Peeking Into Fall

Photo shoots are exciting, especially ones that involve clothing. On Aug. 19, the ladies of The Penny Rose put on a full production. A hairstylist (Ginger Vaughn), makeup artist (Jodi Laub), model (Desiree Amariei), stylist (Missy Schnaps), professional photographer (Nick Chao), filmmaker (Deva Blaisdell-Anderson) collaborated to create the first annual Santa Cruz Fashion Week photo shoot. It was the biggest production the blog has yet to put on, and I got to follow along capturing all the hustle and bustle that happened behind the scenes.

During the photo shoot day, we went to, in our opinion, some of the the best shops in Santa Cruz and pulled two fall looks from each store. (Behind-the-scenes images are featured above and below.) Starting the week of Monday, Sept. 3, The Penny Rose will feature the looks of one store per day, highlighting all that fall has to offer, right off the racks of our local boutiques. Santa Cruz Fashion Week is almost here.

But until then, here’s a sneak peek.
