Meet Susie Petersen

Susie Petersen, on left, is an Albert Lea resident and the executive director at the Albert Lea Convention and Visitors Bureau. Susie was adventurous enough to trust us to pick out her outfit, and the end result is fabulous. Her unexpected twist was the addition of teal to the classic black and gold outfit. Small touches like the teal belt and earrings made the outfit stand out.

Tami was a great sport for the photo shoot and didn’t mind trying many different poses before we found the perfect glamorous shot.

The fashionista sisters

Mckenzie Zuniga, right, along with her older sister, Brittani, on left, were up for both the dressy and more casual New Year’s Eve looks. McKenzie wore the purple skirt with confidence, and Brittani shined in the glitzy dress and heels.

Mckenzie’s unexpected item was the shiny, purple animal-print scarf. It really ties the black and purple outfit together. Brittani’s unexpected addition was the black felt hat that added a cute touch to the sophisticated ensemble.
