Those Little Ordinary Things





As you can see, Vester is thrilled with this kitty hug.



Miku doesn't like when all of the attention isn't on her, so she does everything she can to shift focus her way.


Outfit Details:
vintage dress - Fellsmere Inn
tights - courtesy of Accessorize
Dany platforms - courtesy of Jessica Simpson Collection

I have had this dress for years (at least five or six), but this is only my third time wearing it. I have a tendency to completely forget about certain items in my closet and instead, get in a routine of wearing the same things over and over again. This dress has become a victim of both tendencies, since I didn't wear it for years but have now worn it three times in less than a month. The first time I wore this dress, which was only a few weeks ago, I was in Florida and didn't have a long enough slip on hand. Though completely opaque, the fabric is a little clingy and it absolutely requires a slip unless you are okay with everyone knowing exactly what your behind looks like. Let's just say that my mom and Amanda spent most of the day laughing at me while I tried to cover my butt with my [thankfully large] purse.

Lesson learned.

  2. Cute dress, but Miku is totally stealing your limelight. She's such a ham; I love it.

    I am also totally coveting your tights.

  7. The dress is gorgeous. Wear it as much as you like. I think we have all fallen victim of the see through dress at one time or another. Here's to learning fashion lessons the hard way.

  14. That is a gorgeous dress! I love the picture of your cat :o)

  15. I love these pictures, they're so pretty! But my favorite thing is Miku photobombing your shoot! My dog did the same thing last night, he saw the flash going off from my camera on auto-timer and jumped on the bed to see what was going on. I wish I had your mad photography skills though, my tripod consisted of a cardboard box, lol!

  33. You look so so pretty. Your photos have stunning clarity, and your pets are so cute! I'm an amatuer photographer and recently I've been getting more requests to take pictures for people. So I was wondering what kind of camera do you use?

    ReplyDelete

  36. Incorporating your pets into the pictures made them all so adorable! Your story about your dress ordeal in Florida made me laugh. You look very pretty in it, glad you remembered it and are showing it off again.

  46. My kitty isn't a big fan of corporal cuddling either.

  47. Love this post...Well, all of yours since I am your newest follower :)

  48. First, thank you to everyone. Miku's ego is blowing up.

    Leigh: Miku always steals my spotlight...it's just my way of life:) She is painfully cute!

    Marybeth: The answer is obvious - Miku! I wish I had a video of how much of a ham she was being.

    Kayla: Sadly, I have had this issue before. I don't know why I haven't learned my lesson!

    Gabby: I just saw it - thank you so much!

    Danielle: I'm convinced she would make millions. She has more personality than any pup I've ever met.

    Eclectic Flair: The second Miku sees a camera, she runs into the shot. She even did that at my sister's wedding. And don't worry about your setup - my tripod is several years old and parts are broken and glued back on. Luckily, Bobby was around to take these pictures:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yasmeen: I'm a total cat lady. Worse, I'm just an animal lady. I talk to them all like a crazy person. And the shoes - I do wear them a lot. I have a tendency to wear things to death - I do the same thing with favorite songs.

    Jessica: Thank you! I *think* I was wearing julie hewett cheekie in bette. That's what it looks like (and it's my go-to). It was either that or Laura Mercier's lip stain in Hibiscus with Designer Beige lipstick (also Mercier) over the top.


    Julia: Not frightened, but definitely annoyed with me. Haha he's an awesome cat - he puts up with a lot of our crap.

    fourthScarlett: I use a Nikon D90 - these were taken with a 35mm 1.8 lens. I switch between the 35 and 50mm and then I also have the kit lens (18-55)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Bee and Taylor: I can't remember if I was wearing Julie Hewett cheekie in bette or Laura Mercier's lip stain in Hibiscus with Laura Mercier Designer beige lipstick over the top. They look kind of similar in photos but the latter has a slight gloss to it. As for the cheeks, it's a blush by E.L.F.!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Melanie: My cats all love to cuddle...but only on their terms. They're such control freaks.

    ReplyDelete
  52. those tights are someone! and I do believe you're the only woman in the tristate area who makes a haphazard bun look amazing.

  63. That dress is so gorgeous on you it is only natural you are celebrating your re-discovery with quite a few wears :D

    I recently wore a dress under a wool coat and static built up until my maxi dress rode up to be a super mini. I kept sticking my hand under my coat to smooth it down every five minutes LOL
