A “Perry” moment

by Lee Oliveira on January 17, 2011

I have been a long time fan of Alex Perry and always wanted to find someone in a Perry dress to put on my blog.

I contacted Alex and asked him if I could pop into the store and photograph one of his girls. He said “sure Lee” so off I went, camera in hand. There I found the beautiful Maria who was happy for me to photograph her.

dress-Alex Perry; shoes-Terry Biviano; fragrance-Gucci Guilty

After a long and agonizing elimination process, I chose this gorgeous dusty pink dress for Maria. From there, we stopped by my friends at Chanel who did her make up and off we went to the Park for some quick shots.

I thought this dress was so pretty with the crystal and feather detail. Thanks to the slight breeze, I was really happy with the way I captured the moment.

Maria, you have it all! True beauty, stunning dress and shoes to die for.

FashionLifeCoach January 18, 2011

The design is fab, in regards to fit, the lace effect and the updated decorative feather detail. Sorry for the footwear…a bit off placed in my opinion.

Perrsonally wouldnt go for this dress. it’ s not elegant nor stylish. pink often signifies something bad in fashion.
but thats only how i feel. no general truth
