Every outfit post can't just show you the perfect. As much as I love to doll up for the camera, I find it important to share the less than perfect photos with you too. Maybe to set an example for some of my friends and bloggers to just do it. Don't wait for the mood to strike you, don't put off blogging until you get a better camera: just get out there and do it. It's really simple. Dress, document and share.
I had 20 minutes until I had to leave for work yesterday. It was 1 o'clock in the afternoon, the absolute worst time to take photos. Since I was short on time, I didn't have a minute to spare to scout out or search out a pristine location. These photos were shot in the less than lovely back alley behind my apartment. The alley is weedy, shabby and over grown.
And still I find all sorts of things to inspire me. Like these weedy pink morning glory winding up a telephone pole. No water, barely any soil, and still an abundance of bloom. There was even a morning glory plant sprouting out of a crack in the cement! Nothing but nothing can discourage life.
I too, perhaps am a weed. I don't always find myself in ideal situations, but I always make the best of it. My wardrobe is overflowing with bright and patterned second-hand clothes. I am a stranger to "it' bags, expensive shoes and designer labels. And still I flourish.
This is me in my outfit that I wore to work. The photos are over exposed. The outfit is super casual. The highlight is my rad new glittery gold tote bag that I got recently from my dear friend Jemina, who sent this to me from Singapore! What a lovely and thoughtful gift, girlfriend! Thank you so much!
