16 AND DANCING

At the end of August I was in Oregon waiting in a parking lot and heard Johnny Burnette's You're Sixteen come on 70s on 7 xm radio. I wouldn't be joking when I said a video flashed before my eyes. This is it.


As far as further inspiration, I wanted it to be like you were eating a cupcake, looking at vintage photographs and watching a girl who just turned 16 dance out her joy. It was just by chance that a car was in the local that I wanted to shoot it at, so now it kind of looks like a Sweet 16 car commercial. But we'll say it's all on purpose. Or as I was trying to convince a boy this weekend: everything happens for a reason.

The outfits are basically all of my favorite 60s/70s vintage pieces, except for the shoes which are a mix of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Moschino Cheap&Chic and more Marc by Marc Jacobs. The leather hair bows are American Apparel, and the hot pink jacket is H&M. The dancing is a mix of being completely seriousness and completely making fun of myself. I laughed the entire time I was editing. Watch full screen for full effect.
Hope you enjoy.

I loved it so much that I watched it twice! I thought that it was pretty hilarious, especially the end!

Adorable & hilarious. I was eating an apple while I watched it... not quite a cupcake, but almost as good.

This is like my favorite thing ever!! I'm totally saving this post and watching it over and over…. not in a stalker-ish way though; just kind of like pure, mood-boosting, happiness. your outfits, the songs, the dancing = love!

Rheia said...

Can't tell how much I loved this! Not just your clothes and how you styled them tho. The way you dance, smile, walk... It's pure perfection. Would be great if you posted more videos!

Take care. :)

Madeleine George said...

I absolutely love this video - and I completely agree with the girl a few comments up, it's lovely seeing a girl of 16 acting her age. Not running around in skimpy outfits and going to clubs, but messing around and having FUN.
You are beautiful :)
