This is the second year that my younger sister and I have done a photo shoot with just each other, the rural scenery of Eastern North Carolina, and our dad’s camera. I like to envision locations for photo shoots, including off-the-beaten-path spots. Finding a unique spot is a thrill, and I usually find something during my drive there. After spying a location, I begin styling the outfit for the location in my head. I pre-pack for NC so whatever I bring is what I use, there is no extra purchasing of items, just creativity using what we have. For these particular shots, I located vintage and unique scenery. The first location is a beauty salon located in a small black and white house, the second is an old store, and the third is a slave plantation.
My sister and I have a different style from each other, but both looks always work for the location. That is the beauty of individual style and the ability to create and connect with art. I am very exited about this post, the styling, the locations, the nature, and the making of art. This post is a welcoming of Fall 2013 from StyleStamped and is featured in three separate post.
Location No. 1: Jay’s Beauty Salon
This little beauty salon was so cute to me. While driving down south, I passed it on my way and had to come back to it. It had a total vintage-like feel too it, and yes, it is a true operating salon! I styled this look to match the beauty salon theme, with a sheer BCBG Max Azaria Techno Mesh Skirt I found at Nordstrom rack, a black 3/4 sleeve bodysuit and a chambray blazer. To enunciate the vintage feel, I added pearls and gold rimmed specs. The heels were spiked bow Sam Edelman D’Orsay pumps in nude.
My sister used the rural landscape for her background. She was styled in a cropped top, made from authentic vintage print fabric and tassels (our mother made it by hand from a dress she wore in the 1960’s), denim, and native american inspired boots.
