Scottie Dogs & Polka Dots
Greetings! I don't know about you fellow fashion bloggers, but it took me a LONG time to get used to posing with "just me" for a camera. I still have my moments of resistance, but lately I've been having a TON of fun with outfit shoots. As I've mentioned before, it's been a rough road I've traveled on as of the past few years. Lately I've finally been able to channel an inner happiness from my complete making, regardless of external forces. If something good is happening, great, then that just adds to my life! If something less than fun pops up, then that sucks and I take a few minutes to process, but I do my best with a 99% success rate to just bounce back and look within to be happy. This has definitely translated into taking outfit photos. I've just been opting to have fun and geek out with it, regardless of how subconscious I feel, how many people are walking by or if it's threatening to rain and what have you. I think it's made an improvement in my pictures; perhaps I'm biased but I've been liking my photos a lot more lately! Do you guys love taking photosets for blog posts or does it more often than not feel silly to you?
Since the belt that came with this skirt is a polka dot print, I opted to go full on polka dot for the rest of the outfit. This shirt is from Forever 21, but believe it or not it's from the year 2006!! I don't wear it too often anymore, but I saw it in my closet and immediately thought it should be paired with this skirt. I have these wedges I got from Marshalls two years ago that tied in perfectly, along with these B&W polka dot sunglasses my mom gave to me. Even my necklace (from H&M) are circular so it somewhat fits with the motif! Rounding it off I added my NicCoco Creations pink flower that I got from Unique Vintage.
I got this skirt on sale at ModCloth, but it's currently sold out. That said, it still is on sale at Unique Vintage. The reviews have been somewhat scathing because it cited as running a bit small. I'm usually a XS in this brand (Hell Bunny) but they listed the waist on UV as a 24 inch waist, and all reviews said it was way too small in all sizes so I sized up with a size Small. I think I'm glad I did...but I'm also glad this has a belt for this alleged 26 inch waist skirt (my true waist size). It's not big...but it's also not tight or even a perfect fit. I suppose if I had risked an XS that may have been too tight, so I have no regrets. Regardless, I'm glad to have this skirt in my collection because not only do I seem to have an unending amount of polka dots in my wardrobe, I also love collecting dog prints as a life long dog lover!!
