When? September 12, 2012
What for? Running errands and impromptu shopping on a beautiful late summer day in Portland. I want to get the most out of my summer wardrobe while I still can, including these bright pink wedges that make me go squeeee! every time I put them on. Makes me think back to 3rd grade when I insisted that all my new school clothes be this color. Oh yes, I was a walking, talking, girl-sized bottle of Pepto-Bismal. And I loved it.
Where was I? Oh, yes, bright pink wedges. Sam brought the “little camera” on our shopping trip — a Canon PowerShot that’s more than a few years old — but the first shots we took outside came out weird. So in the middle of the Container Store, I had the idea to pose in front of the back wall o’ hangers. Here’s how it went down: look left, look right, all clear, click, click, click.
And yay, the How to Be a Fashion Blogger series has a new funny blogger pose, the “Lean and Laugh” (that 3rd shot above is my best attempt this go-around). I have *totally* pulled this one out before, as has the hubby. Busted!
