A nice, fun, quick photo shoot with my good friend and model, L.Y.

I don’t know why, but I think this window is really pretty…steeped with ironic symbolism.

I can rarely say enough good things about Better On You; and this photoshoot has only made my list of accolades longer. Between having a welcoming staff composed of models, photographers and designers and an owner whose forte is creating new permutations of up-cycled and rediscovered haut couture fashions, Better On You has carved out a long-lasting and guiding presence in the Calgary fashion scene. As a consignment store with a focus on design, BOYou surges with cost-effective ways to cut across trends and distill dramatic style. The berth of interesting threads and the owner (Maggie)’s discerning eye gave this Fall photoshoot a distinct air of sly whimsy.

The models, photographers and, of course, the staff of Better On You made this shoot a distinct joy. Thank you.

This makes up the first instalment of photos from our Me Like Pretty / Better On You Fall Shoot.

This is my friend, Matt. He created Breathe Parkour Magazine. What he does in this speech will make you feel tingly all over.

Smiling with a mug full of coffee, the morning light couldn’t have made the alley behind the London Drugs look prettier.

…Pretty enough that I could capture this moment with my iPhone 3GS.

Wicked news: after a very friendly, and unexpected conversation with Maggie—the owner of Calgary’s vestige of top quality, up-cycled fashions (Better On You)—we now have a tremendously generous and eager sponsor of clothes and accessories for all of our upcoming photo shoots. 

In return for tagging all posted photos with links to Better On You’s facebook page, our dressers and photographers get to raid the store before each photo shoot.

Any models, photographers, dressers or designers who may be reading this post, drop me a line on facebook (This Is Nagy) if you ever want to come partake. These shoots are purely for fun. Just a bunch of people with cameras and faces heading out to take some pretty pictures.
