Photoshoot with Love Script Photograghy

I have been absent from the blogosphere for a week I have missed you all so much. Now at last I can show you the reason why I was absent for a week! I have been making garments for my first ever collaborative shoot with my friend Stacia of Love Script Photography.

Here are a couple of my favorites!

My all time fave!!!!!
To see it all click on over to Stacia’s post, here! You don’t want to miss it!
I have come to the conclusion that modeling is hard work. Designing is so much fun and using the gifts that God has given me is such a blessing as well as working with others that use the gifts that God has given them! I am praising the Lord for giving me such a wonderful friend and opportunity! I can’t wait to do this again!!!!
Take care friends =)
Wearing in outfit 1: ArtfullyArtista by Laura Clarke cotton caftan-y dress see it in full detail here; ArtfullyArtista by Laura Clarke orange ceramic bead and chain necklace; vintage belt;tunban-y head wrap made with the sash from this dress; and various bracelets and necklaces worn as bracelets.
Outfit 2: ArtfullyArtista by Laura Clarke seersucker stripe skirt made from vintage yardage(sooo swoonworthy); thrifted denim shirt that I removed the collar and front pocket from; Patagonia sandals; Linea Pelle belt; and vintage chain necklace worn as a bracelet.
p.s. Modeling is hard… but fun! Thus far I only model my style since I am not tall enough or skinny hipped enough for regular fashion modeling. But I don’t mind not fitting the standard because I like being me. So go forth, and be ye yourself =)

Fall Dreams

  Fall is approaching all those in the northern hemisphere, and filling all us clothes loving people into a flutter of joy. After all there’s nothing better than lovely lush layers… Anyway I remembered this amazing editorial from The November 2004 Issue of Organic Style, It’s called Tomorrows Vintage. With their time-less pieces and how to wear them when it was published and how to wear it in 2010. Trend wise, their how to wear it in 2010 was at times rather spot on. The stylist for this editorial is Luis Rodriguez. I really love all the luxe layers and vintage feel that this editorial is full of.

 “What to Pair It with with five years from now in 2010? ‘A fake-fur hoodie’ says Rodriguez”

“What to wear with it in 2010? ‘A platinum silver mini-skirt’ Says Rodriguez”

   “What to wear them with in 2010?’A great jumpsuit, ‘ says  Rodriguez”

“What to wear with it in 2010? ‘With another evergreen-a pair of jeans,’ Says Rodriguez”

“What to wear with it in 2010? ‘A big Poufy evening dress,’ says Rodriguez”

“Here the ultrafeminine adornment is paired with a masculine tweed jacket. Expect more of the same contrasts in 2010 says Rodriguez Who sees the brooch paired with an always fresh white tee.”

“What to Pair it with in 2010?’A pure classic: The men’s-style white dress shirt.Roll up the sleeves and and turn up the collar- and you’ve got the look’ ” 

In short one of the most inspiring editorials that I have seen in along time. The vintage feel the richness… Now I want to hop on a plane and go to the British Country side and stay at an old English manor…ahhh dreams…

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend =)

p.s. What inspires you all this Fall?
