As soon as I purchased the vintage 1980s Mary McFadden pants from one of my fave Houston vintage shops- Eado Vintage, I knew they had to be photographed. I met up with one of my photographer friends -Sofia (definitely check her out on instagram- @dydesigner) at posh River Oaks District– Houston’s newest upscale open-air shopping mecca and we “photo’d” away!

Mary McFadden was known for her signature pleating (which sort of mimics the Fortuny pleating) and Grecian-inspired gowns. Her pieces are highly sought-after by vintage collectors. So it was no surprise that the wide-legged pants have a great fit and flow beautifully. For the shoot, I wanted to let the pants make the statement, so I went minimal on accessories and opted for a vintage white cropped blouse (even though the blouse and tooled clutch have their own unique characteristics as well). The RODistrict was the perfect backdrop for the shoot that day, as it wasn’t too crowded, being a Sunday and later in the day and all.

Mopeds and Wanderlust

Yesterday was the inaugural Villa Wanderlust event in Midtown (Houston). It was of course humid and in the 90s. I decided to finally wear my vintage floral halter jumpsuit from Top Vintage LLC. Despite it being polyester, which is known to be HELL in the heat, was actually fine (although maybe it was because this was a skin-bearing halter…). I also paired it with my white clutch from California-based Leoluca handbags and vintage, thrifted burnt brown woven slingback sandals. My blogger pal Shasie and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and the overall outside decor of the event’s venue- Wired International and were able to get some photos with clever backdrops, including a vintage moped!

The #BiscuitPaintWall is located in the trendy Montrose neighborhood of Houston. The wall is actually a part of the Biscuit Home retail store and has been drawing photography enthusiasts for months now. I had the opportunity to visit the popular photo shoot spot with one of my favorite local photographers- Brock Lawson, who indeed created some photo magic! I wanted to show the versatility of a vintage petticoat, so I took a white petticoat and thought that the Biscuit Wall’s unique and colorful theme would make for a perfect backdrop. All it took was a little fabric manipulation and some safety pins to turn the simple petticoat into an avant-garde dress. I also added a minimal baseball cap shaper that I thrifted awhile back, as a complementary accessory to the dress. The heels are H by Halston for Bakers.
