Two Strip Technicolor













Sometimes I try different things when editing photos, but mostly it's just a lot of brightening and adding a little warmth to make things pop. Tonight I tried clicking the auto color correct to see what it would do to my photos since they had come out really red hued (due to the setting sun) and the effect looked a bit off and almost like two strip technicolor to me, so I went with it! Something a little different for a change.

Red and green together? What is it Christmas? In July? Ehh, why not. I love this green and white rayon I picked up from Mood last year. Simple botanical prints like this are my favorite. I still need to redo the hem on this dress though, as I did it by machine last year after being fed up working with this fussy rayon and wanting the project done. It deserves a nice hand sewn hem! The red accessories make the dress look even more tropical and summery I think. The red clutch has yet to appear here on the blog before, but the Bait heels are old favorites these days. I'd like these heels in every color. I already have them in two!

Wanna know a possibly TMI detail you may have missed? I had my arms waxed and this is the first close up clutch bag photo ever here on the blog that doesn't give me some anxiety about how hairy my arms look...which I realize is super silly. Was that painful? Yes a bit, but my skin also reacted pretty badly to the process and broke out in little red bumps for several days post wax. Which is worse, hair or red bumps? Yeah, that's easy to answer. Not sure I'll be doing that again! Plus it's expensive! Better off just getting over myself and my silly insecurities I guess. Lesson learned.

I'm still playing catch up with a ton of things, and have so (soooooo) much work to do this weekend! I promise I'll have a new video up soon, I just have to find the time to edit it! Never enough time for it all, I'm a broken record and have been for years now. Thank's for sticking around even though the song remains ever the same ;)

  1. Heh, that title made me laugh because it is such a perfect description of the colours in your outfit.

    Over here in Europe we seem much less bothered by fuzzy arms - I've never done anything with mine. I think we always trail America on the hair-removal front, whichever part of the body it is. As long as my legs and face are fine (honestly, no-one warns you about THAT happening in your 40s!) I'm happy.

    1. Thank you Mim! The US is all about hair-on-the-head-and-brows-only sort of deal, but I can't keep up with that nonsense!

  5. I love the outfit and colours and Christmas never honestly entered my mind. Did notice any difference with your arms but did think your hair looked darker. Have you coloured it? We'll stick with you no matter the frequency of the record! Lol

    1. Thank you Carol Ann! I touched up my hair recently with the brown color conditioner I've been using, so that's why it seems a bit darker here :)

  6. Ooohhh i love the editing in these photos - absolutely perfect choice! I don't think it looks Christmassy at all btw. And I totally get the problem with the arm hair hahah.. maybe you can put aloe vera gel next time?

    1. Thank you Nora! I need to get a legit aloe vera plant, but seeing as I always kill plants I'm afraid it won't last long! I think I might try sugaring instead of waxing next time as it sounds like its less harsh perhaps.

  7. These colours are so tropical, I am not getting a festive vibe! I have a silk palm print tunic top in that shade of green with pops of red, love it for warmer weather. Ouch about the arms, hope they're not too sore xx
