my little magpie: an outfit post

put something gold in front of flojo and she's in a trance indefinitely, which is why i think she's more magpie than sun conure sometimes. she loves this skirt as much as i do because we can both appreciate a little sparkle! the first time i wore this, i decided that i'd do a one skirt/three ways type deal, so here is outfit #2...

shirt: banana republic, skirt: tucker via ebay, necklace: here, shoes: target

i just realized that i'm hiding my hands in every one of these pictures, and now that i realize it, it seems sort of weird. do you ever get confused and not know what to do with any part of your body when it comes to taking pictures? i do all. the. time. and here is exhibit a, b, c, and d.

i wanted to thank you guys for your sweet comments on my last post about having earrings featured in lonny magazine, and i also wanted to thank you for supporting my shop like you have! seriously, without a lot of you cheering me on and inspiring me, i may have just caved and given up thanks to rude customers! okay, that started off positive then took a negative turn, but what i'm trying to say is, THANK YOU!!!


  1. I recently discovered that I put my left hand on my hip and tilt my head everytime I'm in front of a camera. Whut! Too much ANTM methinks.

    This skirt = amaze

    So much love for that necklace
    flojo is my hero

    etc x

  2. OMG! Love the skirt and nude colored shoes and your birdie is THEE best accessory to your outfit! :D I want a bird! :)


  3. I adore this outfit and your birdie!!! Xo Lori

  4. That gold metallic skirt is just gorgeous!

    I always feel like I need a lesson in posing when I'm taking my blog photos! I think I need to watch more America's Next Top Model to learn some new poses :)

  5. Negative customers are blah!! BUT in other words I love this outfit! :)

  6. Loving that gold skirt and Flojo's upside down pic! I always do weird things in my outfit pics too - but I don't think the hidden hands look weird - I might have to try it actually :)

    I know exactly what you mean about awkward posing. I will often have 5 or 6 photos where I have the deer in headlights look and my hands are halfway behind my head/back/butt/etc. Damn hands, always getting in the way.

  15. Oh I want that skirt! And I love how simple and stunning your necklace is!

    See Me Rwar
