Glam Squad + Sneak Peak to our Next Lookbook

This past Sunday there was no sleep or time off for the weary. Instead Karen and I worked with our main stay Glam squad to put out our latest upcoming lookbook.

Here are some behind the scenes of one of our edgiest lookbooks yet to give you a peak to some of the latest designer new arrivals to hit Buttons & Bows. As Karen and I were in the process of putting together these looks, we were quite honestly at a loss and didn't really know what we were going for. All we knew was that we wanted to feature these exceptional new arrival designers from Herve Leger, to Rick Owens, to Capulet, Alexander Wang, Chanel + some of our select vintage wares to give you a glamorous look all your own. The accidental end result produced a super glam, boho-chic  mixed in with a touch of unsubdued sass resulting in one that you're currently looking at today. If you haven't already signed up for our newsletter, do it now or connect with us on Facebook for our exclusive lookbook launch. These pieces are being held hostage at our Buttons & Bows head quarters until the release so that these one of a kind pieces can be up for purchase. Remember first come first serve!

Of course, this all wouldn't be possible without The Glam Squad, which is an all-star cast of creative individuals who made this lookbook a magical one. 
Til the next!
