The title is a bit misleading. I wasn’t actually trying to create an outfit around this purse. I was trying to find a new way to wear this dress. I love the skirt half, but the top is so ugly that I’m always looking for a cover-up. This time, I topped it with the pale yellow cardigan. Then I started reached for my yellow pumps, but decided to be bold and wear my floral shoes instead. I liked the floral anklestrap pumps with my floral Forever 21 bag so much last time that I decided to repeat the pairing. Finally, I added some pink beads to tie the look together.
Some people have been curious as to how I take these spinning shots. Usually, I press the self-timer (10 second delay) or use the remote (2 second delay) and begin the spin a moment or two before the shutter closes, timing it so that my skirt is flared and my face is front at the “click.” As you can imagine this takes a few tries, but I’ve become quite good at the timing with practice. My new camera (digital SLR) can be set to take multiple shots as one holds the shutter button down, but this doesn’t work with the remote. Mike used this setting to take the Purple and Spice spins. We did this again today, but none of the shots turned out as well as my self-shot spin (at right). However, the below picture demonstrates that, even if the pictures don’t turn out well, the process is awfully fun:
