Anatomy of an Outfit

I spent the afternoon today photographic some new fall clothing and accessories for the shop at SquidWhale HQ, my new textile design studio space. It was nice to have a big open space to work in (we're not totally moved in, so it won't last long) and a "borrowed" dress form, but the light was not ideal. The shoot quickly turned into an outfit-making bonanza. It was so fun! I didn't plan it, but there were just so many pieces that went so well together.

Outfit #1:
70s black felt bow cloche
70s-80s black velvet riding blazer
80s black leather skinny belt studded with gold lion heads, Anne Klein
modern heather gray ruffle blouse (mine)
80s-90s brown and white houndstooth skirt (in the shop now)
80s dove gray leather mini-wedges


Outfit #2
40s-50s handmade  mini-wrap made from recycled mink fur
70s plum corduroy cropped blazer
modern heather gray ruffle blouse (mine)
70s-80s weathered brown skinny leather belt, Calvin Klein
80s-90s brown and white houndstooth skirt (in the shop now)
80s dove gray leather mini-wedges
c. 1930s-40s Continental brand oversized kisslock purse/overnight luggage 1930s-40s


Outfit #3
1920s mens' dress shirt with shell buttons
1980s plaid maxi-skirt, Liz Claiborne
70s-80s weathered brown skinny leather belt, Calvin Klein
1960s-70s woven raffia clutch with scalloped edge, Gimbels


Outfit #4
