Menswear Monday: Chumash



      Some of you may have noticed occasions here and here where I have showcased slightly unusual photography with my hand crafted accessories on display. Today, for "Menswear Monday" I am featuring my boyfriend Shahin, who is wearing a dyed turquoise and banded agate necklace. Shahin is half Native American (a decendent of the local Chumash tribe no less) and I was inspired by his heritage to take these photographs. He is wearing traditional Chumash face markings with a vintage button up shirt. I love the bands of layered rock in the agate necklace he has on. Fashion tip: not sure if many fellows know this but I believe that wearing some type of interesting necklace is a great way to attract conversations in social gatherings. People often stop to ask about whatever stone or interesting item you have on!





      I also took a photography class in school last semester and I have been experimenting with my new camera ever since. I'm truthfully not very skilled since the previous photo class I took was in high school where I only used a manual black and white film camera, this new Canon Rebel is a foreign object to me. However I somehow managed to adjust the settings to manual and remember a couple of my old habits. Please bare with me on this journey to improve my blog's photography!

Yours,
Nico

  6. Nico, your boyfriend is a hottie! HaHaHa His hue, hair and eyes are simply gorgeous. You lucky girl! You take great pictures girl! What did I get from the MAC Archie Collection? Mainly everything Betty! HAHAHA I didn't plan it that way, it's just I liked her soft color scheme. Everything just came today. Well accept one thing that should be here Wednesday. I promise to put a post up for Valentine's day. I love the little boxes they come in. Nordstrom (online) has the collection. So does Macy's and of course MAC. MAC was selling out of stuff, so I would hurry. They're increasing prices on eBAY! Overcharging people. Sorry, I haven't been blogging much lately. Sometimes I get out of the mood. LOL
