Myriam

I miss all the extra free time I had to style shoots and take photos this past spring. It seems that school has kept me far too busy to organize any fun photo shoots this season (other than the one I did with Mitzi), and with Corey taking my outfit photos now, I rarely get to use my camera anymore. Of course, there's always my new job and the daunting task of asking complete strangers if I can take their photos, and the occasional Thrift Trip Magic post, but other than that, I don't really get to be too creative with it. That's why I asked Myriam if she'd come over to play dress up and take glamor shots with me last week.
Lace Tee, Pleated Skirt, Cashmere Cardigan: Goodwill // White Rabbit Necklace: Midtowne Antique Mall // Granny Fringe Black Boots: Ebay // Beige Snakeskin Waistbelt: Wolfe Street // Burgundy Beret: Gift
The original plan was for me to style a look for her, but when she showed up at my front door I thought she looked far too cute to restyle! We went to a couple of really filthy and rather uninteresting abandoned houses where Myriam found a coffee pot, an umbrella handle, and a whole bunch of old buttons. Being the crafty one that she is, she tossed the junk and kept the buttons! If you're ever looking for another Little Rock personal style blog to read, I most definitely recommend Myriam's blog to you. It's called Myriad of Mischief, and she is so stinkin' adorable with a really great (and reasonably priced) Etsy shop too!

looks so fun. It's been ages since I did anything like this! I'm on the hunt for a DSLR. What kind do you have, and did you get a good deal on it?
