White Jeans Styled Two Ways

Hello World! It has been some time since my last post. House buying, moving in and setting up a new home, and life getting in the way! Finally, getting back, and as an additional incentive, the NaBloPoMo for May involves photography. I have loved photography from an early age and miss being in the darkroom, winding a spool of B&W film and developing it; making my own prints. But I am slowly getting to know my iPhone, the various apps for editing photos taken with it, and learning how to use Instagram.

So the first topic for NaBloPoMo May is “You” and “Selfies.” Me, I’m not a big selfie fan. At least not yet. I haven’t practiced enough to really know. But I’m at a disadvantage right off the bat because I’m not tall. Which means I don’t have long arms. Which makes it a lot more difficult to put the phone a good distance or angle to take a decent photo of yourself. I’ve been looking into selfie sticks and remote/tripod setups for the iPhone.

In the meantime, I did need some photos of myself last week to submit styling ideas for the “How I Wear My…” feature of Adrienne Shubin’s blog The Rich Life on a Budget. This month’s theme is White Jeans. I’ve styled my white jeans with flats and heels. These were selfies taken with a regular point-and-shoot using the camera’s self-timer and a tripod.

On the Fringe

Yay! I get to do another Holiday Fashion post! I finally completed my portfolio re-do–for the time being (more changes planned, but I can’t get to my data storage right now.) Now for some fun!

I had a dilemma about what to call this post, as I came up with several fun ones: Fringe Benefits, Holiday Fringe, All In Fringe, All About Fringe. I finally settled on “On the Fringe” as it denotes “being on the edge,” which just sounded more interesting!

I’ve gathered up a nice collection of fringe! Skirts, dresses, tops and accessories. And I’ll tell you a little about my new favorite clothing line, which has several fringed pieces. Check my Pinterest for shopping info!
