Bows and Ruffles

I loved the girly-ness of this outfit. The minute I snapped the bow belt on I realized I was somehow channeling a Keiko Lynn inspired look! Only she is ten thousand times more chic than I am but it does feel good to be girly! I took a little time at lunch to run down to Biltmore Village a few minutes from work to drag out the ol' tripod and snap a few. I had about three different strangers ask what the hell I was doing. For the first inquiry I was honest and told them I was taking photos of my outfit for my blog. It was two men and they looked like I had told them the sky was green. Utter confusion. Forget that. The next comment came from a lady who ended up standing just out of the shoot and asked "Are you taking photos of yourself?" I answered yes. I got that same bewildered look from her as well and a muttered "Oh". The last guy asked me if I was doing a photo shoot for the "Doors of Asheville". No clue what that is dude. All in all it was one of my favorite shoots. I totally lost my inhibition and just went with it. It was very liberating! Then my heel caught the edge of the sidewalk and I landed flat on my ass. Nice move Jess.
