Never Say Let Well Enough Alone

After taking these pictures I was quite dissatisfied with the final product; both the outfit and the photographs themselves. I almost never capture in a photograph exactly what I would like; I'm always reaching for some strange, intangible and seemingly unattainable goal, but I do usually come to some acceptance of my final product. This post however was on the virtual chopping block. The tights especially seemed so jarringly bright, there was something juvenile about them and I wondered why I had chosen to wear them instead of some more understated color (sometimes it is after I take pictures that I realize an outfit doesn't work the way I had envisioned it). Then I remembered the yellow tights in Balenciaga's Pre-Fall 2010 collection and those just at Fendi's F/W 2011 runway. So, while my personal styling is hardly as crisp and fresh as either of those collections, I decided to let the pictures remain. Even the outfits I don't enjoy in retrospect were worn and since I blog, recorded.
