I nabbed this dress a while ago at a seriously sketchy thrift store. I wasn't sure if it would be wearable, and I'm still not sure. It's just a bit too...something...? I think it's maybe late 70's, but probably 80's.
I am definetly going to alter it somehow--for sure bring up the hem to knee length. I'm also toying with the idea of cutting the sleeves shorter or sleeveless., to make up for the so-high-it-will-choke-you-neck.
The stunning cat here is our outdoor cat, Sampson. He's got to be the most photogenic cat ever! And he totally knows it. :P
The shoot reminded me a bit of the beginning of Pride and Prejudice (the film with Keira Knightley), where she's walking through a field and the lightings all beautiful. Obviously, that was morning, and this was evening. Still...
My mom helped me take the pics. Unfortunatly she's not the greatest "fashion photographer"--always calling out to me to SMILE! and then gushing about how "this picture is soooo nice of you!" (and of course it's the one I dislike the most). Not to mention the gazillion shots of me talking, with my feet cut off, eyes closed, waving my arms...etc. I really, really, need a tripod.
so, in unfashion related news, right now I'm rather obsessed with Cleopatra and related subjects. I found "Cleopatra: Last Queen of Egypt" by Joyce Tylesdley at the library and have been engrossed in it. I feel like I'm starting to get a better picture of her life and the world around her at that time. Consquently, of course, I now want my wardrobe to look all Egypt-y...not happening, since I don't own anything even remotely Cleopatra-ish. And of course I'm now day-dreaming about traveling in Egypt...*sigh*.
So yeah. How are you guys? Hope your weekends are going fantasticly so far! :D
