Sometimes you just have to take the prompt literally, right? And what better time to do that than when you're required to taste multiple wines? As you can see, I happily pounced on this opportunity and before I knew it I was a few too many bottles deep. What a mess!
When I started thinking about this prompt last week, I knew I wanted to wear something super cute (thanks Coquitlam Value Village for making the choice easy!!) and I knew I wanted to look like a messy drunkard.
Success? I think so. Plus, to top everything off, this photoshoot FORCED me to conquer my fear of posing in public. When I suggested this idea, Ian said we could go up to Pyramid Lake and borrow a ladder from the resort (Ian does IT for them), so we made the journey up there Monday evening, only to find my dreamed-up location was swarming with children making mud pies, parents making dinner and young men fishing. Yikes! But despite all the people, I powered through. We got out the ladder. Ian got out his boom, climbed above me and took a bunch of shots, while I pretended we were all alone on a desert island. It really wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.
From head to toe:
Dress: Value Village

What would you wear wine tasting?
P.S. I am so in love with my new Value Village dress. I honestly can't say enough about it. It's so perfect. I love the fit. I love the pattern. I love the colours and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pockets.
