Behind the Scenes: Mesh Tank and New Models

A couple weeks ago our good friend, runner and now Mountain State Oiselle rep, Sarah K, came out to Seattle for a the Kingston Adventure's ReTREAT. She had a day to spend in Seattle and somehow I convinced her to model a couple pieces in the line we didn't have photos of. I mean convince is a strong word. I think she was here at Oiselle HQ before I was done with the question. Ahh the lure of the camera.

Jen Bigham has also been here for part of the summer, so naturally I asked her too. It's always nice to have fabulous runner ladies (both moms, no less) on hand for impromptu photo shoots.

One of the pieces I needed them to model the new Oiselle Mesh Tank. The Mesh Tank is new for late summer season. The same light, super wicking fabric used in the much loved Simplicity Tank, this top is ready for heat. For real. I typically like to wear just a sports bra in the heat, but that kind of stands out in Seattle so I shy away from it. This tank is like running sans shirt. Which is why I now have three.

Even Jen's little one tried her hand at some action modeling. I wish I could say we're selling that headband.

During our studio shoot for Fall 12 I paired the running tank with long sleeved tops, like the stripey.  Turns out it’s a great base layer that adds a pop of color. I love getting summer clothes that transition to fall and spring. Maximize the budget, maximize the space in the running threads drawer!
