Preppy Hamptons BBQ
Lifestyle InspirationThe Principles of Styling Workshop
as seen on 100 Layer Cake

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Leo Patrone | Preppy Hampton's BBQ from the workshop The Principles of Styling

The Principles of Styling workshop is mixture of lecture and hands-on learning. In the morning I gave a lecture on the principles and talked about how to style detail shots as well as how to produce full editorials. Then, photographers put into practice what they learned at the “styling stations.” Finally, there were two sample editorials for photographers to capture. The next workshop will likely be this fall (though it can be taken in a one-on-one format too), you can visit here for more information.

For my sample editorial, I was inspired by the preppy look of the barn at Hammersky Vineyards, so I styled a chic Hampton’s inspired BBQ. First, I picked a blue and white striped linen as the jumping off point for my table.For a punch of spring color, Lavenders Flowers arranged centerpieces with daffodils, narcissus and sweet peas. In between the flowers I styled with platters of homemade mini corn muffins with honey, classic corn on the cob, pork sliders, a farmers market salad, and pitcher of lemonade. Place settings featured sleek spartan plates and classic bone flatware from The Ark. For the model, I chose an off the shoulder white blouse and cute navy blue sailor shorts from Anthropologie paired with modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry.  

A special thanks to Hammersky Vineyards for hosting us at their beautiful property and to all the vendors who contributed to the workshop! And be sure to check out the feature on a 100 Layer Cake right here.

as seen on Style Me Pretty

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Booth Photographics | Mid century meets old world wedding inspiration by wedding stylist Kelly Oshiro

Last year, I  produced and styled this wedding editorial for Booth Photographics portfolio. They requested a unique styled shoot, inspired by a modern couple who loves both mid-century design and old world elegance. For the bride, I chose an elegant Delphine Manivet wedding pantsuit from Solstice Bride paired with handmade modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry, and a sleek ponytail by Studio mm&b. For our groom, a timeless white dinner jacket were paired with velvet loafers, all from The Black Tux. I also pulled designers sunglasses from Gogosha Optique for a few sleek and modern wedding portraits.

Dinner for this intimate elopement was setup on the beautiful balcony of this turn of the century mansion. Modern black and tan bentwood chairs from Yeah! Rentals were paired with a gray velvet linen from La Tavola and the place settings were decidedly modern with marble plates from The Ark and a plated fig salad. Twig and Twine created a loose, organic arrangement in moody fall colors with smoke bush, chocolate cosmos and garden roses. Simple gold taper holders from CB2 held traditional bee’s wax candles. An understated tiered cake from Lele Patisserie was decorated with fall foliage and individual hyacinth blooms. You can see more of this editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.

Prop Styling for JewelryProduct Photos for The Giving Keys

kellyoshiro.com | photo: Lydia Lynn Murty | Prop stylist for jewelry | los angeles prop stylist

Prop styling for jewelry is probably the most detailed styling I do. While these images appear simple because there are no other props, quite the opposite is true. The lack of anything else, means the placement of every single link in each chain has to be just so. I use wire and run it down the length of the chain to create either “S” curves or a perfectly straight chain. Chef’s tongs are also helpful for making sure tiny elements, like the round tag, above are facing in the right direction. I would say a “simple” shot like this could possibly take me up to twenty minutes of fussing around with the chains and overall composition. Jewelry styling definitely takes a certain amount of patience!

