Listen to the audio to hear the story behind this photo journal "FASHION FILES of a CAPRICORN."
The style of this portrait session is quite the classic weave of Capricorn and Virgo.
Several of the pieces featured in this shoot are the model's, inherited from her grandmother (every Capricorn Sun/Rising/in Venus has something special from the generations before her), and are textures and natura we see in the fashions and portraiture of centuries past. The model also communicates an energy of being secure in herself -- an energy you will often find in the Capricorn and Virgo woman.
Capricorn is an Earth sign who's style is classic and comfortable. No fuss fashionable. Practical yet very chic. She's covered, never too revealing. Sometimes, her look can feel...almost cold and her energy very disciplined -- especially when a stiff collar is popped up or a chunky scarf is full around the neck and a dark pair of sunnies are on like armor.
Capricorn loves a uniform, something she can easily pull from her wardrobe to be quickly on her way. Solid colors in neutrals, navy, camels/tans and black are her go-to's. You can usually find a Capricorn in classic pumps, a fitted blazer, skinny jeans or leather pants, and garments that are well-made and say old money honey.
Virgo is also an Earth sign and her style is both sharp and delicate. No detail is overlooked. Virgo looks great in earthy brown furs, leather belts, pencil skirts, paisley, tiny prints, a caplet or polished suit and with piping on the pants or collar, a small and perfectly folded bow at the neck or in the hair. A tailored fit is a must. The Library chic look is perfectly suited for Virgo.
You will likely find her investing in a wardrobe of great pumps (all very well-made), classic bags with minimal hardware, and lots of spa treatments. She is never without creamed hands, a polished manicure, protected lips and a perfect brow.
The pearls in this set-up are actually very representative of Cancer. (It was probably my Moon in Cancer that prompted me to bring these pearls to the shoot.) But, you might also find pearl details (such as in a button) on a Capricorn who loves maritime looks or who enjoys wearing an all black chic and CHANEL sweater dress.
BLACK + WHITE - A VINTAGE LOOK
In the black and white looks below we see the beautiful back details of a strappy silk dress (very representative of Virgo) a solid gold cuff (that speaks to Capricorns and Leos) and a beautiful inherited fur vest (a Cancer would love this fur as a comforting office or living room throw.)
