So I'm starting to realize blogger isn't really my thing. I like having my blog on my independent site.

So there you have it. I've moved and this time I'm actually using my blog. It's summer and I have way too much time on my hands.

My outfit from Friday. The first day in ages that has reached the temperatures of 70 degrees. I felt like a mobile sun walking around wearing this dress all day.

Yellow Skirt now Dress: Goodwill ($4)
Black Lace Bra: For Love ($1)
Brown D&G Bag: A gift
Brown Wedges: Stolen from my sister

In this shot I kind of wanted to imply the idea of confinement and breaking out of that little box. I thought it turned out rather nifty. Just give me some good lighting and I'll work my magic.

Navy Blue Blazer: ($3) Goodwill
Grey La Disptue T-shirt: (Free) Concert
Kaki Crop Pants: ($10) H&M
Brown Bag: (A Gift) Dolce and Gabbana
Shoes: ($20) Guess by Marciano from DSW Shoes

My outfit for the day btw. I'm giving these shoes another trial. They look fabulous but I'm discovering these shoes hurt like hell. The angle strap really digs into your skin over time but I'll suck it up and deal.

I absolutely love shots like this. Shooting people unawares in their natural habitat doing whatever it is that holds their attention. Yet at the same time, boy do I feel like a creeper!

I walked past this lady's window, saw her working, then proceeded to cross the street and pull out my telephoto and take a few snaps of her working. Success. I am now officially a peeping tom.

Dress: ($5) Goodwill
Shoes:($20) DSW

My outfit from the other day. This dress is so regal, Egyptian-like and beautiful in real life. This photo only does it half justice.

I just bought these amazing $70 Guess by Marciano heels from DSW the other day for $20. There were some amazing clearances but I'm already broke as it is so this was me living on the edge. They're this brownish-red hue in real life with a shiny finish. Beautiful.

Lookbook for the day:

Vivid Blue Blouse: ($3) St Vincent De Paul Thrift Store
Yellow Floral Skirt: ($10) Gadzooks
Skinny Brown Braided Belt: ($1) Goodwill
Brown Wedges: Stolen from my sister

Once I saw this blouse while thrifting I knew I had to have it. the color is so strong and blue! Plus the material feels amazing against my skin. This is a perfect outfit for the upcoming spring. I can't wait.

Every time I look at this photo it looks as if he's riding his bike through a bunch of cirrus clouds and a slighty green and yellow sky. I love having an imagination.

Near the end of last year I received a Flickr message asking to do an interview to be featured in the Chinese magazine Homeland. I was just sent photos of the spread today and will receive an actual copy in the mail soon.

This is so exciting. This is huge for me.

Showing some camera love. I figured out how to use my speedlite and I've never been more content.

I have officially reached 30,000 visitors to my flickr. Exciting right?!

I go back to school tomorrow, finally. After a long long month or so at home, I've never been happier to go study. Packing is such a pleasant task knowing it means tomorrow I'll once again be school. A school where I have few friends and is located in the middle of no-where...That should probably tell you a little bit about my situation at home.

I'm sick of this place, anything is an improvement.
