What? It is already well into October, isn’t it? I know, I know, I never posted anything for September. I didn’t even forget, I just never got any photos taken. It was a bad month for me, photogenically speaking. I was having one of those ‘bad hair’ days for all of three weeks it seemed. I like to use the term ‘bad hair day‘ to include all forms of physical appearance. I am finally feeling better about myself, and finally ready to show you all what I have worn lately that was thrifted.
And actually my ‘bad hair day’ may have started earlier that I am thinking. I remember now that I didn’t even get a proper outfit photo post up for the last month’s Thursday Thrift either. I was a headless, polka dot dress wearing body. Sorry about that. Let me make it up this month, how about another polka-dotted dress, but this time with my head included? Here you go:
I have loved this dress since the day I got it. It didn’t even matter that it was a little on the snug side when I did. I knew I would fit into it eventually, and this was the week – almost two years later. I tried it on after months and months of ignoring it, and am very happy to say it fits! I will never turn down polka dots, and I may be accumulating quite a collection of them. You can never have too many polka dots, I always say.
On a different note but back to that feeling lately of being not so photogenic, it isn’t always easy taking pictures of yourself. The funny thing is that I have gotten more used to taking my own photos than I am of my guy taking them for me. I feel like I can be a little more at ease taking them myself, but then I run the risk of having them always looking somewhat the same. I am trying to work on this, but since I just signed myself up for a year in outfit photos, which I am trying to have happen on a weekly basis, I don’t know how original I will get. Not everyday calls for a drive to some location other than my backyard. If all else fails, I can just overly edit my monotonously posed photos. Sounds good to me. I may end up a better Photo Shopper than photographer at the rate I am going. But I am happy to be back posting about outfits and thrited finds either way. Until next time (which is only one week away), happy thrifting!
