Paulie Antiques Winter 2013 Lookbook!

These were shot out in St. Joseph, IL, yesterday not far from the location where Joao was lost. It turns out that my new friends Robert and Thena have a 100 acre farm (on which Joao lived for 3 months) with absolutely breath-taking woods. They were unfortunately sick with the flu when we visited the location yesterday, but we thank them so much for letting us photograph on their land (and returning my cat to me)! The winter here has been so mild, lately.... barely even nipping at my ears and toes. It felt a little rushed and chilled at this shoot, and I'm so pleased my idea of candles worked well and kept the girls warm. I wanted to introduce the idea of natural hydrangea flowers in their hair, again, because of the dead feeling of the earth around us. Colorful hydrangeas will appear again in the spring time :) Enjoy the photos........................

Models: Allegra and Elena Wentworth
Photographer: the astonishing Nathan Adhikari (Adhikari Photography)
Stylist and creator of Paulie Antiques: Polly Bland
some photos I took:
Allegra is wearing: a 1960's polka dotted halter dress available soon at Paulie Antiques, my Great Grandmother Frisina's golden 1960's gloves with yellow rhinestone buttons at the wrist, vintage 1980's pink heeled booties, a 1950's fur trim jacket, and grapefruit slice earrings made by me.
Elena is wearing: a vintage ostrich fur muff and matching hat, vintage white buttoned gloves, white heels available soon at Paulie Antiques, a 1950's bright pink dress available soon at Paulie Antiques, and peach slice earrings made by me.
love, polly

Your photos are always so amazing. All of the elements together in this one come together SO great, Polly. You truly out did yourself. I am such a sucker for candlelight too so those are surely my favourite.
