painfully gorgeous

last week i was invited to go play dress up with amber from painfully hip. as part of the painfully hip design collective, amber is creating vogue-worthy fashion editorials by connecting all her friends in the industry on super fun collaborations. i brought along some things from my collection that i thought would work with her film noir inspired, old-hollywood-glamour-meets-80s-futuristic-edge theme.

(this one's my favorite. and i just found it the day of the shoot! such luck!)

how amazing is the model, eileen? this was her first photo shoot and she looks fabulous in every picture!!!

also part of the shoot, some amazing threads from thunderhorse vintage, one of my very favorite vintage shops.

this fur coat is ridiculously awesome. the fur is arranged in chevron stripes and the coat is fitted in a 40s fashion. it's five times pretty.

all the items in the shoot are for sale, lucky you! some are on etsy, but most are up for auction on market publique, a brand new vintage only (!!!) marketplace.
i have stolen amber's descriptions of each of the items as they are far better worded than my own would be. click on the links below to find them in the shop.

crystal, of article salon, turned eileen's hair into an amazing marlene-deitrich-meets-flock-of-seagulls masterpiece, perfectly in keeping with amber's vision. tyler and christina made magic of the makeup and the photos, and also held the shoot in their home, inviting us in with open arms and making the day extremely fun.
i had no idea that 'work' could be such a blast!
