Miss Teen Illinois Visits Inspire Me!

Posted on 14 July 2014


I was SO excited when Miss Illinois Teen USA 2014, Miranda Fenzau was visiting my home last week and she offered to model for Inspire Me!  I immediately got a hold of Brooke, my photographer to see if she could arrange her schedule to do the shoot.  The next day, we dropped everything to get this opportunity to work with Miranda.


This dress by Weston Wear with the floral paisley and beaded detail along the neckline was so cool against this weathered looking door from the East Race Office Building.


I added these AMAZING beaded chandelier earrings by Chan Luu to compliment the beading in the dress.


The brown multi colored 5 wrap bracelet by Chan Luu matched the colors of the flowers in the dress perfectly and giving it an understated look.


We absolutely loved how fun and flirty this outfit looked on Miranda!


It is all about her and this colorful, neon gypsy skirt!


A simple little crop top is just right for this skirt.



A simple gold beaded heart bracelet by Chan Luu was just the right accessory for this playful look!


Cool and chic is how I describe this look.  Let's start with the awesome sleeveless scuba-like fabric dress from Red 23 that everyone is raving about.  The fabric is so stretchy and smooth and comfortable!!!  A HUGE trend right now!   The jacket from BB Dakota is this years vegan leather version that we sell out of every year.  We love the crinkle in the fabric and the draped front look it has when it is opened.



Add a great statement necklace to any outfit like this one and you will surely get noticed!


Another one of our scuba fabric pieces from Red 23 is this cute black mini skirt.  Again, so comfortable because the fabric stretches and feels amazing!


We just received this sexy little lace crop top with black embroidery that has a key hole split in the back.



The chandelier earrings and pearl and crystal wrap bracelet are both by Chan Luu.


These black BCBG gladiator sandals, I found at DSW and I use them in almost every one of my photo shoots lately because they look great with almost everything!


The cool mural behind Miranda is just being painted at the Purple Porch Co-op, our neighbor that connects consumers and local producers in a food cooperative with emphasis on sustainability.  It is coming along so nicely that we thought it would be a great background for this leather disc dress by Staples.  It comes with the slip underneath and is also available in a Gold color as well.



We are all looking forward to watching Miranda compete for the Miss Teen USA crown on August 2nd at 8:00 pm!

This young, gorgeous lady was so sweet and kind to let us work with her last week.  We were in awe of your professionalism.  It was truly an honor!  THANK YOU MIRANDA!

I hope that we inspired you!!
