Heartfelt Photo shoot

Today was an exciting day for me. I was able to go along to watch a vintage fashion photo shoot for the newly opening Heartfelt shop in Watchet, Somerset. Appropriately it took place at a station on the West Somerset Steam railway.

      Pale silver/grey 1940's dress, with the model longingly looking out for the next steam train..........




   This1940's hat worn at a rakish angle.... and (below) 1950's net with tiny velvet bows.....

Another vintage dress, blue/grey in colour and probably
dating from the late 40's or early 50's....perfect for a prom.
Stunning full length black dress with sequinned bodice teamed with Ostrich feather wrap...
                                Designer dogs?



With thanks to Martin Hill photography.com who allowed snapshots to be taken while he was working. A really nice guy and highly recommended... and thank you to the West Somerset Railway for allowing the photo shoot.

Lovely to see the photos, Lizzie, we've certainly been to the railway many times and will pop into the shop when we next go to Watchet. The girls look fab but they must have been freezing!
