Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post







What I’m Wearing
* J Brand light wash skinny jeans …
* Victoria’s Secret lace crossover caplet …lingerie.. ..seen here
* Twenty8Twelve jacket …also …and photos never do it justice. …seen here
* Pink Victorian neck piece …my own DIY HERE
* Dolce Vita leather boots …last seen here
* Vintage Gucci satchel


Lately I’ve been trying to prepare my outfit posts the day before so as to reduce my morning stress and up until today, it has worked out swimmingly …meaning, I don’t think anyone noticed. But yesterday afternoon there was a storm brewin’ making it uber difficult to get a decent shot. I found a really great spot to shoot but they all came out too dark. So, deciding to fill up my car with gas, I took an alternate route and found the sky to be an amazing backdrop …even though they are dark as well {I hate the first shot but have no other option for the entire look with the jacket}.

After leaving the gas station, to avoid traffic, I went back the way I came and as I turned the corner onto the street, the sky in the opposite direction was bright pink. I stopped my car in the middle of the street and propped my camera on it and with the headlights on, ran out in front of it and got some amazing shots of the sky. Although I can’t really take credit …it was all nature …well, and smog.

The photo directly above with the dark blue sky I darkened …but the pink skies I did not edit at all! Amazing! ….see more here at flickr

    I think you are bad-ass and brave to pose in the middle of a street with the headlights of your car on. I think I have no shame but you kick my ass. Love it.
