Every Picture Tells A Story

When Lori's Shoes contacted us about doing another shoot for their blog and web store we were more than delighted and up for the task.
Visions of rock stars and fashion icons of the past streamed through our heads when we first saw the tan fringe bag by Cut N Paste. The warm carmel color of the leather and the soft, distressed look, gave the illusion that the bag already had a rich history. Inspired by Rolling Stones girlfriend Anita Pallenberg and Beatles gal Patti Boyd, we immediately decided to style the new bag with textures and pieces that evoked the rock chick’s vibe. 
"There goes a gal, In the pretty skirt with a golden smile
That made you feel new"
Bella by Angus and Julia Stone
"There she sits with them big old field of daisies and rusty mills. 
And when the sun it shines on her hair of gold,
She's beautiful"
"And we'll go where we want, we'll sail the seven seas
I hope all is well, in Daisy's dreams"
Bella by Angus and Julia Stone

With thoughts of decade’s gone bye and our leather fringe bag across the shoulder, off we went to shop and explore the city. 

“I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriously,  ya never get hurt, ya always have fun and if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit all your friends”
Penny Lane,
Almost Famous
To achieve the “Almost Famous” look we paired a knit Free People dress with a chunky wrap sweater from Anthropologie and wrapped a burgundy vintage faux fur scarf around the neck.  Then we accessorized the outfit with textured brown tights by Hue, a beaded necklace we thrifted and of course the tan fringe bag by Cut N Paste.  On Camilla’s lips we used Nars lipstick in Heat Wave and on her nails is Deborah Lippmann’s, Stop and Stare.
  The day ended at the used book store in town where we cuddled up with a few good classics.
The shoot we did for Loris Shoe's and Blog was very inspiring and a lot of fun. As for the Cut N Paste bag, well it has not left Camilla's side since the shoot and she has received more complements and inquires than she can count.

We hope you enjoyed the story.
