an outfit post, awkwardly.
It's rather obvious ... but here at blouse - jane is the one in front of the camera and I (jen) am the one behind the camera. And I think it's safe to say the two of are are very comfortable in those places.
But -- today, during a shoot I was doing with a friend + her dog, I let her turn the camera (well, one of the cameras) on me and I posed, awkwardly, on a public street. I kept trying to remember what all these fancy fashion bloggers do - do I look down? do I touch my head? toes in, right? right???
I can't believe I had a small panic attack about something I happen to do all the time. You know, standing up. In conclusion - I'm not quite sure how much of this in front of the camera business I can handle. I do love it behind the camera. I don't have to wash my hair that often or be worried that what I'm thinking on the inside is showing on the outside.
I found this dress at the thrift store ... someone sewed two different dresses together and yes, I probably will attempt to take credit for it if a stranger asks me if I made it. I'm not proud of that. And the shoes! I also found these vintage lace-less oxfords and I'm in love and vainly trying to cram my foot in their bit too smallness. If the blisters continue ... I suppose I'll have to donate them.
And here's a few photos from the real shoot that was happening today ... Shauna + Alex were looking for a little holiday photoshoot for some christmas cards ... We had a lot of fun roaming the adorable cobblestone streets of Providence and posing in front of garland and red bows.
