Late night watching Hello Dolly, one of my movies. I felt inspired to take some photos last night, which I haven't done in a long time. Nor have I taken any photos in my new apartment! Now I really didn't have an outfit that was straight out of Hello Dolly, but I've had the really pretty green dress for some time now I bought and just haven't worn yet. There's a line in the movie, saying that if Horace Vandergelder had any sense, he'd repaint the shutters forest green. Its a key point in the movie, that they reference at the end. So pulling my inspiration from that, I threw on my favorite "lady" shoes and gloves.
Before I settled with lighting and everything, I took a few test shots,
this one actually came out nice. The lighting in my room is really nice,
I didn't have to use the big over head light.
The metal purse in this photo belonged to my great grandmother from my dad's side. Its from the 20's and so pretty, I have 2 of them.
I never think to take photos of the accessories or anything like that when I do outfit photos, but I didn't forget this time! Also, the gold necklace, was my great grandmothers on my moms side. I love incorperating these special pieces into my outfits.
I am slowly getting back into blogging, which is awesome. Ive also been painting a lot too lately, since I have an art show coming up in October. I took a bunch of time off this month because there is so much going on! My uncle Doug with be up here in 2 weeks! We'll be going to a Sox game and to all the nice places to eat. Ill show him around JP and bring him by the Behan. Not only will he be visiting, my good friend Jean-Michel will be coming from Montreal and staying with me that weekend as well, and bringing 4 other Canadians with him hahaha.The JP music fest is this weekend and then the Ronnie Dial golf tournament is the 24th! September is chalk full of exciting things! Stay tuned.
