Hello! A couple weekends ago, I had the pleasure of collaborating with several lovely Richmond ladies on a ShopGlister photoshoot. ShopGlister, a Richmond-based jewelry retailer, ranks high on my list of favorite local brands. A few months ago, shop owner and designer, Whitney, sent me one of her designs to showcase on my blog and boy did I (and still do!) love that necklace. Recently, I've had my eye on a few of her newer, totally swoon-worthy designs; she's been playing around color, texture and shape in a very intriguing way that I can't help but love. Her experimentation with clay and tassels has created an entirely unique, beautiful line of jewelry.
I decided to stop just admiring her designs from afar (guys, her Instagram is like perfection) and reached out to set up a photoshoot. Whitney was on board right away and I got busy setting up a mood board and selecting models. I got lucky with finding the two perfect models to represent Whitney's brand- Elissa Rumford and Magan Shively. Like myself, Elissa played the role of photographer as well as model for this shoot. You can check out more of their work and aesthetics on their Instagrams @elissarummy and @magan_shively.
For the shoot, I selected a very modern, clean, minimalistic theme to complement Whitney's designs. We stuck to a lot of neutral colors, bold silhouettes and interesting textures. As this was a winter lookbook of sorts, I wanted to focus on outerwear as well; several beautiful pieces of outerwear including a faux fur pink jacket and black cape jacket came into play for the shoot.
Overall, I'm over the moon happy with how the photos turned out from the shoot. As a thank-you gift, Whitney gifted Elissa, Magan and I with a ShopGlister design of our choice and I've been wearing mine nonstop. And right now, Whitney is offering 30% off and free shipping in her shop with code SHOPSMALL. But be quick- this code expires when Cyber Monday ends. And guys, you're definitely going to want to take advantage of that offer- I already ordered a pair of her tassel earrings for myself. Shop her selections here.
