Worst Post Ever?

I've been wanting to post an outfit for ages, but it seems like whenever I actually wear something worthy of presenting to the e-world, I have no one around to play photographer. The days of setting my camera on random objects and using a self-timer are behind me, and I don't have the money for a tripod. Today, finally, I knew my roommate would be around, so I decided it would be a good day to take pictures. Of course as soon as I got ready, the weather went crazy (I'm talking like, apocalypse). Neither of us were really up for leaving the house, but I went on the back porch for 30 seconds before giving up. Standing in front of trash cans with frizzy hair and wet shoes is not my idea of a good blog post. I included a separate picture of the dress, since we didn't even manage to get a good full-length shot. At least you can get a glimpse of my new lace leotard and Jeffrey Campbell 99 look-a-likes from Forever21. Real outfit coming on the next sunny day!

  7. if you are looking for a pocket/pursable tripod, try a gorillapod. you can wrap it around anything that stands still, and self-photograph away!

  18. I just ordered those wedges last nite, unbeknown to your post about them. Are they comfortable? Run true to size? Ive been looking for a great pair of oxford wedges for ages and these have the perfect look. just wish they were leather.

    Funny thing, i was chatting with Gabby/corazones rojos last nite and she asks me how the sizing is for f21 shoes and I immediately know she's asking me cuz of these wedges. ahaha get them now before they sell out!

    Love your outfit too!

  21. Oh, I so feel your pain. Rain and frizzy hair, do not mesh well. I love the shoes, and although there is a glimpse of you in the photo, you still look great even with the umbrella in hand. I love your blog and enjoy your daily posts.
    Thanks,
    Dana

  22. Those are cute shoes. You are adorable!

  23. Adorable dress. I love the puff sleeves.

    I'm able to take self photos by using my Gorillapod. It's a small flexible tri-pod that attaches to the base of your digital camera, and has flexible legs that you can wrap around most anything. I wrap them around my tall, wrought iron book case, put my camera on self timer, step back, pose and take the shot. I usually take several shots of an outfit and keep the ones I like, delete the ones I don't.

  27. Ugh blogger ate my comment I think! I love this outfit on you SO much and I should be receiving those wedges in the mail on tuesday! I got a pair of 8s but they are too small to be comfortable, Im glad I ordered my 9s when I did because they are all gone!!

  28. ahhh! why are you so cute? pass a little of that around. i really like this outfit. i found a aqua colored dress that looked like this a few weeks ago and i didn't get it cause i didn't think i could make it work, but now you've inspired me. i've been wanting me some F21 wedges like those, but alas, they ran out of my size. lucky.

  29. Okay, for one that is actually the cutest outfit ever and I think the fact that it was raining added character to the outfit. It makes it look totally quirky and spontaneous. Also totally jealous of your style. Love your blog.

    Btw totally featured your blog in my blog. Keep posting, YFAF for life.