Prop Styling for Soft GoodsPhotos by Sposto Photography for Tono & Co

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los AngelesWhen Janelle approached me about this color themed shoot for her textile company, Tono & Co, I was super excited about the concept. She wanted to do a very different product shoot, and show her ribbon with like colored objects. I loved the concept, it reminded of some similar flat lay stories by one of favorite New York prop stylists, Randi Brookman Harris. Referencing her shots and also using the names of each collection for inspiration I began to create a prop list for each color story. For rouge, Janelle thought about playing on the name of the collection and styling with makeup. I loved that idea and I brought cheap eye shadow and lipstick for this scene. This was my first time styling with makeup, I used a knife to break up the rouge powder so it read clearly as makeup in camera. For the lipstick, I bought two of the same color. One I used to make the zig zag on that light pink paper background, and the other, clean, untouched, lipstick I used in the photo.  I added in taffy, pink gummy bears, a petite raspberry tart, my own vintage pink perfume bottle, and a Mrs. Box featuring Janelle’s mom’s ruby ring.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

The golden collection was one of my favorite looks. I found adorable striped yellow and white candy which went perfectly with sliced meyer lemons and individual narcissus buds. I made a toss cone out of some sparkly vinyl paper and Janelle found this pretty confetti which we mixed with dried acacia sprigs. Probably my favorite detail was my petite yellow flower plate with honeycomb and the tiniest brass spoon.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

The forest collection was probably the easiest to pull objects for since there are so many great green things. The final mix included cherimoya, bok choy, kale, lime, mint, sword fern, maidenhair fern, monstera, snap peas, and water cabbage. In the center, I placed a loose ribbon braid that trailed throughout the forest of green things.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

The marine or blue collection was definitely a challenging color. Initially, when we started talking about this shoot I suggested spray painting objects to get the effect we were after. So for blue we did just that and Janelle’s team spray painted petite jewelry boxes (including the nasty white liners). I put ribbon in the boxes, and tied around, and Janelle made a petite boutonnière with the a single bloom of delphinium. My blue milk glass bowl held blueberries and aquamarine ring. Then I scattered individual light blue hydranga blooms throughout the scene.elements to this shoot. For the backdrop, Janelle and I had talked about charcoal and Justine made this simple backdrop on set for me. On top of it I styled, foraged oyster shells and textured beach rocks from Rincon and placed them in a “smoky” S-curve shape. I added in petite black river rock, black sea salt and a black Mrs. Box.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los AngelesThe earth collection shoot evolved quite naturally on set. For each scene They would give me a hanger full of ribbon I thought this one looked so pretty, I just simply laid it down and let the ribbon become the backdrop. I added in copper, star anise, antlers and a cool piece of bark that one of the girls had foraged from a tree. I think my favorite moment was the little bundle of cinnamon sticks tied up with ribbon.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

A special thanks to Janelle and her awesome team (the queens of steaming!) and Shauntelle of Sposto Photography for the stunning photos.

Fashion to Table
Cover Shoot with

It was so much fun styling and producing this cover shoot for Flutter Magazine featuring taste makers, Lauren Conrad and Maura Oehm of Paper Crown. As part of Flutter’s on going fashion to table series, I had the honor of translating their personal styles into a chic wine and dessert pairing party. Photographed by the one and only Jose Villa, I scouted a stunning rose farm in Santa Ynez to serve as the backdrop for this chic shoot. Planned in about 10 days, it was a tight production schedule but thankfully it all came together.

I tapped some of my favorite local business for the desserts, including handmade chocolates truffles from Jessica Foster Confections, paired with port, homemade apple pie from Merci to Go paired with pinor noir, and petite cakes and cupcakes from Enjoy Cupcakes paired with chardonnay. See more about the cover shoot right here on Lauren’s blog and here on Flutter’s blog.

Neutral Ojai Wedding InspirationPhotos by Sally Pinera

It was so much fun working with the lovely Tory of Smith + James Events and Sally Pinera on set as a wedding stylist for this neutral Ojai wedding inspiration shoot. Tory pulled a beautiful lace dress which I paired with a Trousseau & Co hat box as an option during bridal portraits. Tory brought a ton of great dried floral elements, Silk and Willow ribbons and runners to style the wedding invitations by Plume Calligraphy. I started by folding a sheer chiffon remnant to create an ethereal, neutral background. Dried flowers and mini fall leaves were placed around the suite; I broke up the fall leaves to trail through the scene. Finally, fuzzy wisteria pods found on the property, added the perfect textural accent. For favors, Tory was envisioning little herb bundles, I used one of her vintage baskets paired with wild eucalyptus to hold the bundles which were accented with a few more dried floral elements. Tory also wanted a cheese board with accents of pear, which I plated and prepped (and ate). To go with it, I made a champagne cocktail with sliced pear garnish and served it on a classic silver tray from The Ark. You can see more of this wedding editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.

