I think photos at night can be pretty fantastic, especially with a city behind you. Just have to find the right light (or bring an assistant with your own). That’s the Queensboro bridge behind me, which I haven’t really shown like this before. It’s probably even better at sunset.
If only there wasn’t a paved road back there… then I could pretend that this was an actual forest. These are the first outfit photos I took with the Sony Alpha Nex-5N. Sometimes it doesn’t like focusing directly on me, but I’m determined to get bokeh out of the lens. I know it can be done, even if it’s not as nice as the stuff my Canon can produce. [Read more...]
When I bought this dress on a whim from Target I had no idea I’d wear it so much. In fact, I was definitely hesitant about it, but at $12 and change I thought I’d be able to get my money’s worth (even if it does sort of remind me of a tablecloth).

Dear Shen Dove,
Every. Winter. I tell myself that I’m going to wear this scarf more often. And of course it never happens, so this winter (really, I swear) it’s going to happen. This scarf is warm and cozy… and kind of obnoxiously large, but I like it. It deserves to be worn.
Last time I wore this scarf it was with grey and purple and Anthropologie. I guess I need to branch out! Color next time, for sure.
I’m wearing my J.Crew lady day coat, Anthropologie Plaited Illusion Cardi, Target dress (old- spring 2011), Betsey Johnson tights, and Born boots (brown). And these are new Anthropologie gloves, but they’re no longer available.
