Brooke drove by this banana plantation countless times. Every time, I mean every time she kept saying I WANT TO TAKE A PHOTOSHOOT THERE! It really is awesome, huge leaves majestic trees. It was pretty amazing. Had to be about six months later before we actually get our things together and took the photoshoot.
But we’re super happy we waited because we ended up making the MOST amazing top. We had a super cute piece of scrap fabric and voila…after a few mix ups (I ran out of fabric for the original design like three times), I finally reached to Plan C-which came out perfect!
My absolute favorite part is the open back; which was actually a mistake. When I originally made it, as mentioned, I didn’t have enough fabric, so it ended up much too small and so in an effort to save it, I decided to make it open back with feminine tie closure.
Luckily since we were outside of a Kibbutz (traditionally a farming community) right next to the banana plantation there was also a beautiful field of corn. I don’t know if anyone else ever dreamt of running through a field of corn? But it was also something I wanted to do. It was the perfect opportunity! We matched a vintage gingham full skirted dress, hoping it would blow in the wind (it did) and took some very artistic photos among the stalks of unripe corn.
This adorable hat (vintage from the 80s) was given to us by a friend’s mom. She saw all the pictures we take and she really wanted her hat to be in one of our pictures! It was the perfect addition! Perfect finishing touch!
One of my dream photos! Skirt blowing in the wind, running through a field of corn! I felt like Mary Poppins!
And always have to end with a sister shot! What do you think of the handmade blouse and these photoshoots? Let us know in the comments.
Sending love and happiness, Danielle and Brooke, Colorful Sisters
