"Johnny Was Here" June 10, 2014 16:30


As many of you know, I have been in business for 20 years and I have accumulated a lot of things in the basement of the store.  Antiques, metal clothing racks, doilies, silk flowers, vases, holiday decorations galore and mannequins seem to keep taking over even when things seem to be pretty organized.  We had fun with the chaos last week, when the rain stopped our plan to go outside to do the photo shoot.


In this setting, we chose this antique corner cabinet and 2 antique folding screens and hung 2 small chandeliers to give the bohemian feel of the clothing that Johnny Was portrays. Emily is wearing one of their beautiful embroidered ivory tunic dresses and a silk floral scarf as a headscarf.


I was able to find soft willow branches in my menagerie of flowers.


These beautiful gold triple hooped earrings by Mashka were the perfect compliment to this outfit.


Our gorgeous model is Emily Sroda.


Our photographer Brooke, chose all of the settings in the basement.  She is truly amazing at what she does!  Here she took metal clothing racks and layered them around and then laid Emily among them here.  Emily is wearing a Johnny Was peasant embroidered top and embroidered cutout pants.  She is also wearing multi colored chain jewelry by Lee Angel.


Here you see a male and a female mannequin.  We used to carry Men's clothes a few years ago.  We still have the mannequins so...... you never know, we may again.  Emily is wearing a sheer lace top by Johnny Was and white ruffled shorts.



This is what we call ALOT of hangers!  Emily looking incredibly gorgeous in this blue and white striped embroidered blouse by Johnny Was and jeans by David Kahn and turquoise hoop earrings.

I hope that we inspired you!!



A Special THANK YOU to Brooke from Ashley Beige Photography and our beautiful model Emily Sroda for their amazing spontaneity this week!! Magic happens if you just relax and let it be and we had a blast!
