Repose

Dress: Karen Millen {similar here}
Shoes: Paris Hilton "Senorita" {here}
Bracelets: Lia Sophia {similar here} {and here} and Vintage (belonged to my grandmother) {similar here}
Sunglasses: Tom Ford "Anouk" {similar here}

I hope you're having a wonderful week! David and I recently attended a fundraiser, which was very close to a historic cemetery. I thought it was cool - the trees, the old grave markers, the calmness, the sunlight filtering through, the ambiance, etc. David thought it was creepy - but he is a bit more "intuitive" that I am. What do you think readers? Is it cool or creepy to photograph in a cemetery (considering it's not Halloween)?

Sidenote: My Saks espadrilles were featured on today's DailyBuzz Style! See me here!

You look great! I don't think it's creepy! Actually my friend and I once did a little photoshoot in an old cemetery in the middle of the summer!

That dress is gorgeous on you, Mary Ann! Your cemetery photos came out great but I think I'd be too freaked out to do a photo shoot there.

My husband used to be in a band and they did their band photos in a graveyard looking all Bad-A and cool haha! I think it just depends on the look you're going for :)

I think cemeteries are fascinating, so I vote cool! I love to look at the headstones and imagine all the history and the different lives the represent. This dress is gorgeous, and those shoes are to die for. :)

Dress is beautiful :) But I wouldn't do a photo shoot at a cemetery even though yours turned out beautifully :)

One of the things that really freaked me out when I moved to Japan was how much a part of daily life the cemetery is. Many times they are built right next to schools to emphasise to new generations the passing of previous generations. It was quite unnerving to be giving lessons and glance out the window onto a cemetery...

You'd be considered perfectly normal in Japan doing this... Not so much in the West.

Another pretty dress, Mary! You look beautiful! Well, as long as it provides a good backdrop for my pics, I would not really care if its a cemetery or anywhere else!

Kristina said...

Well from the photos it appears to pose no threat. It actually looks quiet tranquil and charming. But thats just looking at it from a photo it may be a totally different scenario in person. In any event you look darling!!!

I totally want to take pictures in a cemetery. Growing up, my grandfather would pick us up from school a lot and he was into cemeteries, so we went to a bunch of them. I just am fascinated with them.

And this dress is stunning! I love the neckline so much I want to cry! Gorgeous!
