Curiouser and Curiouser (Behind the Scenes with Deconstructed Design and Charm School Vintage)

As a supplement to the Deconstructed Design jewelry spread I shot in May, I lifted a handful of photos from Charm School Vintage on Instagram – taken on the day by proprietor and stylist Shari Gerstenberger and flagrantly re-blogged here for their sheer wonder and coolness.

(I rarely take pictures of my own while working, and so I am always extremely grateful when someone else thinks to do so.)

The ensemble you see here is probably my favorite look from the shoot – a bit Black Swan, a bit “Dark Alice,” and very in line with the savage-beauty approach of Deconstructed Design founder Kelly Young.

If you like what you see, share the love and follow Charm School on Instagram (charmschoolvintage), Twitter, and Pinterest.

For pricing, purchasing, and more information regarding Kelly and her work, please visit Deconstructed Design on Facebook.

Finally, for your listening enjoyment: Summon a certain mood by cuing up Black Cat by Brit psychedelic-electronic outfit Broadcast, and allow the late Trish Keenan to serenade you from beyond the Beyond.  (Oh, my ears and whiskers – how sweet it is!)

I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night?  Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning?  I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.  But if I’m not the same, the next question is, who in the world am I?  Ah, that’s the great puzzle!
