Channeling Katniss





Dress & Belt (Calvin Klein find at TJMaxx); Necklace (Limited);
Shoes (Nine West); Bracelets & Earrings (Nordstrom)
Ryan Seidel Photography

Maybe it's the braid... maybe it's the District-like scenery... or maybe it's the desire to be a kick ass heroine who saves the world...  But I'm feeling very Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games in these pictures (post Capitol makeover). Instead of a fire dress I'm wearing a LBD.. and nothing makes me feel more commanding than a black dress (well, maybe my Packers jersey). In my book, the power of the little black dress trumps  a bow and arrow anytime ;)

Hannah @ Tattoos and Pearls said...

I really need to read the Hunger Games. I can't believe I haven't yet but this just really reminded me that I need to read it.
While I don't get the movie reference, I really love the black dress with blue necklace. Such a fun contrast!

Genie said...

Oooo I do believe that you could use your stilettos as an alternative for arrows, not only do they make your outfit a little bit edgier, but they look sharp and deadly...lol. The necklace is so cute and reminds me of the J. Crew bubble necklace, and your braid definitely reminds me of Katniss.
