I’ve been dreaming of this photo shoot for Styled by Books for months now, and I’m so glad it finally came to fruition. Today, I’ve got a Night Court-inspired outfit based on the A Court of Thorns & Roses series by Sarah J. Maas.
I started with this star-print dress from eShakti (I lengthened the dress from how it is shown on their website, using their customization feature). Their site actually has a ton of celestial-inspired dresses right now that would make for an amazing Night Court-inspired ensemble. I seriously want so many of them!
Of course, this look wouldn’t be complete without Feyre’s distinct tattoo. Thankfully, Bookmark’d Tattoos has an amazing temporary tattoo version; you can get just the hand tattoo or the full sleeve, like I have on here. Use NOVELNOVICE to save 10% on any orders from her shop.
The star tiara I really wanted was something like $500, so I made do with this $1 version I got at Walgreens from their 4th of July seasonal section. But my necklace is a custom, Night Court-inspired key from Aspiring Artista. She’s planning to have more ACOTAR-inspired necklaces in her shop when it reopens, and you can always request a custom piece if you don’t see what you want in stock. SARA15 will save you 15% on any order, including custom.
This is one of my favorite cardigans – I’ve worn it in previous Styled by Books shoots – and is from Torrid. (Though it is not currently available.)
A lot of my Styled by Books photo shoots happen around my own yard, but sometimes they call for a more epic location – as was the case here. We shot these in Tryon Creek State Natural Area just outside of Portland, OR. It’s filled with amazing trails, bridges, woods, creeks, and a visitor’s center.
Tell me in the comments below: what other books/series would you love to see get the Styled by Books treatment? (And if you feel inspired, be sure to post your own photos on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #StyledByBooks)
