Evergreen Envy

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Black Friday hit my pocket book hard. I don't know about you, but I said yes when I ought to say no. I'd like to think that even though I splurged on several sites (Modcloth, Besame and in person at Chapters) that nothing was TOO much of an impulse buy. Even though, yes, all the merchandise at Modcloth was new releases so it's not like I could pre-plan my purchase, I bought shoes and a shirt I already have, just in different colours, and I bought a bracelet I had my eye on already, just also in a different colour. Plus at Besame, it was just free shipping and a free gift (shipping is usually $13) so I just bought what I was planning on buying already. Totally justified, right? (A shopaholic will justify any purchase, muahaha.)

Besides shopping and being bad, I'm up to my same usual stuff. Hiding indoors. Even though it's warmed up this week.

These are some more photos I took by myself. This set I remembered to turn the flash on, but some of the other sets I didn't! I'll post those later in the week. I literally forgot I had to pop the light thingy up, whoops. I'm liking using the tripod, but getting close up detail shots are a little tricky. But I'm still learning.

I got this dress as a Christmas gift 2 years ago and wore it out for NYE. I decided to re-mix it a bit by losing the fascinator, changing the colour of my purse and switching out my brooch (you can see how I originally wore it on Modcloth's Style Gallery.)

Outfit Details
Dress - Rock Steady (no longer available but a similar one is available on Modcloth)
Shoes - borrowed from my mom (Naturalizer)
Purse -  gift from a make-up counter (I think Lancome?)
Brooch - vintage
Earrings - Icings

When I pulled out this dress from my closet, it made me realize how few dresses (or items in general!) I had that are this lovely shade of evergreen. So I had to make some wishlists!
