Skirt? Joe Fresh Shirt? Black Rainn, Winners Shoes? Mea Shadow (here, for a lot more than I paid for them), Winners Purse? Tignanello, thrifted Silk Scarf and bangles? Thrifted (one bangle came undone mid shoot...)
This is one of the very few times I asked my crew to re-shoot an outfit. In the morning we happened to take pictures in the 5 minutes of dark calm before a thunderstorm. We just ignored the lightning that started (don't worry, we were safe... I had my least favourite assistant hold a metal umbrella in the clearing) but then realized later that every shot was grainy because of the intense cloud cover. So we took the minute of time we had in the afternoon (when it got sunny and warm... it felt like... what is that thing called? Oh ya! Spring! ) and took pictures as lots of people walked by and stared.
Usually I am not crazy like that. I try to avoid lightning strikes and prying eyes but I had to put The Blog first today. The biggest risk I take on a regular day is not vacuuming the cat hair off the stairs and taking the chance that company might just drop in. I also like taking risks at Winners sometimes... I visited these shoes many times over the last months, patiently waiting for the price to fall from $129 to $25. Some people bungee jump while I wait for price drops. Who's exciting now, huh?
