True Collar | Outfit

vintage-pearls-dots-outfit-00They say a picture is worth a thousand words but I don’t know what kind of information you could string together after looking at these outfit shots.

You’d never know I was using a random spot of animal urine as my mark for where to stand. Or that I was shivering and nailed my full body shot on the first take but still went on to take 80 more pictures because I wasn’t sure. Or that I was trying to dress casually for some Saturday morning errands and then put on lipstick and blew it because to me, lipstick makes you look fancy. Or that these pictures were taken at the end of the day before putting lounge clothes on and my sister insisted I take pictures because I told her I felt cute. Or that I ruined my hair in a curling iron incident the night before and it became straight overnight so I pulled it into two tiny braids and used 1000 hair clips to keep it in place.

And you’d really never know I started writing this blog post deep into Sunday night and then almost fell asleep at my laptop so I decided to wait until Monday morning to check it over and hit publish. My late night self thought “true collar” was a funny take on “blue collar” because I’m both poppin’ my collar and over sharing. (But hey, 99% of my best puns come from my late night zombie state!)
