The Prairie Dress



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  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.
