My photo shoot with Maddy James

Thursday, September 18, 2014


On Day two of our weekend in Chicago, I pin curled my hair, grabbed some breakfast with Pj and headed out to meet Gina from Maddy James for a photo shoot for her autumn line. This fall and winter, Maddy James will launch their first plus sized pieces.



Maddy James specializes in vintage inspired lounge wear. All Maddy James pieces are designed for comfort, practicality and glamor, even when you're sleeping. My favorite thing about this line is that although the fabrics look at feel so luxurious, everything is machine washable!  See me in the beautiful tap pants set here.

I was able to get a few unedited behind the scenes snaps with my camera. I can't wait to see the finished photos from this shoot.

The first piece that I modeled was this gorgeous black nightgown.  This full length gown has full sleeves, burgundy piping under the bust and little flower accents around the neckline.

The second piece that I wore is this amazing two piece pajama set. The wide-legged cropped pants made me re-think my post on not wearing pajamas at the grocery store. This set includes a matching crop top with the same style sleeves as the gown and flattering diagonal seams along the bust line. The little cream colored bow on the top matched these vintage boudoir slippers perfectly. I could live in these pajamas!

For the last set, I wore the Maddy James tap pants in red with the tomato logo tank. The Maddy James tomato was designed by Gina's daughter. Gina's grandfather always said that her grandmother was the best looking tomato in town.

After the shoot, I got to get a sneak peek at prototypes from the rest of the new collection. The pieces will begin production this fall and I can't wait to share them with you!  I had so much fun at the shoot, I could have stayed and played with the girls all day!

  15. OMG, you are such a natural! I love those pom pom shoes in the black and the white, I think its especially fitting (in a hysterical sort of way) that they paid homage to the ads and TV shows of the past where the lady would be dressed to the nines doing domestic things like cooking and cleaning.
