dressed up like a lady: Candy striper

Jun 29, 2008

Candy striper

I don't often smile in blog pictures, because unless there's something there to make me laugh, it's just going to look fake, right? And nobody likes that. But lucky for this shot, my boyfriend acted silly and I cracked up for real, even striking an impossibly dainty pose in the process.

Shoes: vintage via the Getup
Bag: vintage via Star Vintage






I also lucked out by finding this cute little toad. I picked him up and he promptly peed on me, thus ending the shoot, but it's always fun to find a little friend outdoors.

  10. That dress looks great on you! I love how feminine it is. And you're so right about the smiling thing. It's so hard not to look fake unless you're actually laughing when the photo is taken. So props to your bf!

    Why do toads always pee when you pick them up? Is it a defense mechanism, are they just scared to death or both?

  12. Yknw, my mother always told me since I was young that someone will pull the tube/halter dresses down that I am so afraid to wear them now!!

    But, you look AMAZING in that! The shape of the dress is so pretty & fits you so well. I love the pictures with the toad, you are so pretty!

  22. The strapless corset dress is such a brilliant piece! You look always very lovely whether smile or not... I am the worst coming to this. I find smiling can be hard, like you said.


    P.S. Thank you for your lovely comments all the time. I really didn't mean to wear them to pick strawberries... that was purely coincident. I was supposed to arrive my mate's house by then. However, I'm really glad you like it xxxxxxx

  32. Fantastic dress, it looks like it was made just for you! Cute pics with the frog as well - frogs need support, too! Puppies and kitties and the fuzzier animals can't get ALL the love. :P
