So, a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to buy a “family portrait” promo deal at a local Venture Photography Studio. Basically, for $50, you get an hour long photo shoot and one framed portrait. Knowing that the sitting fee is usually a couple hundred bucks, I figured what the hell.
And what sold me is the studio. Their brand concept is “anything goes”— wear what you want, goof around, have a food fight! They don’t care. They want to catch a moment that is completely unique to you, and they encourage props and background music to set the mood.
So yesterday I went looking for what to wear. I want it very Muchy. Very colorful. Very sparkly…
And I want tutus.
I stopped in at Betsey Johnson- the QUEEN of Muchness and tried on this $400 teal pompom of a prom dress. (are 34 year old women allowed to wear prom dresses?? )
I LOVED it. I felt fantastic in it. And it’s the very same color as my sofa! But, it was $400.
Buy, wear, return?? Tempting, but very not Muchy.
I left it there.
Then I headed to century 21 and found a glorious $12 alternative.
You’ll have to wait to see that when the portraits happen. 🙂
