I did that today. I woke up early, put on a pretty red dress I bought yesterday at Savers for $6, went to a secluded park and braved the cold for a fun photoshoot. I really enjoyed myself.
The shoes, you may remember, were a gift last month from Loren.
The photos, of course, were taken by me, all by myself, with a tripod.
I would have used a camera! ;-)ReplyDelete
Awwwww Ally my dahlin' ... gorgeous gorgeous ... I love it, you look fabulous.ReplyDelete
OMG! I love these pics. You look so happy and the dress is cute. And I will never grow out of dressing up! hahaReplyDelete
Wow, that is commitment: Waking up early, going just for a photo shoot and wearing a summer dress in the cold.ReplyDelete
Totally paid off though cause the background is great and the poses are so fun. The dress is super cute.
Too bad it was cold... You look like you were having a great time! Glad the pictures don't lie about that!ReplyDelete
Aww your look like you're having so much fun! But brr! Kudos for braving the cold. I know it's gotta be chilly out there. Nothing like a red dress to make you feel glamorous, huh?ReplyDelete
I love it! It's great to see you venturing beyond your backyard.ReplyDelete
Great shoot! A little bit of summer in these cold days. The dress is lovely, you look great in it.ReplyDelete
Yes, Diana, "venturing beyond [my] backyard" was a big part of the thrill. I wanted desperately to be outdoors so I could jump and play like a kid. Certainly, it took courage for me to carry my girly stuff to the park and shoot there.ReplyDelete
And yes it was cold! But I was so excited I didn't even feel it in my summer dress.
Gorgeous! However, eek I'm super cold. You are braving that weather like a champ. The color of the dress is so festive and the shoes are a perfect match.ReplyDelete
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.ReplyDelete
The color red and dots are so fun, and it's looks like you're having just that. The jump is perfection. You rock.
ADORABLE! I should do this soon.ReplyDelete
I feel like a jerk for not commenting lately. I've been reading as usual, but keeping quiet because of time constraints. First, I'm so glad you enjoyed the dress I sent. I NEVER would have thought it would look so adorable with green! Its so mermaid-esque, especially with the gold shoes. I mean, really great color combo you put together. But I knew that you would. You've got a good eye for styling bright colors.ReplyDelete
The top picture of this post is SO SO SO joyful, I smiled just looking at it. Its so lovely and happy. I sincerely hope that you were as happy as you look in the photo.
i have those days too when i just want to relax and do something just because! glad you had fun :)!ReplyDelete
Very cute! And brave! When dreams come true, it feels like magic! :)ReplyDelete
You know, Ally - I think it may be time for you to get yourself a very smart and stylish coat. The winter light is very beautiful and would make for some more lovely outdoor photos ;)ReplyDelete
I've got to echo Diana. Glad to see you outside, being yourself.
That red dress is the cutest.
Fuzzy, thanks for the suggestion. You know, by coincidence, I came to the same conclusion this week. I went to Savers Friday (when I bought this dress) specifically to look for a cute coat. They didn't have any, except for a nice PINK leather jacket that, as much as I loved it, I couldn't imagine when I could wear it. For fashion, I want something big and fluffy, like expensive coats I saw at Fox's in Huntington Village last week but for less money.ReplyDelete
very nice pics and dress. i really love the first shot. so feminine!ReplyDelete
You take such good photos Ally! I love the dress, it is a perfect match for those shoes. Glad to see you out having fun, everyone needs to do that once in awhile.ReplyDelete
Cuuuute! I hope you don't catch a cold (she said, sniffling into a cup of ginger tea with honey)...ReplyDelete
How very cute - i like your pictures and i MUST SAY you have the greatest legs and I NEED to get me a camera....ReplyDelete
OMG that dress was six bucks?! How come my Savers never has adorable dresses like this in stock?!ReplyDelete
You look ADORABLE!!
I love the how much fun you are having!! You look great & these photos are awesome.ReplyDelete
That is really adorable. :) Not in a dorky way, I know people have weird ideas about the words adorable or cute, but "adorable" is the first word that springs to mind.ReplyDelete
These pictures are superb! So much fun! I think you've found the perfect dress for Loren's shoes! :)ReplyDelete
That first pic made me smile so big. I LOVE THAT DRESS. It's vintagey and modern at the same time. Totally looks like something you could have paid $60 for from Mod Cloth...cannot believe how lucky you got finding it for $6!!! Aaaaaand...you went to a park!! You are seriously making the moves towards stepping out and presenting in public...wow!ReplyDelete
