It was my 20th birthday on the 25th. My mom bought me some beauty items and we went thrifting and found swimsuits and furs. Cake, ice cream, fun simple stuff! This is almost exactly what I wore and I liked it so much I recreated and shot in it. It reminds me of Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 Ready to Wear. The top was found in the vest section at a thrift store for $8. I couldn't resist putting my hands all over the sequins. I'm actually not sure if it's a vest or top since it zips up the front. It's also a little big and has wool underneath so I sweat my ass off while wearing it but I love it.

I've obviously been playing with lighting a lot. I used two different bulb colors (green and red) and everything else is natural light. I don't have anything fancy, one of the lights is an old reptile terrarium light that has a clamp, haha. I think I got a little carried away but I'm still learning anyway so why not?
