today we decided to try something new – fp jemma and i went over to the photo studio and did a little styling session to show you all some cute ways to wear the pointed maxi slip! our stylists put together some amazing outfits that i would NEVER think of, i took the photos and jemma was our model!
look one – simple and sweet:
look two – out on the town:
look three – casual cool:
look four – boyish layers:
look five – sweet like candy:
doesn’t she look great? click read more to see more photos and for details on what she’s wearing in each look!
welcome to a new segment on the blog where i ask our stylists what items they love right now! they always have the best taste and what do you know, after talking with them i found myself wanting both of their choices…
all four ladies present agreed that these socks are the cutest – and incredibly versatile. they’re super soft and the color combination is fun and new – they add a quirky pop to any outfit. wear them with shorts and tennis shoes, or dress them up with a skirt and clogs. it doesn’t matter how you wear them, they are bound to get noticed!
here they are (in navy) in our july catalog- i think they add a really cute boyish touch to the slip:
they love the tribal print mixed with the leather strap and details, and it is the perfect size to hold everything you need for a quick overnight getaway. the print is neutral enough that you can wear it with anything – it looks cute mixed with other printed items or just with bell bottoms and a tee, which is what our web stylist says she would wear!
prior to opening our new store in costa mesa, ca, a couple of our display team members who work out on the west coast made a trip to the rose bowl flea market to pick up some props for the store. one of them shared her photos from the shopping excursion and i found myself practically drooling over the blankets, accessories and various little trinkets she found. philly needs a (monthly!!) flea market like this! i would be in heaven.
as mentioned, the photographer for our july catalog was the amazing benjamin alexander huseby – who also shot one of the most beautiful editorials i’ve seen for acne paper sweden, featuring model iselin steiro…
just across the mountains from telluride, dunton hot springs resort is a romantic ghost town set in an extraordinary alpine valley. it is described as a town that thrives on contradictions. the rugged, hand constructed exterior shields comfortable, exquisitely furnished rooms, and a saloon worn down over time by visitors serves fresh, mouth watering food. guests can take long, grueling hikes followed by soothing massages and look out at snowcapped mountains while resting weary bones in steaming natural hot springs.
i have been dying to learn how to do this ever since i first saw it on some of the models on our website! watch as our makeup artist (and fishtail braid expert!) deanna demonstrates how to do a fishtail braid like the ones on our website and in the pages of our july catalog. featuring our lovely shoe buyer :)
in april 2010 our catalog team went to california to shoot our first wholesale catalog, and then road tripped to dolores, colorado to shoot our july catalog at the beautiful dunton hot springs. our wonderful producer put together this travel diary of their journey.
stay tuned for much more from behind the scenes of the catalog shoot ;)
our july catalog drops tomorrow! this beautiful book was shot at dunton hot springs in dolores, colorado and the result is stunning – i must say it is my favorite catalog to date. check out this magical behind the scenes video put together by our insanely talented videographer.
