Impromptu Photo Shoot

I rarely post photos of myself on here mostly because they never turn out!  I'd like to do a "what I wore" photo once in awhile, but the photos don't do the clothes justice, so I refrain.  My five yr old snaps photos for me once in awhile, and they are pretty good for someone who has only been talking for three years, but he is not always so patient.  So, when we were recently leaving a bat mitzvah a few weekends ago, and a friend of ours, who happened to be photographing the event, told me to stand in the street so that he could snap some photos al la the satorialist style, who was I to say no?  It was raining, we were in front of the el train tracks and a fire truck just happened to zoom by all in the five minutes that I risked my life standing in the middle of the street all in the name of some fashion photos (that I will never get again).  Here are the photos...and let me mention that the outfit was rather impromptu and a bit out of my zone, but it worked.  Let me break down the outfit, what I wore style....

Pants:  J Crew pixies $16.99 mentioned here (price per wear = around 56 cents)
Top:  H&M (purchased in May, not worn until end of August, didn't like this shirt for two months; reason unknown)
Shoes: VIC (from Lori's Shoes)
Bag:  Anthropologie (gift from a dear friend)
Bracelets:  some mentioned here & new leather wrap around (will get info on it and post soon)
Earrings:  Dana Reed ..my all time favorites







per per wear = in the negatives
