There is this great American Vintage on Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks, CA that has amazing clothes. One of the things I really like is that they have an entire section designated just to prairie dresses. Now, you’re probably thinking “what the fuck do I need a prairie dress for?” and the answer is, probably nothing. However, I bought one thinking I might use it for a photo shoot, auditions, or a halloween costume. And now YOU have some ideas of what you could use a prairie dress for. You’re welcome.
I’ve yet to wear it to an audition or as a costume, but I have used it in a few photos shoots already. These photos are from a recent shoot I did with one of my favorite photographers, Cathy Sunu http://www.cathysunu.com. She had rented this amazing vacation home out in Fallbrook, CA and we shot a bunch of different things there (more to come later).
It’s hard to believe that people used to do hard labor in outfits like this. Though, if we’re being honest I can’t imagine doing hard labor in any outfit. I’m too lazy for that shit.
