NIGHT MOVES

HI EVERYBODY ! LONG TIME, NO SEE ;)
I JUST SPENT 2 DAYS WITH THE FIBER OPTICS INSTALLER. YEP, 2 FRIGGIN DAYS.....
THERE SEEMED TO BE A 'PROBLEM' WITH OUR COMPUTER NOT WANTING TO 'ACCEPT' THE WIRE-LESS SIGNAL. I ALMOST HAD TO CALL IN A COMPUTER WHISPERER, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE OUR OVER-PRICED INTERNET SECURITY SYSTEM. KAPERSKY. BE WARNED! It doesn't play well with others ;) After 7 hours on Thursday, then another 5 on Friday afternoon, I am back up and running. And pretty damn fast, too !


THIS OUTFIT IS MY TRIBUTE TO ILLUSIONS. THE SHORT TAN SKIRT PAIRED WITH AN ALL-BLACK LEG ADDS HEIGHT, WHILE THE TIGHTS ARE STILL THICK ENOUGH TO FEEL COVERED. THE HEAVY SWEATER IS ONLY TUCKED INTO THE BELT, AS NOT TO ADD 'TUCK-BULK' AND THE GLASSES (though I wear real ones, too) ARE HIDING MY SAGGY, STRESSED EYES. THE HAT IS THE PERFECT TRENDY LOOK FOR 'FLAT HAIR' DAY. THE FAUX LEATHER COAT (thrifted, Guess) ALSO ADDS A SENSE OF COVER, WITHOUT BULK AS DOES THE LONG SCARF.
WHICH COMES TO MY SINCERE APOLOGIES ON MISSING BLACK FRIDAY POST #4. SO, I WILL BE DOING 2 NEXT WEEK ;) Though, this outfit has heavy black tights and riding boots. Does that count?
AS YOU CAN SEE FROM MY PHOTOS, I WAS SHOOTING AT NIGHT AND NOT LOVING IT. I MOVED MY LIGHTS ALL OVER THE PLACE, TRIED FLASH (YUCK) NO FLASH ( TOO DARK ) , AND THE BEST I COULD DO (SO FAR) WAS A CRAFTSMAN WORK-LIGHT POINTED AT THE CEILING, 3 OVERHEAD BULBS ( in the ceiling fan), 2 LAMPS, ONE ON EACH SIDE, WITH  MINOR FILL-FLASH.
I KNOW, I KNOW, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE OUTFIT, BUT MY NEED FOR PERFECTION IS OVER-RIDING 
( or should I say, over-illuminating ) THE ISSUE. I ACTUALLY SCROLLED THROUGH OTHER BLOGS BEFORE LOADING THIS TO SEE HOW OTHER INDOOR PHOTOS LOOKED ;) The Queen of indoor shots is without a doubt, Kasmira, of WhatIWore2Day. She did my very first interview, which I'll be putting on my side-bar for you guys. Her re-mixing skills and her images are sheer greatness. Maybe she is the Blog Whisperer? Maybe I should bug her for tips ...........
IS CRYING ALLOWED IN THE BLOG-O-SPHERE ;) ?
Aw, heck, it's not all that cold outside ........
I Vow to be back on my A game by next week :)
In a no bitching zone, it's bad for the skin .....
HAVE A GREAT (what's left of it) WEEKEND !!!
xXx

Reva--I'm glad to see that you are back in operation! We have weird, temporary outages on days the wind blows, which doesn't make sense as I believe fibre optic is buried cable.

Your indoor shots are looking good! I found during the challenge that the one room we have an overhead light in worked great so long as it was truly dark outside. I'd love to see a photo of the room all rigged with lights.

You are always so put together, no matter what! I love this fun outfit! When I first clicked on the page, I thought you were jumping on the bed! LOL My excuse is that I'm not wearing my contacts or glasses right now!

Missed you, and I really like the photo setting you put together...but my favorite is your scarf!! One of my goals this next year to wear less bulk...it is more flattering to go without it!
You look cute!

Adorable adorable. You rock tan short skirts and black tights like nobody's business.
