I Modeled Vintage for the Independent Fashion Bloggers!

July 29th, 2011

independent fashion bloggers photoshoot

Hello and Happy FRIDAY vintage lovers!!

Yesterday was an exciting day for me because for the first time EVER, I was invited to model vintage fashion for a professional photoshoot!

Some of you may already belong to the Independent Fashion Bloggers [IFB], the go-to online community for fashion & style bloggers to share & learn from one another as well as the blogging experts who run IFB.

Jennine Jacob of The Coveted founded Independent Fashion Bloggers because she saw a need to unify the fashion bloggers who were leaving their marks on the ‘net and in their audience’s style consciousness, but had no “meeting” place of their own to network and collaborate.

Yesterday was an IFB blessing in action, as I was not only a model in the photoshoot to create promotional materials for the organization’s next Evolving Influence blogger’s conference this September, but because I was able to meet & greet with other amazing style-savvy ladies leaving their own marks on the digital fashion world.

Keep reading after the jump for some more behind-the-scenes pics of yesterday’s photoshoot, and to learn more about my modeling cohorts, Jenni of I Spy DIY and Jasmine of Vintage Vandalizm!

Plus, you’ll see the beautiful pieces I borrowed from Manhattan vintage boutiques A Little Wicked & Marmalade Vintage [including a “Miss V” Valentino dress!]
