February marks the kickoff of to party and prom season and we couldn’t help, but to play with the personality of a girl who embodies the Twelfth Element spirit. She’s a Maverick, and independent-minded person who naturally resists conformity, because she listens to her very unique spirit. However, she graceful and beautiful like a swan, so she makes friends easily and is a loyal friend herself. So what does she wear to her party or prom? Something that has the flexibility to express her own personal style, but still suits the occasion.
With subtle hints of sparkly glam and a touch of whimsy in her hair, she embraces her own style. Simply classic, a little edge, and always with a care-free flare. A black and white swan came to mind as we explored black tulle for the skirt. If you have never seen one, the black and white swan has a white body and black head and neck. Although, the color idea is reversed here with the white crop top, it suited our girl perfectly to play up the refined look with a little edge. Carson, our model not only brought the right attitude, but also the most killer pair of studded heeled shoes.
Here is a snip it of the inspiration board for the shoot. We enlisted the help of style direction for our original vision by Lisa Tello of Refined Mode, Jax Roberson for the edgy makeup, and Sierra Westre for the messy, yet chic up do. The skirt is from Ella Moss and was paired with a three-quarter sleeve white crop top. Accessories were from Charming Charlie. The result was a real girl who is chic, yet adventurous, a do-er who knows how to have fun, and above all, isn’t afraid to do something different.
How will you stand out this party and prom season? And, as always, what’s YOUR story?
