Thankfully, the LT office is up and running again today. Everyone here has stayed safe from Sandy and now we’re just hoping to (slowly) ease back into a little normalcy again. So we thought it would be a fun idea to share with you some of our behind the scenes photos of last week’s Holiday shoot…
We kicked off the morning bright and early down in Tribeca with all of the dresses lined up and ready to go.
These are our bright and bold inspiration boards along with the run of dresses for the day.
Working it with our modern props – can’t wait to see the final images on these.
Catching our photographer hard at work!
This dress takes a classic shape and wraps in all of the trends: lace, color blocking, black and white (we could go on…)
It wouldn’t be a holiday shoot without some presents, right?
Wrapping up in front of “the wall” – which, by the way, we made ourselves. Good thing we’ve been working on our DIY skills lately!
Keep an eye out on the site for the debut of our holiday collection. We can’t wait for you to see it!
We’ve already put our DIY skills to the test for the month of October with pumpkin painting and fall recipes. This week, we wanted to push ourselves even further and figure out how to do a mani with one of our favorite prints on London Times right now – the Fair Isle. To be honest, it took a little testing and research to figure out how to get this one just right, but in the end, our savvy team found a simple solution. See how we did it below!
If you’re a Halloween procrastinator, right about now you’re probably considering rummaging through your closet to put together a last-minute costume for that party you have to go to on Friday night. Lucky for you, that’s exactly what we’re doing too, and we’ve happened to come up with a pretty good idea if we don’t say so ourselves:
We can’t believe we hadn’t thought of this sooner, but one of fall’s most popular prints (houndstooth!) also doubles as a fabulously chic detective costume when it’s done in a dress. Pair it with a trench, a wide-brimmed hat and some wedge booties to pull together the look. Find yourself a magnifying glass and if you really feel like going all out, a quirky tie-necklace. And it looks like you’re set, Nancy Drew!
Inspired by the vibrant jewel tones of the LT dresses in our fall collection, we decided to test this colorful concept in the kitchen. Read below for our steps to mixing the perfect oxblood-colored frosting (and others!) as well as our very own cinnamon apple cider recipe.
We’ve already decided that store bought costumes are out of the question this year for Halloween. So here at the London Times office, we’ve been flexing our creative muscles to come up with costumes whose pieces can be worn on the 31st and beyond. This week we’re channeling the glitz and glamour of stars like Bette Davis, Greta Garbo and Jean Harlow by putting together an ensemble straight from the Old Hollywood silver screen itself:
All it takes is a classic dress (like the LT Satin and Jersey) and a few key 1920’s-inspired accessories. Grab a fur stole, a vintage hat, some beaded baubles and an Art Deco embellished heel (all of which are going to be widely on trend thanks to the much anticipated release of The Great Gatsby, by the way). If you really feel like going all-out with DIY aspect of this costume, take a look at this makeup tutorial which will have you literally looking like you’re in a black and white film all night.
