Have yourself a gander at some of the stellar ensembles in the In Stylish Spirits: A Haute Holiday with Refinery29 collection concocted by our first — and fab — Shop Our Outfits collaborator, international fashion hub Refinery29.
As soon as the R29 ladies stepped into our studio, we immediately felt the sizzling synergy of a match made in style heaven. Modeling for our shoot was lovely marketing associate Alex Gurule. Katie Hintz-Zambrano, R29′s San Francisco editor, was on hand to oversee the excitement for the day, while editorial interns/assistant stylists Jessica Velze and Klassy Goldberg pulled garments and accessories with eagle eyes.
Our theme for this shoot was “In Stylish Spirits,” with a focus on looks fit for cheery seasonal activities. All four women chimed in with thoughts about the atmosphere of this Shop Our Outfits, including “festive ensembles that are a teeny bit clichÃ© — young and fresh with unexpected flair, like some well-placed polka dots. That’s Refinery — modern casual with a fun twist!” The color palette was similarly influenced, as the stylists encouraged “traditional holiday colors like silver, red, and green [with a twist].”
While chatting behind the scenes, we asked Katie about some of the best things about working at Refinery29. “We get to be creative every day,” she said, “and San Francisco is such an exciting city. It gets better every week, and we get to share those great things with our readers. Photo shoots are always fun too, and getting to work with fashion, art, and food.” Alex added, “[I love] working with an amazing group of creative people, from editorial to designers to the business end. It’s clear they all love the company, and it shows in everything we do.”
