I mentioned last week that a few of my friends and I took a mini road trip to visit Jenn (whose name, let's face it, you should all know by now) and that we visited an antique store. What I didn't tell you, though, was that this photo shoot came out of it. I honestly hadn't expected to take outfit photos that day, and while I do love this outfit, I'm almost positive I've worn pretty much the exact same look or at least a slight variation of it on here before. However, when Mary decided that we had to take pictures inside the adorable store, how could I say no? Stumbling upon this table, complete with a bouquet of flowers and a teacup, was kismet — like the blog gods planned it.
I should mention that I've never actually read the book "Texas," but my friend Beth played prop master for the shoot and grabbed a random one in the store. I don't know why I don't have a prop master at all of my outfit shoots.
Speaking of reading, if you'd like to know what I've been up to (aside from pretending to have tea parties at antique stores) in my free time, I've been getting really into a couple of graphic novels lately. One of my best friends, Adam, and my advisor at the paper, Rich, are HUGE comic and graphic novel collectors, and I finally decided to take them up on one of their recommendations. I bought the first volume of "Y: The Last Man," which is about a plague that wipes out all men on earth except one (so basically a world full of women), with a gift card and instantly got hooked. I mentioned to Rich that I really loved it, but didn't want to spend the money on buying the rest at the moment. He doesn't own them, so instead, he brought me a bunch from a different series he has and thought I'd like, "Fables." It's essentially the dark/realistic sides to fairytale characters after they've been forced out of their homes, and it's fantastic. Think that show, "Once Upon a Time," but much darker and more graphic (it came out years before the show and isn't related). What I'm trying to get at here is that apparently I'm becoming a graphic novel person now, and that's pretty awesome if you ask me.
