Preaching Vintage Fashion (my first shoot behind the camera)
When my friend Zoe suggested that she'd like to do some posing so that I could take full control of the other side of the camera, it seemed like a great idea. Even better, she agreed to let me style her completely with some of the contents of my wardrobe. Zoe would freely admit that vintage style is not something she would think about choosing herself- but doesn't it suit her?
The whole inspiration for the day was 1940's Hollywood glamour. The dresses, the hats, the make-up. Allthough funnily enough, only one of these dresses is genuine vintage. The grey sleeveless one worn with the two hats came from Beyond Retro. The blue beaded one is second hand Next, the black lace one is from a charity shop and the blue one is thrifted Topshop. But they're all second hand and do have a real vintage look.
The grey top with lace underneath the blue dress was one customised by me, and the tailcoat is a vintage family one. Shoes throughout are some Mary-Janes that unfortunately no longer fit me, so were given to Zoe at the end of the shoot! All hats, necklaces, watches and rings are various vintage pieces either found in charity shops, market stalls or are from various relatives.
I think that Zoe looks really gorgeous, and am quite proud myself with my first foray into being the person doing the photography- a role that I definitely want to explore a lot more!
Running out of time now, sunday night homework and all that jazz. So I will defer my latest 'debate' until the next post. Hope you enjoy the photos.
