paper doll parts

The title of my post is because every time I look at these photos overblown with flash - I think I'm a paper doll cutout. Is that weird? Or kinda awesome? Of course this was totally unintentional. My Mom was taking photos for me over the holidays and somehow the flash switched to the wrong setting - she told me, "I don't think the photos are working" so I'm thinking oh well, another outfit that doesn't really work… I wish I was one of those girls that could just throw it all together and make it look flawless but I'm not and I try everyday. Then I saw the photos and realized it was just from the flash exposure. Yet I kind of loved the feel of the photos; something different, something cool. So I thought I'd share these with you and my double whammy of an outfit this year! I wore it to a family wedding {where I was photographing it all} AND for New Years Eve 2013. It really turned out great and all the items I already owned. Sometimes that can be the most exciting fashion find… rediscovering the things you already have in your closet. Does anyone else have a black hole of a closet? Maybe it's just time for that closet clean out!
