Some lazy Sunday

March 19, 2012

So as my previous post was really boring, here’s another semi boring post to make up for it. Two boring posts make a good one, everyone knows that.

This is what I wore on a lazy Sunday a couple of weeks ago. I have to say that I was playing around with the photo earlier and I am not impressed. The combination of grey light (the cloud coverage in this country is almost permanent) + a point and shoot camera with limited options and quality = a result less than perfect. I also fooled around on Paint.net, an open source image editing software and I am not too impressed either. For basic image editing such as playing around with saturation or contrast and cropping it is fine, but if you want to do something more, it’s a bit more problematic. Having worked with Adobe Photoshop professionally for many years, working with something like this is really stifling and frustrating, but at the moment I can’t afford to buy the license for it. As far as I could tell from online reviews it is supposed to be the best open source software of the sort, but if anyone has any other suggestion, I am all ears!

Anyway, I thought I’d share it as I am getting rid of some of the clothes in it some time soon. I also added some blossoms I walked past, so pretty!

Sunnies – YSL via TK Maxx (believe it or not it was a little sunny earlier)
Cardi – Zara
Flower necklace – A present (but I think it’s from George)
Houndstooth Dress – Zara
Tights – Calzedonia
Shoes – Springfield
