so we sit in the garden and touch the grass with our hands

details: strapless pink floral dress (kensiegirl), brown sandals (payless), silver lone hopper rabbit necklace (swap with katrina, visit her etsy shop)

i've had this dress since freshman year of college, but it's still one of my favorites! too bad it's hard to find kensiegirl stuff around here though. they stopped carrying it at the dillard's in palmdale. :P

anyway, kelsi of dedicated follower of fashion needed an intern to help out with a photo shoot for her client, tminx, and chose me! i got to help out with the styling a bit, as well as the photoshoot itself. it was a lot of fun and i learned a lot.

tminx makes really cute, soft tees with vintage fashion-inspired prints!
check them out here.

i'll also be going to MAGIC (a fashion tradeshow in Las Vegas) with them in a couple of weeks, so i'm really excited! i went last year on a field trip, so it will be fun to experience it from within (and without essays and journals to worry about!). will anyone else be there? let me know, because it'd be fun to see you! :)

Love you E xx

That dress looks great on you! :) Love it!

Thanks for visiting my blog and the compliments! And of course I don't mind! I use a Sony Cybershot 7.2 megapixels (ie. small, silver 4 year old digital cameria). xD I really want a cool SLR or fancy camera though! I feel like my Cybershot limits me sometimes. I edit them almost always. Thanks for asking! :) You have really great pics yourself! :D

Your blog is so bright and fun! I'm excited to be a new follower and I'm flattered that you are following mine. :)

so fun!
i'll be at magic as well! said...

i think it's awesome that you got to help out with styling a shoot!! Are you going to be posting photos (Were you allowed to take photos)?

i'm reallyreallyreally happy to see your lone hopper is getting a lot of love. hehe i'm so glad you like the necklace. <3

ok, as promised, here is my hacked up version of a light sangria:
- 1/3 bottle of shiraz (or any white) wine
(the Two-Buck Chuck wine at Trader Joe's works really well... and it's only $2.99!)
- 2L bottle of Sprite/7-Up (you'll only need a little over half of this bottle
- one of each: Lime, lemon, orange, grapefruit
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup of orange juice
- optional: 1/4 cup of brandy (I usually skip this, but feel free to add if you want more of a "kick")

Mix all of the liquids first. Cut the citrus fruits into either cubes or slices. I usually slice them and then peel off the skins. Throw the fruits into the liquid mix, stir well, and voila! you're done!

Let me know if you end up trying this out! I personally like lighter sangrias so feel free to play with the measurements a bit. I've accidentally added 3/4 of a bottle of wine before and it was waaay too strong, but still a nice summery fruit punch! haha
