metallic paws: wrapped up in roses

wrapped up in roses

I bought this 3D rose jumper off Ebay recently and in my post (link here) I was describing how I was feeling like a bit of a hairy pet with all the stray pink threads this jumper was leaving behind everywhere- on my other clothes, the floor, my bed, etc. However after having tried it on, and giving it a few more shakes and brush-downs, I seemed to have removed most of the loose ends and the jumper was ready for wear. It was just a bit disconcerting having to sweep up so many threads in the beginning- it was like the jumper was falling apart!

Anyway since I had my heart set on wearing this rose jumper I had to keep the rest of the outfit simple as the jumper is eye-popping enough as it is with all the rose outline detail. So I went with a plain singlet and shorts, for which I kept both white because I wanted to create a fresh, floral look. Well actually I was really just imagining the dream rose bed for the home I'd be moving in with my perfect husband and perfect family. If Jensen Ackles is unavailable, then I at least would put white and pink flowers together in the garden or in a bouquet Mr Ackles could send my way as an apologetic "wish it weren't so" gesture.  (joking...)


Rose jumper: Ebay (this is the American Apparel 3D rose jumper knockoff, for about $70 cheaper)
Key necklace: House of Harlow
Shorts: Supre
Heels: Bon Bon
Rings: Equip, Diva





Apologies for the lack of eye contact and variety in these pictures. I was having one of those bad "face" days as opposed to bad hair days. Ignoring my rather dismal-looking appearance, it would be a shame and waste to not post any pictures up. More cheerful looking pics and posts to come later, I promise :)

  6. Hi Izzy, thanks for dropping by my blog and left a sweet comment! And not just that, you are following my blog too! Thanks so much and I'm following you back.
    Regarding the camera, my bf bought me a Canon 1000D last year for Christmas, which I used to take the pics. Although, the trick is the lens we used! We discovered this affordable and great lens by Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8. I took a pic of this lens in my Collection #13 too! =) Hope this info will help you to take much more beautiful pics. You are already gorgeous =)
