Today’s outfit was shot entirely on location! It’s not often that I do my outfit photography outside of my home studio. I like working in an environment with controlled lighting and no looky-loos. Sometimes for car shows we leave the house rather early, so I don’t really have time to photograph before we leave (and often I end up doing half my makeup on the way, anyway). There was a moment at this show where the lighting was nice and the crowds were relatively thin, so Mr. Kitty took advantage of the opportunity to get some shots as proof that I really do sometimes expose myself to the outdoors. Reluctantly.
Orange is not my favorite color for cars, or anything else, but this one happened to be in our nice quiet location so we used it as a backdrop. It’s not our car. I don’t know who’s car it is. But the detailing is quite amazing, despite the color.
I’m glad we were able to get some photos of this outfit after all. I wore my coveted Alchemy Gothic locket and a pair of chenille arm warmers from Sock Dreams, and carried my Battenburg lace parasol. This parasol isn’t great for long stretches of sun exposure (yeah, sun comes right through lace!), but most of this show was indoors so I knew the time spent outside would be minimal and broken up throughout the day. The ruffly purse was a Wal-Mart find. I don’t usually shop there, but once in a while we go to pick up something that Target was out of stock on. And then we browse out of morbid curiosity. And this purse was an awesome deal at $7.
I’ve mentioned before that most decent car shows have a few vendors there designed to keep the ladies happy. At this show, I scored two huge hair flowers and these earrings. I know, you can’t really see the earrings here, but consider this a teaser. I’ll be featuring them close-up in my next post.
