The triumphant termination of a DSLR hijacking era. Finally one to call my own!


My  pocket-sized seven-point-two migapixel Sony point-and-shoot has served as a faithful and virtually indestructable companion over the past several years. It has experienced countless dips in bubbly champagne, gone for far too many  traumatizing free-fall rides, and encountered a plethora of losing battles with the rough/unfriendly/rocky terrain of trash-littered alleyways in various foreign countries.  Fingers crossed that this shiny new toy does not suffer the same horrible fate!  I'm still wildly uneducated when it comes to novelty photography gadgets, but trial and error is generally a good way to learn... so we took this plastic little Nikon out for a test run on my standard 'errand running' outfit.

Random boutique top, Seven for All Mankind cutoff shorts, BCBG suede platforms, DKNY studded handbag, Peacock feather earrings found in my ETSY store, Michael Kors/Vintage watches, Mexican beach vendor bracelet**
**Every time my sister goes on vacation, she brings me a piece of jewelry with my name on it. I'm convinced she thinks I suffer from some form of severe incurable amnesia and therefore as a result cannot remember my own three-letter name.

  4. Cute outfit! Those shorts are just great and the handbag's adorable! And finally... your point-and-shoot finally got some well deserved rest lol Mine's a Sony too, and it has endured quite so much umm... rough handling as well. They're pretty tough cookies, aren't they? lol

    Good luck with your DSLR, I'm sure you'll be very careful of it hehe. Those are really nice photos btw, thumbs up for the trial shoot ;)

    cheers!

    No, I didn't take my photos with an iphone. They were shot with a sony coolpix camera and then edited to give the polaroid effect.

  57. Your sister is sooo cute! At least you know she's thinking of you on vacay! I have to beg and plead my sister to get something for me when she goes, right now Im trying to convince her to bring me back a pineapple or coconut from Hawaii LOL

    You've got killer legs!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. that is such a cute idea of your sisters!
    i want my sister to do the same!!
    also, this outfit is lovely. i can't wait to dress like this in a few weeks once it's spring here.

    ps. in regards to your comment on kate bosworth changing her hair. exactly! the media just like to make up silly stories that only silly naive people believe. she's made a temporary, playful change and she looks amazing! x.
