Ruby Rises at Dawn


____So many pictures today! I'm sorry, I couldn't choose! They all turned out so loverly. Exploration yesterday led mother dearest, Jean Bob II, and me, to this school that was thankfully empty after its hours. It's so fancy! This is just a small part of it, too.


____While there, I also found my knight in shining armor. Unfortunately, he's not very social. I don't think it's going to work out between me and him since he doesn't like to move much. Or talk much. In fact, he's a total jerk. But you must admit, he's attractive, yeh? Look at those.. wait, where are his hands? Oh dear.

These pictures are so great! You look absolutely wonderful!
I love how bright and fun that red coat is, and it goes wonderfully with your black and white dress. :)

Ahhh, I've missed you! But you are back with a bang, this outfit rocks my socks. Only I'm not wearing socks today, I'm wearing tights.

Houndsy dress reminds me of my floral dress you styled for me, because of the super cute peplum.

I love the red pea coat, everyone NEEDS a red pea coat. Seriously.

Chic on the Cheap

THAT DRESS, HOUNDSTOOTH.
And fun fact... I'm currently wearing a houndstooth dress as I'm typing this right now. Like, woah.

Seriously, peplum houndstooth?? That's freakin' amazing. So are these photos. Don't you love it when a photo shoot is just clicking like bambambam? I hope you know what I mean. 'Cause I actually had the opposite today, I wasn't feeling any of my photos today. :/

But that's ok! PS: can't wait to hear from you, too. We seriously need to figure something out!

Fantastic buy with the red coat. Forty-five percent—SUCCESS. The dress looks really good on you, I really like the back but I haven't bought a similar one because I have no idea how to hide the bra strap.

I love Swan Princess. My favourite bit was the growing up montage. DUUUUUUUUCK!

Vanessa said...

Love the peplum on your skirt. It's a fantastic addition to a great, classic print. So cool.
I love hearing about your photo adventures, and where you've gone exploring. (I do the same thing!)
PS. I'm following you now! Why did that take me so long? No excuse. I didn't realize I wasn't since I'm always over at your site checking for updates! heeee.)

Louise said...

Sorry your new man is handless... but maybe you can work it out! Opposites attract.

Your houndstooth dress is glorious. I am in awe!

Hi! Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I love the description of yourself, finding something pretty in what others may find ugly.....I find myself doing that. Isn't that the most feminine thing a woman can do? Find the "Purdy" in the world? LOL ~Serene

this free bird said...

Your pictures turned out so perfectly - the colors are incredibly stark and clear.

I just adore the red coat over the houndstooth print. It looks wonderful!
