beginning boutique: snakes and lattes

Oh, what’s this? A blog post? But Soph, I thought you had fallen off the face of the earth? A week is a long time in blog land, I know. I wanted to post these photos last week but ended up without internet for a couple of days. And we all know that lack of internet is not conducive to blogging. These images are part of Beginning Boutique’s Winter 2011 campaign. For those Brisbane readers out there you may notice that the location of the shoot is the Flamingo Cafe! For those not familiar, the Flamingo Cafe is a hole-in-the-wall joint tucked away in a laneway in Fortitude Valley. It’s complete with striped awning, astro-turf, and retro furniture. It’s perfect for grabbing a quick bite to eat or catching up with friends over coffee. The team at Beginning Boutique definitely have a knack for producing quirky lookbooks (case in point: their Second Summer lookbook). The winter campaign promises to feature not only favourable fashion, but also some of Brisbane’s favourite locations. These images are from Volume 1 of the June lookbook so I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Volumes 2, 3, etc.
