calivintage 's Thoughts:

hello again.

today i took another shot at self-photography. it’s gonna be a long summer if i have to keep on doing this. yes, yes, the tripod, right? i still haven’t gotten one. so here is my trick of propping the camera on top of a book on top of the couch. i never really realized the benefits of having my boyfriend as my photographer. i can ask him to please make me look thin. haha! my couch is much less responsive.

anyway, here is a vintage jersey dress. one of many in a large collection that i amassed a few years back, which have mostly been sold by now. i kept this and one other because i just loved the details too much. except you can’t really see that there are little birds perched on each shoulder because the photos are too small. i didn’t know how to get a close-up.

and now i am off to do some sewing and hemming and other crafty things. i really need some of those vintage one-yard patterns. my mom gave me several old feedsacks and i’m dying to sew them into dresses and blouses, but i want a cool pattern so i don’t mess it up. i should probably be scouring the thrift stores for some!

and read more at my blog.

I thought you layered a t-shirt under a tube dress. I love that it's all one piece. Such a cute piece that you can just throw on and go!

Oh you can actually kind of see the birds but not the details. Love your dress. The color is so rich and beautiful. Laughed in real life about the unresponsive couch comment :)

It's a pretty dress. I love little details like also. I hate my self-photography but my camera is too small for a tripod and I saving up for a Nikon.
