So the secret is out…
Well it’s actually not that big of a secret, but still, it’s worth sharing. Although this editorial may seem a bit extravagant, I’d like to give you a bit of a “behind the scenes” look. To be honest, this shoot was so so much fun. The old winding staircase, the rows and rows of books, and the amazing stained glass mural, in my opinion, made for such regal images. But in all reality, this building apparently used to be an old butcher shop. Ya, classy, right?
But thankfully I did not go take pictures in a butcher shop… that would just be psychotic… it’s actually an old antique store now. Well, its technically multiple shops all connected together and you could seriously get lost down all of the winding and twisting turns. Not to mention, I’ve heard it’s haunted because of all of the creepy antiques that are in there, but that’s beside the point.
Now, as for the gown… which I seriously am in love with and wish it was socially acceptable to wear more often, is my next secret. So… this dress was only $12. Yup, TWELVE DOLLARS. Where on earth did I get this fabulously affordable gown? Well, a dream is a wish your heart makes. And Wish made my dreams come true.
Okay, well maybe it didn’t make my dreams come true, but it definitely made my vision come true for this editorial. Wish is a super inexpensive website, the quality isn’t pristine and shipping kind of takes awhile since its all overseas, but I have never been disappointed with any of the products I have ordered! I seriously recommend giving it a try, but still… keep it on the hush hush. I can’t have everyone knowing all my secrets.
And now for my third and final secret… I totally biffed it down the stairs when Ike wasn’t looking. Hahahahaha. It really hurt and Ike still doesn’t even know that it happened cause I totally acted like I was fine. I’m good… its cool, just have a giant bruise on my shin now. But I’m good ;)
