8.2.10

going west

This outfit just happened. I never thought of a "westernized" look or cowboys. But when I wore this flannel shirt (which my gorgeous friend Roxy left to me) and added leather vest (which I bought with Roxy when she was here in NYC) to add a body, it all came to place. I put on a scarf and cowboy boots to perfect the look. I really love how it turned out.
About the ladder, I just took the advantage of playing with it while the fixit man was working on something in the kitchen.

My brother and I were going out to get his broken iPod fixed. While I was taking my pictures, he barged in to mess with it. 
Instead of kicking up a fuss (strangely, I was not in the mood to do so), I made him strike a pose.
Cheers for my not-so-little brother! =)
****LOVE STRUCK****

Love the look- the plaid is fantastic and the texture with the vest and boots is fab.

I love this look -- the plaid and leather look so great together. I've been wondering how to wear leather vests, and you've done it so well here without looking like you're wearing a costume.
Your brother popping into your shots is so funny. You two are so photogenic! :)
