lapel pin - Asilda Store
shoes - Blowfish Shoes (a few years back)
Can we talk about something super random right now instead of how awesome this dress is and how killer it looks with my hair? But seriously my hair and this dress? Perfection! One of my biggest pet peeves ever is how in horror movies a character will have a minor injury and let it get them killed. It's like it's not believable and it drives me insane. Clearly the fact that there are zombies or something should be the point of "it's not believable!" for me but when a character twists their ankle and then all of a sudden can't run anymore I just get mad. Good. I'm glad you're getting eaten!
The day I took these photos I was feeling a little creeped out. The last time I had been to this spot to take pictures I had seen someone coming out of the bushes unexpectedly and it scared the pants off me. It was just a construction worker, totally harmless. It's a bit of a remote location though and I'm a massive chicken when I'm alone. I don't exactly like being surprised. As I was finishing up taking photos someone a little too close for comfort started setting off fireworks so I folded up my tripod and started climbing the short hill back to the car. I always feel so silly walking out of the weeds and back to my car. Just a girl in a pretty dress emerging from this kind of shady area alone, NBD. I was walking quickly because I was a bit tense. The same kind of tense as when you turn off the lights in the basement and run up the stairs full speed, you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, the pavement was uneven and I rolled my ankle. It hurt so darn bad, and because my shoes are open on the top it scraped up the top of my foot and my ankle something nasty. I didn't even take one second to go acknowledge the pain, I just continued speed walking back to the car. After I sat down I thought "you know what, I'd survive a horror movie!" and in that moment I was proud of something that absolutely did not matter. Although I'm pretty sure if I were in a horror movie I'd probably actually die because I ran so far and so fast by myself. Haha!
