Glass Beads and Campagne Powder

I did something a little more editorial to showcase two truly awesome designers that I love and respect. James Lillis of Black Milk–which as you guys know I have a mild obsession with–designed the ridiculously amazing Starry Night leggings I am wearing. Theresa Dapra, who I wrote about in my Hearts of Gold post, is an up-and-coming accessory designer (if by up-and-coming you mean that she had already designed for Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Robyn, and SNL!) with some of the most unique pieces I have ever seen! I interviewed her for Joonbug, and she was gracious enough to let me borrow these fun pieces to style for a shoot. It is a little different from my everyday looks, but I also think her pieces (like Black Milk’s) are surprisingly wearable if you know how to style them. Here I went for an edgy look that could translate well to festival wear or a concert. My lovely friend Laura was kind enough to model with me and edit the photos. (And how killer does her pink hair look with Theresa’s Champagne Powder harness?!) I chose to use Theresa’s Champagne Powder harness and her Goat Hair and Glass Bead headpiece. I think the harness could easily be worn over a little black dress to add instant trendiness to a night on the town look. The headpiece is really classy, and would really make a statement with an evening gown at an art event or gallery opening. In these photos we just decided to have some fun and some edge, so I hope you enjoy a little change on content from Cara’s Closet today! I love dressing based on my mode, and sometimes I do get the urge to be a little more alternative. Either way, I still think that Black Milk and Theresa Dapra pieces can be worn by anyone if you experiment when you style! Check out Theresa’s other awesome pieces on her website!

This is probably my favorite shot from the shoot…it makes me think I need this headpiece for my next 1920’s themed party!
