A Winters Tale

With the Holidays upon us everyone is planning, shopping and partying. Going to Holiday parties means you get to dress up in your finest, maybe buy something new and hopefully turn a few heads when you walk into the room.
Inspired by the Sultry, Glamorous looks of old Hollywood's leading ladies from the 1930's like Garbo, Lombard and Dietrich off we went into the woods to shoot.
All eyes are on you as you make your entrance. Your hair in effortless tousled curls, lips red as a rose, skin white as snow, a fur coat loosely draped around your shoulders to keep you warm from the brisk winter-y air. Your dress is a shinning gem - one of a kind and looks as if you hand picked it from Carole Lombard's closet. Strutting up to the first guy you see, you flip your hair, and in a cool, low voice say 
"Hello Handsome." 
Just another night on the town...
"Glamour is what I sell, it's my stock in trade"
Marlene Dietrich
"Don't Kiss and talk about it - men don't."
Carole Lombard
"I am not afraid of nothing except being bored."
Greta Garbo
We styled the shoot with a long lace dress from Free People, underneath we put a gold sequin slip for more glitter. Topped it off with a vintage fake fur cape then added lots of rings and necklaces. We curled Camilla's hair into long waves and of course applied deep red lipstick. For shoes, (although you don't see them) we used Jeffrey Campbell's black tick booties, that brought the look back to a current feel.
The ending of "A Winters Tale" at sunset in the woods felt like an Enchanted Fairytale.

We were featured on Lori's Shoes go check it out! 
They put up a blog post and also have Camilla featured on their web sites banner.  Lori's also has an amazing selection of shoes, bags and accessories and right now a lot of our favorite shoes are already on sale!
