Here is another set of photographs that were taken during a shoot for my 2015 Pin Up calendar. I am wearing a cute, plaid nightgown by Victoria's Secret. I picked up this babydoll while on Vacation in Las Vegas.
I like how this outfit has a retro, nautical, and patriotic feel to it. The crop top by is very light and comfortable for the summer heat. And I just love the skater-style skirt. I'm hoping to find one like this in red one day, too.
My little anchor earrings from Ebay match perfectly with the red and blue.
Here are a few shots from my 2015 Pin Up calendar. I included only one of these shots in the calendar, but here are several others I thought would be nice to post. I am wearing a really pretty nightgown in a salmon-pink color from Victoria's Secret.
For the background, I used these beautiful curtains by Xhileration. This style of print is a favorite of mine.
I took a ton of pictures of the beautiful items for sale at the Olvera Street Plaza in Los Angeles. For someone like me that loves color, this place is a fantastic shopping experience. There were so many interesting and pretty things to see! On this day, I was there just to photograph, but I intend to go back and make a day of just shopping. There's so many things I'd like to buy!
Olvera Steet is a California State Historic Landmark. It is located in Downtown Los Angeles, basically right across the street from Union Station, so if you are taking public transportation, it's very easy to get to. In fact, that's probably the best way to see the area, since in DTLA, it can be a nightmare to find parking.
If you love Mexican culture, there is something for everyone here. For shopping, there are beautiful dresses, accessories, candies, and many home decor items. There are also several Mexican restaurants. If you are traveling to Los Angeles, this is a place I would suggest you see. You can eat some great food and pick up a few souvenirs while you're there.
I bought this dress by Aviva at Fallas Paredes. The fabric is soft, and feels wonderful. The wrap-style bodice is a nice touch to the cut of the dress. This would be a great dress for a dinner date, or similar event. On this occasion, I wore it for a day of shopping around town.
My necklace was a gift from my grandmother, and I think it goes perfectly with the colors of my dress.
