There is something about this rose garden that is so magical. When the sun sets, it just illuminates the bushes & roses just so-hence the magical part.  Yet, I must remind myself to pop an allergy pill to avoid such sneezing fits as this day...and every other day.

That dress is the long dress at H&M that many people were coveting ever since Caylee tweeted about it when it came into her store location. Lucky for me, I found the last one stuffed between a mass of clothes at my local H&M when I went browsing a month ago. As much as I love my long dresses, I always mess around with length and twisting and such. If you look closely in the first photo, you can see my safety pin. :) I twisted the middle of the skirt at the bottom and pulled it to the side to create an asymmetrical hem & made it shorter. I pinned it to my bra seam so it wouldn't pull on the actual fabric of the dress. I did it to my LF long dress in October last year. That dress is thicker however, so the look achieved was a bit different than the one now.

I still haven't found a photographer yet but luckily I've got good friends who are willing to step in (thanks lex!). But I really feel like my self-timer shots don't compare to the shots I can get when someone else takes them. I believe in settings- although I'm sure this could be argued across the board. The place where I want to take pictures somehow resemble editorial shots which is why I favor a photog.

So, I've got a few things in the works-a few videos I'm working on, a couple collabs and some awesome news. I also was invited to the Marshalls-TJ Maxx Behind the Seams event which I'll be posting about this week so stay tuned for that.

xx.
