That It Moves


Update on my outfit photo location hunt.. I found a place that is a possibility for when I'm in the area/ it's not a weekend or holiday!  Our local shopping mall has one parking garage (although it's quite small) and I took these on the second floor in the back, where there were no cars.  A couple of people were getting out of their cars or driving by, but no crazy looks or stares! Win!



I named this post after the Greg Laswell song, "That It Moves," because it was FREAKING (haha, Christina from Second Skin knows it's serious when I use the "f" word) windy out! The chorus of the song repears "Oh do you like the way that it moves?" Over and over, and it was playing in my head the whole time while snapping these because my outfit wouldn't keep MOVING! My tripod too.. my poor camera came out of the battle with a few scratches.  Some of these pictures are tame, but as you can see from the second picture, the wind was not nice to my skirt! Walking out of class was a little scary, there's sort of a long walk to my car from the building and my hands were full with books! I'm pretty sure that while taking these photos, my skirt flew up once, but I don't think anyone was around! Haha! I didn't even realize it was so windy until I was fully clothed and already running late for class.. I guess being on the second floor of a parking garage doesn't help much, does it?

Alright, so I have to tell you about these shoes! People.. these were $5! I have been looking all over for this style in my size at the thrift stores and was about to give up and buy a pair of Steve Maddens that were on sale for $50.  But you just can't beat $5, and I like these better than the Steve Maddens, anyways!

  6. The first photo is so pretty!
    Those shoes are awesome, and what a great price.

  7. Well, that is a totally great buy for the shoes and they look awesome:) Thank god you found them before you bought the steve madden ones. It usually works the other way around and you buy the expensive ones, then find 5 of what you originally looking for at the thrift store. Murphy's Law, I guess:)

  8. I'm totally digging your scarf - I love the chunkyness of it.

  9. I love your sense of style! It's simple and pretty with details to make it unique. I've been wanting a cowl for quite some time, yours is so cozy-looking!

  10. I love those pixie boots and the circle scarf! so pretty!
