Feeling loopy

If you haven't noticed, recently I've liked to use props in my style photos...

Yesterday, I randomly picked this pez dispenser from my shelf that Miki sent me last year. I feel like props help me open up... sometimes when we get past the silliness of "showcasing" something, I can relax, have fun, and get some good shots.

The the last few shoots have been a blast to do! Especially the Christmas lights. I want to revisit that theme, but then again, don't want every shoot to be a rehash of the same one. Is it possible to copy yourself?

Sigh. I kind of can't wait for Christmas, and to get away from the City for awhile. It's pretty during this time of year, but I'm just tired of it lately. I need a break.

Anyway, I seem to be shop-happy lately, which is so not like me. I'm feeling a little guilty about it, but what can you do. This cardigan was from the Tulle Cyber Monday sale... only $13! It's my new favorite, although really how can I say that any of my cardigans are my favorites? I love them all in their own special ways :P

Also... I realize that my shirt is a little messy. I swear I went over it with the lint roller before taking these photos! ...guess it didn't get everything.

  1. Oh, I use to collect Sanrio\Chococat when I lived in Japan! I still have a lot of stuff stored on shelves in the garage. My husband hates it! Isn't it funny that we feel guilty being happy sometimes, especially when all this other stuff is going on around us in the world? And I love what you are wearing, especially that skirt! -Jessica L

    I feel guilty when I shop, too :/. I've been spending a lot of money in Christmas presents not so much on myself, which makes me feel a bit less guilty, haha.
