looking back on flickr archives: whats changed in a year?









The past few days have been really odd here in Arkansas; snow's been falling like crazy and school's been canceled every day. In the past two weeks I've missed more school due to snow than students have missed in the past three years combined. It's been a winter wonderland full of giant snowflakes and unusually freezing temperatures, and since we lack the equipment to clean it off the roads it's been a guaranteed party at my house. Lot of friends, lots of snowball fights, lots of Wii competitions.

I guess the only downfall is that I've lost complete interest in fashion and surrendered all my efforts to comfort, leaving me with very little options as to blog content. Hence, the old flickr archives. It's funny to see the difference in weather from last February to this one, but I assure you all the old photos are from then. This is a small scale shoot Cody did for one of his beginner photography classes. The assignment had to do with highlighting someone 'on the job' so Cody choose to focus on my work as a fashion designer (I only did a few pieces before giving up the hobby) and as a vintage shop owner (boy, do I look like a quitter).

His creativity and off beat thinking never ceases to amaze me.

Shirt: F21 $4
Jeans: Target $20

Thsi february is crazy. But all februarys are crazy in Chicago. The snow doesn't really stop here until late March if we are lucky.

Also, you need to do a how to on how you do your hair like that! It looks so pretty! I have major issues with updos of any sort!
