dressed up like a lady: I'm late for everything.

Jul 28, 2009

I'm late for everything.

I meant to post a review of my second pair of glasses -- ones from the intriguing Glassesusa.com. But then I deleted the pictures before I uploaded them. Oops.

So that review will have to wait. In the meantime, here's another long delayed post. I actually captured this outfit twice -- first, my most excellent coworker (who happens to be a photographer) Sean Brennan took some gorgeous shots for me with his professional grade gear. But no sooner did he give me a disc with the pics, than I busted my only access to an optical drive. So the disc sat and waited for me to get a new laptop, and in the meantime, I wore the outfit again! So now we have two different backdrops for the price of one!


50's Wiggle Dress: Vintage via the Getup
Beauty Case, Gloves, Jewelry: Vintage via the Getup
Shoes: Seychelles


Sean is the bomb, and the hypersaturation is my own heavy handed work.

This second batch immortalizes the former home of the best Tex Mex in Ann Arbor. They had to change locations, but hear this: Tios, your awesome undersea mural will be missed!


How's this last pic for a bummer -- two now dead symbols of Ann Arbor: the old Tios' building, and signage for the recently defunct Ann Arbor News. Frownies all around. I'm going to watch some kitten videos and get my spirits back up.
