i see a lot of this, and am often too intimidated to ask for a pic. mooner was very nice, if quiet, and the market was a little crazy… this is the best photo i got, which doesn’t quite do him justice. it was sweltering that day, and that coat looked to be some sort of antique wool…

i thought to myself… only here. this young man was filming some sort of music video. he was also very chatty, and quite comfortable with me TAKING A PICTURE OF HIM IN HIS SKIVS. that sweater, those socks, that tan line, and those shades… i love my city.

i’ve seen a lot of women wearing these easy summer dresses. i like andria’s look for several reasons… the sandal, the bag, pop of color and use of accessories…

loved the mix of grey and purple (that bag!). wish i would have gotten dad too… such a beautiful family, here’s mom and son… someone said julian was shy of cameras, but as soon as i went to snap a pic, he jumped in with mom… what a cutie !

the color, her shoe.. that pretty ring. not to be redundant, but if you’re a girl, it’s almost too easy to look good. michele does a great job of making it look simple. she was visiting our city for the crave event, check out her blog- chocolate pizza stiletto love here.

needle buzz – value village + contest + fall shopping

this blog is about pictures of you. that being said, you may remember the contest was going to involve a friend. there were some timing issues, and so, in the vein of keeping the contest timely, i’ve been dashing about trying to get it together myself. i shop at value village pretty frequently (with said friend, in fact)… and have picked up bits here and there for fall. since today was as un-fall like as it gets (88 when this was taken) i’d had a lovely argyle, full length skirt planned, that no amount of free stuff could entice me to put on. so i bolted in and found this denim number. then the focus wasn’t working (cause the subject wasn’t in front of the camera) and i had to bug some passer-by (big thanks to tyler) to take this picture. sorry it’s me, i won’t make a habit of it…


but…now the contest can begin ! just a reminder- these are how to qualify for one of the TWO $50 value village gift certs (one will be chose by a drawing, one will be chosen based on creativity)-

1. post a comment
2. suggest a title for the above picture
3. best critique of how this outfit completely relates to a. fall b. shape c. seattle d. color or e. reverse osmosis
4. best plea for why you deserve the gift cert.
5. guess at which V.V. this was taken
6. proof of shameless promotion of needle+thread (pictures, glitter posters, links, free converse ad space)

and just to show you how valuable those gift cards are… my outfit, the entire thing (boots-$10, skirt $5, button down $4, jacket/hoodie $5, tank $4, belt $5) was $38.
