The Outs

by jennine on May 26, 2010

One of the advantages of blogging, is you can publish as many pictures as you want in a post. In print, well, space is limited. When John Lee came over to take photos of me, we decided my vintage polka dot dress would be the best for the shoot. It’s my favorite dress, and it’s graphic enough to translate well in photographs. We were sure that the 7×7 editors were going to pick the yellow dress, but they didn’t. So, I’m showing you here, the out. I quite like the photo, it’s so different from how I see myself, and so different from the way I take photos. Perhaps I need to start thinking about taking more photos in my natural environment…though most often I’m laying on my side under a throw watching Hulu. Yep… the glamorous life.

I absolutely adore this picture of you and love seeing you in vintage! This is such a glamorous, coquettish picture of you. I wish they would’ve used both!

You look lovely. And I love your dress - polka-dots are a weakness for me.

They both look good- the editors must’ve had a tough job choosing between them.

I would have gone with this dress too. not that the other one is not as gorgeous, but I think this one makes a stronger statement.

You’re a knockout, doll. And I’m sure that holds true even when you ARE curled up watching Hulu.
