So one of my best friends is gorgeous and talented, and needed to take some fashion-type photos for her portfolio (she’s an actress and a model).  I recently got a great studio lighting set-up and was eager to practice, especially on such a willing participant!   The whole shoot was especially fun because of the resources that we had.  Her grandmother was the most stylish person I’ve  ever met, and had dedicated her life to all things wearable and beautiful.  So we raided the closet and came up with some fun looks.  Here’s a sample of some of the pictures we got!

Many thanks to Lauren for letting me put her hot face all over my blog!  Also, don’t forget to enter for the Beanie Baby Hunting Trophy giveaway, a few posts down!  You only have until Friday, and then it’s too late!  In case you want to know more abou them, here’s an excellent customer testamonial.

“Second, I fully support the killing and mounting of Beanie Babies for sport as well as ornamentation.  They are overpopulated and their natural preditors (small children and collectors) tend to lack the necessary killer instinct. It is a question of sustainability.” (the lovely ms. Marigold)

My first favorite of the day has to be crystalindumentaria.  Another Etsy seller from Buenos Aires (Argentina seems to be coming into its own on Etsy) she sells some very cool clothing.  Very figure concious.  To me, there’s nothing better than an interesting white shirt, and I think this one fits the bill.  A nice shape, a great neckline/collar and the ability to mold it to fit your body – what could be nicer?

Next is Champignons – I’m sure you’ve seen her work all over the place but I just can’t get over it.  Aside from the awesome name, she has great whimsical and slightly victorian items.  This piece is like an early movie – if you spin it around fast enough, you find that the bird will actually find itself inside of the cage!  I’ve seen this done in movies but never in real life.  Many more treasures about in her Etsy shop!

It’s not often that I want to buy everything in a shop, but I do when it comes to Hisss.  There is no shortage of excellent illustrators on Etsy but her style speaks just to what I like – historical figures and animals, all with a slight visual pun.  I love this illustration – called “polar opposites”.  She has a photography site as well that’s worth checking out.

Last is argonzales.  Her shop is filled with things for “manly men and girly girls”.  She has a great color palette and lots of little delicate items that are just interesting and strong enough to walk the line between feminine and awesome.  Ever since I took a silversmithing class years ago I’ve been obsessed with stacking rings and she has plenty of sets to choose from.

Thanks to all these wonderful creative folks for their amazing talents and energies!  I look forward to seeing what is to come from them.
