I was lucky enough to see the shoot for ModCloth’s latest stylebook, “Walking Tour,” firsthand in Pittsburgh’s North Side, and I’m excited to share some sneak peeks!
Shot partly in the historic Mexican War Streets and at the Caribbean-inspired bed and breakfast, The Parador Inn, “Walking Tour” features some of the most beautiful backdrops in ModCloth’s hometown paired with our newest spring looks.
Believe it or not, the regal porch you see above is actually the Community College of Allegheny County’s main campus! Setting the scene with our elegantly dressed model, Lauren, the Photo Team had a knack with drawing out the beauty of the urban campus as the warm sun brought up tulip buds all around us.
The looks above and below were shot at the North Side’s paradise, the Parador Inn. Ed, the friendly proprietor, graciously showed me around the tropical flower-themed rooms decorated in rich mahogany antiques and shades of Key West. The charming bed and breakfast is quite an escape from the Steel City and complimented the saturated pastels of this season’s palette.
Exploring the 1860s mansion, I began to plan a getaway in my head. Wearing one of “Walking Tour’s” many alluring dresses in the sandy courtyard, I couldn’t help but envision a weekend retreat for me and my best girlfriends.
This is definitely one of my favorite ModCloth stylebooks. I love the artistic use of this season’s rich, refreshing colors and the sweetly feminine looks combined with Pittsburgh’s finest Victorian red brick homes and its jewel of a B&B.
What are you hoping for in Spring styles?
