A Haunted Birthday

May 22, 2012

Today is my 28th birthday. Wow I can't believe it, 28 sounds so old when you think of it as two more years until 30. Luckily, thanks to my asian genes, people often question whether I am even 21. Onto my photos... I don't mean to post such an eerie and melancholy shoot on my birthday but in a way it sort of goes with my mood. I came upon this abandoned house on an evening walk, actually I am not sure if it is abandoned. It is very rundown and looks haunted, with curtains and shades covering every windows. I thought it would create an interesting backdrop for my flowy bohemian look of crochet, chiffon, and lace.

  4. Wow, I've never seen heart-shaped glasses like that-- they're almost aviator-style! I love them! Cute, but not too kitsch. I love how you paired it with the dusty rose crochet top and beautiful rosebud bracelet-- so many amazing details that aren't overpowering all together. Perfect!
