This jacket is my most complimented article of clothing I've ever owned. I can't tell you the number of times I've been stopped on the street, hollered at across the road ("fabulous jacket!"), or been asked if someone can pet me. And, I will be the first to admit, I EAT IT UP, hook, line, and sinker. My husband is always teasing me about my unabashed love for compliments--I seriously can't help it. This self-help book I'm reading right (Better Than Perfect; I highly recommend it) now is pointing out my incessant need for affirmation from others, which makes me feel like I should not be so desperate for people to like what I'm wearing and what I'm doing...but hey, at least I have a sense of humor about my neediness.
It's been a crazy couple weeks for me personally, and while sometimes I feel like walking away from this blog because it can be incredibly stressful to find time to fit it in, I see a shoot like this and it completely re-energizes me. Nahal and I work so hard to get the right lighting, the right focus, hell, even the right outfits! So when I come home to find a shoot full of great photos, it makes me feel like maybe we're getting something right.
Feel free to compliment below. :)
