SpicyCandyDC: LPM Holiday Lookbook 2011

LPM Holiday Lookbook 2011

on Dec 5, 2011
We have to be honest, it's a little difficult to find the perfect words to describe the feeling of pride we feel while posting these images of the LPM Holiday Lookbook without sounding a little too emotional or overwhelmingly excited.  And a big part of us just wants to skip this whole write-up part all together and go straight to the photos so that we could get lost in the story all over again as we did the day we worked on this shoot.  So if you also feel the desire to do just that, no hard feelings here, we totally understand (and encourage it), but for those of you who are interested in finding out how this whole project came to be in the first place, it went a little something like this... 

After Carlis and I shot the first LPM lookbook with Katherine over a month ago, we knew we had to work together again, but this time we wanted to do something bigger.... much, much bigger.  So when Katherine approached us about doing an LPM Holiday Lookbook in the H Street area (an up-and-coming vintage brand featured in an up-and-coming DC neighborhood) we knew we had to be part of it.  Carlis and I have had the idea of shooting on location at Little Miss Whiskey's ever since we discovered its mysterious purple walls and incredibly intoxicating vibe a little less than a year ago, so when we learned of Katherine's H street Country Club vision of "models playing mini golf in 4 inch heels wearing fancy LPM vintage pieces", we knew our creative concept was a match made in heaven.  We combined our visions to create one killer concept, and next thing we knew, we had an incredible team of talented and creative people come together to make this vision a reality.  

We want to extend a huge 'thank you' to our stunning models, team of bloggers/stylists, videographers, photographers, and everyone else who made this project a huge success.  We also want to personally thank Marshall of TPWP for taking the role of lead photographer and capturing the essence of this lookbook so effortlessly and so perfectly.  It is a dream come true to have this vision we've had in our minds for so long made into a real and tangible product.  We are true believers that these types of collaborations will continue to grow our community because together we are a million times stronger than we could ever be on our own.  So let's continue to learn from each other while working on bringing the much deserved recognition to our DC fashion and creative community... one lookbook, designer, event, collaboration at at time." :)
