{Collaboration} Retro Day At The Factory: Part One

A few weeks ago I had the great honor of working on a fun new collaboration with a group of very talented ladies. This shoot featured fabulous retro-inspired styles from The Factory, vintage costume jewelry & jewelry styling from the one & only Sasha Maks Vintage, photo shoot assistance by Tori B. Amos, the perfect Mod makeup by Christina Aguayo of Looks by Aguayo, and photography from Jennymay Villarete of J. Villarete Photography.

Enjoy this first lookbook – I hope it whets your appetite for the second round of shots!
