Hello! I recently teamed up with Dee and Sarah of Live Among Chic for a little Richmond fashion blogger collaboration. Like myself, Dee and Sarah use their blog as an outlet to express their adoration for fashion through carefully thought-out style pieces and well prepared outfit photoshoots. Brittany Rose Photography documented our recent collaboration (hopefully only one of many in the future!)

For this collaboration, we wanted to create soft, vintage-inspired looks, employing strong use of feminine color and vintage-inspired detail. We created cohesion in our looks through our use of the color pink, statement coats and relatively light, neutral color palette. 

I gifted both Dee and Sarah one item from my etsy shop, RaddayVintage, for the blog collaboration. Dee picked out a pretty vintage camisole and Sarah selected a chic metallic layering piece. I love how they both styled the pieces and I can't get over how much I adore Sarah's trendy booties and Dee's statement coat- talk about fab! 

For my look, I styled a little gray wrap dress with a gorgeous cream-colored jacket; I love the vintage appeal that the jacket adds to the look. I also slipped on a pair of gray thigh-high socks and bold paisley platform heels which added to the nostalgic vintage mood of the look even further. I accessorized with several pieces of simple yet pretty golden jewelry, bold sunglasses and a chic pink purse.

Hello! Recently, I teamed up with local Richmond photographer, Rachel Dwyer, to photograph one of the newest additions to my wardrobe: this gorgeous burgundy dress. When I spied the luxe texture, rich color and trendy off-the-shoulder silhouette of this dress on SheIn, I instantly fell in love with it. This is their "Burgundy Ruffle Off the Shoulder Velvet Bodycon" dress and it retails for $12 here.

For this look, I wanted to emphasize the opulence of the velvet texture of the dress so I styled it with a rich pair of golden thigh high boots and lined my eyelashes with sparkling rhinestones. I accessorized with several vintage rings, a sweet pair of stud earrings and a couple classic personalized necklaces.

I also styled a dreamy, cream-colored vintage shawl and vintage leopard print faux fur jacket with the dress for several photos. I switched among sunglasses throughout the shoot, sticking to a few of my favorite new pairs including a pair of yellow aviators, tortoiseshell shades and mod sixties sunnies.
