Cuz You Can’t Deny You’ve Blown My Mind When I See You Baby I Just Don’t Wanna Let Go

A little while back, I received this beautiful Plastic Island Dark Romance Blouse from Shop The Far Out, as a prize from Song of Style’s giveaway. When I opened the giant box in the mail, I was so thrilled with the alluring detail of the blouse. In fact, my photos probably don’t do the blouse enough justice, because the sheer fabric, the unique cut, and the gorgeous back stitching is even better in person. And, as you know, I’m making a conscious effort to wear a bit more color in my life. So, the rich green color of the blouse is just another added bonus to my closet. I paired the blouse with some red and black jeggings and a good pair of chunky wedges. Now, normally, this outfit and color combination isn’t something I would normally put together. But, as soon as I pulled out the jeggings from the pile of pants I keep hidden in my drawers, I knew it was a match made in heaven.

Funny story: We were initially on our way to shoot at a different location, but as soon as I passed by these old, abandoned brick buildings, I knew it would be the perfect place to snap some photos. So, stop we did. This sketchy “security” guy parked across the street and attempted to hide his obvious creeper curiosities, but it was quite obvious he wondered what we were up to when we started setting up to shoot. DJ and I like to blast some tunes while we shoot (something about the music helps loosen us both up), so I guesssss I can see how it would be kind of weird to the observing eye when two ladies are blasting what sounds like trashy techno club music and pretending they are on an episode of ANTM (America’s Next Top Model, for those who weren’t sure). I assure you my musical tastes are a bit more than that, but I do love me a good guilty pleasure song every once in a while. At the very end of our shoot, after we made our way through the nooks and crannies of the abandoned lot, we found the cutie-patootie horse you saw up there. He was a very friendly horse, but I was still reluctant to pet him. Definitely saw him GNAWING on the metal bar before he approached me, and I just got my nails done, so I was not down for that. Would have made a great photo though, eh?
