When it comes to style, Hillary and Andrea of The Garment Theory have it in spades. If you're in Youngstown, Ohio then I'm sure you have heard of them, unless you have been living under a rock :P In that case, Hillary and Andrea are local fashion bloggers and large advocates of supporting local businesses. If you scroll through their blog or their Instagram feed, you'll see that they throw together killer outfits from stores in the area. They're also stellar at finding the best deals on clothes, shoes, jewelry and all those great items that make up the perfect outfit. I'm always so impressed on the different looks they come up with and attention to details they have, not to mention how affordable their looks are. I just want them to be my personal shoppers ;] With all of that talent, I have to add that they are sweet and kind as can be!
With all that being said, I jumped at the opportunity to work with them! Last week, Hillary and I got together one evening to photograph a bunch of different looks for our friends at Youngstown Clothing Co. and Garage Cotton. Their tees and hoodies are seriously comfort perfection. Being a Youngstown native, I am completely wrapped up in the message Youngstown Clothing Co. puts out there. They completely embody what Youngstown is all about.
Garage Cotton is another Ohio based biz and honestly, they had me at sports gear. If you know me, you know I'm a HUGE Cleveland sports fan so I totally dig their sports tees. Another collection of theirs that I LOVE is the Move Me Monday gear. Not just because the athletic apparel is super cute, but also because of the message behind the tops. This collection is to encourage being more active to improve health and combat cancer. A portion of the proceeds will go towards the Linda W. Daniel Foundation. How cool is that?
Our evening ended with two deer walking across the untraveled backstreet we were shooting on downtown. What are the odds?
