Time Travel - Mad About Plaid from Fall's Past

Today I came across a lookbook that I made for Fall 2008 and a look from Boy by Band of Outsiders caught my eye, so I reviewed the whole collection. I am still in love with this collection and think the styling is genius! The subtle addition of plaid as an accent is great and I also adore the plaid on plaid styling. As the saying goes: fashions fade but style is timeless.

Trends that you can bike in

Recently one of my friends suggested that I should have a post about bike fashion. What a great idea! Sometimes it seems hard to find something that is both functional and fashionable for girls that ride fixed gear or single speed bikes. It is challenging at times to find the right shoes and sometimes I want to wear something other than my go-to staple: long leggings. With riding in mind I searched for collections that mixed high fashion with riding sensibilities

These outfit pairings + whatever shoes that are comfortable to ride in = fashionable function

Styling: Stairway in the Sky Shoot

Here are some photos from one of the more recent shoots that I worked on. The whole shoot concept was based around this awesome vintage staircase, with a blue color palette.

I produced the hair and makeup on this shoot and styled the second look which is the outfit with the shorts. As far as the hair goes, lately I have really been loving the whole big and messy hair look. When we decided to change up the hair for the second look, I styled the hair into a messy french twist with a headband.

The makeup is a variation of the on trend cat eye look, topped off with a pale pink lip.

Fashion Featured and New Vintage

Hello all!

Recently we have decided to change the photos that we have on our shop. Instead of doing the usual catalog style, we have decided to shoot our merch outside to create more of an atmosphere. I love this new way of showcasing the clothes, it is a lot more natural although shooting outside is much more of a challenge at times.

The last shoot was so windy that most of the clothing shots didn't turn out, but luckily there were a few that made it yay! Our model, Mona, was fantastic!

We have actually had a great response; we were featured in this month's issue of Endorphinum ezine in the fashion section. Check it out!

Here are some more recent shots and clothing from Salon Mystique.
