Working in a studio was a learning experience to say the least. A bit scary at first because you realise how much more detail these professional cameras can capture when they have a professional behind the lense. Then you start to loosen up and feel like Cindy Crawford. It's one of those weird things that instantly happens when you're looking so damn thrifty.
I hope you love these photos of my friend Michelle. I took pictures of her once in a thrifted waflle grandpa sweater (here) that do not compare to the gorgeous greek goddess she is below. She's a vision in blue. We thrifted this dress that very same day as the grandpa sweater at Goodwill. The elastic belt she is wearing I had previously thrifted at Salvation Army, but when I saw them together I knew it was a match made in thrift heaven. The look was very much inspired by the simplicity of Lanvin Spring 2011 and his famous hit of the collection, the one-shouldered dress.
