Fill in the ______.

*Drawing by Hannah Müller

A survey from the always fabulous Yellow Elephant.

The rules:

1. respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.

2. tag eight other people.

What is your current obsession?
my new scarf from Anthropologie, The Clash's London Calling album, Freshface bronzer

What are you wearing today?
cuffed jean shorts from GAP, a cute GAP top, bronze gladiators, and my fringe bag

What’s for dinner today?
I have no clue, I guess whatever my family decides they want me to cook.

Why is today special?

What would you like to learn to do?

What’s the last thing you bought?
a new pair of black gladiator stilettos from Target and some knee high socks

What are you listening to right now?
The Ramones

What is your favorite weather?
I would say fall, but since we never get to see leaves change down here in South Georgia, I'm thinking that doesn't count... So, summer, pretty much the only season we experience here, with its insane humidity and one hundred degree weather. Love it!

What is your most challenging goal right now?
Saving my money, so that I'll actually be able to buy stuff when I go to Africa in a few weeks.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
She always writes the most lovely posts, and is a truly lovely girl!

London or Krakow

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
the keys to a new car, preferably a Mini

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

a sense of humour, and a big heart

What’s your favorite type of music?
hmmm, I love all kinds of music, and my collection is very random, but most of my stuff is singer/songwriter

What’s the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
a cream tank top from White House/Black Market

What is your dream job?
if I could do anything? to be a photographer, realistically, I want to work for the State Department

Any favorite models?
Gemma Ward, Lily Cole, and Crystal Renn

Favorite designers?
Chloe, Elie Saab, Christian Lacroix, Alexander McQueen

Style Icons?
Audrey Hepburn, Carrie Bradshaw, and (don't laugh) Frankie Sandford, but I'm also very inspired by fashion magazines and blogs

Describe your personal style
vintage, classic, rocker

If your personality was a Magazine, which one would it be?
probably Lula: fashionable, quirky, and romantic

What do you like to do during the weekends?
read, take pictures, go on long drives, hang out with friends

What's one beauty product you absolutely cannot live without?
Burt's Bees, for sure, it's my lifeline

One fashion trend that you think should be wiped off the face of the earth?

And I'm going to copy my friend and say that the first people who want to do this survey are tagged.

Georgia, On My Mind

I was browsing some of the blogs I read regularly and saw that Nicole over at A Little Sussy had just posted about Maya Brenner's brilliant state necklaces. I think I need the Georgia one. Aren't they clever!!!

I was trying to wait on this post, because it is my 100th post, and that does seem like kind of a big deal. But, since I've been so busy with school and papers and whatnot, I haven't really had the time to do anything special. So, I figured I would go ahead and show y'all some of the pictures from a recent photoshoot I had with my friend Tori. She graduates next week and wanted me to take some pictures that she could give to her parents. How sweet!

So, enjoy these, and I promise to be back with some of the lovely projects I have been working on. Hopefully life won't be quite so busy after I finish with finals next week.

P.S.- Tori and I have our first wedding shoot tomorrow. I'm kinda nervous. Here's hoping all goes well!
