Summer Essentials

27 June 2010










So... I finally got my camera back, hurray!

Except for one little thing. They totally
ruined my lense, and now photos taken
from a distance turn out blurry! For example:
the second picture. Blurry right? Please tell me
your opinions so I can know whether I am being
a perfectionist or not.

Anyways, the accesories in this photos are
my current summer essentials. Straw hat,
vintage brown leather bag, and clogs!
I have basically been living in these things, I
am truly obsessed. I wore this outfit to
a wedding and have grown quite smitten with
this dress as well. Can't wait to dress it up/down.

What are your summer essentials?

Wearing: Francesca's Collections dress; f21 hat; vintage bag; Steve Madden Clogs

I have to agree that the pictures are a bit blurry. what did they repair on your camera? I would take it back for a look if I was you... good luck!

Wife-a-Licious said...

DEFINITELY blurry. Your poor camera woes. :(

Shelby said...

I do think that the pictures are blurry. You are not being a perfectionist, your camera is broken! I feel your pain. On the bright side, your cuteness and fashionsense are still quite clear!

my summer essentials--my 2 finger ring, flats, and lots and lots of headbands!

I am sorry to say but the second photo is definitevely blurry.
the dress looks very nice. and now you must be quiet skilled with walking in clogs. i have to say that i did not buy any yet but your outfit looks great. I love the red print of the dress...

eleanor said...

yup, blurry :( i am having the same problem with my camera! grr!

you look gorgeous, that dress is perfect on you!

and i am so in love with the picture of your shoes with the flowers!

TO be honest darling, yes the 2nd photo is kinda
blurry. I noticed it first then read what you've written. Huh, i hope your cam will get it fix soon :-)

Becca Jane said...

I love that pretty floral dress! So cute.

natalie said...

Yep, as everyone else has said, unfortunately it's definitely blurry ): That, well, sucks. They'd better take care of that! But still, you look lovely and I love the straw hat.

Indie.Tea said...

What a great outfit...I love the dress, its so perfectly summery.
But yeah, the pictures are blurry. Sorry...

I will agree with everyone else, the pictures are definitely blurry. I think the first picture looks a tad distorted, too, not just the second one. If you have a Canon camera, you could always call customer service and ask about the Canon Loyalty Program. Basically, you trade in your camera for an upgraded, newer refurbished model that costs about half the price that it's retailed at and that's considerably less than getting your current camera repaired. It also comes with a six month warranty. I just traded in my old Canon that had a lens problem, and got a G11 for $273 (it retailed at $500 when it was released last year). They give you three cameras to choose from depending on the model you have. I had a S series Canon, so I was offered the PowerShot SX10 IS, the G11, and Rebel XS. The offers range from the cheapest camera to a dslr. I went for the middle camera, being the G11 and I love it!

I hope you get your camera problem squared away and soon. :)

I'm glad the store didn't lose your camera! But I'm sorry to hear they ruined your lens. =(

I think that it's not your being picky, a lens that has a correct focus is very important!

Hopefully your lens isn't actually damaged and maybe you can get it calibrated. It might be a setting you can adjust on your camera. What kind do you have? If it's a Canon, there's a little dial by the flash that adjusts the focus. Hopefully this helps?

Anyway you look so cute as usual. The last photo is my fav. I always love your creative shots.

Manja said...

I think my summer essentials are my floral shorts and my brown flat leather sandals.
Yes, the second picture is definitely blurry, that sucks that they ruined the lens - can't you complain?

MiracleBox said...

★ Nina Saiful said...

OOOH! Despite the blurry photos, you look great! Loove the clogs, I've fallen into the clogs trend and I never thought I'd like them. HAHA.

My summer essentials are frocks with laces or pastel colored skirts or a floral dress. And an old leather brown bag! :D

Lovely blog, I'm definitely linking you.

Megan said...

Gorgeous outfit!
And the photos are definitely blurry. I'm a new follower and not sure what kind of camera you use and how experienced you are with it but you may want to check the settings... Maybe it's set on macro? Or auto-focus is turned off? There are a number of little things worth checking before you send it back. I know that can be a big pain.

I read on a previous post of yours that you have a Canon G10. Check out their customer loyalty program, and get a new refurbished model at a huge discount. Customer Loyalty Program’s direct number is 866-443-8002.

If you don't want to get a refurbished camera (which is guaranteed to be as good as new), I'd call the place that did the repair on your G10 and request that they fix it again (free of charge) or replace it.

Honestly, the all of the photos, except for the close-up of your shoes look too soft and blurry. I can barely make out the print on your dress, because the camera doesn't seem to be focusing correctly. And the photos show some obvious barrel distortion at the wide end of your lens.

Love your blog, and those shoes! Fantastic!

janettaylor said...

Yes, blurry! But Ur outfit is superb cute as always!

HoneyBunny said...

Oh you're finally back with your outfits! I'm so happy about it:)
Too bad they destroyed your lens;(( Hope it can be repaired though!

You look adorable as always and I love your dress! <3

I just discovered your blog and I'm in love! Where in TX are you from, if you don't mind me asking?

That dress is great and the print is lovely. I agree that the second pic is a bit blurry, but I still love this outfit none the less!

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

Yeah, the picture does look a bit blurry. You should go back and tell them they ruined your lens.

That's such a pretty dress.

Wedges are my summer essential. Can't get enough of them.

Jessica said...

It is blurry. That is so weird that would happen to your camera. I hope something can be done about it.

That dress is so cute and definitely agree that a straw hat is a great summer accessory. I need to get one myself!
