Style File – Coney Island

20th July 2013

A while back, I had the pleasure of styling my beautiful bestie Dené (a gorgeous model who takes the most stunning pictures) in a coney island inspired photoshoot by Liquid Shutter. The shoot was inspired by one of my favorite music videos Cool by Gwen Stefani in combination with a fabulous Coney Island Engagement photo shoot that is beyond adorable! (Check it out at Ruffled). Anyways, check out Dené and her partner Alex


The first look shown above is flirty and effortless. A yellow bikini top toped with a cap sleeve H&M shoulder wrap all paired with a flowy white skirt, simple black peep toe Louboutins and a wrap leather belt from the Limited to add contrast and edge. I dressed Alex in a long sleeve yellow shirt with white cotton pants to play off of Dené’s ‘the fabulous girl next door look.


I love this second look, Dené looks like some kind of Summer Cremesicle Dream Girl! She’s wearing my favorite  orange Forever21 summer dress (perfect for this shoot because the style gives a vintage feel but the length and color keeps it current and fresh) paired with brown lace up Vince Camuto wedge booties that to me scream “I’m that fashionable, functional, fabulous girl you wish was one of the boys”. I offset the brightness of Dene’s dress by putting Alex in a simple blue striped tee and cotton white pants, giving him a clean, crisp sort of vibe.

Although it is somewhat hidden in the picture, this next look was a jean romper from Forever with a fabulously big red bow belt from H&M while Alex wore a simple white cotton button down and jeans.
The final look was Alex in a simple white tee and cuffed Jeans for that retro feel, who fed Dene some cotton candy. Meanwhile Dené strutted in peep toe Louboutins flowy satin Forever21 shorts, synched with a wide teal woven belt from Nordstrom and a vintage polkadot tie half top. This is the kind of outfit made for a girl with legs, because most people would drown in these shorts, but on Dené they are a glossy, polished touch to a Summer Bombshell sort of ensemble.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have legs that go on for days like Dene, I’m jealous!
