Happy Hallo..... wait.....
Listen y'all. I know we haven't made it through Halloween yet. I just ordered the finishing touches to my costume online right before I started typing this! This year I'll be attending the Third Eye Blind concert at the Jones Assembly. (BTW if you haven't checked this place out yet do yourself and favor and go!).
Anyways, I work in retail and that means I work ahead! As I sit here and munch on Halloween candy I'm here to show you an exclusive SNEAK PEEK of our Christmas collection!
I love EVERYTHING Christmas y'all. For real. It's my favorite time of the year! I love the decorations, the music, the smells, the food, the movies.....all of it! The Christmas Spirit is definitely alive! Even simply just sitting at my desk sipping a hot cocoa listening to Christmas Pandora is the best day! My dream is to one day spend Christmas time in New York City. Working in retail, that's a tough dream to have to travel during the Holiday season but one day I hope to make it happen!
When we created this year's Christmas collection we had quite a few visions in mind! Not only did we think about Christmas morning outfits, Christmas eve outfits (Where are all my Mama Claus's at?!) and just good ol Winter designs!
If you're searching for trendy graphic t-shirts for the Holidays this collection has the whole family covered! We've got unisex designs great for both guys and girls along with adorable onesies and tees for the kiddos!
The best part about this collection is that it's created exclusively for us in collaboration with local vendors! You won't find these designs anywhere else! THANK YOU to our local vendors who allow us to collaborate! We are forever grateful for the opportunity!
I am so excited to show you all this sneak peek of A Lush Family Christmas. It launches this Wednesday, November 1st at 10am CST in store and on shop.lushfashionlounge.com!
Our creative director, Matt Farthing, shot this collection solo and as always did the PERFECT job capturing my vision. He is so talented y'all and is active every step of the way from brainstorming shoot locations, shot ideas....even design ideas!
Here are a few of my favorite shots captured by Matt!
A huge thank you to Shelley and the family over at All Pine Products in Yukon for allowing us to invade their absolutely beautiful tree farm for the day to capture the perfect images. This tree farm was absolutely beautiful and would be the perfect place for your family to go pick a tree out together!
Some of the shots were captured at my house.... sooooo I decorated my house for Christmas in October....again lol! A couple years ago we shot the entire collection inside my house in October. That year I decorated fully on the inside and even had decorations on the outside of the front window making for interesting reactions from all the trick or treaters that year lol!!!
A HUGE thank you to our creative team for helping finalize my vision and bringing it to life! Special thanks to Kaylee Yeager, Kristen Giroux, Myranda Stout, Rylee Tubre, Matt Farthing, and Leslie Camp.
Huge thanks to our friends at Lifesquire for rounding up the perfect props to ensure we got the perfect shots! We couldn't do life or shoots without them!
A big thank you to the Lush mamas who brought their kiddos out to the shoot! The big kiddos you see all belong to Lush staff members! It was so fun watching these kiddos all play together and how much they've grown since our first shoot with them a few years back! They were running around enjoying playing together so much!
The babies you see are nieces and nephews of Lush staff members.
Last but certainly not least thank you to all the models! If you've read my previous blogs you'll know that every girl you see in our photos works either in our store or our warehouse! I love that customers get to interact with them daily during their shopping experience and get to know the faces behind our brand! The male model, Alvin, is a friend of our staff members. He's modeled for us for a couple of years now and we have completely adopted him into the Lush fam!
I hope you all enjoyed this sneak peek and are as excited as I am about this collection! Be sure to set a reminder for Wednesday at 10am CST to check out the launch of A Lush Family Christmas!
Trick or Treat!
Til Next time
