With every mistake we must surely be learning...

photos by Tom b.

- Fletcher for Lyell silk blouse
- vintage cropped pants from 13Bees
- vintage felt fedora
- vintage shoes from 13Bees
- listening to: The Beatles - The White Album "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (George is my favorite Beatle)

I have to start off by apologizing for the photo heavy post... Tom took so many great photos this day, I couldn't narrow it down to just a few. This was one of my favorite spots to explore in the old lace factory; the auditorium! I imagine they probably made their own lace curtains for the stage. ;) The floors were all buckled from years of neglect which made navigating my way through the space a bit tricky. At some point, the auditorium had been used for storing huge bins of lace and there were still piles and piles of it laying around.

I'd also like to say a huge thank you to Megan from 13Bees Vintage for letting me play dress up in some of her amazing vintage finds. The original plan was for me to wear these adorable britches for photos then send them back to her but I fell in love and snatched them up for myself. Sorry! I just couldn't help myself. Oh, and the shoes too. ;)

PS George is my favorite Beatle too, and that is probably my favorite Beatles song. :)

Every day seems like a good photo day with you. I'm always blown away by the quality of your images and yours is always one I come to when looking for photographic inspiration. This menswear look is great on you with the feminine touch of the shoes. Don't blame you for snapping both up!

I love how both you and Tom are able to collaborate and make such beautiful images. I love how you're able to find beauty and something photo-worthy in everyday and often-forgotten places. Besides your great sense of style and awesome collection of vintage clothing, I really admire your blog for the incredible photography.

residing on the west coast means the absence of factories dating back to the industrial revolution...
this is such an incredible location, and its amazing that so much of it is still intact.

those trousers are lovely!

Wow! I love this shoot so much. I wonder why they needed an auditorium in a lace factory? Oh well, it leaves you with the most spectacular backdrop.

Thanks for all of your comments!

As for the "direction" of the shoots, it's just me and Tom doing everything. :)

Rebecca said...

Amazing photos. I think I'd have been tempted to make off with some of that lace.

I can see why you had a hard time narrowing the photos down--these are gorgeous! :) I love the button detail on the britches too.
