My most recent shoot in collaboration with Dolly Pratt! We recently met the amazing and sweet photographer, Jose Leon and got together to create some dreamy fall looks! We want to showcase how to really mix vintage and new clothes and how versatile the results can be.

I love mixing textures like this floaty chiffon and the structured military cut of this wool and leather coat, I think it’s ultra feminine, both soft and tough..

I love this soft rose colored 1920’s dressing gown with layers of chains, you could also add strappy lingerie or even wear it over a bathing suit, but lately I’m into freeing the nips 😉

We paired this rose chiffon robe with

Oxblood cropped leather pants from The Gap and strappy stilettos

Again, mixing soft and tough textures…

Since it is almost back to school we played with a preppier look, mixing a vintage pumpkin toned pleated skirt with a nude silk slip, a beautiful tweed Paul Smith blazer and cute wooly patterned socks (thanks FreePeople) I thought of a modern day Franny Glass, sitting in the Yale club with Zooey talking about lame boyfriends and beautiful books.

We loved pairing 60’s style preppy sweaters with neoprene leggings and lucite heels, and a vintage camel blazer to cozy the whole thing up.

This would look really cute with a letterman jacket too!

And for the final one we went for a more rock and roll vibe, putting a vintage leather skirt with a vintage silk chiffon polka dot blouse and a Nasty Gal corset bustier and black chiffon pussy-bow! This is definitely one of my favorites, between a sultry secretary and lower east side songstress..

Which look is your favorite?
