A couple of weeks ago I got together with friends and photographer David Bridle for a little photoshoot. When I saw the flowery clothes and accessories at The Boutique, Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was the inspiration that came to mind. I did two similar looks, with the main variation being the accessories. If you are familiar with Frida’s work you will know that it features mostly her self portraits and always with a very serious expression on her face. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any painting of her smiling, please correct me if I’m wrong. I hope you like these, I had a lot of fun preparing the looks and planning the photoshoot.

I’m adding this post to Patty’s Visible Monday over at Not Yet Dead Style.
Last Sunday I got together with friends and photographer David Bridle for a little photoshoot. We wanted to dress up and David was up for something a little different so we were all quite happy to spend a morning having fun with photos and clothes!
I wanted to try picking clothes for other people – I normally only pick clothes for myself and with the help of Debbie from The Boutique, we came up with a few outfits we all all liked. Daniela chose the 80’s Madonna look for a bit of fun, Filipa wanted to try a few different things she might want to incorporate in her every day style and the clothes available at Debbie’s shop inspired me to put a couple of Frida Kahlo inspired outfits together.
Here are a few behind the scenes photos we took, I will be sharing the actual photos very soon. I hope you like them!
I hope you liked this little preview, I need to thank David for taking the photos, Debbie for so graciously lending the clothes from her shop and my friends for letting me dress them up. Don’t forget to check out David’s page and if you live in Grantham swing by Debbie’s little shop The Boutique at the Guildhall Street.
