As you may remember, I attended a preview trunk show of Georgie & Elaine at Banyan Tree back in April. We drooled over the clothes on the rack, got to meet the designer – Devin VanderMaas, and wondered how to get each and every one of these pieces into our closets, stat!
So it was my lucky day when I got to team up with Maria of the style letters and Jessica Holdsworth for a city-chic Georgie & Elaine shoot. The line is designed by Devin in Cleveland, so it was only appropriate to shoot her beautiful line in some of the city's most picturesque spots. Our fabulous photographers, Justyna Walker and Kassey Sikora, nailed the aesthetic of city romance.
Devin describes the inspiration behind Georgie & Elaine as "that of a real-life fairytale and the desire to share other magical, historic, and wondrous stories of found love." It's a collection for the true romantic, and the clothes reflect that so perfectly when worn by each G&E girl.
So much, in fact, that I just had to jump around in this gorgeous dress.
Lots of giggling going on ;)

Strong winds and fountain spray couldn't stop us!

The second you slip into any of these pieces, you can not only feel the romance, but the quality and care that went into making them. All G&E pieces are made with love in New York City, with mostly 100% silks and natural fibers. The silks, jerseys, and chiffons are soft, wearable, and don't wrinkle — so there's much to love! Not to mention its strong Cleveland roots. You can shop pieces of the collection here and read more about Georgie & Elaine on Facebook.
