Cheers!

Happy New Year everyone! This NYE was certainly one for the books at my house, mostly because I was determined to NOT have another NYE like the fail of a fondue night last year. This year I created a photo booth to document all the crazy that occurred during the holiday festivities (and of course all the fashion).

Over the course of 48 hours an estimate of 60 people came through our house for our annual Macaroni Party and New Years Eve festivities.

We had our fair share of silly:

My NYE look took several different routes over the course of the festivities. Anywhere from flirty fishnets and floral to lace backless dress and red lip. A NYE look is all about glamour. It’s the one night to get dolled up and enjoy yourself. Grab some crazy accessories. Pull out those high heels and strut your stuff. Personally, this year my favorite look was floral mini dress, red lace fishnets, paired with a chunky heel and shaggy coat. Jumped right into 2015 in style. Often my NYE sets my palette for the new years style, I’m thinking there’s a lot more floral in my future.

May your 2015’s be as swell as you are. Stay fabulous, stay silly and most of all get ready for a whole new Proprium Floris in the coming new year!

With Glittering Eyes

” And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

-Roald Dahl

The past few weeks have been incredibly busy, so I have been searching the archives for some of my favorite throwback shoots to show you all. This photo shoot was part of a motion study for my photography class two semesters ago. This is one of my favorite shoots of all time because the results came out different than I intended, and well I spent a few hours throwing glitter at my sister (what could be more fun?) This project I believe was the launching point of this blog. It got me focused on the beautiful reality we live in and shifted goals on entering the fashion industry. The fashion industry can reveal the beauty in everyone no matter what size, shape, or in this case age you are. Fashion can be used a tool to boost confidence and narrow the gap between women by breaking down competitive walls. Fashion can only do this if its focused is shifted because right now the industry sometimes is doing quite the opposite. The world needs more magic, or maybe a few more people watching the world with glittering eyes.
