Sweater interlude

Sweater: Thrifted
Multi-colored sequin dress: Cheap, offbrand, purchased for high school dance 15 years ago
Shoes: Nine West
Rhinestone earrings: Vintage, Xmas gift from mom
Rounded wayfarer sunglasses: Giant vintage

We've had some chilly mornings lately. I'm praying for one more heat wave before autumn, but it's novel to need a sweater in the morning. Anyway, I bought this dress for a high school dance a million years ago, but I didn't actually end up wearing it because I opted to color coordinate with my date instead. Because that's smart. I wore it to a party that year, but it eventually went into more than a decade of storage in a suitcase at my parents' house. I discovered it recently and couldn't resist putting it into action.

I must admit that as a photographer, I don't know how well I can replicate the circumstances that create those light orbs that float around Cammila in some of these shots. I know the conditions when I see them, and maybe that's as good as light orbs get. I also suspect that Cammila generates them with her inherently magical ways. Incidentally, the magic that happens when Cammila puts on this cheap but undeniably awesome dress she bought for a homecoming dance at age 16 is also quite palpable.  -MC 


  1. I ♥ ♥ ♥ your sequin dress..won't replace it with anything else..

    I'm following you! Wanna follow me back?

  2. Love this outfit, that is the perfect baggy sweater! Pinning it!

  3. I wish I could still fit into all my high school clothes. Not that I would actually want to wear all those cargo pants today. But fitting into them would be nice.

  4. I wanna see the WHOLE thing! It looks like a sequin oil slick! :)

    I like the beige sweater / bright sequin combo, not something I would have naturally put together myself, but it looks fab!


  5. I am totally jels that you fit into a dress you wore in high school. And you look great in it still!

  6. This is the kind of thing you wear that really amazes me because I would never think to make this combo but it looks totally chic and perfect, I love it.
