Laced With Grace

I've been a bad, bad girl! I loved this dress from the moment I saw it online, so I caved and ordered it last week. I know, I know, I'm suppose to be on a budget. I was kinda hoping it would look hideous on me, so I could send it back. But, oh no, I pretty much love it, so I'm keeping it. I'm gonna have to do something really special for the hubby to redeem myself from this indescretion. To make it really worth all the trouble, I got my photographer friend to break out his camera today. All of these shots were taken in the back of our building. It's amazing all the cool places to take photos just in the small area around our building. We found several places for future photos. It's funny how the color of this dress changes shades depending on the light. The catalog shot looks like a really pale green, but it is much more vibrant in person. I'm wearing a size 8, so it fits true to size. I had a hard time accessorizing this morning, because there are so many things that look good with this dress. To belt or not to belt, that was the question? I went with belt, and I like how it turned out, but I think next time I will wear a longer necklace and not belt. Have a great night!

    Saskia: I believe the camera he uses is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi. I don't know about the lens and software. I will ask.

    Alex: I ordered a medium and large, and ended up going with the large. The medium fit, but it was super tight. I decided I wanted a little more room.
