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.
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 .....
