Retro for Work
My mom took this pics for me when I came home from work and she was leaving after babysitting my daughter. We thought the tree backdrop would make it very junior prom, yes? I have been into dressing up a little for work, even though every time I do someone remarks on it. It's funny: I dress partly for myself, partly for others, but when people notice the effort, I often feel self-conscious about it!
One of my neighbors works on a photography project for our neighborhood and asked if she could take one of me. I was Tuesday's photo of the day! I actually really like one of the outtakes she didn't use, one of my mom and I:
Dress: Dorothy Perkins, professionally altered, bought secondhand
Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack ($5)
