Bohemian Collection

August 30, 2011. I was waiting for this opportunity to showcase what I can offer in the field of hair styling, wardrobe styling and applying make up. A friend of mine who also happens to be one of the renowned photographer in our city invited me to have a fun photoshoot. At first I hesitated because I don't know if I can reach their expectations. But my will to gain experience convinced me to accept his offer, and I also want to know if I got what it takes, so I agreed to his proposal, he asked me to organize this photoshoot both the location and the theme. I thoroughly conceptualize what theme I am going to apply, and I came up with bohemian style. The reason why I choose to have this theme is because summer is ending and fall takes over. Bohemian can be worn in two ways either you use summer or fall style with a sweet touch of vintage and paired with rough ragged accessories and comes up with a neoteric bohemian or modern bohemian.

  • Dress
You can use any maxi summer dress you have. If it's plain put a flower plated belt 1 shade similar to your dress. If the dress is flower printed, accessorized with colors that is associated with your dress 2 shade darker to emphasize your accessories. If you use stripes, put a braided belt similar to any of this


and do a through the belt loop to set it up. By the way the dress I use here is a maxi summer blue floral print  dress I borrowed from my friend Ate Sheryll. Thanks ate she for lending me your dress. 
  • Shoes
The shoes used by the model is hers. She bought it in people are people. According to her the shoes is 7 inches tall, this helps Paula to boost her height. Any shoes with 5-7 inches will do with a nutty and neutral look to soften the maxi dress, If your dress is dark you need to use a light and neutral shoe, dark and vintage for light maxi dress.
