Behind the Scenes

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be the wardrobe stylist for a photo shoot with model Arianna McKinney.  Arianna wanted to do an old-school vintage Hollywood glamour type of shoot in order to add some vintage inspired photos to her portfolio.  I was so excited to get to style this shoot for many reasons.  For one, this was the first shoot I styled for someone other than myself.  Secondly, I am really into old-school movies and vintage glamour.  And thirdly, I got to work with a fabulous photographer, Gregg Cestaro, and make up and hair stylist, Keith Patillo of Shine Salon.

I of course went to some awesome local boutiques to borrow clothes for this shoot.  I'm really glad I got the opportunity to show the local resources we have here to create an old Hollywood look.  Thank you to Adelante, SoLa, Mana Culture, Amelia's Retro-Vogue, and Megan Summerville for providing me with some amazing pieces.

In addition to borrowing from these stores, I also pulled pieces from my own personal collection, as well as Arianna's.  The end result is awesome and I can't wait to show y'all the photos that Gregg took.  But for now, you get a behind the scenes sneak peek from the photos I took on set at Arianna's pretty house:

The middle two pairs of shoes are by Seychelles and are available at Adelante.

Very cool, and congratulations! What did you use from your personal collection? Any of your family heirloom clothes?

@Mikael, No I didn't use any family heirlooms. But the long silky looking dress, the fur collar I put on that jacket, and the black heels are all mine.

@Sydney, Thanks!
