Going to New Lenghts

20 October 2010












Ah! I should really be studying right now rather than blogging,
but I finally got my new lens, and just had to experiment with it!
For those who are wondering, it is a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.
Oh, It was love at first sight. On another note,
I am having such fun playing with new hemlines on
skirts and dresses! It is so much fun to layer with, and it
really makes sitting/walking in the wind much easier. In fact,
I quite like it when I am wearing a flowy skirt and it is windy.
The dramatic movement of the fabric is a fun way to
walk around town. Plus the pattern of this one is to die
for.

Happy middle of the week, loves! Cannot wait until
the weekend.

PS- special thanks to my lovely roommate, Laura, for
helping improve my blog and helping me with outfit
photos. You.rock.a.lot.

That's awesome that you got a new lens! I can definitely tell the difference in the photo quality. You look stunning as usual, and I definitely am loving your skirt!

I think that skirt is a great length and looks really good with the stilettos, which keeps the outfit edgy.

I love love LOVE what you're wearing. The muted color scheme makes the mixed prints looks so sophisticated and your amazing shoes add the right amount of modern style to offset the length of the skirt. The silhouette of this outfit is incredible. Again, I love.

I really love the proportions of this outfit, it makes you look so amazingly tall!

SMASH said...

Love the print on your skirt, it sort of reminds me of a persian rug and the buttons running down the middle are the icing on the cake <3

I have a question for you. I also want cut my bangs so they can be from the side, like yours. So i want to ask do they always stay from the side or they fall.
I hope that you understand what i want to ask you XD

I have a Canon camera too but I'm still getting the hang of it... I had a freak out earlier in the week 'cuz it wouldn't focus properly, then I realised I'd got it switched on manual... the entire electronics store laughed at me :S
