The last few days have been so busy, but so much fun! I apologize for not updating in favor of making mischief with my good friend, Molly. She and I have been up to some really exciting things, including planning a trip to LA next weekend, which has been a long-time coming! So you can bet I will have tons and tons of fun posts and photos for you guys. We’re going to be shooting with some really amazing photographers while we’re there, we’re also hoping to visit Huntington Beach (my home-town) and get some shopping in. I also have a really important meeting that unfortunately I can’t discuss right now, but I will have plenty of juicy details for you next week! :D
Today I had a shoot session with Jeanatte Salazar to build up my portfolio and let me tell you: It. Was. A. Blast! I love getting together with Jeanatte, she’s so much fun and again, super, super talented. That lady makes magic with her nikon and home studio and husband, Phil, who is sometimes made to hold reflectors for us when propping it against a computer chair doesn’t work. Lol! We only shot for about an hour and a half, but we still ended up with a ton of great photos, and I’m so excited and anxious to see them finished! Jeanatte did send me a teaser from today’s shoot! I was actually messing around and being a goofball when I struck the pose, but it ended up being one of our favorites! Funny how that works, huh? :}
She also gave me a couple of gorgeous hair flower fascinators that she’d originally bought to shoot with, but didn’t end up using them – cuz she knows I’m a sucker for fun, pinup-inspired accessories! After we shot, we just chillaxed for a little bit and caught up, before I headed back to my side of town for lunch at my mom’s restaurant. Then I went home and snapped these outfit shots for you guys real quick, before I took a much-needed and well-deserved napped! Lol! All in all, I was feeling kind of Moulin Rouge/vintage showgirl in this outfit for some reason.
I borrowed the dress, which I LOVE, from my friend Molly. She has the most amazing closet. (I could seriously shop in that thing for hours!) Even more so than the color and the adorable rose print, I think my favorite thing about this dress is the cut/shape. It’s very curve-hugging and figure-flattering and I love the swag of the pockets that jet out from the hips. It creates even more of an hour-glass shape, and really accentuates the hips. It’s a great shape for curvy girls!
Anyhoo… It’s bed time for this gal! I wish you all a good night and sweet dreams <3
