Thursday

even more suitcase photos!

my room mate Karla Jensen took these photos of me last Monday for her series of people and their collections. In my case, I somehow came to collect suitcases. I have a pink one that is not pictured because it didn't quite fit with the color scheme.
The dress I am wearing is from Salvation Army in Litchfield, IL. (it was 50 percent off day!) The belt is from Goodwill, too.
She also took my picture with a view camera (where you have to look through it under the black cloak). I am excited to see how it turns out for her.
here is Karla (she's a photo major at U of I) using the view 
camera, just to give you an idea of what it looks like!
Here's a really "emotional" picture I took of Karla.. haha 
love, polly

I love your pile of suitcases and your plaid dress. Anything plaid that doesn't look like a school girl gets an A+ from me!

Cute dress. I can't find a plaid shirtdress anywhere. I am going home in October where my search will continue in their thrift stores. :) Love the "roomie" picture.

Hi Sweetheart! I saw your comment on your feature and just wanted to say again that I think you are lovely and that I am very happy to have featured you. I am sorry that you got that comment, but I hope that you saw the post I wrote about it as well, I wanted to adress it out of respect. I have been critized for not aiming my blog solely at plus size women, but I don`t want to limit my self, and I am more than my size, as are we all.
sending you lots of love!!!
