flashdance

As I was walking out of the house my fiance, Rhys looked me up and down and said, “you look like you’re going to a junior high dance circa 1985.” He followed up this ambiguous compliment (I usually take a statement like that as a “I think you look ridiculous but I’m trying not to exactly say that”) with “you look cute.” WIN for Denham! 80′s? school dance? cute? really? I take this as a huge victory because Rhys and I do not always see eye to eye in the world of woman’s fashion.

You will see that I make an even larger win when you come back tomorrow for the first instalment of an epic three part series.  Never in a million years would I expect Rhys to love my outfit since he has repeatedly told me how much he hates leopard print. And rompers.

Sweater: Vintage via Frock
Skirt: Forever 21
Heels: Michael Kors via Kolu
Tights: H&M
Earrings: Suzy Shier
Bracelet: Leah Alexandra

These photos were taken by my friend Clayton. He’s one of those talented individuals that excels in anything he attempts; photography, video, kiteboarding, snowboarding, wakeboarding, needlepoint (just joking he doesn’t needle point). I especially love the photos he’s taken of his wife Tasha who is expecting their first child in March. Thanks again Clay!
