Being Effy + Wearable lingerie

As I said in my last post Effy doesn't dress to please others. She is the typical grunge girl and I love her for that. Recreating her style was challenging since I usually try to be more polished, but it was exciting and a little wild for me to try her looks. I did, however, find a designer in the May issue of Nylon magazine who makes lingerie-type tops inspired by the '30s and '40s. The brand is called Overton Monroe and their intention was to make "wearable lingerie as a textural layering piece." Check out their site and I will show how I layer vintage lingerie in an upcoming post.

Note: this shoot was purely done to test "Effy-ish" looks. The cigarette used in some of the photos is purely for character purposes. I DO NOT support the use of tobacco products.
