London is Calling

 A big thanks to Jem for this wonderful velvet top.
Her blog and style are amazing. She's one of my daily top blogs to get inspired with :)
I received it about a month ago and was awaiting the perfect moment to wear it. Then I got this cool vintage hat during my trip (at the Sturgis Antique Mall), plus these killer hidden-platform pumps (Penny's) and Wa, La ! I shopped my closet, and at first was gonna do the velvet skirt, or jeans, then these cropped pin-striped pants seemed a bit out-of -the-ordinary and I like how it all came together.
And most of you guys know, I plan to be a portrait photographer by 50, so I played with some poses/lighting. Here's what came out. I am kinda proud of them if I do say so myself ;) The colors of the top and hat were perfect for the evening shoot :)  By the By, I am not wearing white tights, those are my legs ;) Got Shades ? I'm still not really sure why I looked so pale ..... ?  ~ Kinda Goth ..........


This was so much fun !!!  ~  How'd I do, Ma ?
( P.S. Blogger, hear my plea ;)
And Whoa !!! What a big-@ss reading list, Blogger !
Ya no longer need to actually read blogs anymore. Geesh..........
OK ~ take a breath ;)

Did your reader list explode too! What's going on??? I don't have a scroll bar either.

How fun to receive that gorgeous top from Jem, it looks great on you. I didn't realize you wanted to be a portrait photographer. I think you would make a great one because your photos always tells a story.

Swank hat and lovely top.

I'm really liking the black and white photos with a bit of coloring in them. They are striking!

Interesting to learn of your ambition to become a portrait photographer. I didn't know.
