This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Fashion Adventures with My New Camera

February, 20, 2015

I was especially excited to take these fashion pictures for a couple of reasons. First, I got to wear two of my favorite brands… Diane von Furstenberg and Valentino. DVF made the flattering sheath. Valentino crafted the heels with his ever-popular rock studs. Fashion Adventures with My New Camera A And the matching rainbow clutch!

My last one was so small it actually fit in that clutch, so it was convenient—but obstinate, and last week it flat-out refused to take any more pics. Fashion Adventures with My New Camera C My mom was the one who took these shots. We decided to break-in my new camera during a girls’ night out and top it off with pizza. We wanted a secluded place for the camera practice so we wouldn’t bother anyone. Fashion Adventures with My New Camera D A film exec I worked with had recently stayed at a charming hotel. She found the atmosphere relaxing, and explained that guests “went to bed around 10pm.” Fashion Adventures with My New Camera E So I thought this was just the place to christen my new camera. But somehow that so-called secluded hotel turned into a social hub, with people bustling about. Everyone asked what we were doing and several wanted to join in the fun. The entire night became a picture-taking party, and our 8 pm dinner had to be moved to midnight:)
