PHDC: Stars and Garters

One of the first sections I ransack at thrift stores is the oft-overlooked lingerie section. Besides romantic escapism, lacy onesies and bustiers can also function as pretty camisoles when worn with a high-waisted skirt and shrunken blazer. A detailed nightgown can be easily shortened into a sweet mini dress or top.

Partially shot in the historic Hotel San Carlos, this PHDC shoot features vintage lingerie, chunky modern jewelry by Diana Deaver, fine, semi-precious jewelry by Laura Kepner-Adney of Wingflash Designs, and shoes from Marshalls and Ross. You can also spot my backless “Edie” dress by Sapphire Cordial.
