The video and band that Brittany was referring to yesterday was for One Republic’s “Feel Again”. Getting to see all of the work that goes into a music video shoot was really cool even if we were too diva to stay long enough to see the filming happen. Film until 5 AM?! Some of us have got to work, we can’t be frolicking in the Oakland hills until the sun comes back up! But part of me wishes we had, it was one of those once in a lifetime experiences. Anyway, here is what I wore.
(Dress and Jacket- Forever 21, Shoes- Britt’s riding boots that I am obsessed with)
(The wardrobe people didn’t ask to change one thing about the looks we had picked)
(I like this look because it mixes hard with soft)
By removing the jacket, you get a more feminine look. I think the key to any interesting outfit is layering. Sometimes adding pieces that you don’t think will look good together is a risk you should take. That is what fashion is all about, not being afraid to take a chance to come up with something unique.
I can’t deny that ever since I met Chelsea, the most interesting events have happened to us. One day I got a call from a friend asking if we would be interested in being in a music video being filmed in the bay area. Of course we said yes! We LOVE music and producing and/or being a part of creative content (hence the blog). We didn’t know many details about it including who or what the video was even for but sent our info to the right place and BOOM! We started receiving emails about the “secret” locations and what our wardrobe was supposed to look like. The most fun we had though was trying to nail down the outfits. This was in our email about what to try to dress as:
They also sent this photo to try to show us what the wardrobe guidelines were supposed to turn out like:
We were a little confused but excited by the challenge! So we dressed up and headed to set. Although, getting to set was also extremely fun. We were given a secret location and a map and told to show up around midnight.
This place was awesome. The views of San Francisco were beautiful and it was like driving through a forest. Once we got to the location was the best part. My friend who works on music video concepts for a label took us around and introduced us to all the people that make these things happen. We ended up at wardrobe where they had racks and racks of clothing for the shoot. It was heaven. Then we got in line with the other people there for wardrobe. It seems we were the only ones who took the wardrobe guidelines to heart and tried to dress up. They were dressing everyone else and changing their outfits. Finally, we got to the stylist where they looked us up and down and claimed – great! We had nailed the look. And here were our outfits, or at least mine. Chelsea’s will be up tomorrow so make sure to check back!
(Forever 21 dress, Litter leg garter, Steve Madden combat boots, and glam Kat Von D lipstick)
(For the actual shoot we disheveled our hair and put twigs in it, they really liked that touch)
This was actually us AFTER we got home from the shoot. So much fun to be around all of the hustle and bustle. We found out once we started getting emails that the shoot was for One Republic’s new song and you know, the song hadn’t been released yet so we had no idea what it was. It’s one of both of our favorites now. We had both had a crazy last year and now are so much better for it which I feel is the point of the song. Check back tomorrow for Chelsea’s wardrobe ace and a link to the video!
