All Aloud The Wind Doth Blow


As you can tell, the wind was blowing me around like mad and while it breathed some life in to vintage collar it also made my hair crazy. Part way through the shoot I pulled my hair up and into a bun because I really can not stand my hair flying every which way, especially when I might have to hold down my skirt so I don't flash the camera! Ironically, I just ordered some bike shorts to wear under my dresses to make this problem moot, but they didn't arrive quite in time...

This vintage collar is several things I typically am not: pink and hugely ruffled. As some of you might recall, pink is my least favorite color...I have been known to say I even feel animosity towards it (all because I tend to personify colors too much). However, when I tried it in the shop I suddenly liked it quite a bit. I started to think about how fun it would be to add to a variety of different dresses and blouses; I love pieces with versatility. It was also so reasonably priced and unlike any collars I've seen before. For this outing I decided to wear it a little off center, with the ruffles focused on my shoulder.

  6. Oh, that dress is too cute on you! And I like that pink collar. I think the wind adds extra magic to the pictures. :D

    && I'm not a super fan of pink, either. There's something about it. And yet the other day I bought a pink miniskirt. Go figure.

  10. I am super impressed that you can do a bun in your hair without a mirror. Skills - mad ones.

  27. I Love these pics Rebecca!!

    Ha ha Pink is my so-called favorite color, but when it comes to clothing, I stay away from it. Weird huh. Well, that collar of yours is stunning, just like you.

    Happy Friday!

    xx Love & Aloha

  29. i understand exactly how you feel about pink. for many years, i felt that the colour looked horrible on me and that it - in addition - represents everything i don't want to be. however, last year i found a few things i really liked in a dusty pinkish colour, and now i kind of got used to sometimes wearing pink, if if it is part of some interesting or pretty print or a nice shade that doesn't make me look like a pig...

    i really do like that collar, it gives the dress an interesting touch!

  30. The wind has a very Marylin affect! The collar is gorgeous, light and filmy and perfect.
    On another note I love he art you've been posting lately it reminds me of stuff I myself have been doing in printmaking and in my collages.

  39. Wind can be fun to look at in pictures but it's awful when it's whipping your hair into your mouth.

    Your collar is so lovely and unusual.
    Great find!

  43. I distinctively remember making an effort to avoid anything particularly "girly" (skirts, pink, etc.), but now it's been a complete 180 for me! Except for pink, it still varies for me.

    But I love that collar, it adds an ethereal effect!

  47. Laughing at the idea of the subject flashing at the camera, instead of the usual situation of the camera flashing the subject...!
    Your collar looks lovely with the plain black dress, this is my favourite styling of it out of your selection. And those booties are so cute.

  54. I like the collar!
    And I think the wind made for some good pictures, while I'm sure they were difficult to capture! They're lively. And I don't know about where you live, but here I'd love a nice strong breeze like that to cool off some.
