the mullet dress, once more

Daylight savings can be a pain for someone who takes her pictures early in the morn — you know, before the sun even peeks its golden head over the horizon. Ah well. I'm making it my mission to hunt down a tripod this weekend so I can at least snap photos on the parking garage roof, where it may be one iota brighter. My cramped, shadowy balcony just isn't going to cut it.

But at long last, here I am again! And with much less hair.

Is it incredibly obvious that my Andre-the-Giant-sized Boyfriend (at least, that's how big he is compared to me) took these photos? Bless his heart, but the guy can't snap a picture of me without me looking either incredibly fat (shooting angled up) or incredibly bobble-headed (shooting angled down). I tell him to just back up and keep the camera level, but he can't quite get the hang of it yet…

Finally, check out my little witch booties! I'm fairly certain they're from the '80s. That decade wasn't all FRANKIE SAYS RELAX and cone boobs.

Tomorrow, I've got a nifty little giveaway to tell you all about! Woohoo! Just think of it as a thank you for sticking with me, even when I disappear for weeks at a time.

    1. Aww, thanks girl! I admit that I miss my long hair sometimes too -- especially on days when my short hair decides it'd like to be an afro rather than a bob. *shakes fist*

  5. You hair looks AWESOME! Wow. I'm so jealous. It looks so full and healthy. Not that it didn't before, but now it just looks so "fresh" and ready for Spring!

    1. Haha, thanks! Sometimes it's TOO full -- you know, like "this looks more like shrubbery than hair" full. ;)

  6. Ha ha, daylights saving are pain in a butt..period. Wish we would follow Europe's example and stope doing the crazy clock switcheroo. Super cute dress, Amy- I like it with navy jacket and gold buttons on the blazer are a nice touch.

    1. I agree. I really don't get the clock switcheroo -- what exactly is it supposed to do?

  7. Your hair looks awesome! And girl, I can SO relate to the abnormally tall man trying to take pics ordeal. My husband is 6'7", so it looks like my camera was sitting on a freaking skyscraper when he takes photos of me. I tell him to kneel or crouch, but he whines that it's too uncomfortable. Wah! haha!
