used & abused

this past weekend Jessie and I were lucky enough to take part in a photo shoot for our friend's new vintage clothing store on ebay. the shop, Used & Abused, offers original re-worked vintage clothing. with open backs and higher hem lines as some of their signature alterations, the pieces really trandscend the years working amazingly well today.

so this past saturday, for about eight hours, I tried on the most amazing outfits while Jessie and our friend styled the looks with an endless supply of shoes, socks, jewelery, belts, and hats. basically it was three girls playing dress up, fueled by spanish food and a bit of gin. in other words, it was heaven. here are some of my favorite looks. all of the clothing should be available soon at Used & Abused's ebay store.


Aren't the shoes great too? I'm trying to figure out if I can possibly afford the Tod's booties in the last photo and how I can borrow/walk in Jessie's shoes from the first photo...
