Picture Perfect





Two years ago, I was the girl capturing the world behind the lens, but since starting Barbara Ann Style Blog, I’ve learned a few tricks to nailing a good shot. Fashion Magazine asked their style panel, how we do it? Here is what I shared about being in front of the camera. The secret I didn’t share, was my super talented secret weapon, Trevor Negin. I’m lucky enough to have fallen in love and married the Toronto-based photographer last year.

I Got It From My Momma







Fashion Magazine asked their style panel this week about their favourite decade to wear. Since I’m a vintage lover, I found that this task was very hard, I sorted through my closet to find some of my favourite pieces, and this dress that was stolen from my mom really stood out. She purchased it during a shopping spree, on a trip to Tel Aviv back in 1977. Growing up with my mom as a nautral beauty and fashion inspiration, I then realized that my favourite items were from closet. Here is what I said to Fashion Magazine.

Some of my favourite things from my mom are:

  1. This Dress
  2. These Earrings
  3. Collar 1 & 2
  4. These Bangles 
  5. This Purse
  6. These Pumps

On A Walk






This past spring, my partner in crime, Trevor Negin and I started the using the hashtag #OnAWalkWithTheNegins, and seem to have started a trend. Using custom hashtags, to create instagram libraries of trips (#roadtrippinwithboo, #eurotrippinwithboo, #usatrippinwithboo), events (#bandtsurprisewedding), or activities (#barbaraannstyleblogjuicing) allows for new followers to explore easily the history of our travels and life.

The view from this shoot is one that we’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of in the future, as we are planning a big move come 2015, and the official opening of our new studio.

Make your statement







Fashion Magazine asked their style panel this week about styling more than one statement piece. Here is what I said, including my tip on keeping the look feel balanced by ensuring no more than one item in your clothing, accessories and one beauty feature to highlight.

Summer Sweater







We have entered the month of August, and our nights have just gotten cooler and there’s a slight breeze throughout the day chilling the air. I think it’s time we really start thinking about transitional pieces that will work well into the fall. Right now there are amazing sales in the stores, and it’s a great time to think ahead and pick up pieces like this sweater dress, a steal- last year from the clearance rack at Club Monaco.
