Speed Queen

Hitting the Fluff N Fold seemed like the perfect place to shoot Camilla's new vintage dresses. There was actually a lot of people doing their laundry that afternoon so we had to work around them and strategically move the cart of clothes to block them from view. It was quite a challenge but what could we do it was the only time we had to shoot. We never even got to photograph the blue dress on, because the afternoon was getting away from us and even though Camilla did a quick change out at the car (surfer style) we got the last bit of light when we shot the pink one. 
Mixing big chunky platform shoes and anklets is a fave look right now and with the vintage length of the dresses it fit perfectly to the theme. 
Our vision, was a cross between Betty Draper and Sandra Dee with just a dash of Lolita in the mix. 
To end the post we added a little retro fun with Stockard Channing
singing  "Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee"
Grease 1978

Enjoy the weekend!

You may have not had a lot of time but Camilla sure looks gorgeous! Seriously, that first shot is awesome. Lovin' the colors! And that "vintagy" feel really showed on the pictures!
