More pictörs

And now the very sensual preggers lingerie shots!

Lovely quilted 1950s/60s house coat with embroidered flowers around the neck and on the very necessary pockets. Maybe for carrying some spare rollers around? Maybe your cigarVery very sweet nightgown and lacey housecoat combo. Not sure of the age of these so need to do some lingerie research as it can be a bit tricky.

Another very necessary piece of clothing in baby blue this time. Always makes me think of Cybil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers. You know the episode where she has an ingrown toenail and I'm pretty sure there's a moose head?

Stop sneaking gang signs into the photos!

Yesterday we did the first quick shoot in Sweden to start getting images together for promotion, and for the website. I also enjoy documenting as much of the clothes as possible and will keep a gallery updated on the website as much as I can.

So the lovely model is my little sister, who is almost 8 months pregnant with her second baby. The idea is that eventually we'll have done lots and lots of shoots with a great variety of women and of models.
I found lots of clothes which would fit her, and we chose a few outfits which went with the feel of the shoot. It was really nice to see how many garments fit her, especially with some of the lingerie which was so cute (and a little wrong with her pornstar posing and gang signs, which she brought out as soon as I turned my back to for a moment, but I edited that out so we won't get sued). More pictures coming soon!

Cotton 1960s babydoll dress with white button detail. 1980s earring with massive faux jewels - not so subtle but I love it. Ain't she the cutest?

1970s dress with huge sleeves and huge skirt and pretty much like a moomoo tent thing but with a lovely neckline and pullstrings which make an empire line.

1960s minidress in a crazy colourful print and with pocket detailing. Turquoise earring from the 1970s.

That's all folks! (for now)

Unfortunately moving countries has left me with a shortage of model friends (not that there are no pretty people in Stockholm, I just don't know anyone here since I've been abroad for 15 years), so I must get working on getting the most photogenic people I know in England to come and visit first to get some shoots done.

We're also discussing getting a nice variety of women together to show how the brand can have appeal to a wider audience (I'm very open minded and PC - they can be different sizes and ethnicities and ages and everything. As long as they're hot).
Tonight the boyfriend arrives after two months of working in England, and that means we can start doing photoshoots again, which I'm very excited about! We're going to do a series of short shoots hopefully using a great variety of models, like my pregnant little sister, a couple of her friends maybe, a few of Mama Kellermans friends and so on.

In the meantime, Mama Kellerman has totally mastered eBay and is acquiring gorgeous vintage quickly. We're still working on getting her to appreciate things which aren't exactly in her style, but I think a nicely styled shoot should do the trick.

We're also halfway to getting a shop in SoFo, and meeting with the landlady on Friday, hoping to get everything signed and done then. Keep your fingers crossed for that one - I don't think I fully comprehend all the technicalities so will be on time and look smart and hope that that will be enough.

Shiny, shiny!

Mum ordered a job lot of jewellery which arrived today. It's lurvely. I only had time to take a picture of my favourite piece, which is this very sweet crystal necklace. I love these necklaces, they're so simple but the good ones catch the light in the most amazing way:

AND as a bonus, if you look closely (although I really wouldn't recommend it) you can see that I haven't been complaining and not posting for nothing - I have big ole blisters to prove how hard I've been working.

Lots and lots happening at the moment. We'll know about the venue we want this week, and are also waiting for some rather exciting eBay finds to arrive. Let's get this shop rolling, y'all.
