First, a confession.
I'm not that big on polkadots. They sorta give me a little bit of a headache with their organized lines and, usually, bright colors.
On Monday, though, I found a polkadot-something-something I couldn't say no to.
I tend to shop at flea markets quite a lot, and on Monday, I had something to dig up. Fabrics, that is. Found them, and also the little something-something for Me. It was a very nice, once-worn black mesh top. With velvet polkadots.
What could I do but carry it to the cash register and say "I'd like this, please".
It was so nice I wore it the next day for more shopping.
Washed it first, of course, but mesh dries fast.
I was feeling 80s on Tuesday morning, so I paired the top with a nice skirt I got from a friend when we first swapped clothes, and a corset-top I made a few summers ago. And my hat.
Got complimented on it, which was surprising, and threw me off my guard so that all I could do was utter aww, thanks :D
Anyways. The morning was very morning-y, and we took pics after returning home. Snapshot-session went as usual, and since usable shots pretty much shone with their absence, I figured I'd share the outtakes. Just for laughs =)
|"Would you take, like, nice ones, with me smiling and all? With, like, my whole face showing? At least partially? And please wait until I finish fidgeting with my hair."|
|"Should I pose and stuff? How do I pose with arms this long? Can I hide them behind my back? Or should I do something to make them appea even longer?"|
|"Are you sure you're taking my picture and not just toying with the camera?"|
|"OK, I'll do a pose like those models do in the magazines I never... WHAT'S THAT NOISE!!!"|
|"Are you sure you didn't hear a noise? I heard a noise, it was there, I know! It was a burglar or ... a... a bear? Mouse rattling outside? Surely something very dangerous we should immediately investigate upon!!"|
|"OK, I'm bored now, but take one more with the lacing in the back showing, OK? Got it? No? What do you mean 'what lacing', the lacing in the back!"|
That's the way it goes in my house... :D
But the top is nice, and I have suddenly learned to like polkadots.
At least when it's black on black :D
