Today, a second shoot in the spirit of Halloween from the cemeteries of NYC . This time, I am joined with my beautiful best friend, Maria King. I will be sharing photos of Miss King in costume tomorrow in honor of #TBT (Halloween Edition). Maria has the coolest birthday EVER, November 1st, and we always celebrate her in High Fashion Halloween Style. Happy Birthday to my beautiful bestie; you are the definition of elegance and class.
For today, the setting was the cemetery at St. Pauls Churchyard, directly adjacent to the World Trade Center. I styled us both in lady-like attire; Marias’ look is traditional while my look has more edge.
On the left, Maria wears a vintage Bill Blass Dress. I love how the camel color pops against her caramel skin. Her hat, earrings, and bracelet are vintage; her modern accessories include a Chanel handbag and Gucci sunglasses. On the right, I am wearing a sheer BCBG Max Azria Blouse over a lace bra paired with a Latex Pencil Skirt. (See more on this Latex Find, including where to buy one of your own, in this past post from the streets of London featuring the lovely Gemma.) My accessories include a cinching belt by Kiki de Montparnasse and vintage fascinator. We are both wearing modern shoes with a kitten heel and vintage appeal. Maria wears classic Manolo Blahniks and I am in studded Valentino t-straps. I am not typically a fan of “kitten heels”; the name is a lot sexier than the reality. However, I do make exceptions for exceptional shoes like the ones we are wearing today.
