The Magical Key to Daily Outfit Photos!

March 13, 2010

I finally returned the (accidently bought) monopod for an actual tripod! I’ve found that not having to rearrange half my room to stack up random furniture and objects to use as a camera stand, has given me more motivation to take photos of what I’m wearing. It’s so easy to just pop my cammy wham on the tripod and take a photo. I’m just sad that i didn’t get it sooner, because I’ve had much more interesting recent outfits to document. But I want to take a picture everyday, so here are some less intesting ones. Well, I like yesterday’s, but today’s is lacking since I took a shower too late and didn’t have much outfit-choosing time.

Sweater: Rue 21, $13
Shirt: Goodwill, $3.50
Skirt: Paul& Joe for Target (via Goodwill), $3.50
Necklace: Urban Outfitters (via The Rugged Wearhouse), $3
Shoes: K Mart, $8


Shirt: Forever 21 a long time ago, $4?
Skirt: Goodwill, $3.50
Belt: Goodwill, $1
Necklace: Gift
Shoes: Goodwill, $2

I had these earrings once that I got from the hippie store in the mall (you know, robust patchoulli scent, the caveman cashier looks like be can rip up some bongos, the Bob Marley belt buckles are under a glass case, etc.) but they were carved from wood and one broke. I was eternally sad. Until one day at the craft store I was looking at the huge plethora of Sculpey colors, and thought, “Shit son! I can make those earrings myself!” (I may or may not have said this out loud.) So here is my sad attempt-

I was strangely attracted to this color. it’s called pale pistachio.
