Smoke and Mirrors: LPM Oct 2012 Lookbook


 All clothing from La Petite Marmoset 

I'm a huge pansy. HUGE. I haven't seen a horror movie in 6 years, and every time an ad for Paranormal activity comes on Hulu I hit mute and close my eyes (lalala not listeninggg)

Sooo, when Lise suggested several weeks ago that we do a Dia de los Muertos/seance themed lookbook, I got so scared planning out the details that the sound of the wind slamming a door upstairs sent us scrambling into the hall with a chef's knife. I swear we heard footsteps!  Anyway, once Lise calmed me down we gained the courage to re-enter into the showroom, Lise crept upstairs (knife in hand) and karate kicked the doors open to investigate... and of course found nothing. We broke into adrenaline-fueled laughter.

It's precisely these types of pee-your-pants, scare yourself silly moments that we wanted to show in this lookbook.  From W Salon's oxblood lips and crown braids, to Ashley and Carlis' great styling mix, to Lise's original artwork, to Caroline's creative videography and the models tip-toeing the line between spooky and sexy... everything came together beautifully. But still kind of scary. But also pretty. And scary. But still fun. And now I am afraid to sleep in the room where we shot the seance. You get the idea ;)
