An Indie Biz: Pierogi Picnic Lookbook

Pierogi Picnic: Handmade eco-friendly feminine fashions

It’s been almost two months since we began the journey of creating the first-ever Pierogi Picnic lookbook – and I am so so so very excited to report that all the hard work has paid off! And with this being the month we celebrate my business’s five year anniversary – it seems fitting to reveal this beautiful creation during this celebratory time.

So without further ado – may I present to you – the virtual version of the 2013-2014 Pierogi Picnic Lookbook!

Special heartfelt thanks go out to the beautiful people who helped make this project a reality. This includes models Allysa, Diane Maxine, Chella, Charlene, David, Nahrain, and Osafta. The styling of the shoot would not be possible without the help of Shannon and Percis.

And, of course, all hats are off to the visually captivating images which were created by Jill Hornok, of Pala Photography.

Thank you all for putting your all into this project on my behalf! I am eternally grateful!!!

Pierogi Picnic 2013 Lookbook

Styling: Mustard Seed Miracles

So it seems pretty obvious that I have developed a recent obsession with the color yellow. Within the past 2 months I have purchased, made, featured, or photographed at least 20 different things in the hue’s range.

With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that in this “Styling” the main attraction is a warm fuzzy mustard cardigan. This cozy sweater was my favorite find of autumn – discovered while doing a fabric run at a local thrift shop – the saturated color and high quality tailoring forced me to pop it in my cart. Combined with the ever-modern stripes of an old school Old Navy dress, grey leggings, sequined gold peter pan collar necklace, and black vintage boots, this is one of those ensembles I can see myself wearing for years to come!

Styling: Wanderlustings Lust

I absolutely adore Caitlin Peters of Wanderlustings! Not only is she my craft fair collaborator extraordinaire – she’s also the brains behind the exceptionally beautiful line of jewelry and the blog that goes with it. Imagine my delight when one of her recent posts featured my “No Sweat” upcycled sweater! I love the way Caitlin layers the piece with a delicate white lace undershirt and pencil skirt. The cowboy boots are a nice touch too! It makes the top perfect for lounging and wearing to the office.
