nervously new heights (aka zippy in zebra)


I can’t say that I’ve ever gotten nervous while taking my blog photos…until these photos. I don’t know if it was the heights, fear of falling off a ledge onto a conveyer belt, or the small space, but I got nervous (and nervous fast) on this shoot. Despite the jitters, I ended up loving the photos. There’s no height I won’t go to for fashion! (That’s not true. This is probably the most I would do.) And don’t worry, I totally did not fall onto the conveyor belt. PHEW.


Dress: Issa for Banana Repbulic ($10 marked down from $140)

Tights: Vera Wang for Kohl’s (gift)

Boots: DSW ($15 marked down from $50)

Necklace: Nordstrom Rack (approx $5 marked down from approx $20)


Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Even though this is a very boldly printed dress, it was surprisingly easy to change the styling of it. Here’s how I styled it last:


It’s gotten a bit cooler since I last wore the dress, so I added full tights and boots (and a long sleeve t-shirt) underneath. I also added a short necklace versus a long necklace. A few people even asked if I had worn the dress before. Changing up shoes, necklaces, and accessories can go a long way in changing up a boldly printed piece. 

2) The tights are my first piece from the Vera Wang for Kohl’s collection- Simply Vera. I don’t live near a Kohl’s, so I rarely go, but I’ve been impressed by the Vera Wang pieces that I’ve seen others wearing. The pieces are unique, edgy, high quality, and well priced. Kohl’s, from what I hear, also has a lot of sales, so it may even be worth waiting for the Vera Wang pieces to go on sale. I will further investigate this and report back.  If you want to check it out yourself, below is the link:


Anyone else going out of their comfort zone in their photos? In their prints?

Thanks for stopping by, readers! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

  1. Love your outfit! You know i am such an animal print junkie. Boy there are some precarious poses there!! True blog dedication xo

  2. your pictures are AMAZING! (as well as your outfit and photographer!) i am scared of heights so i could never do this! i love your use of space and how artistic it is 😀

  3. I’m afraid of heights so you won’t see me balancing high up anywhere. The things we do in the name of fashion 😉 I love this dress, I remember it from your last post. The knee high boots and tights are a great winter touch! Perhaps you should start getting a stunt woman for your photo shoots 😉 BE Careful!

  4. Ah beautiful! If by comfort zone you mean going out in the cold then yes yes I have been going out of my comfort zone for about 20 minutes too long. 😀 Love the dress want/need it. And ahhh I love Vera for Khols. The sales are phenomenal not to mention the Khols cash! I love going in there and getting 10 dollars off stuff. 🙂 xx

  5. That dress is fantastic! And you know what you need to do? You need to blog about your hair because it always looks amazing. Seriously.
