Here's Denver's reigning Miss Modernism, Jaime Askvig! We did this photo shoot last weekend in Denver with the help of our mutual friend Jenn. Jaime is as in love with mid-century modern style as I am, and between the two of us I think we have enough 1950's-60's clothing, jewelry and accessories to start our own vintage shop.
This shoot was a blast! I couldn't resist making a faux Vogue cover out of one of my favorite shots. Congratulations Jaime on your win, you're the best Miss Modernism ever!

Don't you love the robin's egg blue dress?!? It's handmade! The purse belonged to my mom in the 1960's.
That's actually a candy cigarette. I "lit" it in Photoshop.
To get this expression I told Jaime to look out the window, the cabana boy is out there and he just took off his shirt ;^)
I really like this shot. Jaime looks FABULOUS.
I just opened the book to a random page and instructed Jaime to look shocked. It turns out I had landed on the most scandalous part of the book (if you've read Peyton Place, you know what part I'm talking about). Funny!
Jaime's red opera cloak is to DIE for!
Jaime's mom made the sash for her. The tiara was part of her winnings, and the necklace belonged to her grandmother.
