Isn’t is crazy how much light can change the mood of a photo? The top set and the bottom set were taken at the exact time, place, and day, just in changed directions. I liked some from both sets, but I prefer the top ones (except for the lens flares…blah!)

I’ve always wanted to wear this shirt as a dress and for some reason have had yet to do it. The American Apparel Chiffon Oversized Button-Up is such a wardrobe staple that if you don’t have at least one or two of ’em, you’re missing out! It can be dressed up or down and paired with all sorts of bottoms.

I threw this on yesterday just to do my usual school-related tasks. I went to Open Drawing on my own accord. I’m so proud of myself, haha!

And just for opinions sake….I’m thinking about taking these shoes in to get dyed all black. I’d wear them so much more that way! How do you feel about that?

I really love this outfit with the jacket over top! Chiffon + leather[?] is such a edgy (but still feminine) pairing. I think it works great for you :)

And yes to the all black :D Though they are really unique on their own, I think they’ll get more use if dyed (as you said)

Thank you, Gina! Yeah, it’s faux leather…I love the two together :)

I’m even thinking about doing it myself but that might be a disaster. I’m gonna taken them into a cobbler for an estimate.
