Happy Surprise






Really on a roll with the posting over this week - this morning I woke to another care package from American Apparel with this fantastic lace insert jumper and it gave me such a buzz I had to run upstairs and  make a feature. I'm sure you all know by now how much I love clothing that is both stylish and could double as pyjamas. Feeling a bit quirky this morning, I was whirling and flailing around like a maniac while taking these shots (which didnt work) and then cracking up at the idea of someone on their way to work seeing me in all my absurdity through the glass door on the roof. I'm actually pretty self conscious about the idea of someone spotting me...

Why on earth is that girl taking photos of herself thrashing around?

I looove the green hat and the red jumper together. Red and green is such an awesome, underrated color combo (too bad most people immediately associate it with Christmas).
The pink converse are a cute touch too!

Um, I was taking photos in the park once with my long-suffering husband/photographer and a couple of gay guys spotted us on their walk and cat-called "heeeeyyyy! Linda Evangelista!" Don't think I'll ever recover from that one.

Enya said...

Loooooove the jumper!
I am like that too, why the hell does the two people over there taking strange pictures?
We should just don't care about what other people might think. You are only having fun, right?

Anonymous said...

This outfit is just perfect! I adore it! Congrat' girl cause you're such a genius!
I also really like your hat, a green hat is something not commun. But the red, the green and the black.... that just so perfect! I'm gonna steal my boyfriend's U-NI-TY hat to do the same look.
Thanks for all these good ideas!

Jenni said...

Why do I always end up being really jealouse when I read your blog. :D
I mean I would like to have all your clothes, they're just so gorgeous. And that jumper just stole my heart. Too bad that I dont have an American Apparel store anywhere near.

By the way I love your photos. Are you thinking photography as a career? :)

I really like the photography here!!great pics

The Lady Nerd said...

The third photo is my favourite. You have such a perfect face/body for relaxed seated poses.

Ah, gawkers, gotta love 'em. I remember reading a story where something similar happened to James Cameron's crew on Avatar (albeit not on a photoshoot, but filming). A truck driver in Hawaii was driving past when he saw the crew running around the woods in just ears and tails with Cameron running behind them with a small camera. The driver called Sam Worthington over and asked what the heck was going on. He explained they were shooting some behind-the-scenes footage for Avatar. The trucker shook his head and said, "Wow, he's dropped far."

All that say, gawker impressions aren't everything. So go thrash away! :)
