Do I love flowers or nice underthings more?
Last month I had the honor of creating fresh wearables for the Salem’s Scissors Spring 2018 Ediflorial (get it? Ediflorial/editorial?).
Alex Butterfield (Butterfield Photography) was our photographer, assisted by Francisco Escobar Mendez (Let’s Be Frank Photography). Working with them was a real treat. Alex was very thoughtful and made sure to get some shots just for me—that is, where the flowers were in the spotlight. I am very particular about how the flowers look <insert laugh/cry emoji and eyeroll emoji> but he welcomed my direction on set, and to that, I am very appreciative!
Salem’s Scissors handmade lingerie is special. It’s an impressive one-woman show featuring Sabrina Spörk Woodling.
Not only do I like to support people in my community, and women following their dreams/working for themselves, I like to surround myself with items that were crafted by actual hands, nearby (read: with heart, and locally).
Sabrina is currently working on a few items for me and I can’t wait! I chose the dark bouquet fabric (pictured below) paired with black mesh for the undies and dark violet velvet for the bra. As for styles, I got the Taylor set with removable Kitty Klips, which is what Katrina is wearing below. Sabrina is also making me six-clip garter belt and another pair of the high-waisted undies with hot hot pink velvet and a super-summery, bright floral print. Wheee!
Special thanks also to Cori Taylor who was the ever-helpful assistant.
