This is how I wear the Geometric Box Top Dress from my Spring 12 collection. I just love the sky blue geometric print on this little mini dress and obviously an Alyssa Nicole dress wouldn’t be complete without a bow! I styled this dress with a pink scarf, creme cardigan, and beige lace up flats for a a stroll down Embarcadero and coffee at the ferry building.
This week I finally finished up my Fall 12 collection! I am still in shock at how amazing all the dresses look, this is my first real collection that has been professionally finished (not handmade by me like previous collections). I scheduled a photo shoot & agreed to doing a fashion show for the line before I even knew the collection would even be finished. I am pretty sure no one in their right mind would book a shoot and show without a finished line, but something in my gut told me we could pull everything together in time. I hit so many bumps in the road during the last few months of getting this collection ready that I just figured, ‘what is the worst that can happen?’ and amazingly enough we managed to finish like 3 hours before the photo shoot. I seriously was making necklaces and accessories up until 15 minutes before we started to actually shoot in studio. I was totally stressed out during the shoot for my Fall 12 collection because we only had 7 minutes to finish shooting 6 more dresses, and by some sort of miracle, we actually shot 17 looks in an hour & a half.
