I spotted a few more Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage wardrobe items on the CBS TV series "Vegas" in last week's episode, Past Lives. There was a lovely pair of white gloves with lace and seed pearls that was worn by a bride-to-be whose groom was arrested. Then there was a camel colored handbag carried by a meek casino housekeeping employee who turns out to be more dangerous than she looks. Let's hope the show is renewed for next season (and that the costume designer will continue to shop at Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage!)
One of my favorite TV shows is "Once Upon A Time." Eduardo Castro is the creative genius behind the fabulous costumes. He recently won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Costume Designers Guild. Definitely deserved!! Here are a few outfits from the show. There are so many favorites to choose from, I couldn't post them all. And I couldn't find photos of some of the ones I've liked the best.
Note the green screen!
I recently found this awesome bridesmaid dress from the 1980's that has somewhat of a fairy tale look to it, don't you think? It is for sale in my online vintage boutique, Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage.
It's always exciting to see items from your boutique used on a tv show, especially when they are worn by a main character. The costume designer for the CBS series "Vegas" has purchased a number of vintage items from my shop. This past week, one of my 60's ties was worn by Michael Chiklis' character (Vincent Savino) in the opening scene of the episode "Little Fish." You can view it at: http://www.cbs.com/shows/vegas/video/
Here are a few screencaps and photos of the tie.
I fell in love with this fabulous tie when I found it and just couldn't wait to get it listed in the shop. I thought to myself, "This would be perfect for Vincent Savino!" What are the chances he would actually end up wearing it?
OK, so how come almost every photo taken of me working, shows me from the backside...it's not my best feature! Here's some examples of what I mean.
Over the Shoulder Shot
Side View...That's Better!!
Finally!!! I REALLY don't like having my photo taken, but thanks Melanie!
A FUNNY STORY - One day while shooting, I asked the photographer for time to fix the model's dress. I stepped onto the set and the photographer immediately proceeded to shoot again. When I asked why, he said the photos were for his wife...to prove he wasn't all alone with the gorgeous model!
60's fashion is today's fashion. Banana Republic's recent Mad Men Collection is proof of that. Here are some items from my online vintage clothing boutique, Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage and some photos of similar items shown on "Mad Men" and "Glee" (the last photo). You can find these and other 60's items in my shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/hipfashionstylist
I recently participated in an event for BOCI - Share (Business Over Coffee International). The host was Carolyn Bendall and the guests were Linn Sitler (Commissioner for the Memphis and Shelby County Film Commission), J. Lazarus Hawk (independent film producer), and myself, Lisa Byrd Thomas (costume designer/vintage seller). The topic of discussion was about how film affects the local economy. It was a fun interview with lots of great stories and plenty of interesting information. My part of the 2 hour program runs about 20 minutes long and begins at 40:00 minutes into the show. Click the video below and enjoy the entire program or fast forward to my part. Also check out this great article on the event (link below) by Cheryl Hurley for BOCI.
60's fashion is alive and well on the new CBS tv series "Vegas." The costume designer for the series, Kathleen Detoro, does a magnificent job with the wardrobe. I am excited to say that she has purchased a variety of 60's items from my online vintage clothing boutique, Hip Fashion Stylist Vintage. Below are photos of one of my purses used in the episode "From This Day Forward" and some screencaps. (Sorry the images aren't better. The purse was definitely not the focus of the episode.) I'll post some of my favorite outfits from the series soon.
