As the temperatures rise into the 90’s this week, someone has dramatically increased her intake of iced coffee and frozen yogurt and that’s totally ok! Most importantly though is factoring in lighter fabrics that breathe because they are key during these crazy blasts of heat. I’ve found that anything synthetic or heavier is just torture. With buying vintage sometimes it’s hard to find that balance of great design without sacrificing finding the right kind of fabric. I recently shed a lot of my polyester purchases because I was finding that I was feeling quite uncomfortable in them, and truth be told, no matter how cute you look, feeling uncomfortable takes over and becomes the center of attention. So tip of the day is to never sacrifice feeling good, over looking good. I know that goes against the fashion is suffering or whatever people like to say, but NO, it’s so obvious when someone feels like shit, that it takes away from any potential cuteness.
Onto some styling I recently did for OmniaVintage’s summer look book, with keeping easy breezy fabrics in mind. This was one of my favorites mostly because I just ADORED the print of this dress. Take a look for yourself.
The lighting and the location were so gorgeous for this shoot it didn’t take much to get some awesome shots. The model and I worked together in getting her vibe in line with her outfit. I suggested she get into the character of a girl who was waiting for a boy to pick her up for their first date, and to feel all the emotions one feels when they are meeting someone for the first time. Nervous, excited, scared, hungry? Hah. The sweetness of the strawberry dress was balanced out with the ethnic flair of her jewelry and bag and shoes. I didn’t want this to be overly sweet and I think I was capable of turning what could have been sugar overkill into an outfit you and I would feel cool walking around in.
