This photo shoot is an example of trusting your photographer - especially when your photographer (Chris) is so talented. As we were running around on this day, I saw a bright blue wall, and said that's where we should take pictures, because I was wearing such muted colours, plus a small print, so I wanted a solid background to make the pieces pop. But, Chris said no, that there was a much better backdrop down the street. I was reluctant, but I'm so glad I didn't argue because I absolutely love how he incorporated this background into the pictures.
Here's the "Chained Up" part of today's post. I'm just a blogger trying to break free. :)
This dress is very special to me, I picked it up in a market in Jakarta, Indonesia. Much like India and Pakistan, different regions of Indonesia have different patterns and prints that are specific to that area and culture. This pale print isn't at all a typical floral in the conventional sense but it's true to so many beautiful fabrics I saw in Jakarta.
I'm back to work today, after a week long staycation. I'm excited to see my work peeps, and looking forward to a fun week at work (and at play)! Have a wonderful week guys, thanks for stopping by!
