Since all of my old press-quality portraits show my old haircut, I begged Husband Mike to do a new shoot. And the man delivered. Here are a few images from the shoot, some of which would never work for press purposes, but are still fun … or funny! Some of these ended up weirdly washed out, but I actually like the effect.
OK … commence epic, giant photo dump:
Printed tunic, Mac & Jac via Ideeli
Pink pumps, Nine West
Flame orange skirt, Banana Republic
Black cardi, Banana Republic (eesh)
Flame orange scarf, stolen from my mom
Green chalk turquoise necklace, street vendor is SF
Black Tsubo Acreas
Red bolero, came with a different dress
Purple Melissa Vinils
Bangles, a local boutique (Fringe in Edina)
Gray mini, thrifted
Black opaque tights, no clue
Thigh-high leather boots, Pleaser via Amazon
The debut of my thigh-high boots! I love these bad boys, but am still figuring out how I want to wear them. This outfit was FAR cuter in person … of about 15 photos, this is really the only one I like. Sigh.
I brought home this vintage dress from a thrifting trip, raving about how perfectly it fit me, but HM maintained that it was too big. It took a photo shoot for me to believe him. So we swished around the skirt a lot to distract … and now the frock is in the “take to the tailor” pile.
So you might recognize some of these outfits. Sorry for the lack of creativity! Just wanted to be sure I’d look and feel good in my various wardrobe options. There was a lot of changing in the back of HM’s car … tres glam. But the end result is pretty decent, eh?
