it seems to be getting harder and harder for me to take shop photos lately. i feel so uninspired and usually just throw on a semi-clean t-shirt and stand against our white wall and hope the light through the windows is nice enough. these work fairly well at times, but i wanted to get back to the more thoughtful styling i used to employ for my shop images. honestly, i've been having a bout of low self-esteem and body image (stress related, i think, which makes me want to avoid the camera) so i'm trying to leap out of that, too. so monday i set aside lots of time to take hundreds of photos in hope that i'd get at least a handful that i liked.

(new - softspoken solid beanie in crimson. the scarf is also by me, but not in shop just yet.)
