Shrinking Universe

blackdress

With all this crazy cold weather lately, I was pretty excited to see some sun.  It may be only 48 degrees out, but at least it was sunny!  I was lucky enough to remember my camera when Kevin and I went out to run some errands or else I wouldn't have these pictures at all.  I'm certainly not used to carrying it around but I'm trying to be a bit more adventurous with my photos.  Oh, and I also can't remember the last time I wore this much black.  Weird.

Does anyone else feel uncomfortable wearing sunglasses in photos?  I've only done it one time before (here) and it felt weird then too.  I usually like to show my makeup so that's why I don't make it a habit, but what do you think?
 
I went to see Muse last night in downtown LA.  Kevin and I see them every time they're in town.  Even if they've completely "sold out" (it's sad but true), I have been a fan for long before they were even known in the US.  It's odd to see a band go from nothing, playing shows in no name clubs, to selling out several nights in the biggest Los Angeles concert arena.  You want to be happy for them and be annoyed that they're mainstream at the same time.  I'm sure somebody agrees with me here!

  1. It's a lovely outfit <3 Heart the tights.
    Yeah it's weird for me to take snaps while wearing sunglasses . Sometimes eyes move here and there and the glasses reflect them ( means an awkward pose :D)

  2. You look beautiful in this all black! It really makes your lovely hair stand out and shine. I like sunglasses in photos. First, it's another fashion element and adds a bit more personality. Also, in my case sometimes the sun is much too harsh, so I need them otherwise I'm squinting in all my pics, haha. Not flattering. Like you I rarely wear them though.

  13. You have no idea how jealous I am of your bare arms and sunglasses. You look great in all black! It really makes your hair pop, it's a shame you have change it :( And I absolutely know what you mean! I hate being person that stops liking bands when they get mainstream, but I'm guilty of it. Probably too much haha

  14. You look lovely all in black though and can't go wrong with such a classic look.

    Also love the ring shot- which reminds me, aren't you getting married today or in a day or two? Congrats/Good luck!

  16. All black isn't a bad look, especially since I think of your gorge red hair hue as another color accessory!

  17. First, let me get those tights. Second, those sunglasses in your other post are my favorite. Third, I totally understand about sell out bands -- two of my favorite bands went from playing dives at $10 a pop to selling out in seconds for over $50, doing commercials and extremely main stream stuff. It's strange and I always feel weird going to the shows now, but still do. Also isn't Kate Hudson dating (or married) to a Muse member? I love her. Anyways, Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) was at the show last night tweeting photos and I was extremely jealous you were there. Lastly, for 48 degrees, you look warm as can be!

  18. Your ring is just gorgeous! I usually actually really like wearing sunglasses in pictures because then I don't have to worry about making my face look nice haha but it's too cloudy right now for sunglasses in Portland!

  19. I think you look awesome in sunglasses! Sometimes sunglasses are needed when it is super bright outside! :) Love your black look and the belt is the perfect pop of color!

  20. This is such a pretty outfit! I love how you added colors and prints to this almost all black outfit :) I especially love your cute polka dot tights! I have actually never worn sunglasses in my posts because I accidentally stepped on them before I started my blog but I think I would feel uncomfortable too since I wouldn't be used to wearing them.

  23. I love the shoes!! And I think I know exactly which Muse concert you are talking about, so many people I know went to see them that night! I know exactly what you are talking about though...I like my artists to be successful but I hate that when they are so mainstream that it's much harder to get to the front to see them :/

  24. I don't think it's too wear to wear sunglasses in photos. For me though, sometimes it is necessary! My eyes are somewhat sensitive! Anyways, I think you look darling. I love this dress.

  29. I love Muse! How awesome that you got to see them - and I know what you mean about being annoyed when your favorite bands go mainstream.

    Cute tights! :)

  30. I love the black. I think it's chic.

  31. Personally I love to wear sunglasses in photos because then I can cheat and not put on any eye makeup ; )

    Black is such a classic non colour and always elegant but I have to say I prefer you in brighter colours. Seems to match your personality better.

  32. Girl I completely agree with you! I like muse before they were very big too (though I'm sure not as far back as you) But do you know the now crazy popular band FUN.? Well the lead singer, Nate Ruess used to have a band called The Format a few years back that NO ONE knew and they were my favorite band ever. Then they broke up and he went on to form FUN. and completely changed his style and now everyone knows his name. I can't help but be disgusted hahaha!

    Anyway, I love how you made black not boring with the pops of color and dot tights! I love that pink belt.

  36. I am the same way! I have loved Muse forever and saw them a several times - the most recent in The Redskins football stadium. I couldn't believe the number of people...and yes, definitely felt annoyed too...haha.

    Your tights are perfection! Now I only wish I could be walking around in a cute dress like that right now - temps here are in the single digits :(
