Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

Tag Archives: Elsie Riley

The recent Elsie Riley shoot, which took place at the oh-so-quirky warren that is Goldbrick House was so much fun. Our models, Laya and Rhea were just fab and as usual Elena, the snapper, turned it out!

The inspiration was a dark and glamourous Alice  in Wonderland vibe, so I made sure the hair and make-up was girly vintage glam.

Here are a few pics from the day – which will be appearing on Elsie Riley’s site soon. Enjoy!

Elsie Riley in Venue!

Well, our little shoot has been making the headlines – this time in Venue magazine. It’s great to see the images in print even though our other feature has not yet been published – Elsie Riley’s owner, Katie was so pleased with the pix that she is using then as her own promotional images now – praise indeed!

Here are a few sneaky pix from last weekend’s photoshoot at Elsie Riley. We sweltered in the heat down in the basement and I feared the make-up I’d so carefully applied was going to melt off, but the models, Katrina and Rhea were just brilliant, helped of course by the excellent photographer of Elena Goodrum. I hope you enjoy them!
