Yesterday, I did a shoot with photographer Robert Kley http://www.rjkphoto.com/ , hair/makeup artist Mary Rockwood Crabtree http://www.makeuplasvegas.com/, and an AMAZING model from Los Angeles Kahshanna http://www.kahshannaevans.com/
We wanted to flex our creative muscles!
Clean lines, neutrals, beige and cream, exposed brassieres, and military influences are all big Spring /Summer Trends so we decided to go on :
Fashion Safari! The Hunt for a Good Deal.
I’m going to tell you all a big secret!
Come closer..shhhh…I styled this entire shoot from TJ Maxx.
I know! Fastionistas all over the country are shreaking and telling me to shut my mouth!
But you CAN dress current, trendy, and fashionable shopping at outlets and discount stores. You just need to be armed with knowledge of the current trends and an eye for quality pieces.
The biggest factor when shopping outlets is to TAKE YOUR TIME! DO NOT GET FRUSTRATED! Peruse the store calmly and examine each piece carefully! Ask yourself “Is this piece either current or classic?” , “Is this piece constructed well?” ,”What can I pair this with?”. One big mistake many shoppers make is grabbing pieces that they have a passing desire for without knowing what they are going to do with that piece, how they are going to wear it. Then you just end up with a closet full of clothing with the tags still on that you never wear. Visualize the look head to toe!
No single piece in this series of photos cost over $24.00.
