They say that September is a time to start fresh. Or maybe that's January... Well, at least in the fashion world, September's the big month. In semi-celebration of a new fashion-year (I'm totally making all this up as I go along, just by the way...) I have a new look for my blog - actual pictures! No longer leaning against a lame, beige wall. My sister and I went outside for a pretty "photoshoot" (taking amateur shots in my backyard doesn't qualify as that, surely). I'm doing it like the cool kids do! Haha. But it was actually quite fun, so I hope you guys enjoy the pictures. I debated limiting my writing for these new pictures, but I decided that I like talking to you guys. So yeah. Sorry it's boring. Thanks again for everyone who told me how to make big pictures! :) Sorry it's a little picture-heavy.
The sun and I have decided to fix our relationship, as I know it will only last a few more weeks. We have communicated, and I must embrace him for what he is. In result, I dressed sunnily.
I pretty much lack modelling skills by all means. My sister lacks directer skills. We honestly don't know what we're doing. We like to feign inspiration (seriously, we once went to a boring museum and did that for hours). Result? I am "inspired by the sun" as my sister directed...

Shoulder pads and huge hats are muchos fun! Admittedly, I was longing for my heart-shaped sunglasses.. Is that pathetic? Yes, probably.
My sister loves being in front of the camera. Literally. I bet that if you stalked her on facebook (please don't, that's, um, a little creepy), you'd find that she seems to pop into every good picture. Needless to say, I snapped several pictures of her and promised I would post one. I also promised I would give her credit. Behold, my 13-year-old photographer/sister. Happy, sis?

I like to pretend that I can take good photos on my little, pink digital camera. Flowers are my favourite. Please enjoy my lack of skills and refrain from insulting them :)
Hope you guys are enjoying the last of sunny weather! I know I'm ready for fall. Thanks for all the comments - if the internet holds up, I will definitely be visiting your blogs tonight! :) I will post an skirt tutorial (sorry for the delay!) - I would have had it ready, but my internet has been down all day. But soon. Comments on the photos? Or do you prefer the other ones? :)
