Technicolor


Sylvia (who, by the way, has a delightful new blog that you should all visit immediately!) and I ended up doing a little impromptu photoshoot after school and before Our Town rehearsal today. The Liberace jacket strikes again!

We actually started with the idea to take pictures by my deliciously creepy shed, but my favorite photos were the ones Sylvia took by this pretty red-leafed tree in the very corner of my backyard.

I love the quality of this photo, like a still from a glamorous old movie. The sunlight was so perfect and crisp and autumnal today, and it turned everything all sparkly.

I couldn't resist throwing some leaves in the air. And some smiling pictures for once! When Sylvia photographs me, I can't help it. She's my favorite photographer.

This shot and the next one are possibly the most colorful photographs of myself I have ever seen (and yes, I edited them a bit, but still). They feel like something out of The Secret Garden or Willy Wonka. I love how warm and saturated and technicolor everything looks. The leaves are hot pink!

Vintage jacket and camisole, Forever 21 skirt, gifted tights, vintage suede and cork wedges, earrings from Portobello Road in London

I know you've seen most of these pieces before, but challenging myself to find fresh ways to wear old things (and then sharing them with you) is what keeps blogging and getting dressed in the morning exciting for me!

That said, I have many unfulfilled fantasies regarding my fall wardrobe. Currently I am lusting for a sequined blazer (I have seen a great one from H&M that I am dying to get my hands on), little bodycon skirts, jewel toned tights, colorful blazers, a cozy circle scarf, a warm pair of ankle length leggings... the list goes on and on. What are you craving for the colder months?

Why, thank you! This made me so happy. Your outfit is so wonderful and compliments the nature fantastically. In any case, I like the shots you chose! (And you, my dear, are my favorite model.)

Little Monarch said...

the bright ruby reds in the tree are stunning! After reading your post on crazy legs I went out to marks and spencer and bought myself a pair of forest green tights. I love them and have just realised that rich earthy tones like green and aubergine really suit me. you are an inspiration!

Rina said...

Georgia said...

Little bodycon skirts? I just use plain vest tops instead of an acutal skirt, and I even layer them. (Trampy I know)

I love those tights, I really want a darker version of those

It would be mine

Oh, what beautiful photos, what a beautiful outfit, what a beautiful lady. I'm really tempted to actually print out one of these photos and hang it on my door for the pure beauty, but that would be a little odd, no?

I want more high waisted wide legged pants, high waisted painted skinny jeans, a high waisted pencil skirt, and high waisted leggings. Can you tell that I am pissed off at low rise bottoms right now?
