Dior Houndstooth Ensemble

I am so in love with this suit!

Dior Houndstooth Ensemble 3

This outfit started with the brown and cream houndstooth fabric. I bought a small amount of it (wish I had bought more!) in Portland, Oregon back on 2007 or 2008. I didn’t have anything in mind, I just liked the fabric.

Then I found this Dior creation in a 1953 L’ Officiel magazine. It was love at first sight.

I finished my huge batch of cream outfits (more pictures coming soon!) the same day a huge batch of backdrops from RaiHing arrived. I had a great time playing around with my new outfits, new camera, and new backdrops. I still have a lot to learn, but I am happy with the results of my first fashion shoot with my new camera.

I love this street backdrop, but Ivy looked too large, the close-up isn’t too bad though.

I “heart” this backdrop. I may have to buy more of the old wall backdrops. They are so versatile.

The hat started out like the one in the original photo, but then it wouldn’t stay tight on her head. I added the bows so I could hide pins behind them and pin the hat into her hair.

I had to guess how the dress looked under the jacket.

Love this outfit, backdrop, and my new camera!
