It’s harder than you’d think to find quality garments made in the US, but it seems that more and more business are tuning into what their customers want and investing is great brands that are made in America. Willys Detroit is one of these businesses. With labels like Steven Alan, Filson, and Imogene + Willie, this expertly curated shop offers stylish wardrobes to both men and women. Willys was nice enough to let me run around like a kid in a candy shop in their store to pull pieces for another editorial for Pastorale Magazine, this time for a men’s shoot. This was actually my first time styling for a men’s fashion piece, and I was a little nervous, but with awesome ties and pocket squares by Hillside and bags by Filson, I quickly became more excited about menswear and accessories than nervous. It was so much fun to step out of my comfort zone on this project. Thank you so much to photographer, Erin Marie Miller, model, Ryan Keesecker, Pastorale Magazine, and of course, Willys Detroit!
Although I’m typically much more of a 60s and 70s girl as opposed to a 40s one, I had so much fun on this old Hollywood shoot I styled for Erin Marie Miller with pieces from Modcloth (plus a vintage Dior cami I inherited from Erin herself). Model, Alyse Madej, is the sweetest, the ladies of Salon Blue did a stellar job on hair and makeup, and working with Erin is always a blast. Thanks, ladies!
