closet inspiration :: greensboro engagement photographer

Watching the Academy Awards this past Sunday, I couldn't help but ooh, aah, and ugh over what the celebs were wearing. Angelina sparked enough leg jokes to keep us entertained for the rest of the year, The Help's Octavia Spencer looked stunning in her figure-flattering white gown (and won a much deserved Oscar for her role as Minnie - go on girl), and Emma Stone proved that gingers can look fab in red. In fact, I loved her gown so much, that I've decided to use it as inspiration for today's wardrobe to spice up your engagement photos.

Let's face it... not all to-be-brides are suited for jeans, boots, and blazers. Some of you want NEED more glam in your lives... enter this classy little his+hers frock, which I think would be just lovely for an evening engagement sesh in the city or maybe even in a beautiful hotel lobby.

Remember to dress for your shape... steer clear of clothing that is too tight or too loose. One reason that I LOVE this red number from Modcloth, one of my favorite online shopping addictions, is that it accentuates the waist, showing off your figure without giving away every curve. Pair it with a great ruffled heel like the one below to elongate the leg and a few statement accessories and you're good to go. Alot of times, we think we'll just put our guy in a button-down shirt and jeans and he's good to go, but don't forget that he looks great with accessories, too! This simple black fedora and plaid tie provide the perfect pop of personality for your man.
