Looking through my recent blog posts, I realize that I havenâ€™t done an outfit post in a while.
I have a friend (who doesnâ€™t?); heâ€™s one of those blunt, says-it-like-he-sees-it types.
We probably still wouldnâ€™t be friends if we didnâ€™t live thousands of miles away from each other, but heâ€™s a dear friend, he makes me laugh and I love him very much.
He sent me an email a few days ago saying â€œI see youâ€™re not posting pictures of yourself anymore. Why, did you get fat from all that food youâ€™ve been cooking?â€
Frankly, food shots are more fun than outfit shots, and look less egotistic.
That said, I still love taking outfit pictures, because it continues to be fun and I actually enjoy it (who wouldnâ€™t? all I have to do is just stand there).
I just switched over my summer wardrobe, and if the warm weather sticks around for a bit, I should be out there taking some fun pictures.
So hereâ€™s an outfit post; of my favourite vintage blue dress â€“ I got this dress in le Marais last year on my last day on vacation.
It was one of those perfect days, and I still had a million final things to do, I made a little detour and found this dress.
It was blue, vintage and polyester â€“ I was drawn to it, it reminded me of an old black and white picture Iâ€™d seen of my great aunt.
She had a similar dress on and in the picture, she looked so young, innocent and happy; and with that image in mind I knew I had to have that dress.
