I wanted to participate in the FLORAL challenge for EBEW aka Everybody Every Wear on May 10th but stuff happened and I wasn't able to, so I decided just to take some outfit photos in what I had planned and post them to my blog anyway. I shamefully used our little dog Viggo to increase the cute factor and get more attention that way haha. What can I say wherever we take the little guy he's like a chic magnet.
I just adore the floral pattern and colors in this dress and it gave me an opportunity to wear my new Swedish Hasbeens that I got for 50% percent off at Modcoth during the secret shopper sale a few weeks ago. AND it also gave me the opportunity to show off my winter skin in a whiter shade of pale ;=P Yeah we need to get the boat put in and start enjoying the sun -- if Mother Nature makes up her mind and decides that Spring or Summer - whichever - is here to stay awhile. Please forgive my messy bun I didn't have time to do anything exciting with my hair.
My darling photographically challenged husband, Rick, took these photos. It continues to be a bit aggravating coaching him from afar and trying to pose at same time but I do believe he's starting to understand my camera and heavy zoom lens and he's getting better at holding it steady and waiting for it to focus before he takes the shot. One of these days I'll be able to afford the $300-500 tripod I need and I'll be able to do it myself. In the meantime he's doing okay at it and I should avail myself of the help because he'll get tired and disinterested soon and then I'll be on my own.
