Deda is a talented artist who lives here in Cedar Rapids.  Her art is beautiful and brilliant.  She has a contagious passion for life and shares that passion with others.  I was excited to see her at Whitte's End Coffeeshop in Marion, Iowa and had to photograph her style.  Such an amazing combo.  I wish I would have made a photo of the cool earrings she was wearing.  You can find Deda on Facebook and check out her incredible work here:

I always enjoy the creative energy that Michele carries.  She has the heart of an artist and it shows up in the cool outfits she styles.  I often see her when I go to one of my favorite coffee shops, Brewhemia, in the NewBo district here in Cedar Rapids.   Another cool fact about Michele is that she loves wolves (as you can see in the cool necklace she is wearing) which are also my favorite animal.  Keep being you, Michele!  :)

Faith and Tracy

During Christmas break I decided to go hang out at Barnes & Noble (where I can often be found) and I was really excited to run into my friend, Faith, and her father, Tracy.  I love Faith's personality and she has amazing style!  Her dad's style is really cool too! Seeing them was a highlight of that evening.  :) 

Tim & Alycia

Tim and Alycia are a stylish engaged couple that were out shopping during the Christmas holiday.  They looked amazing and festive in their winter fashion.  I wish them the very best as they get ready to join their lives together in marriage.

I was enjoying a book finding moment at Barnes&Noble when I saw Jenny.  One of my favorite fall/winter styles is creative layering and Jenny is clearly a style artist when it comes to layering an outfit together. 
Jenny is a woman with creativity and someone who is pursuing her dreams.  And I have no doubt she will realize those dreams.

This is my beautiful friend and neighbor, Akwi.  She is an amazing individual and a very talented artist.  She had stopped over with something to give my wife, Melissa, and I had to post this stunning outfit she was styling!  

Meara and Chandler

These are two of my favorite people!  Meara and Chandler add so much joy to my life and I had to post this fun photo of them from Halloween!  Stop in and see them at Brewed Awakenings Coffeehouse!
