This just in...

It appears I have fallen back in love with my polka dot tights. I think I OD'd a little bit last year and had to take a short break from them. This week, however, I think I wore them about 3 times and the year is only 8 days old! Guess, I better pace myself... Speaking of which, I have to admit I've barely had time to relish the fact that we are in 2011 now, aside from writing it on letters a couple times. The week was extremely hectic and I don't want to say that's my excuse for not posting this outfit sooner but...well, it's the honest truth!

Better late than never and plus it's a good chance to show off a couple of my Christmas presents. I have to say, I did pretty well this year. One gift in particular being this UO sheer top that my adorable 15 year old brother picked out for me all by himself. He has been picking things out for me since he was tiny and now he's about 6 feet tall (incidentally great goalkeeper - regional team and everything) - just to paint the picture of why it's really funny that he is so good at spotting things for me...

The other Christmas present I used on this day was my new limited edition Diana f+ which the Brit surprised me with on Christmas morning. I'm still not sure how he was able to hide that huge box from me in our little house but it was a well executed surprise present. Now if only I could use the darn thing right. The first roll was developed yesterday; some of them are great most of them...well, let's just say I need some practice! I'll try and post a few soon.

Polka dot tights are never a bad thing to fall in love with. I have the Black Jack Diana F+! Put some photos up, just posted some myself of my friend in my pond.

I love that your brother is awesome at shopping for you--I have sisters & they still can't spot my style! Also that new camera is pretty amazing; can't wait to see the pics you take with it.
