Today is the photo shoot!!! I am so excited!!! I wanted to share some pictures of the
clothes that will be featured in the shoot. The colors are inspired by Elliot Smith's album cover for New Moon.

This dress was the right color, but too plain, so I added some peacock feathers that I picked up from an estate sale last weekend. I had to trim down the feathers a lot and arrange them from largest to smallest, then I glued them on with my favorite glue, Fabric Tac. I also shortened the hem to a flattering length.

I love the general style and color of this dress, but it was a little too "80's" looking, so I eliminated the shoulder pads and twisted the sheer fabric to create skinnier straps and then sewed them in place.

80's metallic tank with 50's floral cotton skirt. I love the proportions! Tons of chains finish off the look.

60's lace fitted dress with bow belt. You can't see it here, but this dress has beautiful button detailing in the back.

I can't decide if I will pair this with the sweater or not, so we'll just have to see once we get it on the model. Paired with a necklace I made from an antique french belt and an extra wide black patent leather belt. I dyed some tights a mustardy yellow to wear with this dress. I can't wait to see how it all looks together. The hemline has been shortened since I took the picture.
