Vintage Accessories!

I often shoot for a gorgeous little vintage shop in Greystones called Linen and Ware...Vintage Too.

 Sandra's shop offers everything a vintage loving girl or guy would die for! 

There are gorgeous brooches, amazing one of a kind pieces of jewellery, men's cufflinks and tie pins and stunning dresses for every different occasion. Recently I did some product shots for the shop and it was so hard to choose my favourites but here it goes!

Men's clip on bow tie.
One of my best friends wore a bow tie and braces to my birthday in August and I just thought it looked brilliant! I think it takes a certain style of guy to pull that sort of look off but when it's done right it can look great. This one has a clip either side so it's easy enough to put on and take off without the knowledge of "bow-tie-putting-on-ing"!



Red and white beaded necklace.
I loved this beaded necklace and I think it's because it reminds me of the friendship bracelets my friends and I used to buy on family holidays when were younger.
The red and white parts are twisted around each other and I think it would look great with either a simple dress or to accessorise a shirt and jeans combo.


Silver, Pearl and Diamante Necklace.
I have no other reason to love this necklace other than the fact it's absolutely stunning. It's just really striking! It would be perfect for a bride, a formal dinner... or even just to stare at yourself in the mirror for a while.


Peacock Brooch.
I just love everything peacock. I have done since I was in 5th class and a girl came in to school with a peacock feather for the Nature Table, so this brooch really stood out of the whole bunch that I had my hands on that day! The diamante used in this brooch are really shiny and they aren't dull or scratched like some brooches you may find in vintage shops. I think it would be perfect pinned to a scarf through winter to add a lil bit of sparkle.

If you want anymore info on Linen and Ware...Vintage Too, you can find Sandra on Facebook or drop in to the shop in Greystones, Co. Wicklow for a peak at everything in the cabinets. I hate to use the C word but... Christmas is on the way and there are some seriously good gift ideas floating around in there!! 

Behind the scenes : Country Heritage

I recently shot with stylist Eimear O'Reilly from Suppose I Should Blog with a "Country Heritage" theme in mind.
We shot in a few locations around Greystones with our model for the day Suzi Coombs who is signed with Fraser Models and Actors.
Absolutely loved the clothes that Eimear pulled for the shoot. I fell in love with a Ted Baker pleated maxi skirt that she teamed with a purple blouse and a waist coat.
The week that was in it, we didn't think the weather would be great but I ended up sunburned and poor Suzi was boiling in all the heavy knit Autumn/Winter clothes.

I threw together a little behind the scenes video and took some sneaky shots of the girls at work:
