Mr sun-sun, Mr golden sun...

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...

(Blouse - Thrifted <$1, Skirt - Thrifted $5, Belt - "Pacific Mall" $10, Shoes - Keds, Hat - F21 $14)

Close-up of the patterns


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?

(Shirt - F21 [ahem, my ex-shirt!], shorts - old navy, belt - thrifted]

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? :)

There are definitely no models at my house either :) I like to pretend that I have a SLR camera and take photos of my street but when the photo comes out it sucks. HARD.

I love that blouse. Jealous as always.

Kristin said...

I think your modeling skills are quite perfect!

Are you still stuck with summer weather and heat? Apparently here in Massachusetts the weather has decided to skip the last weeks of a season and go straight into fall! Of course for me..that's not really a bad thing because I LOVE FALL! Your flower photos are astounding! I love the picture you took of them from below. I like how now you have the big pictures and took it to the backyard! LOL. A bit(actually a lot) creative! I like how you and your sister are so tight, because me and my oldest sister are the same way! Your outfit kind of reminds me of Minnie(I think that's how you spell it) Mouse! Really cute! Loving the post like always! Actually talking about change...go check out the change done to my blog and please let me know what you think!
