These are some photos from last week! I got to work with three awesome girls- Vanessa (model), Irem (photographer), and Julie (hair and makeup). We took all of the photos at my house. Vanessa is soooo pretty! She's super nice and smart, too. She's learning Chinese! Some people have it all....not fair!! :-(
The bedroom was so bright and sunny today, so I jumped on the opportunity to take some really nice sun splashed photos. That's the problem with Montreal....you look outside and it seems really beautiful, but then you go outside and it's -15 C. I can't wait for summer anymore!!!
Here are some pics from today....you can find the clothing in my Etsy shop.
Ohhh and I will have to post pictures from my fancy photoshoot with Vanessa soon!
Maybe it's the Russian communist in me, but I really love the idea of trading. I recently did a trade with the lovely Diana of A Touch of Vintage. I got this amaaaazing vintage scalloped front dress in exchange for something from my etsy shop. I can't get enough scalloped edged things in my life...
Clothing swaps are a great way to switch up your wardrobe without impact on your wallet or the environment. I hosted one this Saturday and it was sooo much fun! Everyone scored some amazing threads.
Here are some tips for a successful clothing swap:
1. Make sure everyone brings at least 5 pieces. I specified that they have to be washed, cute, and wearable.
2. Invite 10-15 people who have a similar style. I think that's what made this one good...all of the girls who came are really into fashion and love vintage shopping, so there were tonssss of awesome things for everyone.
3. So it wasn't the most organized, but we did separate the tops, dresses, bottoms, belts, and shoes, making it a lot easier to look through things. Hanging the dresses on a clothing rack was also super helpful!
4. Take the leftovers to a charitable organization.
