This is my first published and organized photoshoot – yay!! – and I am pleased to say I lost my photo shoot virginity to Tessa and her magnificent wardrobe. Tessa and I have been friends for about a year now.. we came together through the Studio Art program at the University of Guelph. Whilst in the program we befriended Eleni!! who actually photographed this whole thing and did an AMAZING job on make-up. You go girl.

Tessa’s wardrobe is mainly H&M, VV boutique (Value Village), or from her mother’s closet. Pay attention to the prices of all the garments (that she conveniently remembers) because most are SUPER CHEAP. Well done Tessa. This proves you can look fantabulous and shop smart!!

Here’s part one of her wardrobe.. meaning we will most definitely have a summer rendition involving florals, maxi’s and sandals.
ENJOY THE LOVEAMV COLLECTION
