Yep, that definitely sums up my life – cold and awkward.
These photos were taken a few weeks ago in Salem during an outing with Sara and Cody. We love those guys so much, so it’s always a blast when we get together. The plan was to hit up an exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum, then visit one of our favorite clothing shops, Modern Millie.
Sara was kind enough to take some photos of me, but I will admit to being the worst model! Once the coat came off, I couldn’t stop shivering (and complaining, lol). My nose got red, my eyes were watery, and I was getting self-conscious as people were walking by. Augh.
Luckily (and likely because she is a good photographer/pose coach), we managed to get a few good ones.
This dress was actually a birthday gift from Sara, and my second Bernie Dexter! This style is the Rachel, and although the same size as my Kelly (XS), this one fits a lot smaller – which is good since my Kelly is a bit big. Ideally though, I think I would want one right in between the two. More fitted than the Kelly, with a bit more breathing room than the Rachel (ha!). Funny that the sizes vary so much within the same brand!
We had a great time at the museum. I had been dying to see an exhibit titled, “It’s Alive! Classic Horror and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection.”
Kirk Hammett?! I have been a HUGE Metallica fan since elementary school (my first two live shows were Metallica, who I saw in 5th and 6th grade). I have seen them a bunch of times since then, and although they had a few misses (St. Anger? lol), I have remained a fan. Kirk Hammett is the lead guitarist for the band, so I knew it was an exhibit I couldn’t miss. Plus, I love the aesthetic of the whole horror movie genre.
The exhibit did not disappoint!
Sara and I posed outside of Modern Millie too, before we headed in to shop. I bought two ADORABLE dresses that I can’t wait to share here! Until then, you can check out Sara’s post from our day in Salem.
