still searching

11-17-0911-17-09
vintage striped one piece, thrifted skirt, old jazz shoes, bdg cardigan

Only one more week until I get my new camera! I love using my film camera but it's too expensive to develop film once or twice a week. The quality of the photos I take with my broken camera is dreadful but I'm trying my best to work with what I have. I'm heading home in exactly a week and coming back to the Bay the day of my birthday. I still have not found my perfect birthday dress and may just end up wearing something I already have or buying a random dress at Zara or H&M. I'm actually really tempted to buy the Shipley & Halmos dress that I modeled for Tobi a couple months ago. I'd like to find a simple strapless cocktail dress that I can wear two different ways: first, with my family on Saturday and second, with BF for dinner on Sunday night. Anyone have any suggestions?

And so the pictures don't seem completely unrelated to the text: I threw this outfit together last minute after a night of fishing around in my closet. The striped top is actually one of those old school one pieces (with the buttons at the crotch and everything). I also haven't worn this skirt in ages plus the shoes are ones that I wore for a dance class in high school. I'd love to go out shopping but this will do for now. I also found the photo below which I took last year around this time. I dislike the cold weather most of the time but this photo reminds me the reasons why I love autumn so much.