Last fall, the lovely Sally Pinera invited me to come prop style the still life elements on her California wedding styled inspiration editorial shot in the stunning Morro Bay. For the invitations and floral details, I used a soft blue linen layered with white gauze to create a perfect seaside feeling backdrop. Sally brought great shells, loose sea salt, and amazing invitations written on capiz shells by The Little North Sea Studio. I layered the invitations and then drifted a trail of salt throughout the scene. I used the same idea, the trailing salt, at each place setting as well. For the boutonnieres by Poppy Design Co.,  I layered a piece of coral over a handmade soft blue ceramic charger from The Ark.

I recently had the opportunity to work as prop stylist and floral designer for wedding company and the uber cool tuxedo rental company, The Black Tux. My girl Annie Cavallo, handled the bridal styling and I handled the set design for all the faux wedding elements. Above, is the couple leaving “ceremony.” I designed a moody purple, black and white bouquet for the bride and a variety of boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. My favorite scene to prop was the cake cutting scene with a dummy cake from Lele Patisserie that I decorated with maidenhair fern and hellebore.

A Charcuterie TablePhotos by Nancy Neil
as seen on Style Me Pretty Living

I am so happy to finally share my favorite table that I’ve contributed to this year. It was very much a team styling effort with the photographer Nancy Neil pulling amazing platters and glassware from Botanik and then I added in a mix of props from my collection and Vintage Vignettes.

Shot at a private estate with its own citrus grove, I had fun running around and harvesting citrus straight from the property. I wired citrus branches to chunky wood candle holders and made “citrus trees” to add height to the table. And the amazing foodie charcuterie spread by Ayda Robana of Om Sweet Mama was out of this world. Post shoot, this table became lunch for the crew (roughing it I know).

Here are some tips from Ayda Robana for the perfect spread…

Charcuterie Menu Ideas:

  • Nuts: pistachios, and marcona almonds
  • Toppings: French butter, flur de sel, homemade jalipaino jelly, local wildflower honey, French radishes, cornichons, and caselvtrano green olives
  • Cheeses: hombolt fog, pecorino, petite basque, gouta, chèvre, double cream bri, stout cheddar
  • Charcuterie: prochutto di Parma, bresaola, sopressata, and chicken liver pâté
  • Dried fruits: dried white peaches, dried apple slices
  • Fresh fruits: grapes, figs if in season
  • Fresh baguette sliced thinly on the diagonal, flatbread crackers, bread sticks, rainforest crisps

Citrus Inspired Tablescape
by Amy MerrickPhotos by Jen Huang for Flutter Mag

kellyoshiro.com | photos: jen huang for flutter mag | florals: amy merrick | prop styling: kelly oshiro

On the same day I got to prop style for Sarah Winward, I also got to produce and prop style this citrus inspired tablescape for the amazing Amy Merrick. Amy envisioned a citrus drenched table inspired by her travels abroad to Spain and luckily Lotusland has citrus orchards which they allowed us to forage from. For the foraging scene, I used my french gathering basket and then Jen Huang photographed her portrait under the famous lemon tree arbor.

Amy’s editorial was about how she designs tabletops and was a part of her lecture for Florabundance Design Days. Since Amy wanted to demonstrate different options and combinations for place-settings I pulled a variety of tabletop options for her. With them, I styled one of my personal favorite component,still life, photos which is below.

Amy ended up choosing The Ark’s geometric chargers and bone flatware, simple white plates from Hudson Grace, nubby nuetral napkins and votive holders from Porch mixed with photographer Jen Huang‘s collection of taper holders. Joya Rose hand painted menus in her distinctive script to go with theme.
