Purple Grecian 70's Maxi Dress, Gold Jewelry: Thrifted.
Nude Heels: Gabriel Brother's.
Hello there everyone!
Like the lace dress I wore on the first day of school yesterday, I've been saving this 70's maxi dress ever since I bought it in Akron a few weeks back. I was drawn to the interesting and unique draping of the garment which is unlike anything I've ever seen before. It almost has the appearance of a jumpsuit or MC Hammer pants, but the intricate draping actually makes a dress! The slitted sleeves are another detail that I love... it was fun finding a way to beat the 'no shoulders' rule for the dress code today! ;)
Although I do love this dress, I'm rather (and when I say rather I mean quite) unhappy about how the pictures turned out. I've been unhappy with how all my pictures have turned out recently actually. I have a very amature camera and have long been lusting after a beautiful, new DSLR. When I first started my blog I knew nothing about photography and my sub par camera and images didn't really bother me because I was still learning. But after years of taking pictures everyday I realize how much I am missing out on by not having a nicer camera and how much my blog is lacking with so-so pictures. I've saved every penny of my money from working so far at Cheddar's and have about $550 saved up at the moment. Not a lot, I know, but it is something! I've been reading up on all sorts of cameras as of late trying to figure out what one will give me what I want (soft, dreamy photos) for the lowest price. After some research so far I'm thinking about the Canon EOS Rebel T3. Do any of you know any helpful information about the camera? I'm quite naive and clueless when it comes to what cameras are good or bad, so feedback from you all would be much appreciated and valued!
Hope you all are doing lovely...
With much love, Lauren.
