In preparing for the upcoming weddings I'm shooting, I've been thinking a lot about what I'm going to wear myself. Did you know that most of my clothes are still in boxes in California? I've been wearing the same two suitcases (they're unpacked now) of clothes since July 3rd. If I could get an entire new wardrobe tomorrow I would burn everything I have. LOL Seriously. I'm over it all. Needless to say, I hadn't really considered wedding attire would be required so soon but that's okay with me! I've been looking around online for ideas. Let's remember that I'm balling on a budget here. ;) I also need to consider the fact that I'm working at these weddings.
1. Going Places Dress - I first walked into Francesca's while living in California. There is a store at Irvine Spectrum and just before I moved they were building one at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. I was super excited when I saw one at the mall here a couple of weeks ago. Until now, I had no idea their website was so cute too! The prices are reasonable and it has that boutique feel I love. I'm looking for a cute and flowy dress that I can move around in. I really like the color of this one going into Fall. I also like the sleeves. I often wear cardigans over dresses and it's going to be too hot for that outside but this might work. I think it's fun but still professional. I'm going to check out the store to see what they have on my "day off" Wednesday.
2. Jeffrey Campbell Woven Slingback Wedges - I know I would never actually be able to wear these shoes while photographing an entire wedding and I can't afford them anyway, but seriously, a girl could dream! Everything about these shoes make my heart go pitter patter. I will most likely wear these cute light brown braided flat sandals that I already own. ;)
3. Bee's Knees Jewelry - While it's in my possession it's in the forefront of my mind. This jewelry would rock any outfit.
4. Jo Totes - This is a camera bag with flare! I love the color, the size (and everything it fits), the lining fabric (Houndstooth! Are you serious?!) Everything about it screams JOleen (It's even named for me. Hehe!) I need this.
