Dearly Departed


I had an absolute blast playing around in Greyfriar's Cemetery today, where I experimented with some new poses, burst mode, and varying levels of light. Isn't this place positively haunted? Well, it's supposed to be one of the most haunted sites in the world. Apparently each year a skeleton surfaces after a particularly heavy rainfall, since back in the day they packed a few too many dearly departed beneath this grassy mound (which was once a valley). A section of it's even closed off because too many tourists were getting 'strange injuries' while inside it. Even if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing, it certainly adds some flavor to the city.

Anyways, the outfit: I love pairing a really complicated piece with something simple and neutral. This vintage beaded white 'vest' (? I'm not sure what else to call it ?) craves to be the focal point of the ensemble, so I stuck it with a black tank and mini. Let the vintage have the limelight.

That vest is gorge- you look incredible! Umm, can we please go to the haunted graveyard when I come for a visit and can Brett teach me how to make gifs (because I suffer from computer illiteracy)? I have already started planning my outfits for Scotland- is that sad- or does it make me super organized? I'm lighting up (seriously I think I could power a hybrid car at the moment) just thinking about where I will be in a week and a half right now!
