The post in which I cannot defend my photography or my puns.
1. I was gifted an online photography class for Christmas, but I haven’t started yet. This was my first outfit post where I attempted to shoot manual–and this was the best photo of the lot. I’m hoping there’s a good learning curve on this, but it needs to be done! We are lucky enough to have two Nikon cameras, and it’s about time I learned what to do with them. First lesson learned, though. I’ll be shooting on auto on the next round of outfit photos. Although I kind of like my distinct lack of wrinkles here.
2. This blazer is new to me, but the rest of the outfit is somewhat old (okay, the T was a recent purchase in a moment of weakness). I’ve been eyeing a navy Schoolboy blazer from J. Crew for quite a while, and keeping up with sales, but never saw one in my range. Meanwhile, several of my favorite bloggers wore theirs and I saw just how versatile it could be. Last week, on a whim, I checked eBay , and there just happened to be an auction ending on the Factory version that day. I checked with Franziska on twitter to see what she thought of the regular version vs the Factory and she gave a resounding approval. I bid and waited….and then, it was mine! MINE! For only $29.44. (About $170 less than the retail of one new.) The best part? It hadn’t even been worn. The pockets and back vent were still sewed shut. Honestly, it deserves a better photo, but you’ll be seeing lots of it.
3. After just a few months, I’m feeling like I’m in a really good place with updating my wardrobe. Which is great!–but that probably means—no shopping for a while. I’m hoping to go more in depth with that soon (as well as share a budget post for this month).
