sweater, ring- thrifted
skirt- TJMaxx (Adrienne Vittadini)
boots- Fred Flare
I set up the pictures in my "studio" upstairs. As you can see, it's pretty jankity, but it works! What I really need is some hardwood floors, a background stand that isn't broken, and good background paper. I bought the background set-up before I learned that you get what you pay for. Luckily I didn't skimp on the lights though.
Back to the clothes...I got that skirt when I was in Cincinnati for a conference. It was in the sale section at a TJMaxx, and the print+metallic combo made it impossible for me to resist. You can't see it really well in the picture, but it does have gold threads in it, so it's quite shiny. I'm like a child in my love of shiny things. I'm immediately drawn to the heavily sequined, shiny threaded items. Maybe everyone is, I am just one of the few who actually picks them up and buys them. Shiny may be gaudy, but I love it. The shinier the better!
