Muted tones

I have been going through the pictures that I took yesterday at Balboa Park and Coronado and I like a bunch of them. I am having trouble deciding which are my favorites. So, I may be posting all kinds of different ones from the same day because I like too many. Tons more to come soon:)

All That Glitters Is Gold

Today I went down to Balboa Park, in San Diego. It's such a beautiful place and it's wonderful to take pictures at. I went there with my friend to scout out some cool locations to come back to. While we were looking around for good spots for the next time we go there we shot a few pictures. I was bummed because we got there a little too late in the afternoon and the clouds were blocking most of the sunlight. After we went to Balboa park we cruised over to Coronado Island and took a few pictures on the beach.

For now, here are two pictures. The first is from Coronado Island and the second one, Balboa Park. I will be editing plenty more soon:) I'll keep you posted.

Of course, my styling for this shoot is vintage:) Except the shoes, those are from Reflection. I couldn't resist buying them.

Going to Balboa Park

Today, my friend and I are going to do some location scouting and take a few pictures as we go. Here is the outfit we will be photographing later today. And I will be adding this yellow mesh purse to my etsy store later this week.

My Little Sweetheart Pepper

I couldn't resist taking these photos of my little pup Pepper. She's actually full grown but, she's still as tiny as a puppy:) I love her wild hair and her huge bat-like ears!

Forever Sweetheart Contest - Chictopia

As I was getting ready to enter this outfit into my Chictopia. I came across there Forever Sweetheart Contest and decided I should enter this outfit. So here is my entry:)
Self Portrait.

Playsuit: Vintage, thrifted and then altered.
Shoes: Vintage, purchased at a thrift store for only $3.00.
Socks: Macy's, Pink lace trouser socks I folded over.
Umbrella: Vintage, thrifted

Playing around in an altered playsuit. Believe it or not this little jumper had long pants. I gave it one look and I just knew it need to be altered into shorts! I think it came out darling. In fact, too darling. I wanted to sell it on Etsy but, I have fallen in love with it and can not do it yet.

Photography Update

Lately, I have been working on building a photography portfolio. I am becoming very passionate about photography and I am more and more inspired by vintage clothing for my photo shoots. These photos were taken earlier today in my dining room. Yep, I have a couch in my dining room.

I have several more pictures that I need to add to my blog. One set includes an adorable playsuit, that I altered this week. I had planned to sell it on Etsy but, once I put it on, I think I have decided I can't part with it yet. I did do a self portrait photoshoot in it and I will be posting some of those photos soon.

For now, here are a few of Model Mayhem's lovely model and mommy of one, Britagne!
