lights camera flop.

there's nothing more disappointing than taking a gazillion photos, only to realize (when you get home) that they were all bad...for whatever reason. sometimes they are happy mistakes and make for good pictures, sometimes not.
you've all been there, right?

if you're lucky,
you may find one diamond cubic zirconia in the rough:

but otherwise, it's...
hair in the face:

hello, remote!:

monochromatic setting? who set that up?!:

  2. I know what you mean that's why I rarely post outfit pics it's so hard to get a good pic especially when the sun isn't out, my cam takes horrible quality pics :T A summer dress with a denim jacket is my fave look for the spring ;)

  15. I've totally been there and revisited over and over. Many would be surprised at the amount of pictures that don't end up in the recycling bin instead of my blog. Mine are usually straight up embarrassing, yours are hilarious and you look awesome :)

  17. If it makes you feel any better I realllly love this dress! I hate when pictures don't work out, it's so frustrating. Some days I'll go out and it'll take 10 minutes and I'll love every picture. Other days 30 minutes later and I hate them all. Ahh the life of a blogger....

  30. Hah! A fantastic post about the perils of self timer outfit shoots. The road is beset by many obstacles. *much eye rolling*

    But actually I'm loving that shot where your head got cut off. It's a great shot of the dress and the cross. I'd call that a 'happy mistake'.
