11 May Q: What Say You To a Cinco de Mayo Post? A: Sí, Señora!!!
By: Natalie Steen, @upthegetup Contributing Fashion Curator
In this case, the señoras are Laura Nell Burton and Christin Gish of Cloche Designs, the new boutique-service lifestyle brand in which I’ve finally found my obsession-over-details soulmates. The creativity, beauty and love that Cloche infuses into each of their projects (see for yourself here) is unlike anything I’ve ever stalked-from-afar before. Need some serious occasion inspiration, amped up tablescape aesthetics, or wowza-I-want-to-be-a-hostess-when-I-grow-up motivation? Follow their Insta and prepare to be awed as you #getyourclocheon (and to swap that dress-you-don’t-need on your wishlist for some china-you-didn’t-realize-until-this-moment-you-need-so-badly).
When Laura Nell & Christin reached out to me with the idea to create a collage styled for their upcoming Cinco de Mayo project, my reaction was a little bit of this, this, and this. It was hard not to get carried away while scheming what to dress-to-impress to an event that is sure to be planned with the utmost devotion to detail and commitment to theme (which just so happens to be my fourth fav holiday, y’all). Their big reveal won’t come until later this week, but (unlike those mature mavens) I just couldn’t wait another day.
So in sum, things I’m looking forward to include (but are not limited to): margaritas, maybe one day blossoming into a hostess-with-the-mostess & (until then) making some more cobloges (can I make that a thing or is that too Gretchen Weiners of me?) inspired by the motif-magic crafted by the masters at Cloche.
