I'll Light My Candle And Burn A Lot

the clothes horse, cynthia rowley, fashion, style, retro, floral dress, jeffrey campbell booties, grey wedge booties, sunsetPictures attempted just after sunset when the sun has dipped below the horizon line, but the sky is still pink is my favorite time to take photographs...and the most difficult! I find myself lying in wait for that perfect moment and then racing back and forth between my tripod and the chosen spot while the light changes and fades. Add wind gusts to the mix and well, things get even more unruly. Still, I muddle through. At the moment I'm enjoying slightly grainy and soft focus images.

This dress has become my favorite "throw it on and go" piece, but I've mostly been wearing it on the weekends so it hasn't gotten properly photographed. The dress has a very cool assymetrical waistline that dips and curves. I also really enjoy the floral print that is blown-out and blurred, so that you sort of think your vision is going when you look at it...like I said, I'm enjoying soft focus at the moment!the clothes horse, cynthia rowley, fashion, style, retro, floral dress, jeffrey campbell booties, grey wedge booties, sunsetthe clothes horse, cynthia rowley, fashion, style, retro, floral dress, jeffrey campbell booties, grey wedge booties, sunsetthe clothes horse, cynthia rowley, fashion, style, retro, floral dress, jeffrey campbell booties, grey wedge booties, sunsetthe clothes horse, cynthia rowley, fashion, style, retro, floral dress, jeffrey campbell booties, grey wedge booties, sunset

  2. The dress is really a great one to slip on and get out the door, but because it has all these great features, the nipped in waist, the full skirt, the floral detail and the second layer... it's got this really, really great femininity that accentuates your body nicely.

    It's also good for any time of year, I think.

    I wonder how you'd wear it with bright accessories like a belt and hat?

    :)

  3. The first and last photos are my favorite! I do like soft lighting too, but with my camera, I just can't take great pictures when it gets a little dark out.

    I like the colors of your dress a lot, but I can't see the asymmetry from the photos. Your hair is lovely, by the way!

  10. These are gorgeous, I love that location.

    I'm totally with you on the racing-around-after-sunset thing! I've been doing that a lot lately. The light is so perfect then, but there's this small window of time and you have to hurry. It's so fun though.
