I had Friday off this past weekend so my friends and I decided to have photo shoot. Though I wasn't in any of the photos, I styled them all and took a few of the photos.
We had a different theme for each shoot. The first shoot was sort of a Seventeen magazine/fun-teenage girl themed. My friend Heather said that she wanted to wear as many florals as possible, so I styled her in a Bar III dress, a Merona houndstooth cardigan, a doughnut necklace from Hot Topic, and Dr. Martens. Heather also wanted to wear this feathered skirt meant for dance on her head, which I thought was very fun. My other friend, Christina, didn't really care what I styled her in, so I just wanted her to look cohesive with Heather. She wore Monteau dress, a Forever 21 jacket, an H&M bowler hat, vintage earrings, and her own Keds.
The second shoot was bringing vintage clothes to the modern day. The dresses and the jackets that Christina and my third friend Veronika are wearing belonged to my grandmother in the 1950s. Christina only brought her Keds with her, and since she doesn't fit into any of my shoes, I had to make it work. I decided to follow in Karl Lagerfeld's footsteps and style them in sneakers (like Chanel's S/S 2014 couture collection). Along with the vintage dress and jacket, Christina is wearing her Keds, H&M sunglasses, and a cuff while Veronika is wearing a Buddha bracelet and necklace, a chain necklace from Target, a fascinator, and Nikes.
The third shoot was edgy and a bit avant garde. When Veronika arrived at my house, she brought some of her own clothes. When I saw these faux leather leggings and this sheer, pastel pink blouse, I knew immediately that I wanted to pair them together. Along with those, I had here wear these ankle-strap flats from boohoo.com and a houndstooth cape that my mom actually made for me. Because of how quickly I knew what I wanted Veronika to wear, it took me a minute to coordinate an outfit for Christina. I eventually decided on a long black "vintage" dress (if you consider the '90s vintage), a long, oxblood, leather, vintage coat, and a Forever 21 necklace. Her belt actually belongs to Veronika as a dance skirt (it's also what Heather wore on her head in the first shoot). Unfortunately, Christina had to wear her bright red Keds with this since she doesn't fit into any of my shoes. But other than that, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
We all had so much fun doing this. We're planning on doing this again, however we're thinking of doing it again when it's a lot warmer. By the time we finished our last shoot, we were really cold. At least we're not in the polar vortex!
