I wanted to create a Lookbook for my website. I had never attempted any project like this before and so I blindly jumped right in... Clueless. This is the collaboration I mentioned in this post here.
First things first, I asked Kimberly Yau (Kimberly Yau Studios), if she wanted to be the photographer. Now THIS I did right!! Meaning, I picked a friend to work with who I felt very comfortable navigating unknown territory. Next, I asked Jamie from refinedrag to be one of the models. Another smart move. She is very photogenic and a natural model. Plus, since I have been working with her already, albeit from a distance, I already know she is easy to work with and super great at styling. Here are some of Jamie's pics:
Seminole Heights Antiques & Home Decor, so literally everything you see in the pics is for sale! lolzzzz The couch, the mirrors, the dressers... I've said it before, but I'll say it again, Keith, the owner, really lets us have a lot of freedom as vendors and is really cool about all the things we want to get creative about and do in the store.
Kindermusik teacher. I have started a TeachGirlsToRock fundraiser (see it on the side of my blog) to try to raise money to pay for music lessons for Girl London and hopefully other little girls in Tampa... And this is the music teacher for the program!!! She is perfect because, as an amazing woman who plays, she can be a role model for the little girl students :)
here. The owl necklace is a huge vintage owl pendant (I had to use my own chain-- Tim Gunn make it work moment!) from another booth in the back of the store run by an amazing couple of guys. They gladly handed over the necklace for the photoshoot :). It's in the store now so if you know someone who, who, who loves owls it might be the perfect gift! The other necklace was from Keith's booth. I had been eyeing it a while and couldn't resist purchasing it for myself, but I already showed it off in the previous post here. All the bracelets are from the PinkCheetahVintage booth.
There was a lot of work that day that is not obvious in the pics. I learned so much. Next time I will take some behind the scenes pictures. Wish I'd gotten a photo of all of us. Oh well!!
