Well, I bought the outfit for my new author promotion photos. My last promotion photos were done in 2007 (the sepia picture is me) and I’m a different person now. Mostly I gained some weight but I’m older with more age lines in my face these days. Oh well! Hopefully I did okay with this dress and jewelry selection for the new photos being made next month. I didn’t want anything too loud or flashy but the photos have to sell both historical fiction and paranormal books. I bought a cheaper teal lace dress as well in case this one looks bad on me. Thank goddess for affordable shops like Forever 21. Almost nothing is over $30.
