Steel Magnolia "Just By Being You"

I recently finished work on the video for Steel Magnolia's second single "Just By Being You." It was a challenge because we shot it a week after the flood. Trying to get anything done around here that week, especially with the mess we had in our own house, was really hard, but there was NO WAY I was missing out on this one. I got to collaborate with my buddy Amanda Valentine on Meg's "dream dress" in the wandering-through-the-forest scenes, which was such a treat. We kept going back to the drawing board (i.e. dress form) until we got the perfect couture-but-punk look. That's the thing I am most proud of, I think. I put a still photo at the bottom of this post so you could have a closer look.
Many thanks to Nicole Miller for helping out with Meghan's green performance dress AND welcome to the Nashville fashion scene, Lauren Weiner of HEAVYMetalbyLW jewelry, who custom made that sweet necklace especially for us. Let me know what you think of the wardrobe!
