At the Governor {part I}

Photobucket

Monday my mother in law Lisa of Light and Shadow and I decided to make the best of a rainy day and have a photoshoot (or two) just for the fun of it. I really should take her up on photography offers more often! Thanks to my brother in law holding the flash we got some dramatic photos inside The Governor Hotel, a fabulously elegant hotel built in 1909. They were very accommodating and just let us shoot wherever!

You might recognize this suit from my latest Expo finds post. The only thing better than a perfectly tailored suit is a perfectly tailored suit with a full skirt. Although this outfit looks quite a bit like the imaginary outfit I pieced together a few weeks ago...

Anyway, enjoy part one of this photo set, I have another set in the hotel, and a completely different look in a  cafe!

That suit was cute on the hanger but just a little, I don't know, underwhelming.

Put it on your adorable figure and it becomes STELLAR!
