There's something a bit icky about bookending an inspiration post with photos of oneself, but I like these and didn't really have an outfit post to place them in. They are from a shoot I did with the lovely and talented Courtney Teesdale a couple months ago, and (despite my decidedly wonky eyebrows in the first one) I wanted to share them. Hence, the inspiration/sort of outfit post hybrid.
I hate when bloggers start some boring and complicated tangent about why they haven't posted in a while (as if I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for their next Heartbreaking Post of Staggering Genius), so let's just go with sometimes real life gets in the way and leave it at that.
Anyway, you have probably seen most of these photos pretty much everywhere (one reason why I rarely do inspiration), but if not, then please enjoy. The amazing wrist photo and the beautiful girl with the tattoos and jewelry are from Facehunter, and I sourced the Abbey Lee 80's portrait style photo from SRC783 (even though it's all over the place, and with good reason). The lovely flowers pic has been sitting on my desktop forever but I bet it's from WeHeartIt or something.
I have spent the past week or so hunting for a black dress to wear for a wedding in which I am a bridesmaid (congrats, Langley and Garrett!), and have been coming up with so much crap. Everything is ill-fitting or ugly or overly studded or zippered or bandaged or too tight or too tentlike (I really enjoyed typing that sentence). You get it. Suggestions welcome- I will be forever grateful if someone can provide me with a link to a lovely black cocktail dress that isn't too whatever. Thanks! I will inundate this little blog with outfit posts when the weather clears. That's one of the many beautiful parts of being a Texan- knowing the ice and snow is very, very temporary.
