A few years ago I started this blog as a networking and promotional tool for the vintage shop I was opening. Last night while R and I were working on some rebranding materials, he asked me what my blog is for now. While I still think it is important networking and promotional tool, this blog has also really become a favorite creative outlet of mine. Since our recent move to a new town, I have actually liked going out to explore new photo locations and my tripod has again become more of a buddy and less of a dreaded necessity. All that to say... I know these photos are strange, but sometimes I really like to not only use this blog to show "what I'm wearing", but also get to express a bit of creativity through it!

Down the road from our new place is this giant abandoned sugar mill. Even closer are these open fields with strange abandoned concrete patches and sand piles. Most people think the mill is an eye sore, but I actually find places that these "leftover" places beautiful. I thought it would be a fun contrast to shoot a colorful feminine outfit in this strange mix of industrial and wild. The effects are pretty but definitely eery.
On a more sartorial note, orange is definitely not one of my usual favorite colors, but when Taylor offered up this pretty textured dress for swap, I couldn't pass it up! I paired it with a beautiful hand beaded necklace from Dus's fair trade shop Mitla Moda, along with my favorite meowmaid pin and a flower crown I made. Dus said this necklace reminded her of my pink wig, so I of course had to throw that on too to complete the crazy sorbet colored party!
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
