Back to basics. One of our best shoots in a while, even enduring the soggy day filled with other people's cat liter strew about at the dump (really...clumps on shoes like no other. Why someone feels that can just pour it on the ground, and not dispose of it in the effing DUMPSTER TWO FEET AWAY is beyond me). Either way, we found that the patterns and textures of the fabrics were in full force, which always makes for a good photo shoot!
We realize we don't always show you how we have modified the clothing we use (scissors are a wonderful thing to keep in your car, for last-minute fashion modifications, impromptu-crafting and of course, self-defense), but we are going to try and start. Look for notes in the captions if we altered a piece to wear it in a unique way.
Shetland Wool sweater; Gray shift dress seen as skirt; Black Tights swapped from friend; Plastic 'Birkenstock' style sandals. I promise I am trying to look happier guys, trying.
Simple Shoe brand corduroy loafers
Vintage Brown Leather Ankle Strap Sandals
The Loft Ditsy Floral voile oxford; Cotton Swiss-print cuffed jumper; Vintage wash GAP cut-offs; Old butter leather brown boots
(Can we talk about briefly about these shoes? In person simply divine. I don't think they translate to film that well...) (We CAN talk about these shoes. They were SO COMFY it was like standing INSIDE a veal calf!)
Childrens Wool sweater, cut to be made a cardigan; Scoop neck gray blouse; Blue Multi-toned Knit skirt; Brown Leather ankle strap sandals
The texture of this skirt was so delightfully 70's, it would pair really well with wedges and some thick tights for fall!
This gorgeous fabric is from the side of an old rotty couch. It seems like such a shame, right? But this is why you bring scissors, ladies! Snip the pretty/useable/non-mildewy fabric for use as pillows, wall hangings or what-have-you. But be careful not to defile a nice couch that someone could use!
Dockers Pinstripe suitjacket; Pintucked silk tank; Vintage wash GAP cut-offs;m Old butter leather brown boots
One of my favourite looks is short-shorts with little man-boots; it really toms up an outfit. A fun juxtaposition is something crazy feminine on top, like an embroidery-detail tank or floral button-up. A perfect Fairbanks summer look!
