Wild Turkey


These are my two Turkish friends.  These sisters, Ceylan and Ceren, were accompanied by Marek, the short haired girl's boyfriend, at Burning Man last week, and were welcomed to my house afterward to decompress before heading back to LA and Turkey.  We lounged most of the days, with a little thrift shopping thrown in for good measure, then about 10 minutes before sunset this evening, my husband suggested we do a quick photo shoot. Knowing we had mere minutes till sundown, we girls ran upstairs and in a frenzy, threw these dresses, shoes and accessories on (luckily they both wear the same size shoe as me and asked no questions as I insisted, "Here! Just put these on!") and hustled out to the sunset spot. These were my favorites from the bunch but honestly the two of them are so photogenic that all of them feel like magic! AHHH! It is so fun to style these girls!  Both were saying, "What about my hair!" Perplexed I was just like, are you kidding me! Its perfect! So effortless. So chic. I wish they could stay and just be my dress up dolls forever.

All dresses: thrifted
All accessories: thrifted
Shoes: brown t straps- gift, grey- old navy, black- UO

PS.  I'll have a hair photo tomorrow I promise!! Sorry for the delay!

Ok first of all, your last post, I was reading it right after I was wearing loose trousers tucked into my black rubber riding boots. I've always liked that look. My sister said I looked like I was going fishing and my mother told me I looked like I should be in Scotland or Ireland. I like both those scenarios.
Ok now about this post: If I were there, you would think I were a midget! holy moly, you ladies are tallllllll. tall and beautiful of course! I really love that first shot, divasssssssssssssssss.

Stephanie said...

Sounds like so much fun! This is exactly what I'd love to do with my sisters. Hmm, maybe I should be more proactive about making that happen next time we are together.

Sydney said...

This looks like so much fun! All three of you are so beautiful and just look like you're having a great time.

Becca said...

That black and white dress may be my soulmate! It's beyond fantastic!! Christina, is it yours? If it ever makes it to the shop, give me a heads up. Because I need it!!

Looks like so much fun! I love how you styled your new friends so quickly. I love the black and white dress.

These are lovely photos of three simply stunning women. The rugged landscape compliments your pretty silhouettes, and the lighting from the setting sun is perfect. Those two are Turkish delights. Truly.

Wow, all spectacular dresses. The white and black one is my fav....such a fun geometric shape and the diagnal stripes are wonderful. Thanks for these!!!
