I'll Take You to The Dump, 'Cause You're My Queen.

Currently Listening to:
"Garbage Truck" by Beck

(A is for Audrey dress borrowed from Molly, my White | Black "Sweet Nothings" convertable clutch/purse, thigh-high F21 tights altered by me, F21 suedette platform mary-jane pumps, and the hair feather fascinator + veil was a gift from Jeanatte :D)

Today I had my shoot with Jeanatte and let me tell you: It. Was. A. Blast! I love getting together with Jeanatte, she's so much fun and again, super, super talented. That lady makes magic with her nikon and home studio and husband, Phil, who is sometimes made to hold reflectors for us when propping it against a computer chair doesn't work. Lol! We only shot for about an hour and a half, but we still ended up with a ton of great photos, and I'm so excited and anxious to see them finished! Jeanatte did send me a teaser from today's shoot! I was actually messing around and being a goofball when I struck the pose, but it ended up being one of our favorites! Funny how that works, huh? :}

She also gave me a couple of gorgeous hair flower fascinators that she'd originally bought to shoot with, but didn't end up using them - cuz she knows I'm a sucker for fun, pinup-inspired accessories! After we shot, we just chillaxed for a little bit and caught up, before I headed back to my side of town for lunch at my mom's restaurant. Then I went home and snapped these outfit shots for you guys real quick, before I took a much-needed and well-deserved napped! Lol! All in all, I was feeling kind of Moulin Rouge/vintage showgirl in this outfit for some reason.

I borrowed the dress, which I LOVE, from my friend Molly. She has the most amazing closet. (I could seriously shop in that thing for hours!) Even more so than the color and the adorable rose print, I think my favorite thing about this dress is the cut/shape. It's very curve-hugging and figure-flattering and I love the swag of the pockets that jet out from the hips. It creates even more of an hour-glass shape, and really accentuates the hips. It's a great shape for curvy girls!

Anyhoo... It's bed time for this gal! I wish you all a good night and sweet dreams <3

  1. Hello gorgeous girl! Your fascinator is very bewitching! I love the colour combination of grey and red. I'm mentally going through what I can wear to replicate the grey and red!

  2. You look sooooooooooooooooo fantastic in jus about anything.
    The flowery dress, the shoes and that fascinator are to die for.
    You are far beyond words my dear friend.
