The one with the graveyard is really cool! I like all the pins and the hello kitty bandaid!
i love their skirts!!! amazing photo album<3
I love these pictures! Makes me want to hang out with friends.
super cool! summer in new york city. I dig it. also I spy the calvary cemetery (pretty certain that’s the one anyhow)
not related, but I’m going to a model casting today, what should i wear??? Can we have a rookie forum? xoxo
Either wear basics like jeans and a tee and some heels/boots, or just wear what you feel comfortable in! You shouldn’t have to worry about making your own fashion statement – they’re gonna be choosing the clothes you wear on-the-job!
something that makes you feel great, because then you’ll portray that.
exactly. well said.
I love all of the little pins and accessories. 5 and 19 are my favorites.
wow. just wow.
Totally swooning right now. I just want to live in these photos!
Love those cheerleader pleat skirts! And fifteen is lovely.
I would love to own that yellow skirt…
And I have a sunflower pin like the one in #4 that I got in a thrift store some time ago :)
LOVE pics 10-13! Just amazing, great job ladies. :)
I love 3, 10, 11, 15 and 16 so basically all of them. This shoot is radi-cool.
I am utterly obsessed with the coin bracelet! It is so neat! Any ideas of where I might be able to find one similar to it?
i love these picture so much!! loving the vibe and the clothes and everything
Picture no. 2 <3 How do I copy her hair?
I love the outfits, and the usage of pins throughout :)
im obsessed. i dont know how but this photoshoot totally captures my mood and thoughts right now
I have fallen IN LOVE with their sunglasses!.. I feel I now need to get some before school starts again and the sun is well and truly gone! :(
Such luxurious pins, indeed!!! The main thing going through my head while flipping through these photos was how much I wish I lived in New York City in the 70s. These girls remind me a lot of the girls in that Shia Labeouf film, ‘A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints’. Check out dat retro urban style inspiration!!
One of my favorite style series.
