On the eleventh day of Christmas, WF brings to you the penultimate post in this series, pieces for a hair photoshoot with Jadoy.
I love creating images, whether it be behind the lens or providing clothing that can make a picture come together, it's always such an interesting experience. Sometime last year, I had the opportunity of working with my very talented sister who is a hair stylist, in creating some looks for images to go on her website. Here are two of the looks we came up with.
First is a bold curly hair statement that reminisces the 80's as well as a Spanish mamacita. I felt it would be well accompanied by an off shoulder mini floral dress. Beautifully modelled by Tife.
Second look was a Nubian mother and child. It was only appropriate that I favoured African print. I absolutely love mixing prints with each other as well as with other textures. 3d shapes and tulle are the little details that make these two pieces uniquely beautiful. One a one shoulder top and the other a cape. Presenting Zainab & La'shawna
On the tenth day of Christmas, WF brings to you ten bridesmaids in purple.
Yesterday, I brought you some beautiful hostesses. Today, it's the ten bridesmaids for the same 20th wedding anniversary. I thought it was a brilliant thing to have bridesmaids even for a 20th anniversary, moreso ten beautiful grown women. It wasn't an easy task choosing a style as I had to make sure they were very modest, flattering for women of fuller figures and also stylish. I opted for a lace and satin peplum pleated dress, a bit unconventional but it worked.
On the ninth day of Christmas, WF brings to you... nine & more hostesses that served at a wedding anniversary celebration.
Back in the summer, I had the privilege of styling the bridesmaids & hostesses for my pastors' 20th year wedding anniversary celebration. The colour theme was purple and lime green which really is a beautiful combination when it's done well. As I already intended to put the bridesmaids in purple, I decided on a monochrome for the hostesses but with a hint of lime green. The result was a polka dot pocket dress with a lime green sash :)
On the eighth day of Christmas, WF brings to you... bridesmaids dresses for a bridal party of eight!
These dresses were inspired by Disney princesses. The bride chose mint and coral as her colour palette. She wanted two mint ones for her MOH and Chief bridesmaid; and six coral ones for the rest of the party. I gathered up three beautiful ladies - Fife, Ayo & Siham for this post, one of them who happens to be one of the bridesmaids - Thanks ladies;) Thanks also to my neighbour's front garden that provided the flowers we used.. lol. We did some indoor and outdoor shooting so I must say that the actual colours are true to the indoor shots :) I love the simplicity and elegance of this dress...
