This was one of those bitter cold days where my body just shuts down. I was upset at my fauxtographer a.k.a husband. I can’t recall what I was mad about but lets just say the first ten photos of this shoot, I look pissed. Somewhere along this shoot I realized these were going up on my blog so I adjusted my face. I’m not a “smiler” at all so forcing myself to smile when I’m pissed adds another layer of difficulty for me. I’ll talk about my smile v. “serious” face on another post.
I wore this outfit to a cancer awareness event, “Think Pink” on a much warmer fall day. It was a wonderful event hosted by a friend of mine where she donated some of her custom hair wigs to another friend of ours, that’s a cancer survivor. It was a wonderful event and our friend was brought to tears because of the generosity of the hostess.
I knew I wanted to wear these jeans because the event was on a Saturday night and these jeans are the perfect mixture of classy and casual. In order to keep this look from looking too casual I added this beautiful butter silk top from Theory. The color is a pearl white but it does remind me of butter ( and it felt like butter). I wore my silver diamond studded ankle strap heels. I threw on this pretty fur coat I purchased at Goodwill and a vintage clutch.
