We've been so hard at work costuming, shooting, modeling (in some cases), converting and editing for these photos. I work with such a wonderful group, and I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for the time they're spending with me on this project.. it means the world. This is my amazing friend, Allegra.. she is a wonderful photographer and has the most mesmerizing eyes. She even laughs at my corny jokes!
I LOVE this bow tie and I've put so much time and effort into it.. I ordered the vintage trim at bonanza DOT com and found the orange material at the I.D.E.A. store in Champaign, IL. (Someone was making a shirt out of it!)
I styled Allgra in some wonderful yellow ochre tights, red vintage mary jane t-straps, a vintage yellow suitcase, vintage bright orange gloves from Dandelion Vintage, a teal skirt I thrifted from Goodwill, a vintage mustard top from the U of I costume sale, and a flower that I crossed the highway to pick. :D If you'd like to purchase my first and only design like this.. you can buy it from my etsy.
