You'd think that with a brand new camera I'd have outfits to post, but actually my new camera is too heavy for my tripod. And I'm super busy right now (as usual) - I'm probably moving this weekend! So, for now here's some more of the photos I've taken with my new camera. Outfits to come post-tripod-buying and post-moving.

- I'm a 20 year old student earning a degree in Fashion and Interior Merchandising. I adore fashion blogs, so I decided to start one of my own. I love: fashion, design, art, film, music, shopping, cooking, my Weimaraner puppy - Milton, peach tea, David Sedaris, florals, traveling, naps, Charleston, theatre, peacocks, picnics, Asheville, Zooey Deschanel, learning new things and meeting new people. Contact me here - I'd love to hear from you!

I'm so excited to be featured on Glamour.com again! (Check out my first feature here.) This time they were kind enough to include three of my photos in the slideshow! I love that Glamour features looks from bloggers. Some of my favorite bloggers are featured as well - Keiko Lynn, Sterling Style, Blue Collar Catwalk and Kansas Couture - check it out!

I finally did it! I bought a new camera! Say hi to my brand new Canon Rebel XS. Here are some of my first photos with it...
I can't wait to learn more about how to use this thing...it's so fun! If any of you have the same camera...or a Canon...or just any sort of photography knowledge in general - I'd love to hear from you! Tips, helpful books/websites, techniques, etc. - I'm definitely no photography expert (until yesterday I'd never used anything fancier than my old point and shoot) but I'm eager to learn!
P.S. There are a few more here.

Today - for the third time - I attempted to take outfit photos. And today (again, third time) I got to my computer, looked at them...and frowned. Lately, every time I try to photograph my outfits (or get my boyfriend to, as I did today) I end up with only a few good shots while all the rest are horrible. I have no time for detail shots (or if I do they turn out awful) and I get discouraged and don't post. So today I decided to combine them all so that I could share the few decent photos...even if there aren't enough to devote to one post for each separate outfit.
Dress - BB Dakota via Pascun; Necklace - American Eagle; Shoes - Yellowbox
Necklace - thrifted; Dress - J. Crew Clearance store; Sandals - Kate Preston
Top - J. Crew clearance store; Necklace - thrifted; Shorts - American Eagle; Shoes - Yellowbox
Anyways, here are some of the funny outtake photos. Unfortunately, most of the photos I've taken recently have looked a lot less like those up there and a lot more like these...
Milton and Lola invaded my picture taking...
so I was like "Oh, I'll pick them up! It'll be a cute photo of us all!" Only instead of looking cute I decided to look like a half asleep homeless person. And the puppies decided to look really distressed. So basically, it looks like I'm holding someone's puppies hostage and demanding food or drugs or something.
Here's me thinking "yaaay pretty pictures of my new dress!" You can't tell from this photo, but it actually wasn't pitch black outside, believe it or not.
That face was in response to a creepy man across the street telling me to "smile real pretty."

I think it's time for one of those posts where I overload you with adorable puppy photos. Yes? (You're probably thinking "it's time for an outfit post, too." I agree. More on that later.)
So, as usual, I've been terribly busy (which is the reason for the continual lack of outfit posts). Work, birthday celebrating, pup care, vet visits, hair cuts and hunting for a new apartment! I'm quite excited about the apartment - there's a dog park where the pups can play! But it will be my first unfurnished place...so I might actually have a to buy a bed. I like the storage options and minimalistic look of this one from CSN Stores.
I also love that one of the CSN store's websites has puppy toys! I feel like I'm constantly shopping for puppies toys now because I know they need them to chew on and play with so they aren't bored when we're away - but half the ones I buy disappear! I don't know where the silly pups are hiding them. Anyways, I'm always up for good toy suggestions. Most of the time when I go to shop for them there are just so many that it's overwhelming...and it's hard to know which of the expensive ones are actually worth the money. Any tips?

As of today, I'm only a decade way from 30. Eeek.
I'm not doing anything toooo exciting today, just hanging out with family and friends. I feel like a pretty boring twenty-year-old. How did you celebrate the big 2-0?
My boyfriend and I can't celebrate until Monday because he has to work. He just asked if I wanted presents or for him to just take me shopping. It's actually a hard decision...
P.S. - Don't you just love that lolcat?!
