Happy Field Or Rosy Cavern

When I studied abroad in Japan my American friends nicknamed me "paparazzi hentai." The name quickly passed on to our Japanese friends as well as people began to notice a camera was permanently glued to my hand. It was a dream just to be in Japan and I wanted to capture every minute of it that I could. I was predominantly using a simple Canon Powershot, but occasionally brought out my father's old Pentax. No one was really safe from my lens; I loved snapping candid portraits of friends and strangers. While there I found a camera charm necklace at one store; it seemed like the perfect souvenir for my trip. Of course I was on a rather tight student budget then and the price seemed a bit out of my range, so I visited the store several times, pawing at it before I finally bought it. I wore it quite a bit for several years before it broke one day, so now the pieces sit in the bottom of an old jewelry box--unwearable but I'm not ready to dispose it of yet. So, I was rather pleased when I spied this very similar necklace. It brought back a lot of pleasant memories and stirred up my wanderlust.

It's always a drag when a beloved piece of jewelry breaks. But I'm so glad you found a replacement! It's lovely. And I see you've been wearing heels more often... props to you! I wish I had such confidence, but alas, I'm 5'9'' and would tower over everyone in sight.

I love this look! Lately I have been pairing my faux leather jacket with just about everything I own, including dresses and my leopard print flats :)

Yet another adorable outfit, I really like your vintage dress (I often shy away from white as I worry I'll ruin it too quickly)

I'm looking forward to the launch of your online art magazine! I love the minimalist chic of your outfit. The black and white palette with the animal print kitten heel is so cool. That jacket is awesome too.

Nice story! I kind of the opposite.I'm the girl who doesn't like to take too many pics to enjoy the momment. But, many times I blame myself because I don't have a physical memmory of many special momments :( Anyway, I love the outfit, the whit & black combo is always a good idea...I love the contrast.
