June Dressing: Black-and-White Glamour Three

The third of these, and last for this month:



The black pin-stripe twofer is by Worthington, a thrift shop find in January 2012; the White skirt is by New York & Co., bought at Forman Mills in June 2013; the shoes are Karen Ornament white peep-toe pumps from Payless in March 2015. Other accessories are a white bow and pearls; still bare-legged.



Two more lovely portraits:

June Dressing: Black-and-White Glamour Two

The second in the series of old-time glamour look sets:



The black-and-white animal print dress is from Fashion Bug in May 2010; the shoes are Isaac Mizrahi black mary-janes from Target in November 2007 (the first shoes I bought on my return to dressing). Other accessories are a white bow, black-and-white jewelry, and black belt; once again, I am bare-legged.



Once again, the portraits look great; I'll have to try some of this technique on color portraits in the future.



One more outfit to come (it takes a while to do this much editing); please respond to the survey at the right (details here)!

June Dressing: Black-and-White Glamour One

For the next several months, all my outfits will be black-and-white. Furthermore, I will do the photos in monochrome, with editing to try to emulate the glamour photography of the 1940s and '50s. Here's the first outfit:



The white man-tailored blouse is from Kmart's Basic Editions line in November 2014; the black faux leather skirt is from Target's Xhilaration line in October 2013; the shoes are American Eagle "Javelin Jetson" black oxfords from Payless in December 2013. Other accessories are a white bow, and black-and-white jewelry. Temperatures and humidity are high, so I'm bare-legged.



I'm particularly pleased with how the portraits turned out.
