details 
belt - snagged from another dress

tights - Target
shoes - Le Bunny Bleu

I've somehow managed to keep this dress in my closet for over a year yet only wear it one time before this. The first time I wore it was actually around this time last year when I was in Philadelphia. Since then it's sat untouched until my big closet clean out sale (which I still cannot believe went SO well!) I rediscovered it and decided it needed to be worn. It's such a nice cut, if only it were black and white striped... Hah!

This outfit shoot did no go as planned. First a cop, who I've decided might not have even been a cop at all just someone strange in a uniform, walked up the road to where I was and just stopped about fifteen feet away from me. He started pacing around, looking up at me every few seconds, just sending off weird vibes. I tried waiting him out but eventually freaked myself out enough I just moved to the other side of the park. Better safe than sorry, right?  Especially if he wasn't really a cop. There are crazy people out there, certainly ones crazier than that heavily tattooed girl alone at the park taking pictures of herself! Hehe. Then it started to rain, and then I broke my remote. Blergh. But I was pretty pumped when I got home, went through the photos and realized I liked enough of them to post! So it's not all bad, always a silver lining.

  3. This dress is great on you, and I love it with the mustard tights! I would have moved too, in your situation (and that's why I usually take photos in my backyard -- I hate being watched!). Despite all the mishaps, these photos are lovely!

    1. It actually plugs into the camera, so it just dangles after I press the button. If you click the link in the post you can read more about it. :)

  9. Polka-dots look fabulous on you, as does purple hair! That's pretty creepy to hear about the individual in the uniform. I think you did the right thing by moving to the other side of the park!

  12. This is a gorgeous outfit and shoot. Your hair looks so dark around your face! Is the purple there actually darker or is it just because of the light?

    Also, I'm not sure if you've written about this anywhere (I've read your hair posts three times, so sorry if I missed it) but how often do you bleach your roots and recolour your hair? My hair is constantly coloured like yours, but yours puts mine to shame.

    1. It's actually darker.

      Um, bleach my roots? Maybe every month and a half? Recolour? Probably twice a month. Depends really.
