"If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera"

My new camera finally came! My old camera suffered a tragic fall about three weeks ago, and well, it took me a little while to get my stuff together enough to pick out and order a new camera. Finally I decided to get the Canon Powershot SD1100IS in gold. 


It is so much more beautiful in person! Seriously, it is very well designed. I love the gold with black accents which you can't fully appreciate online, and the silver is so shiny and lovely.

Thanks to this new camera I was able to take some outfit pictures, and I am so impressed by how the camera picks up color.

 
jacket: somewhere in Buenos Aires; tank & skirt: american eagle; shoes: gap

I went prom dress shopping today. First my mom dropped me off at Sak's while she had a doctors appointment. I walk into the evening wear department and a woman in a black suit kindly asks what I'm looking for. "Prom" I say.

She continues to smile "I'd love to help you but we don't really have anything under $900. I don't know your budget, but I didn't spend $900 on my prom." I agreed, because well, she was right. She then directed me towards sports wear. I tried to spend time shopping but it's a small Sak's and there wasn't really anything I wanted to try on. I then proceeded to try and kill 40 minutes while my mom was at her doctors appointment. Eventually I just stood outside Sak's, calling my friends, because everything there was too expensive to even pretend to be interested in.

Once my mom picked me up we went to lunch and then stopped into a few boutiques we though might have prom dresses. Nope. I tried on all of one dress in 3 hours. It was nice, but not my prom dress. Hopefully I'll have more luck Friday when I go into Philly.

I'll go to Saks when I'll have the money, lol. You should definitely try to create your own prom dress, or fix a cheap dress up.

that cameras too cute! and yea 900's way too much for a prom dress! I found really cute vintage ones from flea markets and ebay.

Lily said...

Oh I hate bitch sales assistants who inform you of the price like you can't afford it. (I can't, but that's completely beside the point!).

Love your blog. PS I also love Skins. You onto the 3rd series yet? I loathe Effie.

Eeli said...

Even though the picture doesn't give your cam justice your description sure did and i'm imagining all kinds of delish! haha

I like your little jacket. Good luck finding a prom dress.
I used to use a Canon Powershot--they are excellent cameras.

Prom dress shopping sounds too hard. I must admit, though, looking around in Saks is one of my guilty pleasures when I'm in a town that has one. I don't even care if it's completely out of my price range. I guess it's different if you're actually looking for something, though.

I love this outfit. I want more things in that shade of blue.
