Something Extra

I you want a skirt that's a little bit extra and that will turn heads, then this tiered gradient tulle skirt is for you! In fact, wearing it made me feel just like Carrie Bradshaw in the opening credits of Sex in the City! I wore the skirt out to dinner a couple weeks ago and it was a huge hit, gathering compliments wherever I went! One place that we visited before dinner was the LACMA's "Urban Lights" sculpture, which is essentially just a lot of street lamps grouped together to make a visually arresting outdoor sculpture or installation. You've no doubt seen it on other blogs or Instagram accounts because it's probably one of the most famous photo locations in Los Angeles.

One of the things that did not make for an easy photo shoot at this particular location was the large number of people there. Although the museum itself was not very busy at the time, there were throngs of people swarming around the lampposts trying to get that perfect "Insta" shot. In addition to the crowds, there was also quite a bit of wind on this particular day and it was blowing my hair and skirt around to no end! Given these undesirable conditions, however, we still got a handful of pretty good shots (in addition to a lot of duds!) so I can't complain too much. Wearing something that is a little bit extra sometimes also means going that extra mile just for the perfect shot!

  1. Oh my goodness, how can you NOT love this skirt?? You look fabulous!

    I hope you are having a great week so far!


  2. Gah, Katie! This is brilliant! Love this look and the background is perfect even with the wind. This display of street lamps is in a scene from the movie Friends with Benefits with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, right? Or am I thinking of a different movie? That movie might actually be in NYC and I am thinking of a different romantic comedy. Sheesh. It’s going to drive me crazy! Thanks for sharing and linking up!



Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
