psychedelic camouflage











I can’t believe it has only been 3 months (officially tomorrow) since I finally decided to stop talking about creating a blog and actually made one. Ever since then, my family and friends have become increasingly involved and enthusiastic about it. Not only do they help me take these beautiful pictures, but are full of ideas and inspiration for different locations I use in new posts. Needless to say, I am beyond thrilled and grateful for their help and support along with the feedback from all of my ah-mazing readers – you guys are awesome!

With that said, the above location was a surprise from my boyfriend who is rather fond of giving surprises, unless someone surprises him. I am not too fond of them myself, but I was very excited to see this graffiti wonderland surface before me. Apparently it serves as a colorful outdoor rock climbing gym, but I saw it as the perfect backdrop to this bright dress that I got for my birthday a few months back (he did pretty good I think). I adore wearing vibrant colors and love how well this dress kind of popped out and blended in at the same time against the artwork. I’m certainty glad I was introduced to this place!

  17. Diana, I love this photoshoot soooo much! It's absolutely hilarious, and the dress is lovely of course. I have to admit, with the exception of my boyfriend and sister, I haven't told anyone about my blog yet. I'm sure my mom's reaction would be something like, "you should be focusing on getting a job in London..." Bah! I continue to love your style!

  24. SHAZAM! Perfect dress for the location and vice versa. Your boyfriend's a whiz at photo scouting! (When I ask my fella to take my photo, he kinda smirks and rolls his eyes a little bit. Sigh.)
    That second shot might be my favourite — it's like you're almost melting into the graffiti madness.

    Oh, and the outfit ain't bad either. ;) I especially love the cutout back!
