A Whimsical Valentines Day Soiree

autumnhacheyvalentines

Please tell me what is more fun than gathering a couple of gals, breaking open the rose, and filling your apartment with balloons? (not much if you ask me)..

I recently met Joelle and Sabrina one day at Love Child Social– a new and upcoming coworking space for entrepreneurs + creatives. We hit it off chatting about the industry, blogging, and of course.. thrift shopping. *wink* & soon after began planning a way to collaborate together.

When Joelle mentioned the idea of a whimsical Valentine’s Day shoot- I jumped on board and offered up #OurBadassMainfloor as the location. It was the perfect backdrop for literally, hundreds of balloons, flowers, and the most stunning dresses from Honey.

I mentioned in a recent Instagram post how wild it is that Instagram is literally like a second little world. Full of creative people you may have otherwise never met in your lifetime. As much as Instagram gets a bad rap (and believe me, I shout from rooftops about how annoying and shady IG can be).. it’s actually really really insane to think about how many relationships- REAL relationships with people we’ve made because of this little phone app.

I had already followed Sabrina and Joelle on Instagram- so before meeting them in person, I already felt like I kinda knew them. We likely wouldn’t have stopped to chat to each other at Love child had we not already known each other online. It’s crazy to think about how many incredible connections we’ve all been able to make from social media that we might have never encountered otherwise. This shoot was definitely validation that social media can be an incredible tool if we  leverage it to cultivate real relationships and kick ass collaborations!

We gathered up a super talented team with Charuk Studios on photography, Balloon Bar TO with all the most feminine and lovely balloons, Honey dresses, Aldo shoes (their Valentine’s Day collection is so fun! I was obsessed with Joelle’s heart shoes!).. and stunning bouquets by FM florals. 

So, with that..I present our editorial story below. Nothing but love.
