show producer, and owner of Shop Lady Bow Tie, an online fashion boutique which makes her not only a fashionista in the know, but one that desires to bring affordable fashion to women everywhere.

Cori highlighted many unique pieces in our shoot with the purpose of creating Lady Bow Tie’s Spring/Summer 2013 LookBook including her signature look, bowties as well as bags, shoes, sunglasses, scarves and exciting prints and patterns on dresses, tops, and skirts.

Hair & Makeup was done to Cori’s exacting vision by Lisa Jersey Chappell, freelance makeup artist. What makes working with top notch professionals even better, is the fun we have together because everyone’s passion is aligned! Our Models Sarah and Carmen were spot on in executing the vision and after a mighty long day of shooting in studio and outdoors, many hair, makeup, and clothing changes, we finished with the feeling that we all nailed it! Take a look at some of my fav shots and of course you must check out the LookBook, full of LadyBowTie’s Style for the Brave!

Straight from the pages of Lehigh Valley Style magazine, yours truly graced the pages. Check out my pic from the step-and-repeat at the Bethlehem Fashion Event – Runway Preview Party at Artfully Elegant in Bethlehem, PA

Joan: Cori of LadyBowTie, you look fabulous! Who are you wearing?
Cori: Well thank you Joan. Oh this old thing? Well, let me tell you, I am wearing a full length burn-out dress from H&M, a Stella & Dot (borrowed from my sister-in-law) necklace and motorcycle boots from 100 years ago by Sam & Libby. Are they still around, Sam & Libby that is?
Joan: I have no idea Cori but you look great.
Cori: Thanks again Joan, tell Melissa I said “Hello”. Oh and you show is hilarious!

Ha! I’ve always wanted to do that. But it probably would of sounded more like. “Ummm….ahhh…hmmm….I dunno. Ahhh yeah..thanks.” Complete brain freeze on the red carpet for sure.

Check it out, my first interview via Earned Beauty:

My friend and neighbor Cori, creator of fashion blog LadyBowtie, sat down with me for a one on one interview. Here’s what she had to say about, her blog, her busy schedule and the future of LadyBowtie:

EB: LadyBowtie is such an inspiration to me, what was the inspiration behind Ladybowtie?

LB: Thank you, that is very flattering. *blush* I am so grateful for your support. The inspiration behind LadyBowTie, the short answer, is my love and appreciation of fashion design, make-up, shoes and personal style. Everyday I walk through Times Square, literally the cross roads of the world, and I am amazed and impressed by the personal style on display. I see trends forming right in front of my eyes, and I want to report those to you. It doesn’t matter what brand it is, all that matters is that the person who is wearing it looks and feels incredible in it. That is what LadyBowTie is all about, enjoying the art of dressing.

EB: Do you consider yourself a fashion forward individual?
I do, although sadly, I haven’t been too “forwardy” lately. My day job and my toddler chasing night job really doesn’t foster a fashion forward environment. Ha! Hopefully, this fashion site thing goes well and in a couple of years and I can hang-up my sensible loafers and wear my cookie monster fur coat everyday to my new ridiculously cool LadyBowTie, LLC headquarters. The only thing you really need to be fashion forward and what I try to encourage through LadyBowTie is fearlessness. If you love it, wear it, and don’t worry about what other people think.

EB: You are a first time mom, how do you handle a full time job, blogging and motherhood?

LB:The schedule is not easy. My typical day is: wake-up, workout, go to work, come home, be mom, put kid to bed, become LadyBowTie, put myself to bed – and repeat. Being motivated is #1, my LOVE for the content is #2 and being organized is #3. Every week I sit down and plan out my week for chores, for my kid, for my husband and for my blog. If I don’t get everything done, I move it to the next week. It is vitally important to have that list or things just won’t get accomplished. In the nature of full disclosure, at the end of the week I’m dog tired but I feel so good and accomplished it helps to keep me motivated for the week ahead.

EB: Has being a mom changed the way you view style and pragmatism?

LB: I don’t think that parenthood has changed my personal style but, yes, it has changed my ideas in other ways. I am a proud mother of a daughter, step daughter and an aunt to a gaggle of nieces and I know that they are always watching. For example my 16 month old daughter watches and inspects me so closely when I’m putting on my make-up. She studies my movements and listens to me when I’m getting dressed and looking at myself in the mirror. I have to always be conscious of the message I am giving to them through my own actions and yes, how my business may affect them. I have to be a model of positive self-esteem and an example of a healthy woman. I have to create an environment where they will feel free to express themselves in all areas, including their dress, without putting all their value into their looks. Lets face it, fashion is about a lot of things but it is also about physical appearance and you have to tread very carefully when sharing this type of media with girls (and boys). I want them to really understand, that at the end of the day, clothing and make-up are not at all important. Their heads, their hearts and how they make a positive impact in the world is where their true beauty and style lie and that is the most imperative lesson of all.

EB: What will the future be like for Ladybowtie- your overall vision for the blogging site?

LB:LadyBowTie is like a speeding freight train flying down the tracks right now. There are so many things that I want to do with her and at the moment and so little time. Ha! My immediate vision is to keep writing fun addictive content, gain new loyal readers, learn more about web design so I can create an even cooler looking site and educate myself on monetizing effectively so I can earn a little bit of money. Long term, it has always been a dream of mine to have my own e-commerce site. Wouldn’t it be cool if LadyBowTie sold clothes and handbags too? It would and it will! (See last bit about making $money$ first.) After the online shopping site, next comes a paper catalogue (I’ve always wanted one of those – print is not dead yet.), and then to follow a chain of brick and mortar stores. Dreaming big my friends, dreaming big!

The Skinny on LadyBowTie

I have more than a few theories on style. LadyBowTie is a site designed to celebrate those thoughts on fashion, beauty, and fearlessness. LadyBowTie encourages positive self-esteem and freedom of expression through personal style. It also encourages a healthy relationship between fashion and your wallet. And last but not least, LadyBowTie is here to educate on aspects of the fashion and beauty industry through style news, street-style pics, interviews, trend/forecasting, articles, weekly series, and readers’ suggestions. ~Cori a.k.a.
