I have an obsession with sunglasses. Glenn doesn’t understand this obsession. Mostly, he just rolls his eyes. When I saw this pair of Gasoline Glamour sunnies, I had to have them! Although, like always, I waited until they were on sale. Less then $40 AUD on Nastygal.com.
This was one of the first time I’d really noticed the impact that matching shoes can have. I haven’t allowed myself to think about it that much because I’m on a teeny income. I bought three pairs from Target before I went to a conference before realizing that I’d bought them all a size too small!
These red ones are rather comfortable though. I hate having to think about shoes all the time though.
The dress is City Chic. I was a fan of how the style looked but don’t think it suits my body shape. It’s a lovely style but the collar made me feel like I was choking (I have anxiety issues – it’s not a manufacturing problem.) It clung to my belly so I looked like I was pregnant. Maybe I just need to style it differently?
The pineapple bag is available from Nasty Gal, but I was lucky enough to find a similar version on Ebay. Very impractical, but I love it.
It was a fun shoot. I’d tried taking these photos using a tripod and timer a week prior, and screwed all of them up. Glenn had to take these photos which always makes me self conscious. He respects my discomfort though and uses the same tricks to get me to smile.
It’s weird. These photos almost look like that are somebody else. I know they are me, but they don’t look like me. I’ve changed so much over the past year and have become more confident with my sense of style. It’s awesome.
