Style Profile: Feminine, colorful style for photographer

FARGO – Romantic and a little whimsical, Elisabeth Iepson’s personal style is much like her photography style.

Iepson, who owns photography business Elisabeth Eden, often wears dresses and skirts with feminine details.

I spotted the photographer near downtown Fargo wearing fresh, summery prints.

Describe your style. I’m mostly feminine; I wear a lot of dresses.

What are you wearing today? Skirt, shoes and cardigan from Target, yellow-striped top from Forever 21, and necklace from LOT 2029.

What inspires your style? Photos I like inspire my style. I like romantic, back-lit photography.

I photograph a lot of children, too, so the color from those shoots is inspiring.

I also take ideas from people, and I’m on Pinterest a lot.

Where do you shop? Proper & Prim for accessories, LOT 2029 for clothes and accessories, Target, T.J.Maxx and Forever 21.

What’s your favorite fashion item? My wedding ring. It’s an antique from the 1940s or 1950s, and it’s customized.

What does the term “authentic style” mean to you? I think it means you stand out a little and don’t look like everyone else.

Since you’re a photographer, do you have any tips for people to look better in photos? Put your chin forward and touch the roof of your mouth with your tongue. It eliminates double chins.

What are some of your favorite places in Fargo? Quaker Steak & Lube for $6 burgers, Nichole’s Fine Pastry, Spicy Pie and Mezzaluna – that’s our get-dressed-up-and-go-out place.
