Outfit for Pop
This was my outfit for Pop on his favorite holiday. He ALWAYS dressed for holidays. Any excuse to dress up really. There are various reasons he would of loved it. He loved my hair "off my face", he loved tailored clothing (he was that gentleman in the suit) he liked gingham and me in pink, he loved details such as the chain and he LOVED a good oxford (he had more shoes than me) especially from Bass. (Random Fact Dave and I worked for Bass 11 years ago he had bleach blonde hair that year)
Pink gingham shirt Target?
Brown vest and pants H&M
Pink cami Forever 21
Pink chain. It's a 1950's sweater clip. I made it look like I was wearing a pink pocket watch.
I have a question for the photographers. So I tried auto white balance, I tried daylight, tungsten and florescent and even manually fussing with it, this is with my point and shoot and none were "right". Because I am standing in front of a window and for once it was full sun and the florescent lights in the area I couldn't get the colors or balance right. Is it worth getting a grey card for a point and shoot? I've never tried that but would it help for the future? Do point and shoots respond to one? Or should I just not be lazy and bring my DSLR and do it right? (When I did photography in school we didn't have digital cameras. That is my excuse so don't even mention that degree I may or may not have. I am looking at you family :P)
Since the window as so fussy I tried this to see the outfit better I wasn't going to use it but two people commented on it on Flickr while I was uploading it so I thought it was worth adding because they both seemed to like it a lot.You can see my pink ring at least :)
What are you plans for the weekend?
I've been told I will be resting. I fell asleep on the couch the other day and on the T on the way to work the other day. I am NOT the kind of person to fall asleep on the couch. I wish I was. I can't relax and have insomnia so me falling asleep on couch to Dave blew his mind and he is convinced Waffle gave me mono. (I don't think he is serious) I keep thinking of the Golden Girls episode with Dorothy and the chronic fatigue.
I want to have a Boston movie marathon this weekend. I asked on Twitter and Facebook and I got lots of good suggestions. This one will be movies they actually WERE filmed in Boston (not fake Boston which there is a ton of because we had weird laws about filming until very recently) and they are action and drama. Preferably containing a police chase and shoot outs. But I got lots of great ideas for later watching.
Our list for this marathon:
Gone Baby Gone
Boondock Saints (only one I haven't seen yet)
Feel free to leave any suggestions for movies filmed in Boston you enjoyed (not filmed elsewhere and pretended) . I have a good list but I am always wanting to add to my netflix! I googled lists but I prefer personal recommendations.
