Getting pictures of this outfit was a ridiculous struggle. So, I apologize for the weird lighting and the strange reflector-demon-eyes I have going on--my eyes have green, brown, and blue shades in them, and when photographed with lighting, they look red because of the contrast between the brown and the other shades...it's never my pupils creating red-eye...it's always my irises. Weird right?
I guess what I'm meaning to say (aside from the fact that hazel eyes are crazy hard to photograph in weird lighting), is that my shirt and skirt had a pretty intense disagreement today. On the scale of subversion to Mutually Assured Destruction, I'm pretty sure that my clothes fell somewhere in the Civil War neighborhood. They didn't get along at all and chose to spend time struggling to separate during picture time. The tank bunched up because the belt and skirt refused to hold it in place, and the cardigan wanted nothing to do with the conflict (and decided to disarm itself and remain neutral...wow, Whitney...too far).
I took pictures at home before I left for work this morning, but I didn't quite like the pictures. Then, I took more when I arrived at work...those didn't turn out well either. I am completely aware that if an outfit doesn't work in pictures, the odds are that it looks strange in person, as well, but I loved the idea of this outfit and I wanted to get at least one flattering picture of it, dang it. After giving up briefly to settle for my comfy homework clothes, I rallied the troops, put my clothes back on and tried again (Reconstruction -- get it?)
Thanks for indulging my history nerd humor. I think it will hold me over for a while.
