Recently the lovely Miss Milla Cherry happened to be visiting my town so we decided to meet up and shoot some photos at the beautiful Botanical Gardens.
Fortunately, the rain we’d been warned about by the weatherman never eventuated, but the day was rather hot and very sunny. We met up mid-afternoon, armed with a few props, and began deciding what sort of scenes we wanted to put together. Dressed in our first outfits, we began by shooting in the “rainforest” area beneath the shade of trees, and under the plant-covered archway before putting together a picnic scene on the nearby grass.
For these scenes, I wore my Pinup Girl Clothing Vamp top in tiger print, paired with my old faithful Collectif skirt, an Erstwilder necklace, Luxulite brooch and Your One Stop Pinup Shop hair flower. Miss Milla Cherry wore a custom made summer playsuit and Miss L Fire sandals.
Happy with what we’d done so far, we dashed back to my place to change into our second outfits, then returned to the Botanical Gardens to take more photos!
This time I wore the beautiful Enchanting Bird print in Azure from Lady Vintage London, which I was lucky enough to be gifted by Lady Vintage early this year. I paired in with a Your One Stop Pinup Shop hair flower and necklace, vintage gloves and Homy Ped shoes. I believe Miss Milla Cherry’s dress was from Retrospec’d. Using my old vintage-style suitcase as a prop, we used the steam train station platform as a backdrop for some photos, carefully working around the waiting passengers as we did so!
