Please Just One Where I Am Squeezing Your Head?

The other day my friend Berry posted on Facebook that she had some clothes to get rid of. Then she posted pictures of the items she was clearing out and you got to claim them! She took the pictures down as items were claimed, mailed them and we paid just shipping costs. I thought this was a clever way to get rid of stuff she was over, and give new clothes to others. I ended up with a couple of tops, and this is one of them…

It has been raining non-stop for a week or more now, and I have put away my Etsy bag of wonderment to keep it safe, and pulled out this nice thrifted leather bag. It’s the coated kind of leather that repels water instead of absorbing it. Plus I’ve been reading non-stop and had to cart a book, an umbrella and more, and while my new bag is sturdy, I don’t want to push it. This bag was all of 5 bucks or so, so I don’t mind pushing it. Also, this bag proves a really nice, leather bag can be had for cheap if you are willing to invest time instead of money!

I don’t like when Nathan comes out and watches me take my pictures. It makes me nervous and he is silly and distracting. But I get it. A hot girl taking fashion photos in your backyard? I’d look too. As a result I end up with photos like this:

That’s my “I know, you are funny, but I’m trying to do something here” smirk.

And this:

Which is more of an “Oh my gosh, seriously leave me alone so I can not look stupid in all of these!” smile/giggle combo.

And finally this, which was so important to Nathan that he would not leave me alone until I promised that at the end of the shoot I would “Let me take just ONE where I am squeezing your head? PLEASE?” So. Ladies and gents, here is Nathan, squeezing my head.

Don’t worry, it’s just an optical illusion. I’m fine.

I have decided you should smile in all yours shots...the end.

Totally love that shirt on you, and I have to say I can fully appreciate the squishing your head photo, as a huge Kids in the Hall fan!

Hi Erin,
I love the facebook clothing mailout idea! And yes. a little head squishing is always a good time. Your blog is grrreat:)

Tina said...

You made me laugh, Girl. Too funny. I'm feeling an homage coming.

Sheila said...

I bet Nathan is a fan of the Kids in the Hall comedy troupe! Ah, it's the Head Crusher: "I'm crushing your head! I'm crushing your head!"

Um...excuse me, I'm rather dorky.

I actually really like seeing you smiling and acting a little silly. Great top!

Bianca said...

Please tell me he was making the noise!!

Haha. Cute outfit.

FashionAddict said...

HA! That last pic is too funny. I really love the print in that top, and those ankle boots are super cute.

Boutique Girl said...

The free top looks great! I love that bag!

ShopKim said...

That last picture is great! I love your laughing/smiling ones too. He should join you more often!

Berry said...

Uh cute as hell. Of course. I was surprised you didn't have that top already though because we both seem to shop pretty exclusively at Target and pick the exact same stuff haha.
I love that purse too!
