Portfolio Proofs (My First Styling Job!)

What's up you guys? I missed you all! Sorry I'm a little late with my posting. I know I said I was going to try to keep three days max between my posts. I had been doing good with that however life doesn't always allow us to follow the things we have planned for ourselves. So I've been being mommy and hustling my gloves and working on a photoshoot that took place Thursday. It was a great experience! The people I worked with were awesome. The energy was great from the photographer Jason Ramon, all the models and the designer, Sae'Vonne. She designed the bustiers & tutus used in all the shots. Add her fan page on facebook here Fashionn Junkiee. So, here are the results! (This was just to start off me and my friend Sae'Vonne's portfolio so there's not a lot of creative direction. Just my vision for styling them & her designs). Enjoy!

Look 1: Pink Thursday. Model, Dior Rain.
Bustier & tutu by Fashionn Junkiee, Gloves by Quench Fab Accessories.
Nicki Minaj was a big inspiration for this look. She's known for her alter ego being barbie and her album released at the end of November was entitled 'Pink Friday'. I also wanted to incorporate a girly look with a little bit of edge but not so costume-y. Wearable (to the daring) but also really fun.

Look 2: A Fairytale. Model, Jessie Jane
 Bustier & tutu by Fashionn Junkiee.
I've been dancing for 15 years of my life. When I saw this tutu and bustier it immediately reminded me of a costume you would see in the ballet. Almost Nutcraker-ish (I've seen the Nutcraker 3 times & done the Nutcraker about 10 times so I know lol). And so I wanted this look to be very soft and pretty. Like a prima-ballerina in a fairytale ballet. And I think she looks very regal in these shots which is exactly what I was going for.

Look 3. Futuristic Vintage. Model, Jessie Jane. Bustier & tutu by Fashionn Junkiee.
This turned out to be my FAVORITE look of the night. Styling Jessie in this look was like a breath of fresh air when it all came together. I call this look Futuristic Vintage because here you see the polka-dotted bustier and the leg-warmers which is totally 80s. Then you have the peep-toe stilettos and the sunglasses and tutu that make it kind of futuristic. Or at least a 'now' trend. And I just loved how everything clicked. All the pieces, the poses she did, everything. It was great!

Look 4. Rocker Glam (My true aesthetic) Model, Jessie Jane. Bustier & tutu by Fashionn Junkiee
This look was really fun to style and like I said above, true to my aesthetic.
I love all the color, I love the accessories, the jacket (a favorite piece)...I only used one glove on Jessie because I felt like that was apart of the look I was going for. It was spontaneous. Jessie rocked it (again) lol

Look 5. Military Holiday. Model, Sae'Vonne. Tutu by Fashionn Junkiee. Jacket is vintage, designed by Sae'Vonne's mom.
I was heavily influenced by the military trend but I added a twist of holiday magic withe the tutu, tights and shoes. It kind of reminded me of the soldier coming home for the holidays and like going out clubbing lol. In my demented mind that made sense even though I know a lot of soldiers are coming home to be with family. But you have those that just get loose right? Lol. That's the great thing about fashion, it doesn't have to make sense! This look was fun. I styled her with a big gold watch that is a women's watch but it has the men's watch feel, a bangle and a really great beaded ring. Loved this look!

This was the group shot. I think it came together really well!

And here's a little random-ness for you guys...
I got my lip pierced last night. Totally impulsive. I've been wanting this piercing since I was 16 but I had forgotten about it. My cousin dropped by my house un-announced asking me to go to the tattoo shop with her so I did. And I thought, "While I'm here, I might as well get something done. And this was it. I like it =)

My cousin Chelsey in the chair. Miserable lol.

Her tattoo of her daughter's name. Chanel Rose.

Video of the day: Nicki Minaj ft. Drake-Moment 4 Life
There are a good 6 or 7 songs on Pink Friday that I like. This is one of them! Love it. Congrats Nicki!
