Amazing Hollywood Giveaway over at Dedicated!


Dear readers, I (Stylesmith) have managed to score the most awesome Dedicated Follower of Fashion giveaway to date. How would you like to be one of the first to see 'Bright Star' a brand new movie starring Abbie Cornish and Ben Wishaw?

Bright Star, one of the most highly praised films at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is a portrait of love and loss between the 19th-century Romantic poet John Keats and the 18-year-old muse next door,Fanny Brawne. The film’s title comes from a love poem for Brawne, which Keats wrote in the flyleaf of his copy of the works of Shakespeare. Jane Campion’s return to the big screen features outstanding performances from Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss, Elizabeth: The Golden Age) as Brawne, Ben Whishaw (I’m Not There, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Brideshead Revisited) as Keats, Paul Schneider (NBC’s “Parks & Recreation,” Lars and the Real Girl, Away We Go) as Charles Armitage Brown and Kerry Fox (Intimacy) as Mrs. Brawne.

The two lucky winners of this giveaway will win two pairs of tickets to an exclusive screening of the film in Los Angeles on September 9th at 7.30pm. Unfortuantely I won't be there to join you as I'll be in England, however I hope to send the lovely Brittan as a representative in my place!

To enter just run over to the Dedicated Follower of Fashion blog and leave your name and email! One entry per day per person. Winners will be chosen at random on September 2nd!

Photographing the RGB Collection

So dear readers I have a quandry.

Today I began photographing the jewelry section of the new RGB collection for Stylesmith. Now I'm an avid photographer, but I do fashion photography and I have the hardest time photographing still life, or product photography.

With the RGB collection the vast majority of it is one of a kind items (due to the hand dyed and natural elements) so photographing the items on a model is neither time nor cost effective.

So... I'm now at a point where I'm torn between the first set up (the pink) or the second set up (the chalkboard) or maybe mixing the two a la the third grouping...

Dear readers: HELP!
