Corey and I took these photo sometime last week in Argenta on the north side of the Arkansas River. Argenta's only a few minutes from my house and full of some of the greatest old buildings downtown. It's really not that big of a place and if you feel asleep and woke up on the Main Street stretch, you'd swear you had been transported back to the early twentieth century – don't blink or you might miss it!

This building is set just off the main road and seemed like a good match for my outfit. I know I've talked about these days before, but you know when you think you look cute and then you see the photos? This was one of those days! I felt so good in this outfit, like a vagabond, ready for anything, but as soon as I saw the photos, I made Corey stop – which explains why I only had a handful photos to pick from! I think a few of them looked okay, but for the most part, the denim cutoffs with my big, lace up boots were just unflattering on my curvy body – notice the boots were left out! At least I was able to salvage some photos from the trip.

On a completely random note, rumor has it someone really special will be staying in the hotel I work at soon. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to talk about yet, as we learned when Johnny Depp stayed there a few weeks back – ALL of my coworkers were talking about it on facebook causing a sit down talk with the manager and a handbook letting us know what we were not allowed to say – so i figured I'd just give you a small hint of who might be coming. So, here it is. 

He's Italian-American with a long line of family members who have followed in his footsteps. 

I know that's not the best hint, but I had to keep it kind of vague. Any guesses?

Johnny Depp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????? ahhhhh! ;o)

A bunch of girls got in trouble at a shop I used to work at when John Travolta came to shop and they followed him around. Me I was good and just teared up and made John talk to me, hehe. Crying is my secret!
Hmmm, Italian/American...Is it Joe Montana? I met him once!

You look fabulous btw!!

martin scorsese? lol

Justice Pirate said...

goodness gracious you told him to stop? your body is too amazing for words! . . .maybe I think that way since I am so unbusty though.

I love these shots big time. Have fun with meeting (if you end up meeting) the star that comes to your hotel. I honestly can't think of who it might be. I think the guesses made have been good ones though!

This outfit is perfect!!

Kerri @ OldLadyChic said...

is it The Situation??? lol I have no clue. But you look amazing, I can't believe you got that from savers! That place rocks.

Rhiannon said...

Another guess for Mr. Coppola!

I love your outfit and how modern it looks, and I think you look great in that sort of hat! Especially with that outfit . . . it works so well.

nancy : The Sway Report said...

I vote Coppola too! Holy cow. I just love the color palette of the photos, the rust and grey. It's really nice. Starr, I'm smiling over here a little bit because you said, "my curvy body," but when I saw your post today (even before reading the text), I thought, "wow, she looks so thin!"

The moral of the story is: don't be hard on yourself, you're beautiful!

This look is intimidatingly cool... the bag is so awesome!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

Coppola!? And yeah, I hate it when you get back from a photo shoot to discover your outfit wasn't all that you thought. At least some of yours were salvagable!

Shelby said...
