Oh beautiful blossoms

15 April 2010





So I know that it is no surprise that I am not only
obsessed with floral patterns, but the actual floral
that surround me everyday! I absolutely had to
capture all of the lovely little blossoms around campus
and around town. Funny how they ended up matching
my dress. This dress is actually a skirt with an elastic
waistband. I simply pulled it higher and belted it, then
presto! Dress is made.

And now... a short little Q&A answer session!



Q- Where are you from?
A- I come from the great south! Dallas, Texas.
honestly not a place with a southern-vibe
at all really, but I like to pretend I am a southern girl.


Q- What do you do?
A-I am a student studying fashion. My interest
is in visual communications.


Q- Who takes your photos?
A- Typically its me and the ole' tripod. Every once
in a while I have friends/family take them for me. I
will not lie, I have definitely gotten several strange
looks/stares because I am not afraid to use self-timer
in public at all. If it makes a great photo, who cares!

Q-What languages do you speak?
English and farsi fluently ( I am half persian) and a little
bit of spanish and french.




Q- How do you style your hair?
A-My hair is very unruly, and has a natural wave to it.
To tame it/make it more presentable, I use a curling iron
and make a ringlet curl, them straighten the ends to turn
it more into a wave. It's a strange technique, but if you have
naturally wavy hair it works quite well.

Q- When is your birthday?
A- October 9th, 1988. I turned 21 this year and have
definitely been living it up!

Q- Are you still in London?
A- No, not at the moment. I studied there for a
semester and I am just DYING to get back. I studied
visual merchandising there.

Q- Do you have your own place?
Yes, I live in an apartment with two very very lovely
ladies, aka my best friends!

Q- What is your favorite movie character?
A- Hands down, Annie Hall from the Woody Allen film,
Annie Hall. I love how crazy and sporadic she is. Reminds
me of myself quite a bit.




Q- What kind of camera do you use?
A-a Canon G10 for digital, and a Canon Rebel film.


Q- How tall are you?
A-I'm a short 5 feet and 4 inches


Q- Have you ever wanted to become a professional model - or you have been/are?
Whoever asked this, youre so nice! But no and no. I don't fit the
requirements at all.





Q- What's your favori
te book?
A-Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. It is so beautiful!
Read it if you have not.

Q-A Perfect travel destination?
A- Scandanavian countries! Sweden, Norway, Denmark
Because they are beautiful and the fashion there intrigues me.


Q- Do you ever plan on leaving the town you are in now?
Definitely! I would love to move to either the East or West coast.
Cities I love include San Francisco, Boston, and New York.
Of course though... London would be my number one
dream choice.




And a lot of you asked so... about the boy:


Q- Where did you meet?
A- The dining hall on campus. We had no mutual friends, but I
just had to meet him! We also both eventually confessed
that we had been eying each other all year.


Q- How long have you been together?
A- We met in the end of April last year and have been
quite inseparable since. Minus that fact that we had to
move out of the dorms at college and had to do long
distance all summer, and of course all of last fall when I
was in London. It was well worth it though :) Plus
he's a swetie and drove to see me several times.


Q- What do you love about being with him?
A- Hmm tough question, there's just so many things! I
love that I can be myself completely when I am with him,
and that we can do just about anything together but it is still
fun. He encourages my creativity and inspires me with his (he
plays music, writes, and is always somehow showing me something new).
Basically I thought the "perfect person" didn't exist but I'm convinved
I've found him.


Well.... those are all of the questions for now! If anyone has any
questions they are dying to ask that I let out, just let me know.

Hey :)
(First of all i'm french so sorry for the very likely mistakes!)
Sorry about asking you again about that, but i've just read this interview, and especially the part about your boyfriend and also the beginning of these comments, and i had a question: what did you tell him when you got to introduce yourself? Bcs i'm actually in the same kind of situation, everyday i see a boy at the cafeteria of my university and we keep looking at each other, and i think he's probably a bit interested in me (and what is sure is that i'm interested in him ;)!), and i was thinking of maybe going to talk to him, but what to tell: "hey, i think i like you, would you want to get to know me?"??
I know this is quite an awkward question bcs it is very precise and intimate, and perhaps you don't even remember how you began to talk with him, but when i read your story, i really made me think of me, so i needed to ask you :)
Thanks in advance if you've read everything and if you want to answer me, you can perhaps do it by my email (sophie.dln@laposte.net), but if you don't, it doesn't matter i would understand :)!
And finally i just wanted to say that i love your sense of style, so girly, this is all i love about clothes (i'm also mad of dresses and skirts ;)!)
Have a good evening! xx
Sophie
