A Dozen Red

An 8PM glow hangs over the city as one girl, all dressed up with seemingly nowhere to go, moves stride by stride down a long brick wall. As she nears the end an arm extends from the edge of the screen offering to her a dozen red roses.

Hello, hello, darlings! Let me just start by saying as you take scroll through these photos you will certainly notice that they take place at more than just my brick wall location. And, that is because on my way home from the brick wall I passed by the Tivoli, and it's sparkling sign met my passing gaze and I couldn't help but stop and snap a few there as well. So, did I ruin the cohesive aesthetic by doing so? Yes. Do I care? No. However, I will say that it wasn't as romantic as my previous lines made it seem due to a teenage couple that took about 30 minutes to snap their "girl is leading the boy towards the theatre by the hand" picture. I mean, I'm all for doing what you have to do to get the shot, so more power to them. I just felt kinda awkward lingering by and trying not to look like a creeper just staring in their direction the entire time waiting for that moment when they would finally walk away. Of course, they eventually did, and I got in a few photos of what I've deemed my "September Outfit". Something about the high waisted jeans, skinny belt, and clean off the shoulder top screamed modern day Grease to me, so it only felt natural to pair it with some bumper bangs. It's a total classic pinup look that doesn't look the least bit costumey, and therefore, is one I feel the desire to wear quite often. Each piece (except the shoes) is from Review, who so kindly gifted them to me, and if you haven't stopped by their site to check out all of their vintage inspired pieces then I'm gonna suggest you do that right...after you finish looking at my photos ;).
