Hello friends! It's finally time to share this beautiful moody fashion shoot with you. I collaborated with the awesome Jen Gannigan of Magdalene Photography, knowing she would be absolutely perfect for capturing a darker ethereal story. I had a crazy quirky concept for this one, inspired by the endless storybook possibilities and fantasy of Halloween. It was such a blast creating these looks from some of Green Bay's local thrift and resale boutiques, and then brainstorming hair and makeup ideas with my dear friend Victoria. We had tried this glitter mask idea before but never for YOU magazine, so I was excited to have an excuse to capture it for this publication. This story is all about the beauty of eco-fashion, with every piece a second-hand or up-cycled item and all so ridiculously lovely. I've been known to be a thrift junkie so this assignment was right up my alley. Loved it so much!
Here is the shoot in its entirety and if you pick up a copy of the mag, you'll see a small selection of photos alongside a really cool selection of "Perfectly Paired With" items, each featuring a scent, book and drink to match the look. Cool huh?! Be sure to grab a copy and get all the buying details. :)
Thank you to the incredibly talented people who brought this story to life!
