Friday Wildcard

Not quite sure why we’ve been sitting on these photos for so long, but that’s what the Friday Wildcard is for, right? We shot these in the basement at Via’s Vintage with the incomparable Audra. Not what we were envisioning from the start but we ended up with a sort of 1970’s-David-Bowie-meets-gilded-disco-queen kind of thing. How do you accidentally make this happen? We have no idea. Enjoy:

Forever Bride | Photoseries by Garrett Born

We are just ticked pink with Forever Bride’s new website, and even happier to feature our latest bridal themed photo shoot in honor of the occasion. We had a chance to take these photos in the beginning of the fall {behind the scenes happenings here}, featuring lovely threads from Flutter Boutique and the makeup stylings of Pricilla Bruce.

Appendages

While taking our trip down memory lane this week we came across more then a handful of goofy photos of Jen and I. We took the following series last summer on a whim and I’m not sure why we haven’t shared them yet. A combination of a little free time and the creative juices of Garrett, Jen and Joan. Garrett Born and L'avenir | legs-4 Garrett Born and L'avenir | legs-3 Garrett Born and L'avenir | legs-2 Garrett Born and L'avenir | legs-1

Bohemian Boardwalk

Another happenstance of a beautiful day burst through the rainclouds and showered the city of Seattle with a bit of sunshine. GB and I made the trek down from First Hill to the Pier and snapped a few as the sun set into the Olympics.

What can I say, I’m a fan… I went 70’s this time and paired it with my favorite fringe top and pair of longer necklaces.   I’m wearing a thrifted blue felt hat, The Passerine Necklace, and two items from my personal stash; a 1940’s amazingly amazing Art Deco style amber sterling ring from Via’s Vintage and a recycled crystal and pearl necklace.
