Things we love this time of year: tracking down tailor-made presents for our loved ones, the smells of cookies and crisp wintery air, and putting on a glitzy cocktail number to dance a holiday-party night away.
Local photographer Nicole Vaughn captured that merry spirit with a seasonal shoot, dubbed Cocktails and Chivalry, featuring holiday looks inspired by festive sips and gentlemanly behavior. A team that included wardrobe stylist Sherri Garcia and hair-and-makeup artist Tiffany Lowry (a.k.a. Tiffany Colors) dressed up models Abby Armstrong of SMG Models and Kole Bradley.
