Accessories Make The Woman!


Denim Jacket - Me Color BLOG 2

And this woman LOVES HER ACCESSORIES….especially big chunky pieces of jewelry.

So what is your favorite accessory?

A handbag, a piece of jewelry, a belt, a watch, a hat, a hair band….. the list could go on and on!!

It has been a year since I last tried a self portrait and decided to give it a whirl again.
Actually the original plan involved two little girls getting in the photo with me, but a four year old + a one year old + a self timer on the camera didn’t exactly = success. I felt defeated, but I will try again one day soon.
Can you tell that complete winter boredom has set in?

the long road

share to:
  • Sarah Halstead - I love these. Wonderful self portraits.ReplyCancel

  • Kelly And Allison - Oh I love this subject. If I hadn’t had a subject already picked out, I would have jump on it.. Great self portraits. Everyone woman should have their favorite accessories. Mine is handbag..oh and watches.. and belt.. well.. as long as they look good on me, I love them. LOL.ReplyCancel

  • Wanda - Your comment made me chuckle. Isn’t there a saying or something like “I got bored so I took some pictures”. I do encourage you to try again. Years from now your girs will hold those images of the 3 of you, when they were so young, very dear to them. I know I wish I had more of us with our Mom. I hardly have any – she was always too busy.

    Love the chunky bling and it suits you so well. I used to wear a lot of accessories but I guess I’ve pared down lately. I still have a room full so I’ll prob. go back there when the mood hits.

    Soon Lisa….soon it WILL be Spring.

  • Kayce - I too say you rocked it!! Love that first shot! LOVE it!! I’ve been wanting to do a self portrait…you’ve inspired me! As for my favorite accessory….right now it is totally has to be my hairband! LOL! All I seem to be doing right now is running (literally) and trying to play catch up! :) Someday I’ll be back in the grove of things with some cute bling.ReplyCancel

  • Buckeroomama - I LOVE those chunky pearls on the chains. I love pearls!

    My favorite accessory? I’ll have to say my watch. I feel naked without it.ReplyCancel

  • Debbie - Love the photos….your jacket pinched in at the waist give you a great shape…you luckly thing!!
    I love handbags too and tend to but one every time I am on holiday in a different country. But I would have to say, my big hoop earrings…I have a bout 10 pairs!!!! DxReplyCancel

  • Alyson and Ford - You look MARVELOUS!
    No, I don’t have any “accessories”… maybe earrings since I wear them everyday. I don’t use a purse most times, only own two belts. I do have a silver bangle bracelet I wear everyday with the Lord’s prayer inscribed. Accessorizing? Maybe you could hold a class on that for me!

    Have a great week and let the boredom be gone!

    PS your session was anything but a fail! the girls will have a good day soon for you to giggle and love all together in front of the camera. it was nice just to see you!ReplyCancel

  • Love Letters To China - You’re so funny!! These are beautiful! I always love all the jewelery you wear…it really completes your look. My sister bought me a whole slew of necklaces for Christmas. She thinks I need to add a bit of something to my look…I never knew throw on clean clothes (if you can find some) in the morning and a clip in your hair was considered a look. 😉

    Once you’re able to get those two sweeties of yours together, I’m sure your pics will be amazing. Can’t wait to see them!

    Stay warm!

    Hugs…ReplyCancel

Perhaps this trip I will be in a picture!!! One thing I did learn from you, I am wearing Pink on Gotcha!!!!

  • gracegaroutte - I love your pictures! What photo editing software do you use? I’m planning to buy something from adobe while I still have my student discount but am unsure of which program to go with. I loved the trial version of lightroom but it looks like I can’t use presets. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!
