Tilly Dress: Voodoo Vixen
White belt: eBay (similar here)
White flats: Yeswalker (on sale!)
Ahh, I like these photos so much better than the ones in my last post! It helped that I waited 'til later in the afternoon to take these (that whole golden hour thing is very true). I still don't fully have the hang of things, but I'm trying to make myself read a lot of tutorials (most of which I pinned a long time ago and subsequently forgot about). I kind of have to do it in small increments though, haha.
It also helps that this dress just makes me smile. It always makes me think of Blanche Deveraux from The Golden Girls for some reason (or maybe just Florida in general?), which is where I got the blog title from (if you're a diehard fan, you'll get the reference). I'd been eyeing this dress for a long time a while back, and then it seemed to be sold out before I could purchase it! I'd assumed it was gone forever, but then I happened to check the Voodoo Vixen website on a whim, and saw that it was back! I had to order it immediately (after consulting with my friend Jana of Small Town, Big Smile on sizing -- thanks, Jana!), and I'm so glad I did. Granted, the sizing is a *little* wonky on this dress, but it kind of has to do with my proportions more than anything else; the top gapes a LOT (I kept having to make sure all the buttons were buttoned), but the waist is quite roomy. The latter was solved with the addition of a belt, but I think I'll need to find a matching camisole to wear under this before I wear it again, as I did experience a bit of a wardrobe malfunction a couple of times! Oops.
It's strange to be posting these photos when the temperature here is in the single digits (and with the windchill, it's around -10 degrees -- which is like, -23 for those not in the USA). I tried to take photos outside yesterday, forgetting how blasted cold it is, and I immediately regretted it. I only took about 3 photos before I had to call it quits. Sad, too, because I really liked what I was wearing. I'll have to try again and hope that it warms up a little. I really hate taking photos inside. There's never enough light in my bedroom, and I'm still not satisfied with it as a backdrop. I'm already anxious for spring to arrive.
|I love my bangs so much more in these photos, too!|
Have a wonderful Thursday!
