a walk in the garden for audrey grace6/18/2012
Several weeks ago I collaborated on a photo shoot with Jaclyn Bethany of Audrey Grace. The occasion was to celebrate the opening of the Audrey Grace boutique online, which launches today. I had the option of selecting four dresses out of eight to style, so I chose garments which I would likely wear on my own. I had a lot of fun putting together accessories that I owned, with the dresses from the boutique!
My sister Vanessa helped me immensely on deciding the location, which was a Japanese garden, and working on the entire project. We were a small team of two so I was endlessly thankful for her hard work. It couldn't have happened without her! Jaclyn wanted a retro feel to the photographs, so we thought of representing what a 1950s girl might wear on a trip to Japan. I almost tricked myself that I was there!
The dress above was my favorite to wear. The fabric was almost-metallic and had an incredible sheen. Staying true to the 1950s, I thought it was necessary to include a capelet, since everyone accessorized so much back then. If only we could emulate that effort every day!

I'm leaving for my trip tomorrow but I'll have a few sporadic posts scheduled in my absence. I hope you all have a great week ahead and also take a peek at my feature on Misslikey's blog from this past weekend. I talk about what I'm reading and listening to! x
