Happy Friday everyone!
Does anyone have any exciting weekend plans? I'm still in Illinois for internship training and will be here until Wednesday.
Amy and I got to take these pictures before I left Pennsylvania last week and we had such a blast trying out my new camera lens! I really am so blessed to have such a wonderful roommate and friend - without her, college would not be the same. Lurve you, girl!
So, when thredUP, a new online consignment store, contacted me and offered me a gift card to promote their store, I knew that I wanted to split it with Miss Amy for a.) just being awesome and b.) all she does to help me with TTL. Plus, picking out clothes online when it is midnight and you are sleep deprived from finals studying is quite a hilarious adventure in itself!
When we got together to take these pictures, it was quite interesting. To get to the industrial background for Amy's shots, we had to walk through - ummm- a more sketchy part of town. Now, we were fine because we were together, but we sure did look quite out of place in our fancier duds. We just had to watch out for the 'railroad goths.'
And then we went to a little forest/park place near by for my shots. Welllll - let's just say, while I enjoy being outside and doing outdoorsy things, I'm not a nature expert by any means. Which is why there are about 15 outtakes on my computer (side note: blooper post soon?) that show me freaking out and expressing my rage at me leaning against a tree with leaves on it in groups of three. Yep. I remembered the "leave of three, let them be," a little too late. I went home and jumped straight in the shower - if it was poison, it seems to have worked because I'm currently itch-free (*knock on wood*).
Anyway, we really liked thredUP's website - you can sort by size or style. Plus, their prices are comparable to most consignment stores, which is great for broke college gals like us! So, check it out and you too can have an awesome friend photoshoot! Just,hopefully without the sketchiness and nature problems...
Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: Trash to Treasure: at the end of every year, our school has a thing called 'Trash to Treasure,' where people can donate things, so they don't get thrown in the trash (that does happen). So, in the dead of night - hey, we were up late studying anyway - we go and donate some of our old things and see if there are any treasures that we can claim as our own - Amy hit the jackpot this year.
Owl Ring: Gift from Laura: Thrifted
Puppy Ring: Amy's boyfriend got this for her out of a vending machine. If they weren't so adorable, they would be revolting. (JK!) Couple photoshoot soon? I think yes...
Bird Earrings: Gift from a friend: Handmade
Skirt: c/o thredUP (Alfred Dunner)
Sandals: Thrifted (Wal*Mart)
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
