Our long time friend and local fashion blogger Nacole Gray was hand chosen by Hudson Jeans to participate in their Fall Blogger Event Competition. She along with several other fashion bloggers were given a $ amount and asked to put together an outfit at Nordstroms with only one major requirement, to incorporate any new pair of Hudson Jeans into the look. When our phone rang and she told us about the competition we were more than a little excited to work with her on creating a photoshoot that would give her outfit a story. Nacole spent a time in Paris and her style is often inspired by French and European fashion. She really wanted our shoot to have a Parisian coffee house feel. Short of flying to Paris, there isn’t a lot in San Diego the feel of cobble stone streets with wrought iron out door patios cozied up to them. But Little Italy does hold some of that European charm and they sure can make a mean coffee.
