oh so retro

I was actually running late to meet some friends when I took these photos, and in all the crazy running-late-ness, I totally didn’t realize that the battery on my camera had apparently died.  Not to be foiled, I grabbed my old Canon Rebel, the camera I had when I started this blog, and figured I’d do some shots with that.

Except… the last time I’d carried my Canon Rebel was apparently Fashion Week, because it was set with a super high ISO, resulting in the weirdly dark and gritty photos in this post.  Some days you just can’t win!

Banana Republic was kind enough to send me this dress, and I had it shortened by about a foot and now absolutely love it. :-) It felt sort of retro, thin-Betty-Draper-esque to me, which isn’t usually the style I gravitate towards naturally, so tailoring the length made it a little more “me.”  Paired with this too-cute purse from Nine West (some bags are “bags” but this one is for sure a “purse”!), all I need is a time machine. 

Actually, let’s face it, if I had a time machine, I’d go the way of Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris.  And then go to the future, DUH!  How cool is the future going to be?!  They’ll be all, “oh, skinny jeans and platforms, so retro!”
