"MASH UP": Playing Stylist

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

 (skirt: thrifted; leopard print dress (worn as a top): thrifted; shoes: Soule Phenomenon)

Last Sunday, I had a photo shoot for my newest online shop baby...MASH UP

I've been trying to brew up an online clothing shop ever since I got my hands on this beautiful, thrifted sheer polka dot dress (which looked like it came from the 50's) circa year 2006. I knew that I had to share these amazing vintage and thrifted treasures to other young-at-heart rebels who take pleasure in one-of-a kind articles of clothing which can be mashed up with any personal piece from their closet.

Four years ago, I never really had the time to plan out the details for an online shop because I was just plain busy with work...

But now, four years after, I'm so excited to be finally releasing the first collection for MASH UP!

I'm still currently working on the actual shop site but I'm already done with the editing of the photos from the shoot. I will be posting teaser photos very, very soon!!!

For now, here are some behind-the-scenes snaps from the shoot.

Chynna, my model, getting prepped for the shoot. Isn't she pretty?

Teaching Chynna some poses...

Yes, I wore fluffy and comfy ladybug slippers because shoes aren't allowed in the photo shoot area. :)

I actually prepared 20 different looks for the shoot but due to time constraints, I ended up reusing some pieces over and over again just to save up on "clothes-change" time.

Checking out the photos with my amazing photographer, Sarah...

Of course I had to have a shoot of my own! Here's a candid shot of me looking stupid. Haha!

Are you guys already excited for Mash Up? I am!

Teaser photos to be posted this week!

I'll keep you guys posted once the shop is up. Please support Mash Up. :)

P.S. Did you guys notice the new blog header? It was a surprise for me from the lovely Camille of Big Bangs Theory. Super thanks, Camille! I love it!
