Dinner and a Movie

My new husband(!!) and I went out the other day on a typical date... for a teenager: dinner and a movie at the mall! I was super nice and agreed to see Mad Max: Fury Road with him on the condition that he take some pictures of my outfit in front of a nice big brick wall.

Not pictured: the dumpster about 10 feet to my right. Glamorous!!

(But actually, this may be a new favorite spot for outfit shots: it's like a little courtyard--well, as I said, a courtyard full of dumpsters--so it is totally full of natural diffused light, which I hear is what you are supposed to have for this kind of thing.)

Also, full disclosure: I loved Mad Max: Fury Road. If you haven't seen it, go do it. It was beautifully shot and choreographed and totally brutal. So good.

Here's a weird photograph of me in which all my body parts look photoshopped together and my eyes look semi-audrina patridge-y (2006 anyone?):
