Carena West // Ponytail Side Dutch Braid
I'm very excited to show off another series shot by Colleen O'Brien in my hometown Denver, Colorado. We did this shoot two days before I left for Cancun and one day before a crazy spring time blizzard. I was completely unprepared for snow of any kind, most of the things I had in my suitcase were for Braids & Bikinis and my trip to Mexico! You would never know from these photos the complete white-out that was about to take place outside these windows.
We recently featured another set with Colleen, shooting the luxurious brand Lilliput and Felix from London. Today we feature another brand across the globe from us, Carena West. They are a brand in New Zealand that graciously sent us several of their swimwear. We loved the Olivia Lace-Up one piece so much that we featured it on Braids & Bikinis twice! Once in the floral print shot by Kassia Phoy at the Mondrian Hotel and once here!
Alongside Colleen was local makeup artist Allison Beach! She crushed this blue eyed look and complimented it with some lashes by House of Lashes. The loose dutch braid combo with a high pony is an easy look for any new braiders!
