A Summer Evening with NOTO

NotoVerticalBy no means would I consider this a style blog, nor do I pretend to know the first thing about fashion photography or blogging; however, being a visual artist, naturally I have always been drawn to colors, patterns, and lines in any way, shape, or form, not excluding clothing & accessories. So when local fashion boutique NOTO reached out via my friend Jessica, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to support my neck of the woods & local artists while introducing my face a little more in this space.
Next Saturday, June 7th, NOTO is hosting their sixth annual summer fashion show. All featured pieces are handcrafted in the USA, much like this Chris & Carol number I’m wearing. The event will take place 8pm at The Trolley Barn in downtown Akron, during the city’s annual art walk so stop by for food, drinks, live music, and to support the heart of handmade.
Tickets are currently for sale through NOTO’s website and all styles will be available for purchase immediately following the show. Hope to see you guys there!

      Appreciate it Ashley! I recently scooped up those rings at Banana Republic–the rest was all NOTO. :)

      Thanks Sarah! We tried something new with the sun behind and using an external flash…still haven’t figured out all the kinks with that approach.

    Love your outfit, the pattern on that dress is so fun! You look stunning in these images, love the backdrop.
    Wish I lived near by so I could check out Noto, it sounds like a great store! I love anyone who finds it important to support American made products.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

      I did but I just made it! Had to sit in the back. Super disappointed I missed out on meeting you ladies again. This needs to happen soon. ;(
