Outfit: It’s Familiar, But Not Too Familiar

I know I’ve said this before, but I really think the weather is going to make a final turn into the chill breeziness of autumn.  Technically, of course, it is autumn, but do seasons and equinoxes really have meaning in a post-modern society?  I hardly think so.

All pretentious posturing aside, I figured that since it was likely the last of the warm weather, I better wear this dress one last time before it got too cold.  I bought it ages ago solely because of the print–I’m a sucker for anything that features dogs, and the pups on this dress are just too cute!

I don’t have any other dresses in my closet like this.  I’m not much of a halter girl, and I think that’s because the style is perhaps a little too retro for my taste.  However, I have to admit I love this dress, print or not.  It’s so twirly!  I took literally dozens of pictures of myself spinning around in it, none of which turned out so great.  A leg would be sticking out in an odd direction, my eyes would be half closed, and the skirt would have flown up just a little too high. I’m sure all the people out for strolls in the park found the whole thing extremely amusing.

Speaking of which, does anyone else have an embarrassing photo shoot story?  I hope I’m not the only one!

  1. You look lovely in this dress. It’s got such a fun print and beautiful twirly skirt. It looks like you had a blast shooting these photos in the beautiful park though! My photo shoots are usually full of awkward, embarrassing pictures. Especially of me making really ugly faces. Hahaha.


    1. Thank you very much–it definitely was a lot of fun to shoot there. I totally hear you on making faces; I will take upwards of 100 pictures per shoot, and I can only really use about 25 because of all the weird things my face and body are doing!!


  2. You look amazing in these photos! That dress looks so great on you!! Beautiful. And your hair is really lovely here.
    Embarrassing photo shoots – I think they’re all quite embarrassing when people are around… Haha
    The photography is so pro in these photos, really well done!
    Much love


    1. Thank you, dear friend! I had such a blast in this garden–there are so many shots of me spinning around that I wish I could have used! And I know what you mean about every public photo shoot being embarrassing; it’s still something that I feel awkward about!


  3. This dress is adorable! I love that it has puppies on it. 🙂 Your photos are fantastic too! I love all the different poses and angles!

    Haha, and twirling photos always sound so fun in theory but they are so hard to capture. Haha. I think every time I’ve tried to twirl it’s ended in embarrassment. I tried to do a twirling photo shoot in Central Park not too long ago in front of hordes of people passing by…that was embarrassing. I looked like I had escaped a mental institute. 😉

    Hope you’re having a great week, Devinne!


    1. Thank you very much! I am totally with you on the twirling issue. I know it looks ridiculous, but when you get the right shot, it’s all worth it. And if I had seen you in Central Park that day, I’d just be like, “Yeah, that’s my blogger girl getting her twirl on.” 🙂


  4. The dress and shoes together are really cute. Like you, I’m not much of a halter dress person, but I love how they look on other people. I think my aversion to them is that maybe I always tied the neck strap too tight so it feels uncomfortable!

    I feel super silly doing photo shoots in public, but in LA there are ALWAYS people doing photoshoots (people doing solo shoots and then sometimes I’ll see a full team with a photographer and assistants holding reflectors!) so I have started feeling less awkward about my own photos!


    1. Thanks! You know, I have the opposite feeling about halters–they always feel too loose on me, especially one like this, which you can’t adjust. I think it’s really cool that there are so many other people doing shoots in LA! Somehow I have never come across anyone else doing a style shoot.


I'd love to hear from you!
