Å la mode can mean served with ice cream but also means “In Style” or “Fashionable”. The two pieces I was given for this challenge are very different but also very bold. The necklace and earring set compliments each other but also is the “item” that everyone would talk about after an elegant party or event. One thing that I love about bold accessories is wearing it with something simple to really bring out the detail as well as match the makeup to really emphasize the colors. I can see others and even myself wearing these accessories to really be a “head turner” and a fashionista at a big event. For the second half of the pictures I decided to change my hairstyle to a turban, to showcase the versatility of wearing the jewelry with a different style. By showing that even if you wear a scarf, hat, or any other accessory, the jewelry can and WILL speak for itself and be just as striking. For me personally, I love being able to wear jewelry with not just one look and by shooting these two looks I wanted to advertise that the jewelry can be worn with multiple styles whether it is a twist out braid out, up do, or scarf.
The hat was my favorite accessory especially because it is so hard be cute and warm in Vermont with extremely cold weather. In Vermont, cute and stylish hats rage from animal prints, to pom poms, to hats with long sides to act as mittens. Cute hats in Vermont are the first thing a person notices in the cold weather. For this look, I decided to wear something casual, warm, and an outfit I would naturally pair with the hat. When I wear a hat I love to make sure it matches and really accentuates my outfit but allows the hat to still draw all the attention. I loved that this hat was cute but very stylish for cold weather and as I continued with the shoot I could imagine myself running to class waving, smiling, and even stopping to chat to my friends along the way!
I believe that advertising has to draw the viewer in by not only seeing it on the model but by the customers being able to visualize it on themselves, when they could wear the accessory, as well as knowing that they could wear it with multiple looks. For the first look I wanted to emphasize versatility in styles with the matching jewelry set, while the second look I wanted to show that you can be warm while also being quite chic!
