Gypset Dreams

We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick for the places we have never been.

Our latest Spring photo shoot blends the carefree lifestyle of a gypsy with the finesse of the every girl-on the go. It embodies our wanderlust spirit and bohemian daydreams with denim, florals, frilly shapes and just the right touch of whimsy.

We shot our lookbook in Red Oak, Texas nestled in a wood clearing backed by dogwood trees and walls of bamboo. Our Johnny Was silk scarf wall was our largest project for the day and our favorite scene. We started with a box of 20-30 scarves and went through them one by one to select the perfect colors and prints to pair with the mood of each look. [Johnny Was' designs never fail to leave us with good vibes and new feelings of creativity with their vintage inspired embroideries and culturally influenced prints. It's a brand for any age and any lifestyle which makes it particularly fun to work with. The list of ways to wear their signature scarf is endless. Use them for head wraps, vests, belts, even bag adornments. Their current Spring campaign even uses them as flags. Pause for swoons.] Our group sat down picnic style and carefully tied each corner of silk together, admiring each one, enjoying the sunshine and listening to Team. A low hanging branch of a pecan tree made our frame and as a team, in spite of the gusty Texas wind, we tied up the 16 scarves for our wall. We were starry eyed and awestruck at the beauty we created with just a simple scarf wall in the woods. It parachuted in wind behind our models, adding more depth and spirit to our creation.
