A '20s Teaser

You know when you've been putting something off for months, for some mysterious reason, and finally, for some other mysterious reason you get the motivation to tackle that something? Well, that happened to me yesterday. I have been procrastinating photographing a big rack of 1920s dresses, why I don't know; most likely the same reason I was putting off shooting the wedding dresses I recently shot; both take a lot of time, attention and PATIENCE. You can't speed through a vintage wedding dress or 1920s dress photo shoot, you have to move slowly & handle the dresses with much care. Me being a bit of a spaz and always rushing around, I didn't feel like making myself slow down long enough to shoot these beauties. Perhaps it was the relief of the election being over, the fact that I've switched from tea to coffee or the realization that the hours of sunlight will be dwindling fast but yesterday I finished off the wedding dresses AND photographed the rack of 1920s dresses. 

With the The Great Gatsby and the holidays around the corner I hope to slowly start stocking the shop with some of these truly lovely jazz age treasures. Now I just have to decide which dresses to add first...decisions, decisions...

Gorgeous!! Also, Gatsby release has been moved to next year, but all these dresses will definitely help us bridge the gap until then!

Amazing dresses! I know exactly what you mean about slowing down. I feel the same way on a daily basis and this is why I procrastinate photographing so many things. They just hang there unless they're easy to photo. I'm sure you felt good after you finished taking the pics!
