I was working on my usual Wisdom Wednesday post, when Tim sent over the batch of photos from our shoot this past Monday. I quickly stopped in my tracks and lost all focus as I "ooh'd" and "ahhh'd" over his amazing, amazing photography. I assure you one thing: I am not a model. I blink 9/10 times when people count to three, I make really awkward faces, I don't know how to "smize" (as Tyra would say), and I don't know my angles. Having said that, when you work with an patient, fun, and extremely talented photographer, such as Tim, somehow, with very little help from my end, you get amazing photos such as these. I've wanted to shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts for some time now. I've mentally put together scores of outfits and thought about different concepts for shoots. Finally, I got lucky and this happened. We were fortunate that day, as the rain stopped pouring and the tourists stayed away, which ultimately lead to rather peaceful result.

I got this dress (which I styled as a skirt) a while back at Forever 21 and fell in love with the terra cotta color. The vintage sequined top I picked up at Crossroads for a whopping $7.50. Yeah. You read that right. I love everything about it, from the intricate design to the lovely detailing at the top. The shoes, I've worn maybe twice now and have quickly come to the realization that while I do love to collect heels, I cannot for the life of me walk in them. To be fair, these shoes are half a size too big, which is probably the reason why I can't walk in them. Sure they're about five inches tall, but sky's the limit right? If anyone thinks they can show the shoes more love than I can, let me know as I'm thinking of putting them up for sale. Stay tuned for round two from Monday's shoot. You can bet your bottom dollar that Tim's photos won't disappoint.
