While driving around and searching for new locations for photo shoot backdrops, David and I stumbled across this pretty building. I love the columns, architecture, and landscaping. It looks like it belongs with my historic tour photo sets, right? Well, shhhh, don't tell anyone - it's actually a funeral home!

In other news, I finally fixed up my outfits page (button at the top right). Check it out! I spent hours html-coding a gallery to view all my outfits easily. Any thumbnail will take you to the outfit post. What do you think?

There are so many gorgeous historical buildings in Georgia. We have hardly anything like that in the city, just skyscrapers. I like the consignment store idea you addressed today. I only went on a consignment shopping trip once, while I thought the prices were high, I should have tried to bring things in and set up an account. BTW...what is the lens you are using for the first photo? It looks great.

Ok that's it - you have the best backgrounds for your photos! I am in love with that blouse - it looks vintage, but it's perfect on you.

Can I ask - are those shoes all-day shoes? I was thisclose to splurging on a pair last month but I really want to be able to wear them all day!

Grace said...

You look stunning in this outfit. And I love the gold trim. I bet you worked on that for hours! It's awesome. I love it!

Funeral home! Love it! What a great idea :) I've got a similar looking bank I'm scoping out just waiting for the weekend!

I love the top paired with the simple bottom. Very elegant!

Kate said...

That shirt is gorgeous! Love your outfit - and of course who doesn't adore Louboutin heels??

A very lovely setting... I guess funeral homes are designed that way!

I love your blouse, Kisses

Funeral home? No way! I love it AND your outfit--that blouse is so pretty on you! I really like how you styled it, too--floral print/lace can sometimes look a little 'darling', I think, but the little black skirt/shoes and neutral bag that you paired it up with instead makes it look super chic. Love.

This is a beautiful outfit, and as I type this, I love the background in Great Oaks.
