In The Fashionista's Closet: Squinty McLaughsALot

Sometimes the ridiculousness of  this blogging thing becomes transparent and I have to laugh about it. Photos. Of me. And my outfits. People read what I write, look at my pics and comment. Repeat. 

So whenever I begin to take myself too seriously, things like today happen.



I recruited coerced a new photographer today and chaos is the best word to describe the shenanigans that took place. We took photos close to the school and cars kept slowing down and people were peering out of their windows. And honking. And teachers were waving. And yelling out of their cars, "What are you DOING?"




  And in the meantime I'm giving instructions (ok, yelling) at the "photographer" 
"Take multiple pictures. Take it now! Take one while I'm walking. Ok, another. It doesn't have to be centered! Stop waiting!" She obviously didn't follow any of my instructions and only took pics when I was squinting, laughing hysterically or if there were telephone poles or people in the photos. 



But I don't blame her, she was trying to do me a favor. I laughed at myself later for being so demanding. Why didn't I use my tripod and just take my own photos after the whole debacle, you ask? Because it's Friday. And I have stuff to do. So these will have to do.

LMBO! I think your pics look great! I take pictures at my school all the time and one of the secretaries is nice enough to be my photographer(she now thinks she is Annie Leibovitz), but we have to take them quickly, before students and parents come into the office.
