As much love as I have for digital photography, there will always be something incredibly fun about using disposable cameras and Polaroid film. Something about these sorts of pictures feels much more permanent than the photos that you can take twenty versions of, edit into oblivion, and drag into your recycle bin. Sylvia took these pictures with a disposable camera after a literary magazine meeting last week. Sadly a few of them came out pretty distorted, but I really like these two.
Vintage beaded silk blouse, Target shorts, random belt, Hue tights, ancient Ann Taylor oxfords (not pictured)
These pictures do not do complete justice to this blouse, so I might have to drag it out again sometime. It drapes beautifully and has the most incredible beading on it. I have deemed it my holiday shirt - it feels very festive to me!
Speaking of festive, with the wintery months approaching quickly comes my desire for sleek, sparkly holiday clothes. I might be getting a little ahead of myself - November literally just began, after all - but looking at all these dresses on the Forever 21 website has made me so excited for twinkly strings of Christmas lights and snow on the ground!
I love, love, love the leopard print one in particular, but any of these would satisfy my craving for a posh little dress in a sleek shade of black or grey. And, of course, what better to pair with an elegant holiday frock than these...
I love that Forever 21 is doing Doc Martens knockoffs. Now that I own my first pair of Docs, I have not stopped thinking about expanding my collection! The Clothes Horse recently debuted this pair, and I am completely in love with them. They are the perfect counterpoint to delicate dresses, don't you think?
I think that if the only gifts I ever received in the future were gift cards to Forever 21, I would be the happiest girl alive. (Remember that, people!)
