To celebrate the launch of Resolute Boutique & Lifestyle we've created our very first Winter Catalog to showcase what we've got! And it wouldn't be a proper Resolute Winter Catalog unless we actually had fun doing it!
For our first issue I recruited the top four women in the business I knew who could get the job done, enjoy their wine, and above all, have a killer time!
One of my all time best of friends, Veronica Lietz, whom I've known since 5th grade, was my partner for the job. We hang out on a regular basis so it was no surprise I roped her into being a model for the shoot. Plus we've now done the Juneau Wearable Arts Extravaganza for two seasons now and have both concluded that it's our calling! And who doesn't like a reason to get hair and makeup done, while wearing new clothes that haven't even hit the sales floor yet?! Like yasssss!
Olivia Hotch did hair and makeup, as I've used her before for Wearable Art and she can handle the crazy plus is 100% capable of getting down with her bad self. She's great at seeing details and making sure our hair is on par for the event. Plus she likes pizza and coffee too so....
No photoshoot can be productive without a Set Director, so I pulled in one of my favorites, Cera Retzlaff, as she is a goddess when it comes to event coordination and organization. Not only was she the Jay to my America's Next Top Model, but she too has an eye for body posture, wine, and good vibes.
Sydney Akagi was the master behind the lens capturing the moments like the #GirlBoss she is. Her style of photography is exactly what attracted me to her, a lifestyle approach that really showcases the simplicity and beauty of each moment. And since the Winter Catalog was more of a girls party anyway, she did a fantastic job working it, and just being there for the ride.
The set took place at a family cabin on the water, the quintessential Alaskan Lifestyle. With ocean views, canoes, wood stoves and wood stacks, handmade kitchen ware, and no neighbors! Mix this with girlfriends, snacks, weed and wine, fashion, hair and makeup, stormy weather, and we've got ourselves a recipe for a cozy, good time!
There's nothing better than starting a cozy fire with wine in our coffee mugs talking about the latest books we've read, Facebook gossip, and our upcoming goals and plans we've got for the dark season looming around the corner. As any good Alaskan knows, winter here calls for some good planning of indoor activities like crafting, Wearable Art, or getting our hibernation layer on with our favorite comfort food recipes!
What are you favorite pieces? What do you wear on one of those blistery winter days when all you want to do is be cozy, read a book next to the fireplace, and sip wine out of your mug?
Use the comment section below and tell me where you want to see the Spring Catalog Shoot take place. Want us to go to Baranof Hot Springs? Or should we hot foot it over to Sentinel Lighthouse?! What staple pieces do you need for spring in Southeast Alaska? What do you want to see more of?
PS - It was cold as shit that day! Literally raining side ways. But I guess it wouldn't be a Winter Catalog shoot without the wind blowing you a new one.
