drstrangelove 's Thoughts:

(one of my fave older looks!)

Sydney has been non-stop pouring this past week which almost ruined our photoshoot plans. It was still raining in the morning but as soon as a window of opportunity emerged (aka the elusive sun) we seized the chance to shoot. The umbrella was therefore not only to serve as a pretty prop, but also as a close-at-hand weapon prepped for defense from impending downpour havoc.

Kind of a cute story with the umbrella actually! It was pouring buckets on Enrolment day at university (I was fresh out of highschool! So keen for the much-anticipated Wild Uni Life and so unaware that “Wild” really meant late nights staying up poring over law textbooks!), and my dad and I were confronted with the uninviting task of trekking it from the train station to the campus umbrella-less. We made it halfway and then my dad popped into a newsagency to purchase one- it was a large, bright red umbrella adorned with white hearts, lined with frills at the bottom. He said he chose it because it matched the top I was wearing that day, a cap-sleeve red top with white hearts. LOL I felt like such a dork carrying it around (like some crazy, hypnotising red-and-white-swirly girl who just had way too much love to give) but at the same time I thought it was so ridiculously cute, that my dad was so conscious of his daughter’s desire to look fashionable that he chose an umbrella that was colour-coordinated with my top (maybe a little too perfectly).
