23Skidoo Photo Shoot with Miss Art Deco, San Francisco

Feb 8, 2013 9 comments
Last month we did a lovely photo shoot with Monica, Miss Art Deco, and her stylish beau Sam, at the wonderful Chateau Tivoli in San Francisco.

Monica wore a smashing reproduction flapper gown from Unique-Vintage.com, paired with our brown & white 23Skidoo Spectator T-Straps, which serendipitously matched Sam's real vintage spectators perfectly.

We had a great time, and hope you enjoy the photos!

Here is a behind-the-scenes video I pieced together...

Models: Monica Lenk & Sam Simmons
Photography: Chris Stowell
Shoes: "23Skidoo" by American Duchess
Dress: Unique-Vintage.com
Shot on location at Chateau Tivoli, San Francisco, CA


  1. Ooh, I love it! Wonderful pictures, and perfect location! They look great, and how fun that their shoes match! :D

    Question though -- what sort of slip or underdress is Monica wearing with the Unique Vintage dress? I really like the colors better on her and in your pictures and video. The pictures on the UV webpage make it look more pale and light green and I like your sort of moss-green color. (I'm terrible with color names, but you get the idea, right?)


    1. Hi Jamie - I made a slip to go with the dress (http://americanduchess.blogspot.com/2013/01/v351-how-to-make-simplest-1920s-slip.html). It's a very close match to the color of the fabric, but you are right, the photo on the Unique-Vintage website looks MUCH bluer than the dress is. It's very olive/moss, rather than more teal.

    2. Thanks so much for the explanation! I really like the way the colors turned out in your pictures, so....maybe I need to save up! Looks great. :D

  2. Beautiful! I already loved the shoes but the photos and video are just fantastic.

  3. OMG, those pics are completely fabulous!

  4. Sheer 20s perfection with THOSE shoes and THAT dress and THEIR overall fabulous-ness. Incredible! You must be very pleased :)
