Tell us a little bit about your daughter who joined you for the shoot.

Gia is the light of my life and is the kind of baby that makes you want to have another baby—really sweet tempered and now that she’s almost a year, she’s got her own little personality! One of the perks of having a daughter is that you have an abundance of lovely dresses you can put her in.

And how did you chose the Allied Arts Guild for your shoot location?

This was the photographer’s suggestion, I’d never been there before, and it was a wonderful pick.  Lots of great places all around the grounds for a shoot, and it was mostly quiet during the morning when we were there.

How would you describe your sense of style?

I’m a little bit of a girly girl, I love dresses and pretty flowing tops. Also, being a new mom, comfort is a must.  It’s also nice to be able to try a trendy piece without buyer’s remorse!

Trendy, classic, or a little bit of both?

A bit of both is nice!

Many of our members have undergone some kind of style evolution. Is this something you’ve experienced?

Yes. I was always a bit of a tomboy, but after pregnancy, dresses seem to flatter me most and now I like dressing up a little more for work.

What’s your favorite Gwynnie Bee brand and why?

Definitely KIYONNA!  The essential wrap dress is so flattering.  I remember putting one on for a night on the town with my husband and when I walked into the room he was in, he blurted out, “You look HOT!” That pretty much cemented my decision to buy it.

What are your thoughts on the emerging sharing economy?

LOVE it.  Keeps costs down and you can read reviews before you put something in your closet.

Any words of style advice for the ladies of GB?

Don’t be afraid to experiment! [click to tweet] One of the perks of Gwynnie Bee is it gives you a license to try things you would normally pass up.  I’ve tried and liked pieces I never would have given a thought to before.

    I just sent that Essential Wrap Dress back — loved it but so short on me! It looks lovely on Nikki.

    She looks great, but couldn’t they have ironed her dress?
