Everyone identifies with a certain clothing store. These types of stores have branded themselves SO well that it’s almost as if the clothes, the aesthetic, and the store displays / windows are speaking to each of their customers.
What if you’re a bride who identifies with two very distinct looks at the same time and you want them both in your wedding? Thus the inspiration for this funky cool shoot from Milou + Olin Photography and Scarlett & Grace that showcases two my favorites: Anthropologie and J.Crew!
From Caroline of Milou + Olin – “We both love Anthropologie and J. Crew. One part of me loves the femininity and freedom of Anthropologie with its romantic and bohemian feeling while the other part of me also loves the fun, preppy, modern styling of J.Crew. It’s a little bit of ying and yang. So we thought – what about combing the two together?
We tried to pull the key elements of each style – stripes and bling from J.Crew and vintage florals from Anthropologie. Admittedly, it was a tough concept at first, but we had so much fun doing it! I thought that Erin’s floral styling was wonderful: she used bright J.Crew colors and styled them in a free-flowing ‘Anthropologie’ way!”
Pulling from the warm bohemian look of Anthropologie and the clean lines of J. Crew, Caroline of Milou + Olin brought in a modern edge with black and white striped linens, ghost chairs, black utensils, and tumblers from her own collection.
Erin of Scarlett & Grace layered on the eclectic bright mix of flowers, mix n’ match vessels, some vintage Culver highballs, her grandmother’s floral china and finished it off with a vintage floral rug.
What an awesome hybrid these two looks create!
