… made this photo absolutely perfect. The skirt poufing ever so slightly is great, don’t you think? Props to my boyfriend/photographer—if you look closely at the 2nd picture, you’ll see his reflection in the left sunglass lens!
Anyways, this is a 60s bohemian-inspired outfit, with platform sandals, a simple leather bag, and a tiered skirt in addition to the clearly hippie-ish top.
To contrast with the softness, these photos were taken around the Berkeley Art Museum, known for it’s postmodern Brutalism-inspired industrial ugliness. But, it’s a nice plain background that works rather well, I think. Better than the rejected tree-hugging shots.That would have been a tad too Berkeleyan.
Berkeley, despite not being what it used to be in the glory days of the 60s, is still fairly green and hippie-ish, which works well for me since I’m vegetarian (have been for 8-9 years). And all the recycling everywhere is almost oppressive, in a good way, of course. Oh, and everything is biodegradeable. The take-out boxes, the utensils, and today, my boss gave my co-workers and me a “finals survival pack” in what else but a biodegradeable binder. Who has ever heard of such a thing? Oh, how we laughed.
I leave you with shoe-porn yet again (can you tell yet that I covet shoes more than anything else?). _ I love the unconventional color of these sandals and the teardrop-shaped cutout in front. Took me forever to track a pair down in my size. The brand doesn’t seem to be carried in too many stores, and this particular pair was even rarer.
