gloom, gloom, and what else? oh yeah, more gloom.

Okay, I know that they say 'April showers bring May flowers,' but right now I'm not feeling the love. It rained almost all day, and when it wasn't raining, it was extremely cloudy and humid (which always means bad hair day for me). And guess what else? Its supposed to rain/be cloudy all week! I have 3 amazing spring-y outfits waiting for good weather to come around.

Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. golden sun, please shine down on me?

Okay, okay. Will stop with the Debbie Downer-ness. I should be happy, at least I know for sure its not going to snow again till next winter...[and if it does, thats messed up!]

As you may or may not have noticed, I am almost always wearing the same shoes in my posts. Don't get me wrong; I LOVE SHOES! I just don't have many pairs. Shoes are so expensive; I'd rather get a lot of clothes then one pair of shoes! I know, I know, you vintage/thrift experts find amazing shoes for under $20, but I'm not so lucky. I have an awkward size [8.5/9] that I can never find...its always 6s, 7s, then skips to 9.5s and 10s.

Don't fret! I am going shoe shopping tomorrow, and I am hoping to pick up some boots on sale, some heels/pumps, and/or some gladiator sandals. xD

There is something about creepy/old/abandoned looking things that really intrigues and inspires me. I live in a rather old house, so there are a few areas of my house that look a bit shakey. I love taking pictures of them and hanging out around them...I don't know why. When I show friends these pictures, they just question me; 'Zoe why are you taking pictures of junk?' or 'Eeew...this is somewhere in your house?'.

I guess, photography-wise, I love urban creepy pictures that makes the viewer uncomfortable...I really REALLY want to take a photoshoot of someone wearing really fashionable things in strange creepy places in the city.. *cough* BELLE *cough*

What do you guys think? Abandoned areas; work of art or pile of junk?
