Marfa Fashion Shoot Pt. 1 - Retro Glam

I mentioned to you before that I styled a fashion shoot with my dear friend Kayla Barker in marfa a while back. Here are some of the photos! Kayla is going to give us several posts, and I am doing a style recap for each one. Here are some fun details about part one!

1. Our gorgeous model, Michelle, had never done any modeling before... she totally blew me away! I knew she had a perfect style for what I wanted for the shoot, but I had no idea how comfortable she would be in front of a camera. SHE WAS A NATURAL. Girl could work it!
For all of these shots, I had pulled Michelle's hair into a slow, loose side bun. (Tutorial to come)
In this segment, she wore a Phoebe Couture dress. This dress went perfectly with the glorious Thunderbird Hotel's surroundings. The shoes are  Michelle's own - I have no idea where they are from, but they happened to be great. 
For jewelry, Michelle is wearing the following Stella & Dot items:

I kept the accessories simple for this one. Her makeup is a simple, elegant style, with a touch of drama. I used NARS blush in Desire. I applied a dark plum shadow to the crease and created a wing, and used a heavy line of Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner.
The lipstick in these shots was a revlon color that I will have to hunt down to remember. :)

2. Also at the Thunderbird, the shots in the green dress were high on drama and low on fuss. The dress is a vintage find that I came across in an Austin Thrift store a few years ago. It is one of my favorite pieces. Ever. 
With the color change, I left Michelle's makeup as it was. She wore:

3. The final outfit in the Retro Glam series was a Bestey Johnson dress. I snagged it at the outlet in San Marcos for a steal. Again we used Michelle's shoes, which modernized the look.
We pulled back her bangs for this one - I think it sweetened her face. It was lovely. 
I intensified her plum and black makeup, deepening the concentration. For her lips, we switched to a pinkish tone.
Her jewelry was pretty fabulous for this one:
J. Crew Starfish Earrings $34.95

The women in the laundromat were having quite a time watching us!
This was such a fun adventure...
