I love the fabric of this dress. I really don't like wearing long sleeved dresses, I don't know why, the sleeves feel too puffy, and I feel like everything matches too much. And the weather has to be cold, but not too cold. But if I'm in the right mood I can pull it off, and I've been wearing this dress a lot lately. It came with these amazing double purple velvet skinny belts, but I totally forgot until after I took these pictures. I might do another shoot in the future with the purple belts :)
Sorry about my pale, pale legs. I don't have a tan at the best of times, but it's the middle of winter here! This was one of a few random warm days we had where I go to wear bare legs.
I just had to make another animation for you today. I like how my hand is kind of breakdancing. Despite all my years of training hip-hop and break and all of those 'street' styles are so unnatural to me, I actually find them impossible. After being forced to point my toes EVERY time my feet leave the floor, and to make my arms and legs flow gracefully, I simply cannot perform the isolation required for those styles. I can really appreciate the skill involved. I once did a hip hop dance class, as the other class I was going to attend had sold out. I distinctly remember a baseball-capped, baggy jean-ed instructor screaming at me "There will be NO pointed toes in MY class!"
