There's No Place Like Home—Summer Fashion

Photos by Nick Chao (click on images to visit gallery).

Welcome to The Penny Rose's Summer 2013 Fashion Project, five days of beautiful photography, clothing and jewelry inspired by the classic movie, "The Wizard of Oz." This week, we imagine Dorothy as a modern woman on a vacation in a far off land. The scene opens with our heroine preparing for her journey. She's still home on the farm but is joined by two fellows who have a resemblance to the Tin Man and the Scarecrow. 

You can take a note from Dorothy's fashion book by ditching the typical denim summer shorts for something unexpected. Large checks give a nod to country origins while a romantic blouse and cropped blazer keep you modern. Booties and baubles from Blank Verse Jewelry scream "look at me" for all the right reasons.
