dress: American Apparel, present from my Mom -- blazer: thrift -- scarf: antique shop -- shoes: thrift -- tights: We Love Colors, present from my Mom
I felt very French in this little ensemble yesterday. I'd had a bit of difficulty styling this dress in ways over than boots-and-big-cardigan, so figuring this whole blazer-and-flats bit out was exciting for me.
It was super bright out when I was taking these yesterday morning, making for some rather harsh shadows. I can't wait for the next time Alex takes photos for me, let me tell you. The whole tripod and self-timer thing gets old and boring fast, especially since I don't have a remote.
On that note, I have to return the DSLR I've been using next week. I guess it's back to my point and shoot! Maybe Alex will let me borrow his nicer-than-mine point and shoot? Anyway, I've been thinking that buying a DSLR would probably be a good move on my part, but I just don't have the funds at the moment. Which brings me to my next point...
I am going to do an Etsy store over the next few weeks! I've got a bunch of awesome stuff that just doesn't quite work for me. It should launch by March 20 or so, and I'll leave it up until it either all sells or goes untouched for so long that I become totally discouraged. I should have a selection of shoes from 7.5-9, some jackets, dresses, and other fun pieces! I've been wanting to do this for ages, so I'm really excited.
Today is my dear friend Lauren's 20th birthday! You should check out her art--she's by far one of the most talented artists I have ever met.
I hope all of you are having good weeks and staying happy and healthy. Things are busy for me (surprise!), but I'm still feeling like my head is above water :)
Today's title comes from Belle & Sebastian -- Sleep the Clock Around. Have I ever mentioned that I'm obsessed with (mostly early) Belle & Sebastian? Some of my favorite music ever.
