We Didn't Start the Fire






Outfit Details:
Denim Jacket: It's been in the coat closet for so long, I can't even remember.
Black Maxi Dress: Ross ($13)
Black High Tops: Thrift Store ($3)
Rings: UO (Josh) and a little shop in Manitou ($10)

The world has been on my mind a lot lately. Japan specifically. I know it's already a bit late, but it finally occurred to me that there was something I could do. I will be donating 50% of all proceeds from my shop from the next week (until midnight MST on Sunday the 27th) to the American Red Cross in support of those who were affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I know that this is not enough, and that nothing I could ever do would be, but I want to do something and I want to do it on my own, without the help of my parents. I think it's more meaningful that way. I can't even imagine something of that magnitude occurring to me and the people I love. While I'm taking outfit pictures there are people looking for their loved ones, hoping that they're still alive. One word: perspective. There will be hard times ahead for a lot of people. Please help me help them.

  1. This is a lovely set of photographs.
    I really like the angles that they are done in (as with all of your photos). Kudos to your photographer.
    && your outfits are really pretty and unique.
    Great work.
