Just a very quick post to tell you about a couple of new photos I added to my Flickr stream.
About… oh, I’d say 14 months ago (yeah, long time), I spotted this dress on a sidewalk display outside Princess of India, a dress shop downtown on State Street that specializes in imported women’s dresses and accessories. Many of the dresses Princess of India sells are on the extravagant yet affordable side, and when I was browsing through their sidewalk racks, my eyes were captivated by a gold (or was it silver?) sequined dress on display. But I decided not to put too much of a dent into my credit card & bank account upon seeing the price tag (affordable, yes, but not affordable for me at that moment). Luckily, this dress was on the next rack over. I really dig the pink, naturally, but also how it compliments the black on the skirt portion; it has a ying-and-yang kind of feel.
Part of the reason I’m outside in this photo is that it was a beautiful early evening in late June, so I really wanted to get out of the house a little bit. I was also about to head over to… let’s just say it was a supportive photo opportunity at a park here in Madison. I do not have photographic proof of that, sorry, though I’ll try to get a hold of the photographer to see if she still has the photos I posed for; I really want to share them with you somehow.
Another reason I’m outside is that I wanted to show off this brand new hair.
I spotted this wig at a local costume shop (a subject for a future “Allison in Madison” post perhaps?), and I was drawn to how the wavy curls go past the chin and touches the shoulders. And though I think sandy colored hair looks better on me, I think red color has a cool appeal as well. I seriously consider this my new favorite hair style.
