The Modern Beehive

Another favorite hairstyle of mine right now is the Modern Beehive.  It adds such a fun vintage flare to any look.

Wedding Updos 2012

Here at Rice Rafferty Couture Accessories.  We're constantly designing new unconventional veils.  In addition to working on new designs we like to keep up to date with the hottest hairstyles that work best with our designs.  My favorite wedding updo right now is the low updo (chiffon) slightly off to the side.  It adds such a romantic touch and looks amazing with birdcage veils, blushers, or poufs in additional to more traditional veils.  The style flatters many face shapes too.

Metaphors and Memories

 Between now and the end of June if you're in the Buffalo area come and see my mother's selected works from her collection of 10 Years.  It's a substantial body of work consisting of her coffee filter dress (she actually incorporated used coffee filters to make an entire garment), trashions - dresses made of upcycled plastic bags.  The art is from life experiences of being a daughter, a mother, dealing with losses (My Life Unraveling at 35), and her personal experience with breast cancer.  Some of her pieces were including in national and international shows brought together in one show for the first time.
