Forest Nymph 3.0

As I've described, summer thus far has been rather, well, laaaazzy. (Exaggerated letters is a meager attempt at personifying such laziness.) (But, hey, I went outside today! For a haircut! And I'm outside right now! Non-lazy points for me! Booo yeah!) But I've actually accomplished quite a few little projects here and there which will slowly trickle onto da blog for your viewing pleasure (brain freeze... where does the term "viewing pleasure" show up a lot? T.V. Shows? It really urks me when I say a term or quote something and I can't recall where it came from. HO HUM SOMETHING TO PONDER.) . One of these "little projects" includes a RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF PHOTOSHOOTS with my sister. It's really hilarious. We look like such narcissists to the naked eye. I'd be scared of us. If I weren't, you know, us.

Er... Anyways! Before I show you some of the new things - another summer goal: photograph as many things I've sewn as I can - here's the final installation of our "forest nymph" shoot. Hope you enjoy!

Photography and Styling - Me (Lexy)
Model - Sister (Mimi)

Outfit 1
I'm a little over the "soft meets hard" look but, whatever, I'm a hypocrite and I present you the princess/rock look. (Aw yeah for hypocrisy!) On a sort of related note, I LOVE long gloves and I'm still on the hunt for the perfect white ones. (Find some? Send them to me? Love you? Love you.)

Sequin Dress worn as top - H&M, Seafoam Tutu - Homemade, Lilac tights - H&M, Socks - AEO, Shoes - Fleuvog Shoes, Jewelry - Assorted

Outfit 2:
Last set of photos. And, dundundundunnnn (it's supposed to be humming in a happy-suspense-with-the-final-sound-going-up, as opposed to humming in a scary-suspense-with-the-final-sound-going-down) as promised the fabulous Rodarte dress! I think that's all I need to say, really...

Shaky effect was due to the weather going down, but I kind of like it. It reminds me of X-RAYS or ULTRASOUNDS. You probably thought that too. Obviously. (Okay FINE, it's kind of a weird thought. But THINK ABOUT IT.)

(That was weird.)
(Speaking of weird, what's up with Taylor Momsen? Just ew.)
(Speaking of weird, what's up with the weather? Wonky weather leads to descreased in creative dressing, leading to decrease in outfit posts. WAIT DON'T FRET. There will be one soon! Very soon!)
(Speaking of weird... your face is weird. HAH.)

...I thought of X-rays and ultrasounds too. So don't worry. We're either both completely nutters, or totally sane. Either way. :/ Awesome photos!

WTF is wrong with Taylor. I mean, really. REALLY. REALLY REALLY REALLY? Really.

The styling is really great and the setting for the photographs is wonderful - I love forest type shoots! I am so jealous that you have the Rodarte dress!! Being from Ireland it obviously was never available here (like so many other things!) but that did not stop me lusting over it every chance I got!
Your sister looks really cute - not in a baby way, in a fun young fresh way.
Thanks so joining our thread on Chictopia - the blog directory and for checking out our blog.
