We were so excited when the super fab and fun Oriana of OKRFoto reached out to us to help style a shoot she was working on over the summer. Even though it was the summer, we wanted to focus on a warm and intimate dinner between friends.
While we all love a good dress, we got to use these beautiful vintage menswear peices instead, which made me want to run out and buy a suit immediately, talk about chic!
The Dawson’s private room felt perfectly toasty with its fabric covered walls and heavy furniture. Asrai Garden made it super juicy with her dark and romantic flowers and veggie centerpieces. I don’t know about you, but I would like to recreate this whole thing in my dining room, invite over some friends and play dress up in gorg jewels and suits. So fun! Enjoy!
