Shiny New Toy: Canon Rebel T1i


After about 3 months of shopping around, we decided on getting the Canon Rebel T1i on Amazon. I’ve used a DSLR before to shoot fashion shows for my column at school, but this is the first one I’ve ever actually owned! It’s definitely an upgrade from the 8 megapixel Canon Powershot I bought in 2008, before 8 megapixels became the norm on camera phones. Hopefully as my photography improves, I’ll be able to upgrade from the stock lens to a fancy one.¬†

Isn’t she beautiful?

First shot with our new DSLR! Obviously we have a whole lot to learn, but here’s what I wore.


Spring Shopping Haul

Greens and Blues from J. Crew

The Cafe Capri Pants in 100% Wool!

Bright shorts for warmer weatherA punky silk blouse for work and playEyelet blouse from TJ Maxx (it’s wrinkly from being in my suitcase for a few days)Wool Sanctuary shorts…wonder what I’ll pair with theseMulticolored Maxi for Spring-FallNordstrom, Festive skirt for dinners and such

I’ve wanted to inject certain colors into my wardrobe for a while now. I’m still in search of the perfect mango-y yellow shade, along with some heather grey. The last few things I still need to purchase are jeans (I just lost a pair of Vince pants this week due to a nasty rip) and a dress for graduation!


New Spring Boots!

I’m actually on Spring Break this week, but managed to snap a few photos of these Vince Camuto Lannlo Booties before leaving my apartment for some much needed R & R. I’m wearing them here with my wax-coated J Brand jeans, but really plan on wearing the lace-up shoes with girly dresses. I noticed that I’ve really been into slightly thicker heels recently. However, I think my next pair of shoes will be less trendy and more classic!
