Act Three Apparel SS’17 Lookbook

Another amazing collection and lookbook

If you have been around here for awhile, then you are well aware that I have been working with Act Three Apparel for several years now; as a model and stylist for their AW’15 and 16 lookbooks and as a stylist for SS’16 and 17 lookbooks. Watching this label grow has been truly amazing. As soon as Sarah approached me with designs for the first collection I knew it would be loved by many of you and by my blogging/instagram pals and community. Aside from feeling a sense of pride for the brand, being able to meet some online friends that I maybe would never had the chance to meet, first Gaby Cetrulo for SS’16 and then Annika White for this collection, has been another wonderful part of this job.  Annika is beautiful, as you can see, and funny as heck. There is nothing I love more than a girl with an improbable doll-like disposition and a kick-ass personality. Annika was the perfect face for this collection and Danielle brought it together with her dreamy imagery and analogue prowess that make these lookbooks what they are.

ACT THREE. AW’16

ACT THREE. ‘s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection! It feels like we shot this lookbook ages ago, and I have been dying to share it and these perfect little dresses ever since. We were lucky to find a room at The Gladstone Hotel that would made all our Ballet meets Renoir meets Versailles dreams come true and I think it helped to bring out the magic and elegance of this collection. As always, I am so proud to be a part of Sarah’s little team and I hope you all love the collection as much as I do.

Last week I shared ACT THREE. SS’16 collection lookbook that I styled, and today I’m sharing some behind the scenes (or #bts…so internet) images I took during our shoot, in between fussing with Gaby’s clothes and putting together outfits. To be honest, these behind the scenes mostly ended up being pictures of Gaby rather than the surrounding area (we shot on Ward’s Island) and process, which I usually try to share with you all, but Gaby is truly a sight for sore eyes, so it’s hard to turn the camera away from her – you can’t really blame me. If nothing else, it’s another chance for you to check out these beautiful dresses and maybe give yourself a reminder to pick up that Spring/Summer dress ; )

Some of the collection is available in store and online at Victoire, and in store at Coal Miner’s Daughter.

This blog has brought about me getting to do some pretty cool things and meeting some pretty cool people. I’d count styling and modelling (although, not this particular season) for Canadian design label, ACT THREE., and meeting/working with this look book dream team one of them. Getting to be a part of Sarah’s process and team for the last 3 seasons has been really special. ACT THREE. is a label I really stand behind and feel proud to be able to work on and share with you all. This whole collection, from the dresses, to the photography, to the styling, to the art direction, to the modelling, to the hair and makeup was a true labour of love. Our work together is always very collaborative allowing us to create some pretty magical images. I love these dresses and this lookbook, and Gaby’s beautiful face, so I hope you do too!

Outfit: Sad Girls Club

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Sad Girls ClubLarkspur Vintage | Outfit: Sad Girls ClubBack when I realized all the clothes I was purchasing and loving so dearly were vintage, and when I started to make an active effort to seek out vintage dresses for my wardrobe, this dress was exactly the type I wish I owned back then. Unfortunately, finding true vintage pieces similar to the Odile dress by ACT THREE. was no easy feat…that’s until Etsy made it’s mark on the internet world and with a simple type of ‘peter pan collar 60s dress’ you’d find a slew of pieces similar to what you envisioned, but before that, seeking out pieces IRL that actually fit and were in good condition was pretty hard (was that a run-on sentence? who cares.) I slowly found myself becoming familiar with independent labels that made vintage-inspired pieces (that weren’t too rockabilly) and had quite a substantial list of designers I was fond of. A lot of those labels are now defunct or have changed almost entirely in style, so when I was introduced to ACT THREE. I felt like they were filling the void of vintage-inspired pieces that weren’t over the top. The Odile dress is something I wish I was forced to wear in school; it distinctly reminds me of a school uniform – albeit, incredibly stylish – so I of course had to give my most despondent, sad school girl vibes for these photos because this dress feels like the universal uniform for members of the sad girls club.

Tell me about your favourite vintage-inspired independent labels, both from the past and present. I’d love to to hear.
