In search of some strong images to launch the Reckless Resale brand on Friday, August 4th, I scheduled a fashion/style shoot with photographer, Sharon Dickey, last weekend. Modeling for me was a professional model from the Chicago area, Becca Morello, and new, upcoming model, Hannah Bielicki.
We met at New Wave Coffee shop in Logan Square and set out on our scheduled course of action. My original plan of shooting in three different locations was nixed immediately when the photographer discovered an abandoned lot next to our first stop. Powerful street art, graffiti splattered EL bridge, barbed wire topped fences and even the skyline of Chicago became the backdrop for my urban vintage inspired style shoot. Here are a couple of sneak peaks:
Denim is hot this season. Becca's Denim & Co stone washed dark blue denim coat is belted with a wide black leather belt with silver medallion clasp; she wears a matching denim page boy hat. Her functional Guess cross body purse keeps her belongings safe when traveling the city. She stands under the train; perhaps waiting for the next stop, or ducking out of the warm autumn sun. But where ever she's headed, she looks on trend. Model: Becca Morello
The classic Bad Ass black leather jacket. Covered in zippers, this Mossimo black leather jacket is perfect for securing all belongings. Her Guess cross body purse is on trend and its gold metal strap adds to her look that "I'm in control" persona. Her Kill City black and gray animal print top makes this a perfect addition for layering under her jacket. Model: Hannah Bielicki
Photographer, Sharon Dickey, did an amazing job of capturing the desired mood of my urban vintage concept. Her transforming style of photography has the ability to naturally express power through light and color.
