The first time I wore these tights to work, my boss called me a bluestocking. She couldn't remember what it meant but she knew it wasn't derogatory, so we looked it up. According to Wikipedia, a bluestocking is an "educated, intellectual woman," and it has had it's share of negative connotation in the past (mostly in connection to female frumpiness). I'll take that.
I was a bit worried about the balance between the volume in the skirt and the button-up top. In all my iterations with this skirt, I rarely wear it with a button-up. Not sure why. But it turned out fine. I stuck to neutrals with my shirt and jewelry, since the printed tights and belt are already pretty loud. Plus, don't you just love an outfit that comes in under $100 total?
This is the second time I've worn tights with open-toed shoes. Can someone please tell me how you keep your feet from slipping out and the area around the toes from getting too thin? I kept walking out of my shoes all day since the tights were so slick, and you can totally see my toenails through the tights.
I got a wireless camera remote from my brother for Christmas and used it both yesterday and today. I had read that the Nikon K3100 wasn't compatible with a wireless remote and sent my brother to investigate, since he's been dabbling in photography for years and has shot some weddings in the Houston area (email me if you want his info). He found one. And it works. See?
What is your preferred camera equipment? How did you learn (or how are you learning) to master your technique?
