The good news: my husband thinks I'm hot. The bad news: I look tarty in most of his photos.
Also, frivolity warning. If you're looking for anything besides fluff this week, read no further. Likelihood is that it's going to be dresses, shoes, and accessories til Friday.
Because if you know me, you know that I could spend all my time talking about these things.
For those of you still with me: I'm shopping my closet and choosing dresses for two nights. I don't need to get all dressy, but I want to. Also, I use far too many colons in this post.
(I accidentally typed fart oo many colons. And HAHAHAHAHA.) Anyway.
So in our house I have three photography options.
1. Take photos of myself in the mirror. Upside: I pose the way I want. Downside: toilet in the background.
2. Ask Betty to take my picture. She is a dear, lovely woman with good design sense, but will invariably cut off the top of your head. (Sorry, Mama, but it's true.)
3. Ask Nick. He takes wonderful pictures. Of other people. Of his wife? Lots of focus on bare body bits. Not so much the dresses.
So, here are the first three options. (Yes. There are A Lot More.)
Back of black dress 1 with shockingly comfortable S&M shoes (BD1+S&M):
Front of BD1:
BD 2 back - the coolest part of this awesome Diane von Furstenburg dress that I got at a consignement store in Princeton for $50:
BD 2 front and take the fucking picture already:
Blue dress with super comf gold platforms (BLD+GP):
The front and black of the blue dress are the same. You can't tell but it's kind of Grecian and drapey.
I realize there's no comparing apples to apples with these pics because "Oh, zzzzzzzz," according to the photographer. Also, by the third dress and 50 millionth picture, I was getting kind of antsy. As evinced by my pseudo-Bharatanatyam.
Pros of BD1: Super stretchy and comfy and boob-supportive, plus I love the criss-crossy back. No cons that I can think of.
Pros of BD2: I LOVE the back. And the front. It drapes so nicely. Cons: You can see my boobs if I bend over.
Pros of Blue dress: Comfy, floaty, and I can wear the gold platforms with it (I think? Can I?). Cons: The top is a wee bit loose and there seems to be no way to wear a bra. Potential girls peeking out incident.
I've got several more dress options for tomorrow. Not sure if I'll be posing with the toilet, with my head cut off, or if there's more trampiness to follow.
