To Do with The Rack Girls

So we're working on what exactly we're gonna have up on this blog, but here's just a small example of the kind of things we like to do. With Vikky as the model, we do outfit shoots to show how we would style certain items, usually thrifted, from her wardrobe. We have a Savers in town we like to frequent and that usually yields a lot of excellent, unique clothes for a fraction of their original prices. It's nothing too incredible, it's not like a Buffalo Exchange or one of the larger thrift places, but it serves its purpose really well, especially if you know what you're looking for. 
Everything Vikky wears in this look is thrifted
except for her jewelry.
We try and do different things with the "shoots" but since she is not a professional model and I am not a professional photographer, it's usually just a bunch of experimentation. You can find most of what we've already done on our tumblr or, if you don't want to go through our whole blog just our The Works page for direct links to our Rack Diving posts and some pictures of our works.

It took us so many shots to get
anywhere near this effect and in the end
this one was the only shot that looked right >>
This underwater shot I called "Memento Mori" and
was one of the few really nice shots we got
from our experiment with the underwater camera

Anyway, that's just a few pictures from the "shoots" we've had over the past few months or so. We'll be trying to do some OOTDs and the like on here too because, after all, it is a style blog dedicated to exploring and expanding our outlook on plus size fashion, and to applying current trends to our wardrobes when straight size stores don't fit and plus size stores don't carry it.
