It’s time to show you my Sew The Show: Friends look! (For more information on Sew The Show, go HERE.)
To prepare you for what you’re about to see, I want you to let your mind wander back to the late 90s and early 00s. Remember the big events in your life. You wanted to remember them, of course! So what did you do? You went to the drug store and get a disposable camera! Like this one:
Then at the big event (or, in Chandler’s case, another person’s big event) you wound up the flash, (wind, wind, wind, wind, wind, wind) then finally took your picture. You never really knew if you got any good ones.
Then, you know the drill, it was off to the drug store to get them developed. Oh the waiting, the wondering! Did they come out? How did I look? Well, this is the Friend’s Challenge, and if Rachel was going to take pictures of her cute outfit, she would have done so with a disposable camera. So, that’s what I did.
My drug store’s machine jammed and they had to send my film to another location. Then when I went to pick it up it was under the wrong name. One hour photo my ass.
All of this is totally incongruous with blogging.
We bloggers love taking photos, uploading them right to the computer, editing them and posting them, all within a couple of hours. So imagine me, with no back up pictures, trusting the whole blog photo shoot to a disposable camera and a friend. And waiting on those prints. I was pretty terrified! So, let’s see what I got!
Pics WITHOUT flash:
Look at the giant coffee cup! Unlike Central Perk, this place charges $2.45 for coffee in the big cup.
Imagine you saw a person taking another person’s photo in a coffee shop, with a disposable camera. What would you do? Take a picture of them with your phone so you could ridicule them later? Well some jerky guy did. I will call him Jerky Von Macbook.
In case Jerky Von Macbook is reading this, you can tag the photo #alidamakes or #sewtheshow so I can at least see it. KTHANKS.
I will do a separate post about the dress, because it really deserves it’s own post, but in case you want to copy it, it’s the Basic. Dress by Cali Faye Collection and IT.IS.AMAZING.Remember when you would get your pictures developed only to discover the best ones had a finger in it? THAT.
Now pics WITH flash:
Back in the day I used all flash all the time unless I was in broad daylight, and now I remember why.
Without flash you can’t really see any details. This couch is right by a window in the coffee shop, and yet the photos without flash are muddy. (Although, people put filters on their Instagram photos to get the same effect, amiright?) With flash my face always looks really white. Here I thought my foundation was super white back then, turns out it was the blinding flash of the camera!
Can we talk for a minute about my Rachelesque hair? Hot rollers. I had forgotten all about them. They’re magical.
I cut up this jean jacket to make the vest. Honestly it doesn’t look half bad! I might actually wear it in public again.
