Alright, Francine and I are finally finished making our new short film called "Olive"! And that's right, we actually found a title for it. I think this one was the hardest, and possibly the closest thing to a real video shoot, as we had a location that wasn't my apartment, or outside, and we had over a dozen extras! Yes it's true, Francine's iphone continues to be fastened to her tripod with an elastic band, but we are getting closer to being real professionals. 
 The first outfit I wear is this lovely little dress that I actually won on Here Comes the Sun. It's by a lovely Australian designer called Kings of Carnaby, and I feel so special to have something that's from so far away! I'm also wearing a great coloured pair of tights from joe fresh and my new staple black fall shoe that I ordered from Office Shoes.
I'm not going to include the next outfit because it's nothing that special, but this outfit consists of a sequined blazer that's Francine's and I have no idea where she bought it. The hat is from Holt Renfrew, and the pants, oh the pants were a gift from my mother's friend and they are vintage (1980s for sure) Armani hounds tooth trousers! I actually have the matching blazer too!
This dress is from a vintage shop near my apartment. It's an awful polyester, but I love how it looks. I bought it with a guilty heart, thinking it would never be worn, but here we are. Let that be a lesson to you!
Here we have the classic Caitlin's Club Monaco sweet heart top (I say that because it's my only going out shirt) and Francine's favourite red Club Monaco gloves. The skirt is American Apparel, the shoes are the same as before, and the flower is also Francine's. 

Okay, so before you watch the film I should mention a few things: the song we used is Anala by King Khan & the BBQ Show and we shot it at the Toronto Temperance Society, and I actually was the cleaning lady there this summer, so the movie is very authentic. I hope you enjoy.

  9. I so enjoyed this - in fact, I had to watch it twice to 'catch' everything you had packed in. Great styling, location and use of 'extras' in the various scenes. What an achievement.

  10. I love it!!!! You two ladies must have had so much fun shooting this video :)
    You look so darling, the styling is great and all your outfits are adorable, but most of all it's all so spontaneous that looks real, the shots where you smoke and dance are my favorites!

  11. Well,it all looks incredibly classic, like the mix of the more modern music though.Great approach!
