She Poses in Thrift: A Lookbook of the Model Vs. the Girl Next Door

Poses Inspired by High Fashion

I got the idea to start doing my take on high-fashion, couture model poses from The Spirited Thrifter, who is a fellow thrift enthusiast. I had seen the concept done before, but this time, I was inspired to action. So, I thought that maybe other thrift addicts would enjoy a lookbook of my "versus" poses in my thrifted finds.

The Concept

In case you're wondering what "versus" poses are...me vs. the professional model in the same or similar pose. They're in top-dollar designer duds, and I'm in second-hand, thrifted pieces. They're photographed by world-renowned photographers wielding expensive, top-of-the-line cameras, and I'm shot by my cousin, Kayla Reed, with my Canon Rebel! If you're curious to know the back story of a piece, just click on the pic. This post will be updated with new poses as they are taken, now without further ado, enjoy!

My Inspiration

The above photograph on the left, is of model Peggy Moffit. She was a model in the 1960's. The Rubber Ducky dressed whispered "Mod" to me, so I searched for Twiggy, and stumbled upon Peggy. View this link for more about Mod.

My Inspiration

The model on the left was shot by Yie Sandison as part of his La Dolce Vita series. The style of dress the model is wearing is retro Italian inspired. My sheer blouse with the sequins Peter Pan collar is by ICU and was purchased at the Goodwill for less than $4.
