Alejandro and I watched The Virgin Suicides (rented it from the last Blockbuster in our neighborhood, so sad...) and took these Coppola-inspired pictures. We took them at a park near my house and a couple on my street, because of the suburban feel. I really liked using the flash, because I feel like even though the pictures don't look professional, you can still get relatively clear photos at night! Totally underrated and stuff, am I right?
I WILL LAY ME DOWN, LIKE A BRIDGE OOOOVER TROUBLED TRAFFIC, I WILL LAY ME DOWWWWNNN...
These above pictures were shot while a bunch of basketball players were playing a few feet away.
They were looking at us like we were idiots.
"Guise, can we use your court for a second? I need to take pictures for my blog..."
What I'm wearing: Mother's old shift dress, Thrifted belt, American Apparel knee socks (The only ones that are long enough!), DIY saddle shoe-style Keds
What Alejandro's wearing: Thrifted Pierre Cardin shirt, Target jeans, Skechers shoes (I think...?), My thrifted blazer, my DIY leather bowtie, Kenneth Cole aviators, thrifted belt.
So anyways, we had a fun time taking these, and I had a good excuse to dig through my mom's closet!
(Found a couple gems, perhaps I'll show you later)
Off to write a letter to my Congressman!
