Chapter One Says to Love Her, Love Her With All Your Heart...

On the Metro on the ride home yesterday, I ended up having front-row seats to an impromptu doo-wop concert. Normally I just like to read my book on the ride home, and any noise above a whisper would receive a slightly snarky glance from me, but these gentlemen were actually quite good, and it was just the thing I needed to lift my rainy-day-blah mood.


Purple Top: Charlotte Russe
Black Tee: Sears
Charcoal Gray Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Aldo, thrifted
Ring: Laila Rowe
Necklace: made by a friend


(It's kinda hard to tell in these pictures, but the top is really a beautifully rich purple, and while it was a darker outfit, it didn't quite look to depressing in person!)

Because it was so ick outside yesterday, outdoor shots just weren't gonna happen. I figured there was no better time to try out some of Kasmira's advice on how to get better photos indoors. I haven't perfected things just yet, but my pictures turned out remarkably brighter!

I made a point to take some pictures before adjusting my settings per her advice so you can compare:


At least you can see the fun hats I bought dear fiance and myself. He gets the monkey, I'm the bumble-bee!

  1. I like the last shot, def better. I like that I can see the richness of the purple. Cute hats. You should do a post with them on. Have a good weekend.
