in this spread shot by anja frers for AMICA magazine, the interplay of black/white, light/dark, solid/ethereal just makes this an absolutely enchanting editorial. it features models asha and jessika lewis in gorgeously girly ensembles of pretty white blouses, flowy skirts and slinky gowns. 

i love how the shadows cast enhance the feel of the photos, although it can sometimes be counterintuitive to have anything other than clothes on a spartanly pristine background. 
LOVES IT!

I love love it when photographers play with light and shadows.. they make the photograph seem more alive.. kind of 3d and not flat.

ps

I didnt know you gave me an award.. you must've mentioned it but.. I tend to forget..

thank you very much!!

I love the details and luxe elements piled on top of such a basic palette...I wish I had restraint like that.

Really interesting, I've never heard of this magazine. Is it American? I totally agree- I love the shadows used here, it looks awesome! Great editorial :) Anja frers is absolutely stunning, too.

i really love the first one. they're gorgeous! haha i know but girls will always be girls. we can never have enough shoes and even when we run out of money, we'd still wish to save up enough for a pair of dream shoes, like the loubs as an example for now. right? haha :)
