As summer begins to draw to a close, we look to our favorite pick-me-up here at Nous- and we’re not just talking about pumpkin spice lattes- fall collections. We’re currently captivated by 31 Bits fall lookbook starring Greta, with their bright and delicate baubles popping against classic New York chic style. Their 100% recycled jewelry is handmade and directly benefits the women who create it- taking the term ethical business to a whole new level. We can’t wait to get our hands on their urban knot necklace and the Kensington necklace– both inspired by the Big Apple’s bright lights and skyline. Keep scrolling to see how Greta wears their newest line!1

Most, if not all, photographers we love have a signature style. Dana Pennington is no exception – his shots stand out for their uniqueness in terms of light and contrast. From serene gardens to edgy alleyways to even a simple room, his backdrops always seem to make for captivating canvases on which our girls stand out. We love the way he illuminates each model in his shots, immediately drawing the audience’s eye on them. Check out some of our favorites below. Thank you, Dana for your awe-inspiring work!

Come midnight on December 25th, we’ve officially maxed out on the yuletide cheer. Between (almost) overdosing on sugar cookies and taking one too many pictures in ugly Christmas sweaters, the last thing we want to do is figure out what to wear on New Year’s Eve. But you’re in luck: with the help of Necessary Clothing and our girl Greta, we’ve rounded up some fabulous options for you to rock on glitziest night of the year. so you can now spend more of your precious holiday vacation moments sleeping in (a.k.a dodging out-of-town relatives who’ve well-overstayed their visit).

New Year’s Eve is the one day of the year where the more sparkles you have, the better. If you want to shimmer your way through the night, look no further than the Bex Bandage Dress and Ariana Sequin Dress – two dazzling options that will be sure to keep your date’s eyes on you. Both pair well with neutral accessories: simple jewelry and nude or black heels are a nice balance to the show-stopping dress.

If your style preferences lean towards “less is more,” we’ve got you covered. The LBD is a chic look any time of year, and New Year’s is the perfect opportunity to give it a twist. We love the Iris Lace Maxi Dress and the Sunrise Lace Dress for an elegant alternative –but equally stunning — option to a sparkly frock.

For the bold of heart, what better way to say “I’m different” (2 Chainz voice) than wearing a pair of killer bottoms to your soiree of choice. These dressy sweatpants are a dream come true for those who crave something comfy-cozy. Pair them with a fun faux-fur vest and simple top for the perfect party look. If you’re more in the mood to show off those new shoes Santa got you, try on these glam shorts – perfect for dancing the night away.

Wherever life takes you this New Year’s Eve, know that you’ll be well-dressed (and well-prepared) for those Instagram photo shoots. Happy 2015!

Last week something super exciting happened: We had our first in-house casting in the Nous Fashion Den with our dear friends at Swell! As California girls, we can’t get enough of their huge selection of clothing and accessories for a surf-oriented lifestyle. I mean, we don’t actually surf or anything, but that doesn’t stop us from heading to Swell whenever we need to up our beach-attire game!  Plus, they update their collection daily, which is an absolute must for true shop-aholics like us.

Part of the functionality of our new space is to be able to provide next-level services for our beloved clients, including in-house photoshoots and castings.  Nous Fashion Den castings in particular are designed to be both a convenient and luxe experience for our clients.

As you can see here, the process begins with all of the girls gathered in our open call area.

One by one, they head into the next room for some one-on-one time with the client. In this case, the lovely Dana Wimberly from Swell‘s core team was there to greet the girls and get to know them a little better.  Dana sat casually on our pretty little couch (complete with sparkly authentic Moroccan textiles that we just can’t get enough of) and interviewed each girl.  From the same seat, she also had an unobstructed view of the studio area, so she could watch the girls model after speaking with them. Our Art Department Director and in-house photographer Ashley was right there to have the girls do a mock-ecomm shoot so that Dana could sit back, relax, and watch them do their thing. Fabulous!

Casting in progress

When building the studio space, we brought in the expert opinion of one of our favorite photographers, Ed McGowan, to help us get the lighting just right.  He did a fantastic job, look at how perfect these casting photos of the girls come out!  Of course, for ultra-convenience, we made sure to give Dana a thumb drive with all of the images to take with her back to Swell HQ.

My glasses and high waisted shorts.

What’s your favorite hair or make up trick?

My favorite makeup trick is putting lots of mascara to open up the eyes! I never leave the house without it! My hair trick is cheap and easy to make. I apply avocado & olive oil maybe once or twice a month to keep it shiny and healthy. And of course, Biotin supplements once a day. A must have!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I can cry very easily.

Tell a random funny story of something that happened in your past.

My most random funny story happened 2 years ago at a fashion show. Right before the show I had to run quickly to the bathroom to change outfits. In the middle of all the rush and typical craziness I never realized there was a candle on next to where I had put my pants. Seconds later the pants were on fire and burning in flames. I started panicking! It was terrifying. I almost lost my mind in the bathroom trying to get the fire off the pants! Thank God for water and human instincts! I managed to put them in the sink and turn off the fire but I’m not going to lie…the pants were a total loss! It was quite embarrassing and scary. Now, I always double check for candles when changing in the bathroom.
