Photo Shoot: Village Girl with Phantom Photo Part 1


Brittany Va-Voom Vintage blog plus size retro fashion

I'm home from our adventures in Springfield but am totally exhausted. I'm spending this week recouperating from the trip and getting ready for Olivia's birthday party on Saturday. Before life gets ahead of me, I wanted to share another fabulous photo shoot- one of my favorites so far!!

Last Tuesday, I had a shoot in Faust Park with Phantom Photo St Louis. Marshall, the photographer was fantastic to work with. He has a great eye for light and is a wonderful director. I am so madly in love with this set, I'll have to make 2 posts so you can see them all! I'm really loving these antique-inspired fashion shoots lately. I think I will be adding more antique fashion touches to my closet in the future!
I was a little worried about my stockings in these photos. I couldn't find either of my garter belts the day of the shoot so I went with nude fishnets. I didn't know how they would photograph but I think they provided an interesting effect. Must buy a few more pairs next time I'm at the mall!

I also wore a green slip with cream lace details under this dress and finished it off with some of my new deco dress clips.

lipstick- Wet N Wild matte lipstick in Coral-ine, my new favorite shade for daily wear.
dress clips-Eureka MO antique mall
dress-handmade by me using a 40's vintage Vogue pattern
30's jacket-Leo's Old Clothes, Columbia MO
Shoes-thrifted Goodwill Outlet St Louis
white shawl- handmade by me
book-1920's Parties that are different- will be posting scans of this book at a later date!
