Gary Pepper Vintage is online fashion entrepreneurialism at it’s finest. Gary Pepper’s Nicole Warne has created a must visit online store that not only has a loyal and dedicated fan base but also entertains her audience daily with her blog. When Nicole pitched the concept of curating and photographing a Style Off using the LG Optimus Black as part of our creative commission competition we were super excited.

The Style Off project saw Emma from Spin Dizzy Fall, Darren from Boy Moments, Una and Maggie from Spit Press and Nicole herself style and put together a look for under $250. Everyone came down to the newly re-located Pedestrian HQ and we shot the looks on the Optimus Black in our temporary studio space. Jade from Vivien’s Model Management was our model for the day after being one of the winners from Pedestrian’s public model casting – she’s living proof that practicing in front of a mirror will get you places.

The looks and behind the scenes videos and interviews can be seen below. All the looks have also been uploaded as a gallery on Pedestrian’s Facebook page where you can vote for your favourite look and find out all the details of the products used and how you could pull together the same look for under $250.

Boy Moments

Darren from Boy Moments was a late addition to the project and literally had less than an hour to cruise Westfield and pull together a look for under $250. His all black, masculine look was equal parts Alexander Wang and Top Gun. Love the look want to find out how to pull it together for less than $250 check out our Facebook page and vote now! Darren talks us through his look and why LG was instrumental in his entrée into the blogging universe.

Emma from Spin Dizzy Fall created a look that was strongly influenced by her own personal style. It’s cozy and comfy but chic enough to take you virtually anywhere you want to go. Love it? Want to know how she did it for under $250, head to our Facebook page for all the details and vote!

Spit Press

Una and Maggie from Spit Press created a look that literally took our breath away. While possibly not the most practical outfit to wear down to the corner store to grab a pack of Burger Rings it certainly wouldn’t be out of place in any top fashion magazine. The fact that they created the entire complex and layered look for less than $250 was truly mind-boggling. Find out how they did it and vote for it as your fave look on our Facebook page now.

4 Looks all created for less than $250 shot with the new LG Optimus Black. Photographed and curated by Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper in conjunction with Pedestrian.
