Vintage 1960s Mustang – a forgotten fashion photoshoot

Vintage 1960s Mustang – a forgotten fashion photoshoot

I was going through my old hard drive, and realized that I’d exported these 1960s styled photos of Ashley, but never posted them to this vintage blog! I dressed and styled her in a vintage light green psychedelic floral minidress and hat. Since we were going to shoot other sets, I kept her makeup fairly neutral, but with bright pink lipstick.

This was a fun dress to take pictures of! It was black with lace detail across the front. As you can tell, it fits the perfect 1930s silhouette fashion and shape. It buttoned up the back with fabric covered buttons.

I didn’t bother to re-edit these 1910s style photos. Anita was tiny enough to model this Edwardian lace dress without a corset! I wish we’d had one, just for the look. The details on this lace dress were pretty amazing. I posed her with an interior design book from 1912, which I should scan before I sell.

WWII WAC Uniform on Zizi

Zizi V. totally owned the WWII WAC uniform. She was my third and last model to wear it. My first retro shoot with Anita had all the awkwardness of a first-time (everything), which made for very authentic emotions. With this third shoot in the WAC uniform, I was more confident and explored beyond the studio to the front room and outdoors (where the natural light was perfect). We played more with the set, even in the studio, and the pictures just turned out different. I think that the outdoor and natural light photos turned out looking like 1940s era snapshots and candids.
